Realtors are getting connected to Stewart Title for referrals.

Malcolm S. Morris, president and CEO of Stewart Title Guaranty (NYSE: STC), has announced that thousands of Realtors in franchise and independent real estate offices throughout the United States have registered with Realtor Search since the program's inception in September 1997.

The registered Realtors are listed on www.stewart.com, with links to e-mail addresses and web sites. All registered Realtors are able to receive direct referrals from home buyers and sellers visiting www. stewart.com.

According to Bruce Eder, senior vice president for Stewart Title Guaranty and director of National Real Estate Services, Realtor Search was started to meet the needs of home buyers and sellers who browse the Internet for information on title insurance. "Often, these individuals have made some initial decisions in the home buying or selling process. The next logical step is to connect with a Realtor," Eder said. "Our data base provides just that - a state-by-state listing of Realtors. Any real estate office, broker or sales associate can be listed. There's no charge. It's an excellent way to get connected with an Internet savvy shopper who's in the market for a home."

Registration can be completed online at www.stewart.com or by calling 1-800-927-6646. Stewart Title also registers Realtors in person during large real estate conferences. Getting connected to Realtor Search online is quick and easy, with instant listing in the data base. To register, a Realtor visits www.stewart.com; selects the Real Estate Professional Profile; clicks on Add a Realtor; fills in the information and submits the link to the data base. The link can be verified by entering the Realtor Search city and state directory.

"Realtors must have a working e-mail address and personal or company web site for this valuable program to be viable" said Eder. "The home buyers or sellers on www.stewart.com are Internet ready. Thanks to the Stewart Title Realtor Search, they can just click right through to a Realtor and get started."

According to Susan Wilkins, Director of Marketing for Stewart Title of Corpus Christi, TX, Realtor Search has received overwhelming response with the area Realtors. "We have been listing Realtors steadily since this program was unveiled and have about 80 percent of Realtors with an Internet presence on www.stewart.com," said Wilkins. "It's another opportunity for our Realtors to reach consumers and to set themselves apart from other companies. Here in Corpus Christi, www.stewart.com is hot linked to the Caller Times and so the exposure is even greater for our Realtors."
