Monday, November 17th, 2014

Title Alliance, a RESPA-compliant ESOP leader in joint venture title insurance for the residential real estate industry, is proud to announce that its affiliate, First Land Transfer, LLC, and their real estate partner, Keller Williams Exton celebrated their 10 Year Anniversary of partnership together, bringing high-quality residential real estate and title insurance services to the Chester County Philadelphia area for the past decade.

The company held an exclusive event on November 6, 2014 with the First Land Transfer and Keller Williams Exton teams to celebrate the 10 year milestone. The event was held at the Keller Williams Exton office at Oaklands Corporate Park, in a transformed 6,000 square foot empty office space and featured a fully catered cocktail event by Crocodile Catering, desserts by Beth Purpura, DJ entertainment and a photo booth by Eclipse Entertainment, and floral decorations by Blue Moon Florist.

“Our vision was to plan an elaborate event that would make everyone feel special,” explained Lindsay Smith, Marketing Director of Title Alliance. “Keeping the Keller Williams and First Land Transfer brands in the forefront for the event was very important to the entire planning committee; as without them, we wouldn't have had anything to celebrate.”

At the event, the two companies recognized their success and growth. Since its inception in 2004, First Land Transfer has grown into a team of six employees, where they have completed 4703 total closings and processed 4219 conveyancing files resulting in $4,485,191 in total profits.

“10 years ago when I met Cindy Dickerman [Operating Principal of Keller Williams Exton], I knew she believed in us and in our joint venture model,” said Bill O’Connell, Director Title Alliance. “We are successful because of the teams at First Land and Keller Williams Exton. The Keller Williams Exton agents believe in our ability to hire, train and mentor our staff; and believe in the First Land team's ability to close their clients’ transactions smoothly and professionally.”

Dickerman strongly believes the success of KW Exton has stemmed from following the Keller Williams models of an agent-owned/agent -driven economic system. The Joint Venture with Title Alliance and KW Exton has thrived because of the dedication of both leadership teams. Within the past ten years, the Keller Williams Exton Market Center has shared a profit of over $2.2 million with their agents from 8641 homes sold and 5861 houses put on the market. The team of 235 agents (and counting) has grossed over $6.8 billion in commissions.

“It is the Leadership, Management, and Agents who have made First Land Transfer so uniquely successful.” Dickerman said. “The party was a perfect exclamation of pride. It was a combination of creative elegance, sophistication, and fun.”
