Stewart Acquires Ohio-based Elite Family of Companies

January 12, 2023

Stewart Title announced the acquisition of Elite Family of Companies, which is comprised of Elite Land Title, LLC Aspen Land Title Agency LLC and Citizens Land Title Agency LLC.

The Elite Family of Companies have served customers across Ohio for more than two decades with locations in Columbus, Circleville and Dayton.

“The Elite Family of Companies have grown into one of the highest quality service providers in the region,” said Stewart Group President Steve Lessack. “As we’ve spent time with Shannon [Corwin] and her team, we see they share many of the same values and will be a seamless addition to our already strong team in the Columbus market. With the addition of the Elite Family of Companies team, Stewart further highlights our commitment to investing in attractive markets, both in Ohio, where we are a leader in the top three markets, and across the country.”

Stewart has made other acquisitions in Ohio over the past two years. In July 2021, Stewart purchased Westerville, Ohio-based Title First and acquired Cleveland-based NorthStar Title Services in January.

“This is an exciting day for the Elite Family of Companies, our employees and customers,” said Shannon Corwin, president of Elite Land Title. “Stewart Title is the gold standard in the industry and by joining the Stewart family, we will be better able to provide our customers with the highest quality products and services. The combination of our cultural alignment, along with Stewart’s financial strength, the digital tools and new technologies Stewart offers will allow us to continue to grow, as we have over the past two decades. The combination of our team with the broader Stewart team across the region presents tremendous opportunities for all of us in Central Ohio. We’re looking forward to a bright future together as part of the Stewart family.”
