Texas Bank Launches Title Agency

April 6, 2010

A Texas-based bank reported it will open its own title insurance agency in an effort to provide a one-stop shop for its customers. Amarillo National Bank said it will open two Circle A Title offices in May.

"We wanted to do this for our customers and for the Realtors and it's going to make quicker closings and happier customers," William Ware, executive vice president of Amarillo National Bank, told Connect Amarillo.

Amarillo National Bank reported it has a market share of 30-50 percent of the home mortgage loans in Amarillo.

"We have a large mortgage department, and we like working with the Realtors, we felt like this was a great opportunity to bring everybody together in a one stop shop," Ware said.
