Prairie Title – 30 Years and Going Strong

For over 30 years Frank and Mary Pellegrini have given their all to the North Avenue Business District both professionally through their business Prairie Title and their community work with various organizations. Frank was one of the North Avenue Business Association’s first presidents and has been an active volunteer in the real estate and legal community. Mary has been a longtime advocate for infant health and child welfare. This is their story of Prairie Title, a NABA member you need to know.

In 1983, Frank Pellegrini had a vision: Build a title company that would flourish in its home market of Oak Park/ River Forest and beyond by taking a personal interest in each customer’s success. In the ensuing decades, Prairie Title has developed into a profitable and dynamic business that assures a smooth process for selling and buying real estate throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. We started at Fair Oaks and North Avenue in the back offices of DiFebo Realty. In 1985 we moved to Lake Street in River Forest. We continued to outgrow our space and in 1988 we moved to Ridgeland and Chicago Avenue. Ten years late, bursting at the seams, we made our final move to Grove and North Avenues.

Prairie Title’s growth is directly attributable to the quality of our people. Our professional staff members have decades of experience in the industry, and they are dedicated to the notion that great customer service begins with them. As a result, our clients have easy access to dedicated real estate professionals in an environment where decisions are made quickly, but not imprudently.

We are direct and maintain a no-nonsense operation. Because of our straightforward approach and unmatched industry expertise, we number among our customers some of the largest mortgage and lending institutions in the Chicago area and in the country, as well as an equally impressive roster of real estate attorneys.

Our strength lies in the fact that we provide our customers with the convenience, flexibility and adaptability of a small company as well as the strength and security of five of the nation’s largest title insurance underwriters -· Fidelity National Title, Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company, Chicago Title, Attorneys’ Title Guaranty and Old Republic. We’ve grown steadily through the years and serve all eight counties in metropolitan: Chicago through 11 offices and closing locations.

We provide unparalleled expertise and the finest service within our profession in a friendly, welcoming environment. For us, it’s actually pretty easy. Our customers are not billing statements. Everyone has a name, face and individual needs. We remember who’s who, and by doing that, entire companies turn into people who ultimately turn into friends.

That’s our philosophy. That’s Prairie Title.

We take a personal interest in the success of your real estate transaction.
