Olympic Peninsula Title began in 1982 when Chris and Sue Zook bought the Clallam County operation from Transamerica Title Insurance Company. They focused their efforts on providing outstanding service to the customers, promoting education and professional growth within the staff and giving back to the communities where we work and live. OPT has grown and prospered in large part due to the solid values embraced by the Zook family and all our employees.
- Do the right thing, even if it isn’t the easy thing
- Family first, always
- Lead by example
- Deliver what you promise
- Have fun and smile every day
OPT continues to be a family run operation to this day. Chris and Sue’s daughter, Maureen Pfaff, joined the company as CFO in 2005 and took over day to day management of operations in 2006. In 2012, Maureen expanded the business to include a contract loan servicing department. Maureen’s husband Jason joined the company in 2013 bringing with him 20 years of experience in land development in Clallam County. In 2017, Maureen became President and CEO of the company.
Maureen is an active member of the Washington Land Title Association, serving on the board since 2014 and as President in 2016-2017. She is also an active member of the American Land Title Association, serving as a Board Governor from 2017-2021.
