32 | TH E M R EP O RT SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION // TITLE & ESCROW GUIDE ATA National Title Group CORPORATE PROFILE ATA National Title Group is a full-service title insurance agency providing comprehensive title and settlement services to companies and individuals involved in real estate transactions. It is licensed to issue title insurance in 29 states and, through partnering relationships, offers title and settlement services in all 50 states. It additionally maintains over 40 offices, staffed by over 400 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. For more information, please visit 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. That diversification, however, never changed ATA's core competency– providing superlative centralized services at a single point of entry to support its lender customer group. To further that mission, in 2015 ATA rolled out its National Lender Services Division (NLS) to leverage the experience and expertise of its one stop default/REO 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.
