Verus Title Expands Into Dallas-Fort Worth Market

June 8, 2021

Verus Title Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Fathom Holdings Inc., recently expanded in the Texas market.

Fathom Holdings acquired Verus Title in November 2020 to complement its suite of services in the residential and commercial real estate market. Since then, Verus has added operations in Texas and Illinois, and expanded its footprint in Indiana, Maryland and Virginia. Texas is Fathom's largest residential real estate market, and Verus intends to initially build its presence across the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

"Opening in Texas has been a priority for us, and I'm excited that we are now licensed to operate there," said Paul Yurashevich, founder and president of Verus Title. "We believe that the demand for an innovative title agency such as Verus, with industry-leading technology and a national footprint, is significant, and our goal is to leverage that demand through additional planned growth. Verus has been steadily rolling out into new markets and plans to operate in all 50 states over the long-term."

As of the end of the 2021 first quarter, Fathom had approximately 2,400 real estate agents in Texas, including approximately 1,700 in Dallas-Fort Worth. 

Chris Mitchell, a 20-year title industry veteran, has been tapped to lead the title operations in the newly created position of managing director for its Texas operations. Prior to joining Verus, Mitchell was senior vice president of Capital Title of Texas LLC.

"Verus has been exceeding all of its goals since its acquisition, and we look forward to its continued growth," said Fathom's Founder and CEO, Josh Harley. "We are also excited to welcome Chris to the team. He brings a wealth of experience and well-earned respect to Verus, as we continue to serve agents and clients across Texas.  He has been a true friend to our Dallas-Fort Worth agents for many years, constantly going above and beyond.  I know he will bring that same energy to Verus and Fathom."
