About Wasco Title Co.
Wasco Title Co.
Wasco Title Oregon Ltd., an Oregon limited partnership, was formed in 1950 by Dan P. McLoughlin and George Updegraff. The gentlemen had purchased the two existing Wasco County title insurance (abstract) companies, combined the best of each, and formed Wasco Title Oregon Ltd.
In 1962, D.P. Pat McLoughlin, Jr. joined the company after working in the title insurance business in Portland for a number of years. He attended Northwestern School of Law at Lewis & Clark College, working days at Title & Trust and attending law school at night. After graduation, he moved to The Dalles to join Wasco Title with his father, Dan Sr.
In 1975 the company was incorporated and Wasco Title, Inc. was born.
In 1991, Dan P. McLoughlin, III joined the company working first in title plant maintenance and then in other parts of the business, including real property title searches. Dan has been involved with all aspects of the title insurance and escrow business and is now president of Wasco Title, Inc.
In 1996, Susan L. (McLoughlin) Bergren joined the company as an escrow assistant. After many years of hard work in the escrow department, Susan is now escrow manager.
In 1999, brother-in-law Chris Bloniarz joined the company and has worked hard to become an indispensable part of our title team.
In 2000, Dan and Susan bought the company from their father Pat.
