Citywide Title was formed by Jim DeBoer and Kevin Klank on June 23rd, 1997. Jim DeBoer, President, has lived in Chicago for the last 30 years and still currently resides on the north side of Chicago. Jim has been in the Title industry for over 42 years where he began as a summer employee for Intercounty Title at the ripe age of 18. Kevin Klank, C.E.O., was born in Chicago and currently resides in Glen Ellyn. Kevin began at Intercounty Title and Credit at the age of 25 and has been in marketing and title for 25 years. Jim and Kevin are proud to be one of the few home grown title companies started in Chicago. As a matter of fact, their first office was located out of Jim’s garden apartment!
Today, Citywide employs over 90 people and has 15 closing locations. Illinois continues to be their main focus and strength. Also, Citywide is proud to note that all work has always been performed in the USA and has never been contracted out of the country for a cheaper cost to Citywide. Jim and Kevin have worked to maintain their original mission statement created years ago: “To provide the highest quality of service in every interaction delivered with a sense of warmth, friendliness, individual pride and company spirit.” Citywide continues to be one of the fastest growing companies in Chicagoland. To all customers that choose to do business with us, we say “Welcome to the family!” and “Thank You for the business”.
