But the reality is that we also need to thank veterans and those currently serving, every day, for ensuring that the rest of us can continue to enjoy our American way of life! #MemorialDay   #veterans   #ultimatesacrifice   #military

Memorial Day 2016 Is Not About Your BBQ!
The reason that Americans have the right and the ability to the freedoms that we enjoy comes down to one thing! The fact that the military, over the years that America has existed, has protected those rights with a huge number making the ultimate sacrifice!...
Why do Americans celebrate Memorial Day? The reason has nothing to do with barbecues,going to the beach or an extra day off from work!

Disney CEO Bob Iger isn't letting Bernie Sanders' comments on the company's wages slide. "To Bernie Sanders: We created 11,000 new jobs at Disneyland in the past decade, and our company has created 18,000 in the U.S. in the last five years," Iger wrote in a private Facebook post, The Wrap reports. "How many jobs have you created? What have you contributed to the U.S. economy?" On Tuesday, during a rally just down the street from Disneyland, Sande...

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.
