American Secure Title Acquires Landmark Title

July 10, 2018

Utah-based American Secure Title announced its acquisition of Landmark Title Company, a Salt Lake City-based title agency.

The acquisition joins together two family owned agencies in the Utah market. Landmark Title will continue to operate under the same name, although the two agencies have begun to merge their operations, according to Chase Phillips, general manager for American Secure.

“The growth in Utah’s real estate industry right now is wonderful for the entire state, and it’s exciting to be involved in that every day,” Phillips said. “We believe title agencies play a very important role in Utah's growth and in helping homeowners and developers feel secure when they invest in real estate here. We’re so excited for our American Secure family to grow right along with the rest of the state. We believe it takes having the best people on staff to offer the best service to our clients. The staff at Landmark are known throughout our industry as being some of the very best in the state. We're so happy to welcome them to the American Secure family.”

Landmark Title has provided residential and commercial title and escrow services since 1988.

Jeff Jensen, former president of Landmark Title, said "As I considered my retirement, we were particularly concerned about bringing in someone who was going to be able to continue what we've built at Landmark, and I feel confident we've found that with American Secure. I think it's going to be great for our clients. They'll still be able to work with the same staff and close at the same locations they're accustomed to. But, now the staff will also be able to handle title work and closings throughout Utah with the same level of care our clients are used to at Landmark."
