About Us

Federal Title’s humble beginnings trace back to a single, closet-sized sublet office, with a makeshift desk fashioned from a piece of plywood strewn across a couple sawhorses by founder Todd Ewing.

That was back in the fledgling days of the Internet when paper closings and manual rate calculations were considered high technology. Ewing digitized all of it, and Federal Title became the nation’s first title company to offer online ordering and transparent, instant online quotes. Next came innovations such as REAL Credit, paperless closings and the popular cash-to-close app Close It!

Over the years, Ewing’s outfit has grown in size to more than 20 employees and now offers five convenient closing locations across DC, MD + VA – plus remote online closing capabilities. To this day, Federal Title continues to pioneer new ways to harness technology to anticipate the needs of clients, and their clients, and deliver a pleasant and painless closing experience for all.

Federal Title remains independent and 100-percent in the corner of every buyer and seller we serve, dedicated to building successful partnerships with every real estate professional we encounter.

Giving Initiatives

We believe we’re here to help each other, to take care of each other. That’s at the heart of everything we do; it’s baked into our culture.

We proudly support several local non-profits and charities that are taking care of our friends and neighbors in the Greater Capital Region, through giving initiatives such as our holiday giving campaign and by sharing their stories on our blog and social media pages. Causes include children’s education, health care, social justice, animal welfare and more.

Contact us if you are a real estate professional involved with a local charity. We’d like to learn more.
