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.

Anna is one of the most focused and dedicated real estate brokers I have ever worked with. She is honest and will also do what many real estate people will not do which is to give the actual story of a property and not just the story that the buyer or seller wants to hear. That is a rare quality and I would highly recommend Anna and her firm to any buyer or seller who is looking to work with the best!

My experience with Foley Griffin is that it's a personal injury firm with integrity and honesty with a laser focus on what's best for the client. These are not often words associated with a firm practicing in this segment of the law. In addition the firm possesses the great skills necessary to help clients win the best outcome possible for their case. I would highly recommend Foley Griffin for anyone who has experienced an injury due to negligence.

Greg Levy is an excellent real estate attorney whose focus is solely on his clients best interests. In addition the only type of law that he practices is real estate so that he knows ALL of the nuances and potential pitfalls that could arise in a deal and addresses them. I would recommend his law office highly! Mike
