Redfin launches mortgage, title review site

Seattle brokerage says it may offer title insurance, get back into lending

Seattle-based brokerage Redfin is launching consumer reviews of mortgage lenders and title insurance companies — businesses that the company says it’s considering getting into itself.

Redfin’s local review site, Open Book, will also feature client reviews of inspectors, home stagers, landscapers and handymen in markets where the brokerage operates.
