Attorneys Title Agency acquires two offices in west Michigan

Farmington Hills-based Attorneys Title Agency (ATA), a full-service title company providing comprehensive services throughout the state of Michigan, announced Tuesday that it has acquired the assets of First American Title offices in Portage and Battle Creek, Mich. ATA Chairman and CEO David A. Trott made the announcement.

The transaction, which closed on Dec. 19, marks the second ATA acquisition this month. Having acquired Pinnacle Title Agency in Portage, Mich. on Dec. 7, ATA now has three offices in the Kalamazoo and Battle Creek markets.

"Having closed on the acquisition of our first Kalamazoo location just two weeks ago, these offices will be a great addition to our West Michigan presence as we continue to expand our footprint," said Bill Robinson, president of ATA.

"The Kalamazoo market is a prime area--both in terms of geography and the number of real estate transactions executed--and we're thrilled to enhance our market share with well-established offices."

The offices were owned by California-based First American Title Insurance Company. The First American locations will operate as ATA offices, supervised by the agency's Southwest Michigan manager, Terry Pingel.
