First American Releases Web Portal for Commercial Deals

June 25, 2013

First American Title Insurance Co. released its commercial real estate version of myFirstAm?, a web portal designed to streamline processes through the provision of title order information, property data and other tools and resources involved in completing a commercial real estate transaction.

The primary feature of the portal, which can be accessed online at www.myFirstAm.com, is that it brings together three of First American's premier technologies—EaglePro Classic, EaglePro2 and FASTWeb—into one solution. In addition, a new title and escrow order view provides access to file details, and a polygon map farming tool utilizes satellite mapping technology to help users locate multiple properties.

"The myFirstAm portal for commercial real estate is an exciting new addition to our suite of products," said Sally French Tyler, executive vice president and divisional president of First American Title Insurance Company National Commercial Services division. "By providing real-time order and property information, we aim to provide an increased measure of efficiency and convenience for our customers."

The features of myFirstAm include status updates on title insurance and escrow orders; access to property information—including property characteristics, sales and tax data, and aerial imagery; polygon map farming; and industry resources that help commercial customers make informed decisions. The myFirstAm mobile app also allows myFirstAm users to access First American's comprehensive property database and track order status from anywhere.
