At Coventry Escrow and Title Company, LLC (“CETCO”), we close for you!

My name is J. Clay Cole, owner of CETCO.  I am a 1993 graduate of Rhodes College and a 1996 graduate of Chicago-Kent College-of Law. I have been a licensed attorney since 1996 and have practiced real estate law since 1999.  That year, I began working for Southern Escrow Title Company in Germantown (later absorbed by First American Title Insurance Company) where I handled thousands of residential real estate closings.  I then transitioned to the National Commercial Services Division of First American, where I worked in commercial real estate law.  In 2005, I began working for the law firm of Farris Mathews Branan Bobango Helen & Dunlap PLC (recent name change to Farris Bobango Branan PLC), where I specialized in residential and commercial real estate as well as all manner of business transactional matters. 

Since 1999, I would estimate I have handled over 5,000 residential closing transactions, during which time I have developed the ability to tailor the closing specifically to the borrower’s age, experience and expectations.  I created CETCO to be able to create a unique closing environment in which the client comes first.  I am a title insurance agent for First American Title Insurance Company.

Please contact me if you are interested in buying, selling or refinancing.  Also, please refer to my Preferred Business Associates below.  These are individuals who I respect as professionals in their field of expertise and to whom I feel secure in referring my clients.
