Florida Agency Network and SETCO Services Join Forces

August 25, 2016

Florida Agency Network (FAN) and SETCO Services formed a strategic relationship to expand their footprint in key Florida markets.

As opposed to other FAN locations established through organic growth or formalized partnerships, the announcement represents FAN’s first non-equity relationship where the entities will support one another and avail themselves of each other’s locations, client relationships, marketing and other ancillary services.

“We are incredibly excited to announce the formation of this strategic partnership with SETCO Services, which is a first of this kind for us. It represents a new approach to true partnership amongst independent agents in Florida,” said Aaron Davis, CEO of the Florida Agency Network. “We are able to significantly expand our territory through additional brick-and-mortar locations, while keeping that ‘boots on the ground’ local knowledge to better serve our client base. At the same time, both of our companies share the same vision and commitment to industry compliance through the completion of our SOC 1 and SOC 2 certifications.  We plan to focus our combined energies and expertise on serving a broader range of customers and delivering more efficient solutions across the state.”

SETCO Service will utilize the back-office solutions provided by FAN. Centralizing the non-core title services will allow SETCO Services to better focus on providing exceptional service for every real estate professional while maintaining top-notch security and protection of NPPI via FAN’s compliance controls, the companies said in a press release.

“The relationship with Florida Agency Network will allow SETCO to offer more diverse yet streamlined services which will only further improve the customer service to our clientele,” said George Brannon Jr., chief operating officer of SETCO Services. “The leadership and goals of our companies are like-minded and this opportunity will provide all organizations partnered with Florida Agency Network to grow more efficiently and effectively in the markets they choose to lead.”

FAN’s tight security controls consist of SSAE 16 SOC 1 and SOC 2, third-party certification to ALTA Best Practices and support through its information technology affiliate, Premier Data Services (PDS).
