“The most important thing to remember is: to protect your quarterback – ME!”-Paul Crewe (The Longest Yard) Businesses grow and prosper because of the effort of the team. We often see title agencies succeed in part due to heroic efforts of key employees (let’s call them ‘quarterbacks’). A buyer of your agency wants to be […]
For title agency owners, 2021’s most asked question is ‘how long will this last’? Some are concerned about staffing while others worry about missing their window of opportunity when the current seller’s market (for title agencies) becomes a buyer’s market. They want to make as much money as they can right now yet reap the […]

There is a mistaken perception that Private Equity will be using this capital to bail out companies that need life lines to help […]
Panic, pandemic, pandemonium, doom and gloom…how is it that the FACTS we see in the title industry portray positivity when the media screams otherwise? I’m befuddled these days when reading the news about the real estate market (and title). Is there a hidden political agenda lurking between the words? Are the news outlets grandstanding hoping to […]
It’s so interesting how different companies react or respond (there is a difference) to COVID-19. This is a challenging time for title companies. Actions matter more than intentions or words. Does your firm embrace abundance or scarcity? Does your disaster plan include adequate cash reserves to save jobs? What’s adequate? Are you prepared enough? What’s […]
