First American Expands Secure Portal to Texas Real Estate Professionals

December 22, 2020

First American Title Insurance Co. announced that Texas real estate professionals can now access the company’s mobile and secure solution for sharing transactional information with the participants in a real estate transaction.

First American launched Secure Portal in 2018 as a secure online environment for buyers and sellers to complete paperwork, communicate with their closing team and retrieve wire instructions. The platform has expanded to include specific real estate professionals, enhancing security and further reducing the need for email communication that can be targeted by fraudsters.

By signing up for the Secure Portal, Texas real estate professionals and their transaction coordinators can view and track the status of all their First American Title transactions, access documents and safely communicate with their buyers or sellers and their escrow team all in one place.

“The widespread threat of real estate-related fraud isn’t going away, so having orders, messages and documents in a protected environment is more important than ever,” said Justin Taylor, Texas state manager with First American Title’s Direct Division. “With this latest enhancement, First American Title is once again leading the industry by providing a central, secure and collaborative environment where buyers, sellers, real estate professionals, and escrow can all share transactional information in a way that is easier and safer for everyone involved.”

After completing a pilot this summer, First American Title is expanding Secure Portal availability to real estate professionals across the country.
