Our History

Earning Your Trust and Confidence For More Than 80 Years

Founded in 1922 as Monroe Abstract Corporation, the company was one of the few of its kind to survive the Great Depression. By the mid 30s, Monroe had expanded from Rochester to Buffalo and Syracuse, becoming a full title insurance company in 1939. In the same year, the company's name was changed to Monroe Abstract and Title Corporation.   During the post-World War II housing boom, Monroe opened a number of offices throughout upstate New York, while also becoming a key player in major commercial real estate developments throughout the state.  In 1992, desiring to emphasize its status as the only title insurance underwriter incorporated by and doing business exclusively in New York State, we changed our name to Monroe Title Insurance Corporation, still offering one of the most comprehensive abstract and title service product lines available. In 1993, we opened an office in Auburn, and moved into larger quarters in Ithaca, Canandaigua and Saratoga to better serve our growing customer base. Today, 24 Monroe offices serve individuals, businesses, attorneys, developers, lenders and realtors in 48 counties of the Empire State. Our highly trained staff of professionals is uniquely qualified to respond to any search, examination, escrow, title insurance, closing or other title challenge it encounters. In addition, Monroe's fully-staffed direct-write offices are supported by a statewide network of selected agents, examining counsel and affiliate companies, all sharing Monroe's commitment to service excellence. No matter where your property is located, we can put you directly in touch with an experienced local professional at the hometown office nearest you. Monroe's got New York State covered like no one else.
