Chatham Title was created in 2004 by Sherry (Reynolds) Crittenden to provide a more hands on approach to real estate settlements, and to incorporate available technology into the process. At the same time, maintaining an open communication with all parties. Ms. Crittenden’s philosophy recognizes how important each real estate transaction is to the people it affects.


She is available on a 24/7 basis to her customers, and the real estate agents and loan officers representing them.


Chatham Title is rooted within one of North Arlington’s oldest real estate families. Walter “Cap” Reynolds (born in Chatham Virginia) started building and selling homes in Northern Virginia in the late 1940’s. Ms. Crittenden and her daughters are proud to carry on her father’s legacy.
