For San Benito Land Title Corporation, being honored as the Hollister Chamber of Commerce’s business of the month isn’t just another plaque on the wall.

It’s something that represents an appreciation from the community to which they donate so much of their time.

“They’ve always been such a giving company in terms of community benefit,” said Jack Markle, a Coldwell Banker Realtor and Chamber ambassador who nominated the company as January’s business of the month.

Wayne Hone, who owned the company since its inception in 1989, recently turned it over to First American Corporation in November of 2002 because, as the company’s underwriter, they wanted to expand into this area, Hone said.

The ownership change has been fine, and the company is still under the same management and contributing the same amount of help to local groups and organizations, he said.

“We support the Rodeo, Marle Holte’s Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, the church, hospice,” Hone said, “you name it, we support it.”

This is not the first time the Chamber has honored the long-time Hollister business. They’ve been awarded with numerous accolades, including business of the year and business of the decade, Hone said.

“They seem to be doing it again and it’s really nice. We appreciate it,” he said.

Markle’s nomination stemmed from the constant creed of contribution the company exhibits, he said.

“It isn’t something this year, it’s an ongoing effort on their part,” Markle said. “They’ve been business of the month before, but they just keep going and going in the same direction.”

Anytime there is a need for volunteers at any community function an employee of the company is there to help out, he said.

If another local business wishes to emulate San Benito Land Title’s success, they simply have to contribute more to the community, he said.

An easy way to do this is to identify your passion and get involved with something that coincides with it, said the Chamber’s Executive Director Theresa Kiernan.

“Basically what you’re doing is supporting each other’s families,” she said. “Even if you don’t have somebody on staff, but you know that there’s somebody in another business with either the adults or children involved in some kind of activity… you’re supporting the community.”

The Chamber will be officially honoring San Benito Land Title on Wednesday, Jan. 14, at 10 a.m., where they will be presenting them with a framed certificate, Kiernan said.

“To all who are present we will go through the various things that they are involved in and why they have been selected,” she said. “And then we celebrate with them.”

Markle will also be making a presentation at the ceremony, expounding on his nomination.

“You pick any community activity and probably without fail there is a representative of San Benito Land Title,” Markle said. “They’re always, always there.”
