Legal Title Services Joins Action Title Research to Enhance The Title Production Client Experience

Glen Rock, New Jersey (October 5, 2022) – Action Title Research, a technology-based search solution for the title insurance market, announced the acquisition of Legal Title Services, LLC. Legal Title Services has joined forces with Action Title Research to modernize and automate title production processes to enrich the client experience and scale the business far more efficiently. Through this acquisition, Action Title Research widens its client base in New England, expanding its footprint and the opportunity to modernize title production processes benefiting many more clients and transactions.

Legal Title Services brings 37 years of providing comprehensive title searches, municipal searches, court searches, expert testimony, and a variety of other real estate-related services to its clients. Legal Title Services has extensive experience in residential, commercial, and foreclosure searches, serving title insurance companies and their sales representatives, attorneys and law firms, and title agencies and their underwriters. Legal Title Services, based in Connecticut, has strong lasting relationships throughout New England. Joseph Sanfilippo is a well-respected title expert and attorney known for his deep insight, attention to detail, and exceptional personalized service to his clients.

Through this acquisition and the completed integration of Eastland Title Services in April, Action Title Research continues its mission of automating and digitizing the U.S. real estate landscape by bringing its proprietary workflow software to new clients in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine, building off of its strong base and success in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Action Title Research’s strategy is to serve its clients with unrivaled service and support by utilizing its people, technology, and processes to automate and simplify the title production process for clients. Legal Title Services will be fully integrated into Action Title Research’s SmartSearchTM workflow software as part of the AES platform, modernizing and automating its workflow while enhancing the client experience.

“I’m honored to have served such exceptional clients over the years, and Legal Title Services has found a great partner in Action Title Research to take us forward, making use of its advanced technology based processes to serve our clients even better”, said Joseph Sanfilippo, Founder, and CEO of Legal Title Services.

“We’re thrilled about Legal Title Services joining the Action Title Research family,” said Chris Blum, co-founder, and CEO, of Action Title Research. “Legal Title Service’s expertise in all things search, residential, commercial, and foreclosure is exceptional. As with our previous acquisition of Eastland, we will quickly integrate Joe’s expert search practice with our automated processes and technology.”

“Action Title Research has had an incredible 2022, meeting the dynamic real estate market with spectacular service for its clients.,” said Jonathan Busch, principal, Strattam Capital. “Welcoming Joseph and his team at Legal Title Services continues Action Title Research’s disciplined geographic expansion plan, giving more clients access to Action Title Research’s proprietary technology platform to modernize their title production process.”
