Friday, January 23rd, 2015

Title Alliance, a RESPA-compliant ESOP company who specializes in joint ventured title insurance agencies, announced today they have reached a major milestone with their latest addition. Title Alliance of South Florida, LLC is the company’s 20th joint venture with Keller Williams Market Centers and their 39th overall joint ventured agency. The company first announced their Florida expansion plans with Title Alliance of Collier County in August.

“Opening an office in Florida with such an incredibly respected operation is really exciting for us,” says Nancy D. Warner, Director at Title Alliance. “Throughout the start-up process, I have worked closely with Natascha Tello (Broker & Operating Partner) and Luz Velez-Cardamone (Principal Partner and Broker Associate), who have been extremely detail oriented. The beliefs and work ethic of all parties involved make me confident that this operation will achieve milestones for many years to come and will be a true partnership.”

The Keller Williams Market Center in Pembroke Pines opened in 2005 and currently has 261 agents who service real estate properties in South Florida. In 2014, the Pembroke Pines Market Center closed 2,488 units for a total closed volume of over $402 Million. In 2014 alone, the company’s profit share, unique to Keller Williams, was $202,571.62. Luz Velez-Cardamone, Principal Partner & Broker Associate for Keller Williams Realty Partners SW, believes that this partnership is going to take the Market Center and agents to the next level.

“Our goal at Keller Williams Realty Partners SW has always been to provide our clients and agents with an in-house attorney and exceptional title team that could deliver world-class customer service,” says Velez-Cardamone. “We are excited to partner with Title Alliance, Ltd, which has a nationally recognized brand; a proven track record and shares the same culture & value beliefs as our company. As we approach our 10 year anniversary, this is a huge milestone!”

Bill O’Connell and Nancy D. Warner, both Directors at Title Alliance, were present for the announcement in Pembroke Pines. “There was plenty of energy in the room as the ‘big announcement’ was made. Agents had seen boxes and taped up windows for the past several weeks as our teams worked to put everything in place in preparation for our Grand Opening,” says O’Connell. “We toasted the partnership, unveiled the company name and logo and had a cake to celebrate. It was quite an impressive beginning to what will prove to be a long partnership.”

Natascha Tello, Broker & Operating Partner shared similar sentiments. "Who you are in business with truly matters," says Tello. "We are absolutely thrilled about this exciting new partnership. Title Alliance's ethics and core business principals align with ours and the synergy between our two companies is great. The future looks really bright."
