Since opening its doors this summer, Coral Gables Title + Escrow, LLC (CGT+E) has compiled a growing list of commercial and residential clients throughout Florida. “We are moving swiftly forward to deliver the highest level of personal service to buyers, sellers, lenders and real estate professionals,” said Rodney Barreto, founding partner and chief executive officer. “Our advanced digital platform makes the closing process for each transaction very smooth, whether the parties are located near our Coral Gables office or halfway around the world.”

In-depth title and escrow experience, market knowledge and technology are key differentiators for CGT+E, according to Barreto, who has more than 25 years of experience in real estate investment, development and business consulting. In addition to his varied business interests, Barreto is involved in numerous civic and charitable organizations, and will serve as chairman of the 2020 Super Bowl Host Committee.

Attorney Richard L. Barbara, founding partner and chief operating officer, was formerly a partner at Alvarez Barbara, LLP, where he practiced real estate law and general civil and commercial litigation.

“Our team works closely with mortgage bankers, real estate professionals and their clients to provide highly responsive title, escrow and closing services with the utmost integrity,” said Barbara. “We can handle everything from high-value commercial real estate sales to a small condominium transaction.”

CGT+E also takes a “high-touch, high-tech” approach to helping real estate professionals and lenders stay in continuing contact with buyers and sellers after the closing, Barbara added. “Instead of handing a thick bundle of documents to the buyer at closing, we provide a USB that takes the new owner to a branded website with the documents in the cloud.”

CGT+E has already provided title, escrow and closing services to buyers and sellers from the Florida Keys to the Panhandle, said Bradley L. Barreto, founding partner and chief financial officer. “Our principals bring decades of experience to every transaction,” added Barreto, who was previously co-founder of Capital LED, LLC, which provided energy-saving solutions from high-end residential homes to large-scale commercial projects.

Another of CGT+E’s advantage is its affiliate, Coral Gables Lien Search, an attorney-owned real estate due diligence firm that expedites the title research process, headed by Jose L. Torres, Esq.  “Our goal is to identify any issues at an early stage of the process so they can be resolved well before closing,” Barbara said. “In fact, our goal is to make closing as boring as possible for everyone.”

Coral Gables Title + Escrow LLC is dedicated to delivering concierge-level services to residential and commercial clients throughout Florida, facilitating their real estate transactions. For more information, go to

  1. I’d like to talk with Richard Barbara. I think I was his second grade teacher. I bumped into Christian Oliveira a few years back and said he’d tell Richard I was still at Kenwood.
