Ericka Keller, Brisa Builders
“National Standard Abstract has truly set the standard for the high level of title insurance service that a premier company should provide to their clients. NSA makes a commitment to their client to be at the forefront of the title regulations and all matter pertinent to real estate transactions. This is extremely important for churches and religious organizations in which leadership and managed ownership of the property usually changes over time. NSA has developed true expertise regarding properties owned by religious institutions and has been instrumental in closing our faith-based development projects.”
Reverend O’Connor- First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica
“Churches are blessed with the stewardship of property created as a legacy by previous generations.
It’s imperative that pastors and church leaders get a comprehensive understanding of the history of the church owned property early in the development process so that they can identify and address challenges that may be impactful on the project.
National Standard Abstract has the expertise to successfully navigate any challenges that may be identified setting up the church/religious institution for a successful repurposing of its property to fulfill its mission. We highly recommend NSA for your development project.”
Christopher Bramwell, CB Emmanuel

“As a real estate developer in affordable housing each development project we work on is very unique. I have used National Standard Abstract for my real estate development projects because their team is very responsive and well versed in the complexities of title-related issues that arise in affordable housing development transactions. Osei Rubie and his team at National Standard Abstract have done an exceptional job in servicing my real estate transactions.”
Reverend Vivian Grubb - True Holy Church - Brooklyn, NY
“Religious Organizations sometimes choose the long-term ground lease option as the transactional mechanism for their development project, therefore it’s important to choose a title insurance company that is well versed and has successfully closed various types of real estate transactions. To this end, we are thankful that National Standard Abstract was the title insurance company for our project and we highly recommend National Standard Abstract to any religious organization developing their property.”
Bishop Hugh C. Nelson, East Flatbush Church of God - Brooklyn, NY
“Religious Congregations take a leap of faith when they collectively and consciously decide to provide a housing ministry to the community. Because of the unique challenges that faith - based organizations face not only as land owners but when building a new sanctuary or a mixed-use development, it’s tantamount to have experts guide organizations throughout the entire process. National Standard Abstract’s Team has proven themselves to be the experts needed on a large scale and complex faith- based development projects. We highly recommend this firm to provide title insurance for Faith- Based organizations.”
