Stewart Title Expands in Utah

May 25, 2017

Stewart Title’s direct operations in Utah today announced its asset purchase of the business of Title West, a title agency serving the greater Salt Lake and Utah County areas. As a market with enormous growth potential, Stewart reported that the acquisition fits the company’s overall expansion plans in 2017.

Stewart and Title West began their partnership in 1987, when Title West joined the Stewart Trusted Provider network as an independent agent.

“We’re excited to welcome everyone from Title West into the Stewart Title family,” said Dave Fauth, president of Stewart direct operations. “We have a long history of partnership and we appreciate the dedication they have to their clients and to the industry. We share the same core values of integrity and excellence in customer service—ensuring that this acquisition will benefit both our associates and the community.”

This addition will enable Stewart Title’s Utah direct operations to expand in the Utah County market, and will provide Title West’s local customers the world-class real estate transaction experience that Stewart is known for providing.

“Joining with Stewart Title feels like a natural progression of our partnership,” said Mark Day, chief executive officer of Title West. “We are excited to have access to new products and services that will provide our customers with the best possible experience—making the entire closing process faster and more efficient.”
