A restaurant that's too small for its following creates pent-up demand and can thrive as it lays plans to expand. A restaurant that's too big merely fails. There are occasional counterexamples of ventures that fail because they were too small...

Israel, the worlds worst actor in the area of the human rights of women? Perhaps the United Nations needs to be sent some of the pictures in this article taken from around the Arab world that clearly show what the sadistic and murderous mistreatment of women and a violation of human rights actually looks like!

Michael Haltman, Owner, Hallmark Abstract Service
Introduction

Hallmark Abstract Service provides title insurance for residential and commercial real estate transactions in New York State and nationwide, underwriting through Chicago Title!

Michael Haltman started Hallmark Abstract Service in 2008 with two primary goals!

Number one was to create a title insurance company that would provide our clients with a superior finished product while affording them a seamless and stress-free process.

Number two was to make the experience of working with Hallmark Abstract Service as easy and as pleasurable as obtaining title insurance for a real estate transaction could possibly be!

From the sheer number of satisfied clients who keep coming back to Hallmark Abstract Service for their title insurance needs, I believe that we have accomplished our goals in the past, and we will continue striving to improve on them in the future!

My Background

In 1980 I earned an undergraduate degree in economics followed in 1984 by an MBA in finance with a concentration in tax-exempt finance. With this focus on the municipal market I became a municipal bond analyst at Shearson/Lehman Brothers tasked with following both general obligation issuers on the city and state level as well as housing bonds secured by mortgage pools.

This experience at Shearson/Lehman Brothers followed by stints at PaineWebber and Citigroup provided a broad framework of understanding concerning the mechanics of mortgage debt in terms of prepayment experience, mortgage quality and the expected duration of a portfolio.

Leaving Wall Street I formed Exeter Commercial which worked in tandem with various financial institutions that would package loan bundles and resell them to REMICS (real estate mortgage investment conduits). Title insurance was a critical part of the underwriting and closing process.

At the peak of the financial crisis, I recognized both an opportunity and need as many title firms, for a variety of reasons, closed their doors. Out of this, Hallmark Abstract Service was born.
