Mid Valley Title was founded by local businessmen as the first title company to be located in Chico. We opened our doors in 1957 and shortly thereafter opened offices in Oroville and Paradise. In 1965 First American Title became our underwriter and majority shareholder and we joined the First American family of companies.
The First American Title Insurance Company is one of the largest title insurers in the nation and traces its history to 1889. With direct operations and an extensive network of agents throughout the United States and abroad, First American Title provides comprehensive title insurance coverage and professional services for purchases, construction, refinances, or equity loans. The company's thorough searches, title clearance, and insurance help to produce clear property titles and enable the efficient transfer of real estate.
