Find out if you live in a sinkhole zone! This Rockville Centre woman actually does!

On February 5th Hallmark Abstract Service wrote an article that asked whether homeowners or businesses knew if they were in any sinkhole danger!

Ironically the first paragraph of the article which said, ‘While the odds of anyone in New York City or Long Island living in an area that’s prone to sinkholes is minor, what about around the rest of the country?‘ was quickly proven to be inaccurate.

In that article we had provided a link to a website that can tell if there had been any sinkholes reported in your vicinity before.

Now, over the weekend and only a couple of weeks later, a woman sitting in a car located on her driveway in Rockville Centre, Long Island was swallowed by a hole estimated to be 10-15 feet deep.

And while it is likely that Gayle Sorrentino’s address would have come up negative had she looked on Saturday, it is probably worth it for homeowners and businesses to check anyway.

In 2008 we opened our doors focused on two primary goals:

Number one was to be a title insurance company that would provide clients with a superior finished product that completely protects their interests for what will likely be one of the largest transactions of their lifetime.

Number two was to insure that the experience of working with Hallmark Abstract Service was as easy and seamless as possible for all parties involved in the transaction!

From the number of satisfied clients who come back to Hallmark Abstract Service time after time for their title insurance needs, the evidence bears out that we have accomplished these two goals in the past and will maintain our client centric focus far into the future!

Post 1984 MBA in Finance from the State University of New York at Albany that concentrated on the tax-exempt market, Michael became a municipal bond analyst at Shearson/Lehman Brothers tasked with following 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 and understanding of the real estate and mortgage markets.

As CEO of Exeter Commercial which underwrote and funded commercial mortgage loans as a correspondent lender, title insurance played a critical role in both the underwriting and closing process.

In 2008 recognizing both an opportunity and need, Hallmark Abstract Service was born.
