Florida Agency Network Merges With International Title Partners

October 7, 2021

Florida Agency Network (FAN) has completed its merger with Clearwater, Fla.-based International Title Partners (ITP).

FAN is comprised of an alliance of members and vendors. This merger brings the total number of FAN offices to over 30, with nearly 300 employees located in Florida. The network is also the developer of multiple proprietary, settlement services technologies.

“We are extremely excited about ITP, which is our newest venture in Pinellas County,” said Mike LaRosa, COO for FAN. “We have partnered with an experienced real estate team that has handled that area’s high-end residential and commercial real estate transactions for years. ITP offers us the opportunity to continue growing our footprint in the Tampa Bay Area real estate market.”

LaRosa noted the strategic location of the merger, which will not only allow FAN to leverage efficiencies in order to maximize customer service levels, but will increase the company’s presence in one of Florida’s leading residential and commercial markets.

Kelly Kepler, previously ITP’s chief executive officer, will stay on with ITP.  She is looking forward to the new relationship and the benefits it will have for clients. 

“FAN’s reputation for exceptional client service and responsiveness is recognized throughout the title industry,” Kepler said.  “I’m looking forward to bringing the FAN resources to our Realtor and lender relationships as well.  The partnership with FAN will allow us to serve and grow in more markets in the state of Florida while providing the amazing customer experience that International Title Partners is known for.” 

Kepler also notes that ITP is well regarded for its strong support of the local chapter of Homes for Heroes, a non-profit network of affiliated real estate, mortgage and business specialists working to deliver easy ways for military, EMS, law enforcement, healthcare professionals and teachers to save money during home purchases.
