Attorneys Title Agency acquires Bayview Title

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 Petoskey-based Bayview Title Agency. The transaction closed on May 31. ATA President Bill Robinson made the announcement.

"We saw Bayview as a great opportunity to further strengthen our presence in northern Michigan, complementing our Harbor Springs office," stated Robinson. "We're taking the next step in expanding our footprint with the acquisition of this well established and respected operation."

Bayview Title will operate as an ATA office. Tim Murphy, former Bayview Title owner, will serve as the north Michigan area manager for ATA, overseeing the organization's day-to-day operations in the region.

"For more than 30 years, we've worked to establish Bayview as a leader in the northern Michigan market, and this acquisition will further help us in accomplishing our goal," said Murphy. "Under the ATA name, we will be armed with a strong financial backing, operational advancements, innovative and impactful technology, and a proven approach to sales and marketing that Attorneys Title is renowned for throughout the state of Michigan."
