First American expands title and escrow services capabilities

Title insurance, settlement services, and risk assessment firm First American has expanded its business through the full acquisition of an Arizona-based firm.

First American has been a minority owner of Title Security Agency for 5 years but now owns the Arizona-based firm which has 17 offices across the state.

“Title Security Agency, LLC is a welcome addition to the First American family. Both companies emphasize a commitment to delivering superior service and innovation,” said Chris Leavell, chief operating officer at First American Title. “The addition of Title Security Agency, LLC expands our abilities to serve customers in Arizona and enhances our expertise in the Arizona market.”

Title Security Agency will benefit from the additional underwriting capabilities and other resources that being part of the larger business will provide.

Title Security Agency, LLC President Vivian Boggie, Chief Operating Officer Bruce Jacobs and Senior Vice President Mary Ann Christensen will remain with the company and manage the day-to-day operations.

“I’m excited about the new opportunities for Title Security Agency staff to serve our customers as the Arizona real estate market continues to grow,” said Thomas Sullivan, founder of Title Security Agency, LLC. “Title Security Agency employees will also appreciate the opportunity to be part of a company named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list for the last four consecutive years.”
