First American Title and Lone Wolf Technologies integrate to offer title insurance orders directly to 1.4 million real estate agents in the U.S.
With the integration, real estate agents with access to Lone Wolf’s national transaction management member benefit can order First American title insurance policies
Cambridge, ON—December 3, 2020—First American Title Insurance Company, a leading provider of title insurance and settlement services and the largest subsidiary of First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), and Lone Wolf Technologies (“Lone Wolf”), the North American leader in real estate technology, today announced an integration to offer digital title insurance orders within Lone Wolf Transactions (zipForm Edition), the national transaction management member benefit in the U.S., and Lone Wolf Transactions (TransactionDesk Edition), a local/state member benefit in over 300 MLSs and associations in the U.S. This integration represents a significant step toward digitizing the entire title insurance and transaction experience.
With this integration, real estate agents using Lone Wolf Transactions will be able to complete digital title orders with their local First American Title office. The integration includes file order/initiation, secure contract/document transmission, real-time file updates, a chat feature, and a status update dashboard for the real estate agent side. This will result in easier and faster order creation for agents on both sides of the transaction, simpler communication, and a secure channel for both agents and title representatives to share notes and files at the transaction level in their respective systems. The launch will commence in Oregon, and roll out nationally over the next several months.
“It’s more important than ever for real estate professionals to conduct business digitally,” said Jimmy Kelly, president and CEO of Lone Wolf. “This integration connects a leading title insurance provider to the leading transaction solution in the U.S. to bring a one-of-a-kind digital workflow to every single agent in the country, making their deals and their client experience that much simpler at a time when they need it most. We believe this is a huge step toward a new, faster, better real estate transaction experience for agents, brokerages, and buyers and sellers.”
“We’re thrilled to announce this integration with Lone Wolf,” said Jim Dulle, senior vice president and managing director at First American Title. “Integrations like this represent First American Title’s commitment to creating efficiencies for our customers.”
First American Title joins nearly 20 other major real estate services and technology providers in Lone Wolf’s Marketplace, including Earnnest, Updater, Adwerx, EyeSpy360, and many more. Marketplace provides a curated library of digital tools, services, and solutions for every aspect of a transaction, from listing to close and beyond. Access is provided for free to every real estate agent in the U.S. with a login to their national member benefit, Lone Wolf Transactions.
