Racine-based Knight-Barry Title Group is expanding its downtown Milwaukee office. The firm is adding an additional 2,300 square feet of space at Plaza East, 330 E. Kilbourn Ave. The office, which serves as Knight-Barry’s commercial division, now has a total of 6,216 square feet of space. In addition the company announced that attorney Ellen Wagner was hired recently. She will focus on difficult title and closing transactions. The Knight-Barry Title Group is the only title agency in downtown Milwaukee. The Commercial Division of Knight-Barry Title Group first opened their doors in the downtown market in the summer of 2004 with only four employees. Today the Commercial Division has more than quadrupled in size with 18 experienced title and closing professionals. The downtown office provides a full range of commercial title services including title insurance, closing services, tax-deferred exchanges, construction escrows and national coordination of commercial transactions. "Despite what is happening with residential real estate, 2007 has been a year of growth in all areas of commercial real estate for Knight-Barry. We took a risk opening an office in downtown Milwaukee and it’s paying off as we continue to grow," said Jeff Green, president of Knight-Barry Title Group.
