CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ, October 1, 2017—Investment Title Holdings, a company focused on identifying efficiencies and improving processes throughout the title transition lifecycle, announced today it acquired fellow title agency Title Consulting Services (TCS). Financial details and terms were not disclosed.
Based out of Warren, New Jersey, TCS has three New Jersey offices and one in Florida. Their highly trained and experienced group of title agents provide services to other title agencies—everything the agencies to focus on their sales efforts. The acquisition not only allows Investment Title to increase their geographic presence, but also to bolster their back-end operations.
“Investment Title started working with TCS in early 2017, and we quickly realized the synergies between our organizations,” stated Investment Title CEO Bill Bartzak. “With TCS as the highly efficient operating engine, Investment Title is free to focus on the sales end of the business, priming us for expansion into additional states. This is the first step towards achieving our vision of streamlining the title process to create the best possible customer experience.”
“For the past 17 years, Title Consulting Services has leveraged its extensive industry experience to help its customers streamline processes and increase profitability,” said TCS CEO Brian Teel. “In joining forces with Investment Title, we’re able to significantly scale both our sales and operations and bring our efficiencies to an even larger customer base.”
With the acquisition, Teel will join Investment Title as its Chief Operating Officer (COO). Along with TCS, Investment Title will also acquire its three subsidiaries: Title Report Services, Title Policy Services, and Title Settlement Services. These, along with TCS, are now subsidiaries of Investment Title Holdings.
