I am pleased to report our results for 2015 and am challenged to express my feelings at reaching this remarkable milestone. With an increase of 37 percent in 2015, our gross revenues grew to $50 million. It is an incredible growth rate and a tribute to you, our independent agents, and your tremendous support that we reached this milestone in just four years.
We made great strides getting First National Title Insurance Company’s (FNTI) message out to the independent agents, and I am humbled by your response. Our business was created and designed to support and service the independent agents. The FNTI independent-agent model is more important than ever as the large underwriters expand their influence into your market. These are exciting and challenging times. We are all competing in the real estate and related-industries market—striving to increase our market share and our revenues. Please be assured that the FNTI team is prepared to provide the tools and resources you need to survive and thrive in this competitive arena. We will help you get that next transaction closed.
Our team expanded last year with the addition of George Stablein, Suzanne Tinsley, and NolaAnn Waggoner and so did our focus. We have the staff to answer the calls, to analyze the problems, and to educate your employees while keeping it personal. Our company motto that we “…do business with those we know, like, and trust” has never been more relevant.
We have big plans and big goals for 2016—and they all include you.
I am most grateful for your continued trust and support. We could not have achieved our goals in 2015 without YOU.
I am also proud of our team’s dedication and commitment to reaching our milestone. We have a great team, and we will continue to build on our success.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
