Action Title Research Acquires Eastland Title Services

April 21, 2022

Technology-based search solution Action Title Research recently acquired Eastland Title Services, which provides title services throughout New England.

The deal expands Action Title Research’s proprietary workflow software to customers in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.

Action Title Research’s SmartSearch platform utilizes software and data gathering interfaces and services to address varying search requirements, public records access and local infrastructure.

“We are excited to bring the Action platform and technology to one of the most fragmented markets in the country,” said Chris Blum, co-founder and CEO of Action Title Research. “The acquisition allows us to deliver our suite of integrated, automated and digitized title solutions to customers across the New England market immediately.”

The acquisition of Eastland Title Services marks Action Title Research’s first deal since Strattam Capital’s investment in late 2021 to drive geographic expansion and fuel product growth.

“Eastland understands the New England title search market and has expanded its offerings and client base over the last ten years,” said Peter Apter, CEO of Eastland Title Services. “By joining forces with Action, we will increase our throughput capacity, modernize our systems and processes by using Action’s technology stack, and leverage Action’s management and organizational structure to support growth.”
