Real Estate and Title Services

Title and Closing Services

O'Donnell Lee provides residential and commercial real estate services. We assist clients with approximately 350-400 title files per year, working closely with many local banks.  Services include:
  • Title searches
  • Title insurance
  • Closings
  • Document Preparation: Deeds, Mortgages, Notes, Powers of Attorney, and more.
All of our closings are conducted by attorneys, usually Tom McCowan or Mike Phillips.  Commercial closings are performed by Mike Phillips or Tim O'Donnell.  Most are closed off-site, typically at banks, occasionally at real estate offices.  We regularly travel from Waterville to Skowhegan, Augusta, Madison, Bingham, Belgrade, and Pittsfield at no extra charge for closings.  We are focused on providing friendly, congenial closing experiences for the participants.
