It is licensed to issue title insurance in 27 states and offers title and settlement services in all 50 states. It additionally maintains 43 offices, staffed by 423 employees, located throughout the states of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. ATA brands also include: Greco Title Agency; Midstate Title Agency; Seaver Title Agency; and Talon Title Agency. Company History Founded in 1999, ATA was initially created to provide centralized title searches, insurance, and settlement services to lenders and investors engaged in managing defaulted mortgage secured loans. In an effort to diversify its business base, ATA acquired the operations or branches of over 15 companies located in the Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan markets. In 2008 it acquired the bulk of the operations of the former Midstate Title Company and its newly formed Midstate Title Agency subsidiary services customers throughout mid and western Michigan. In 2009 ATA acquired the assets of the former Philip R. Seaver Title Company and in 2010 it acquired the assets of the former Philip F. Greco Title Company, two of the largest and most widely respected title insurance agencies in the Midwest. ATA's Seaver Title and Greco Title units now service customers seamlessly throughout southeastern Michigan. In 2012, ATA acquired the assets of the former Talon Title Agency of Central Ohio, Inc. and in 2013, formed Attorneys Title Agency of Indiana, LLC. Both of these additions enable ATA to service customers in the Ohio and Indiana markets. In 2014 it opened an office in Tinley Park, a suburb of Chicago. To further that mission, ATA has rolled out its National Lender Services Division (NLS) to leverage the experience and expertise of its one stop default service group. Through direct operations or vendor partnerships, NLS can provide a full array of refinance, default, and title curative services throughout the country. This combination of Midwestern based direct operations and national service components comprises the ATA National Title Group. Finally in 2016, it acquired the Michigan direct operations of the Stewart Title Co. (Stewart). As a direct result of this acquisition, ATA has established its National Relocation Services Division, which will offer its customers a full range of employee relocation title and settlement services. regulatory ComplianCe SOC 1 certification, ALTA Best Practices Business lines, serviCes, and produCts Key features/Benefits The accomplished staff at ATA National Title Group has successfully handled thousands of transactions.
