Get your documents recorded in any county in the State of Washington as well as any county in the United States!
In time sensitive situations our nationwide network of recording agents hand deliver your document directly to the clerk to ensure your documents are recorded without delay. You go straight to the front of the line, past piles of documents mailed to the clerk's office, which can take weeks to get recorded. Once your document is recorded, we provide a copy of the recorded document or a county receipt with recording information – whichever fits your needs.
Occasionally, some counties become badly backlogged. This could delay the recording of your document even when we hand deliver it. If this happens, we monitor your document closely and keep you informed of the progress until we confirm it has been recorded.
Fast Electronic Document Recording
We can now electronically record your real estate documents in many counties around the US! Send us your documents and we'll record them electronically – saving you time & shipping costs.
When the recording is complete, you receive a confirmation of recording and a copy of the recorded document. This is much faster and more cost efficient than standard recording and we recommend it whenever possible! Find out more about electronic document recording.

Washington - Economics
Washington’s water resources provide both irrigation and enormous hydroelectric power. The impact of the Columbia River on the life and economy of the state can scarcely be overestimated. In early days the river was a means of transport and a salmon-fishing field for many Native American tribes. Because of the steep drop from its origin to its mouth, the Columbia is one of the greatest sources of hydroelectric power in the world. Grand Coulee Dam—one of the world’s largest concrete dams and greatest potential power-producing structures—and Bonneville Dam have been supplemented, on the river’s upper course, by Chief Joseph and Rocky Reach dams (both completed 1961), Priest Rapids Dam (1962), and Wanapum Dam (1963), and, on its lower course, by The Dalles Dam (1957), John Day Dam (1968), and McNary Dam (1953), all shared with Oregon.
Puget Sound is the heart of Washington’s industrial and commercial development. It is navigable and has many beautiful bays, on which are situated such commercial and industrial cities as Seattle, Tacoma, and Everett. Seattle, an exporter and importer in trade with Asia and a gateway to Alaska (because of the protected Inland Passage), is a major U.S. city and a center for the manufacture of jet aircraft (as well as missiles and spacecraft) by the Boeing Corp. In recent years, computer software (Microsoft Corp. is near Seattle), electronics, and biotechnology have become increasingly important to the economy.
Washington’s huge food processing industry is based on the state’s diversified irrigated farming and dairying as well as on its abundant fishing resources. Salmon is the biggest catch, but halibut, bottomfish, oysters, and crabs are also significant.
