September 11, 2012
Title365 Company, a provider of title insurance and escrow services, expanded into Texas with the opening of its main Texas office in Dallas/Fort Worth. The new Title365 Texas operations will be managed by title industry veteran Gregory L. Roddy, who will serve as Texas state manager.
The company said it expects to open additional escrow branches throughout the Dallas metropolitan area as well as additional operations in San Antonio, Austin and Houston.
Roddy has been instrumental in securing the company’s initial state licensing, establishing relationships with Texas underwriters, and recruiting management, sales, and escrow personnel in key metropolitan areas throughout the region. He has practiced law for 20 years and cemented his extensive title operations experience with Fidelity in 1997 where he held numerous executive-level positions for more than a decade. Intimately familiar with real estate issues, Roddy has lectured extensively on I.R.C. Section 1031 real and personal property exchanges with IPX, managed fee attorneys, and owned and operated his own fee office during the course of his 20-year legal career.
A licensed Texas escrow officer, Roddy was chief operating officer and director of title and settlement services for Premium Title Services Inc., a division of Altisource in Atlanta. He is a member of the Texas Land Title Association, Dallas Bar Association and the Collin County Association of Realtors. He continues to develop and teach accredited continuing education seminars to Realtors, brokers & attorneys.
“Title365 is excited to cement our leadership in one of the nation’s most promising real estate markets by bringing our valuable service offerings to Texas,” said Michael Tafoya, CEO of Title365. “Greg has amassed a stellar team dedicated to delivering differentiated settlement services backed by the industry’s most advanced technology. We look forward to providing our Texas customers with the faster turnaround, customer-centric service, and depth of knowledge that customers nationwide have already come to expect from Title365.”
In addition to Roddy, Charlie Scott, a 36-year veteran of the title insurance industry, will serve in the Dallas/Fort Worth area as vice president and area manager. Previously, he was the Dallas/Fort Worth area manager for Chicago Title Insurance Co. Scott created and oversaw a single point of contact for lender orders for all 254 counties in Texas as president of Lenders Advantage of Texas.
