Why We Exist

For too long, the real estate process has been intentionally convoluted, creating confusion and helplessness across the board. We’re changing that—one transaction at a time.

An Honest Partner

Timios is the Greek word for “honest,” and that has guided everything we do since 2008. Our mission is simple: to provide an unparalleled real estate transaction experience for buyers, sellers, and professionals.

By empowering our customers through innovation, providing total transparency, and simplifying every step, we’ve revolutionized the process to give our customers the control they deserve. With over 380,000 transactions and $62 billion in total closings, we’re proud to say this approach has made Timios one of the fastest-growing title and settlement services companies in America.
