ATA National Title Group Acquires Chicago-based Title Company

May 1, 2018

Farmington Hills, Mich.-based ATA National Title Group LLC (ATA) recently acquired Greater Metropolitan Title to expand its coverage in the Chicago area. Operating under the ATA umbrella, the new company will be branded GMT Title Agency.

Terms of the transaction, which closed April 30, were not disclosed.

“As the largest independent title insurance agency in the Midwest, ATA is continually looking for opportunities to grow and diversify within our key markets,” said William L. Robinson Jr., president, ATA. “This expansion with GMT Title Agency enables ATA to further develop our capabilities within the dynamic Chicago market with a company whose values and vision match ours.”

GMT Title Agency will maintain its four offices—in the Loop, Arlington Heights, Vernon Hills and Oak Brook—as well as its 12 employees, adding to ATA’s established presence. Currently, ATA operates three offices in Illinois (Tinley Park, Joliet and Chicago.)

“This acquisition is a great next step for Greater Metropolitan Title,” said Dave Walker, owner and manager of Greater Metropolitan Title. “As part of the ATA family, we are gaining access to new resources that enhance the service we provide to clients. They’ll still get the care and professionalism they’ve come to expect from us, along with a few new benefits from a leading Midwest firm.”
