Lakewood Company Title Reviews

A huge THANK YOU to all those that took the time to review our title company. We really do strive to make our clients happy!


J.J. Chapa says: As a Realtor of a large team; we depend on high quality professionals to help our business run smoothly and our client’s to be well cared for. There is no other title company I would ever trust with this more than Lakewood Title. They are responsive, professional and provide the best client experience with the dedication to make convenience a tenant for our clients by working with them on closing times and locations. I’ve had them close a client in their home after business hours. There are no better folks to work with.


Kelley MacKay says: Tracy is very communicative easy to get a hold of and works hard to make things go smoothly. They go out of their way to make closings easy on the buyer seller and the agents.


Lisa Trees says: I have had the pleasure of working with Lakewood Title as a Realtor, and as a buyer. Without a doubt, their customer service exceeds all expectations. This amazing group of people truly care about their clients and their quality of work is out of this world.


Tracy and Mark are miracle workers!  Just had the worst lender of all time on a deal but thanks to Tracy Koonce and her constant diligence and Mark Carlson’s cool head in and quick thinking in a dire situation, they moved heaven and earth to get my client closed today!! He was able to make his flight this afternoon to leave on a long planned trip.  THANK YOU Lakewood Title!  You always do an amazing job for us.


Lakewood Title has been incredible to work with. We switched from a prior title company because we were not receiving the type of service that we required. We considered several title companies, but decided to give Lakewood Title a try. We close several deals every month and Lakewood Title has not only met, but has exceeded our expectations. Our latest closing required creative thinking to eliminate numerous problems and issues. Richard supplied the creative solutions, and Mary got it closed on time. Anyone with title needs should use this company.

Special Dates in May and June Coming Soon!

May 31 2020 Pentecost Sunday, 5 & June 1 2020 Pentecost Monday, 6: Pentecost, also known as White Sunday, is a religious holiday that celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit on the early followers of Jesus Christ and also recognizes the day that the church was established.

June 14 2020 Flag Day Sunday, 19: Flag Day 2020, is a holiday observed annually on June 14. It is a day that commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States that took place in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date.

June 21 2020 Father’s Day Sunday, 26: Father’s Day is a holiday celebrated annually on the third Sunday of June. It is a day that commemorates fatherhood and appreciates all fathers and father-figures (including grandfathers, great-grandfathers, stepfathers, and foster fathers) as well as their contribution to society.

History of Father’s Day

The History of Father’s Day 2020 dates back to 1910 in Spokane, Washington, where 27-year-old Sonora Dodd proposed it as a way to honour the man (a civil war veteran William Jackson Smart) who raised her and her five siblings alone after her mom died in childbirth. Dodd was at a church thinking about how grateful she was for her father when she had the idea for Father’s Day, which would mirror Mother’s Day but be celebrated in June, her dad’s birthday month.

It is said that she was inspired after hearing a sermon about Jarvis’ Mother’s Day in 1909 at Central Methodist Episcopal Church, and she therefore told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. A bill to nationally recognize the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father’s Day celebration and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, with the fear that it would just another commercialized holiday. The movement grew for years but only became popular national in 1924 under former President Calvin Coolidge.

The holiday gained population during World War II, with most men leaving their families to fight in the war. In 1966 President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed the third Sunday of June to be Father’s Day. US President Calvin Coolidge recommended in 1924 that the day be celebrated by the nation, but stopped short of issuing a national proclamation.

Two attempts to formally recognize the holiday had earlier been rejection by Congress. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

Traditions of Father’s Day 2020

Traditionally, families gather to celebrate the father figures in their lives. Father’s Day is a relatively modern holiday so different families have a range of traditions.

Many people send or give cards or traditionally masculine gifts such as sports items or clothing, electronic gadgets, outdoor cooking supplies and tools for household maintenance. In the days and weeks leading to Father’s Day, many schools help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or small gift for their fathers. Additionally, the US Open golf tournament is scheduled to finish on Father’s Day. ~ https://www.calendar-365.com/holidays/father%27s-day.html

We’ve been doing a little research and some much needed reading during this tragic pandemic that’s “no April Fools’ Joke”!

We’ve been doing a little research and some much needed reading during this tragic pandemic that’s “no April Fools’ Joke”! It is hard to believe that this is our reality at this time.

Here are a few blogs, info, ideas and websites that could come in handy in the next few weeks and perhaps month (Let’s all hope not!).

1. Complete a puzzle: The more pieces the better! Feeling extra saucy? Take on a Rubik’s Cube. More of a word person? Crossword puzzle!

2. Start a journal or blog. Sure, it can be about the coronavirus, but it could also be about a specific interest from chess to cheese.

3. If it won’t bother your neighbors: Dust off that old instrument and practice.

4. Text all your exes just in case you have one more thing you wanted to get off your chest.

5. Write poetry. Perhaps you can craft a haiku for Mother’s Day, or something without a specific structure. Just try it!

6. Watch all the really long movies you’ve avoided until now.

7. Download Duolingo, or a similar app, and teach yourself a foreign language.

8. Finally read “Infinite Jest,” “Les Miserables” or even “The Stand.” Go all in and read “Ulysses.” You got this.

9. Meditate. Try lying down with your eyes closed, palms up and while focusing on your breath. Or spend 20 minutes sitting crosslegged and repeat a soothing word to yourself in your head. (The latter is more like transcendental meditation.)

10. Face masks, moisturizer, oh my! Treat yourself to a 10-step skin care routine you don’t have time for during a normal work week.

  • Are your kids at home and incredibly bored right about now? Then take a look at this list of “TO DO IDEAS” put together by Monica Housewright (www.housewrightfence.com – co partner and owner of House of Mo’s Boutique) after she surveyed moms and mom groups all over the DFW areas. https://www.housewrightfence.com/100-ideas
