"Lynn does an excellent job with clients. I have found her to be hard working, inventive and punctual. She has a deep and detailed knowledge of her industry and is willing to provide the extra time needed to get loans closed in this market. I highly recommend her services."

Bob Hagan - President at Hagan Mortgage Associates, Inc. and Owner, Hagan Mortgage Associates, Inc.

I have known and worked with Lynn Langowski for the past five years. She is knowledgeable about real property law, always thorough, completely professional and self-driven. She and her team are dedicated and will push themselves to timely complete closings. She IS Brandon Family Law Center's go-to for title insurance work, and I recommend her highly without hesitation.

So impressed with the level of service and attention to detail - did you know that you can chose your own title company and don't have to use whomever the realtor chooses? It does make a difference - make your closing easy like I did!

Leslie Maze Forrester

Foundation Title and Trust and Lynn Langowski are always professional, efficient and thorough. They go above and beyond to ensure that every closing is handled on time and that everything is handled perfectly. Further the staff is personable and always accessible to their clients.

I work with title companies on a daily basis in my line of work. Lynn has done closings for me personally and there is no one else that I will use to do loan closings. Of the many title companies I have dealt with she is by far the best.

Richard Vazquez

I've known and worked with Lynn for over 7 years. She has always gone over and above to make sure all parties interests are served to the best of her abilities. I've seen her in stressful situations handle issues professionally and take whatever time necessary to get the job done. Her tenacity and integrity shows through in all her actions. With the addition of her assistant Janelle Baker in the last couple of years and now positioning themselves with The Law Office of Leighton J. Hyde, I believe they have a winning combination that will be able to handle every situation. I look forward working with them for years to come.

I have closed numerous transactions with Foundation Title over the last three years at more than one of their locations. As a Realtor representing a buyer or seller, I am always confident that FTT will communicate clearly, promptly, and reliably to facilitate the transaction. Lynn in particular is an astute, level-headed problem solver that routinely addresses issues before they are obstacles. I highly recommend their Title services for any and all real estate transactions.

Foundation Title and Trust provides a great service for your real estate needs. They have an attorney on staff if needed to answer questions throughout your real estate transaction. They provide great attention to detail and Lynn at the office has personally saved my client's lots of money with her expertise by details she has found while processing closings. Leighton Hyde is known as one of the top real estate attorneys in Tampa bay, FL. He has been a tremendous resource to clients. I would not hesitate to use Foundation Title and Leighton Hyde for their title needs and attorney needs.

I've known Lynn and her staff for at least 12 years. In my former life, I was a mortgage broker and my entire entire deal was dependent on the closing. The title agency can either make or break your deal. And simply put, Lynn delivers with proven results. She's the personification of integrity and trust and comes with years of experience.
