Community Spotlight – Ellensburg & Cle Elum
Traveling east from Seattle, and over the Cascade Range, you’ll find the two charming towns of Ellensburg and Cle Elum.
Both in Kittitas County, Ellensburg and Cle Elum welcome the outdoor enthusiast and small-town friend!
Ellensburg is the home of Central Washington University (CWU) and hosts the largest rodeo in Washington State. The Ellensburg Rodeo is part of the professional circuit and lands on Labor Day weekend.
Only a 5-minute drive from Rotary Park, you’ll find our AmeriTitle Ellensburg branch! Our Ellensburg team truly loves their community and helping it grow in any way they can. Assistant Vice President, Rick Osborne, explains, “When the pandemic hit, our employees nominated charities in our community that might need our support. We all decided that the FISH Food Bank would be a good candidate because they help so many people in our community in times of need. We helped them with a financial donation so they could keep allocating the resources most needed to the members of our community who were hurting.”
The Ellensburg Branch has also been recognized by their local community. “Our local Kittitas County Association of Realtors recently put us on the list twice for Affiliate of the Year. We were nominated as a branch, and our newly promoted Escrow Officer, Kathy Osborne, was nominated personally. Kathy won the award for affiliate of the year and many of the group brought by bouquets of flowers in congratulations for the award she received noting her hard work and sunny disposition during these tough times.”
Cle Elum – also known as the Heart of the Cascades – hosts plenty of outdoor activities! Hike, bike, snowmobile, or cross country ski! Fish or swim in the nearby lake, or check out the town’s resort, Suncadia, for wonderful golfing or spa relaxing.
You’ll find our AmeriTitle Cle Elum branch in downtown Cle Elum, only a 20-minute drive from Cle Elum Lake. Our Cle Elum team is a family of wonderful employees who absolutely love their local neighborhood. Escrow Officer, Mindy Cobb, explains, “We get to be a part of a small-town community that supports each other through good times and bad. With this year being especially challenging, getting to work with our local real estate agents and lenders to tackle the larger business volumes that we all experienced was a great illustration of everyone knowing and understanding the unusual circumstances and doing what all parties can do to help each other weather the storm.”
Our Cle Elum office helps with the Cle Elum Downtown Association and the Ellensburg Rodeo.
The Ellensburg and Cle Elum branches are proud to serve the title and escrow needs of Kittitas County. If you’re planning to buy or sell property in Ellensburg or Cle Elum, please ask your real estate professional to close with AmeriTitle.
