News Release

CARMEL, Ind. - Hamilton National Title, LLC is excited to announce the acquisition of Indianapolis-area title agent Landmark Title. Founded in 1990, Landmark Title has established a legacy of providing the central Indiana real estate community with exemplary title insurance and escrow closing services. Landmark's ownership group included prominent real estate brokers Bif Ward and Matt McLaughlin, attorney Jeff Slaughter and title industry executive Patricia Porter.

Landmark Title's clients include leading banks, real estate developers and builders, real estate brokers and financial services firms throughout the Indianapolis area.

Landmark Title’s Managing Member Patricia Porter who has joined Hamilton Title in an executive leadership position commented “We are excited to continue to service our client needs under the Hamilton Title umbrella of insurance products, expertise and technology platforms. Our employees and the clients they have served will continue to benefit from the legacy of Landmark, while gaining access to increased opportunities at Hamilton Title.” Leading real estate broker Bif Ward added “there have been so many changes in the title industry in recent years and Hamilton Title has been at the forefront of the industry. We are thrilled to have Landmark’s team join Hamilton to continue to provide the best title services available in Indiana."

Hamilton National Title was acquired in July of 2013 by Daniel Fowler, an Indiana native who owns a group of title and escrow businesses in the Midwest. Fowler commented “it has been such a pleasure to work with many of the leading real estate executives and attorneys in Indiana since acquiring Hamilton last year. It is very flattering that the Landmark ownership believed Hamilton Title was so well positioned to service the Indiana marketplace and their current clientele, that they chose us above other potential companies vying to purchase their agency. We intend to continue to add talented people and make acquisitions throughout Indiana to solidify our position as a leading title and escrow service provider."

The two companies will centralize their operations at Hamilton National's current location on Carmel Drive. We look forward to continuing to provide first-rate title services and products to our clients, and to building new client relationships in the dynamic and ever-changing Indianapolis real estate market.
