I often say that shelter is the cornerstone of our
society. We all know that for most
Americans a home is the single largest and most important investment of their
lives. I have spent 40 years
working to ensure that a homeowner's investment is sound, and I have always
taken great pride in my work. The
searchers at Accurate Abstracts share these values.
I am sure every one of us has, over the past few years,
endured the challenges brought on by economic headwinds and the changes in our
industry. The thing about 'title
people' is we are survivors. Factor
in that we are from Jersey, where only the strong survive, and we are
unstoppable. We adapt and change
and keep taking care of business.
Over the last decade we have been competing with Action
Title Research. We realized that
these guys saw the big picture, and had the instinct and talent to organize and
execute a high volume of work. We
have admired this organization and saw exactly where they were headed. Late
last summer, as we at Accurate Abstracts brainstormed how we might prepare for
the future, my son and partner Sean Flanagan said that by joining forces with
Action Title Research, we would be unstoppable. Such a move would reduce
overhead by pooling resources and other fixed costs, while adding more talent
to the team of searchers we have covering
New Jersey. In August, we
began talks in earnest with Action Title Research.
I'm very pleased to announce that our talks were successful,
and that we have created an alliance with Action Title Research. This will yield many benefits for you,
our valued customers. We have gone
from 30 searchers statewide to 70.
Our staffs complement each other, and we look forward to providing you
with a complete menu of search services (including municipals), along with
title production services, foreclosure reports, and smart reports. Our search
and production teams are working in tandem to provide you with top-notch
abstracts in a timely fashion. By combining our tremendous staffs and
innovative technology, Accurate and Action will be able to deliver the highest
quality work at competitive prices...no matter how busy we all get!
We are very excited about the future. Going forward, we will be known as the
Accurate Abstracts Group...but you can still call us Accurate Abstracts.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your loyal
support. We are proud to be a part of this industry, and look forward to many
more years working together.
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2015.
