Alpha Title to open east Wichita office

WICHITA — Alpha Title soon will have a new Wichita office.

The Kansas City-based title insurance company has been in the Wichita area for more than five years with offices in west Wichita, Andover and Augusta.

The newest office will open this month at 6611 E. Central, which is just east of Central and Woodlawn.

“I just think it’s really good for growth,” says mortgage loan closer Catherine Heidel.

The new office may replace the one in Andover. The company hasn’t decided yet whether to keep that office open.

“There’s more customer base on the east side of Wichita rather than driving to Andover,” Heidel says.

The Andover office is about 950 square feet. The new office is 1,655 square feet “so there will be room for growth,” Heidel says.

Tony Utter of Utter Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.

Heidel thinks an east Wichita office will give Alpha Title more exposure.

“Hopefully it’ll get our name out there,” she says. “That’s the main purpose.”
