Near North National Title Acquires Indiana-based Agency

July 19, 2012

Near North National Title LLC announced that it has purchased Hamilton Title Security LLC, a longstanding Indiana title agent. Hamilton Title provides a full range of title and escrow services to firms and individuals involved in complex, single and multi-state commercial, industrial and residential real estate transactions.

Near North is a market leader in the Chicago market, and plans to heavily invest in Hamilton’s technology to give Hamilton’s clients access to industry leading on line ordering and order processing, data protection and electronic delivery of services required for settlement.

“We are excited to be able to have such a capable group of professionals join our team,” said Dan Fowler of Near North. “We plan to immediately add jobs to our Carmel, Indiana office and invest for the long term. Hamilton’s law firm, bank, realtor, builder and mortgage broker customers will quickly see and feel our dedication to customer service and benefit from access to our team of experts.”

Hamilton’s business located in Carmel will continue under the day-to-day management of a seasoned team of highly capable and long-time employees. President Bill Olsen, along with his now deceased brother, Bob Olsen, formed Hamilton 30 years ago. The Olsens, along with brother David Olsen, built Hamilton into a leading provider of title and escrow services in Carmel and the greater Indianapolis metropolitan markets.

“Hamilton is very excited that our customers and employees will benefit from Hamilton being a part of the Near North Title group of companies,” said Bill Olsen.
