Digital real estate title firm to open new Med City location

Doma, a digital title provider that “uses machine intelligence and its proprietary technology solutions to transform residential real estate, making closings instant and affordable,” is setting up a 1,000-square-foot office in First Alliance Credit Union’s “cooperative” complex at 2483 Commerce Drive NW.

A San Francisco-based firm that uses technology to streamline real estate deals will soon launch a Med City office.

Doma, a digital title provider that “uses machine intelligence and its proprietary technology solutions to transform residential real estate, making closings instant and affordable,” is setting up a 1,000-square-foot office in First Alliance Credit Union ’s “cooperative” complex at 2483 Commerce Drive NW.

The hope is to open the office in mid-December with a “handful” of staff members. Doma will join Moka Coffee and Great Harvest Bread Co. as tenants in the complex that opened in June 2020.

Doma and its family of brands — States Title, North American Title Co. and North American Title Insurance Co. — work with banks and other lenders to speed up and streamline the real estate closing process. Some Doma clients include Wells Fargo, Chase and Sierra Pacific Mortgage.

The firm has more than 80 offices across the U.S. with 13 in Minnesota. What inspired the California real estate technology company to open its 14th Minnesota location in Rochester?

“As a 30-year title industry veteran and southern Minnesota local, Rochester has long been on the list of markets where I’ve wanted to do business. It is a booming, vibrant city with great people and a strong economy,” stated Doma’s Midwest region managing director Alex Grundhoffer via email. “Doma has the technology and resources to provide truly a differentiated closing experience to Rochester that is worthy of the market.”
