Is Owning Your Own Title Company Right For You?
Whether you work in the real estate industry or you’re simply a motivated entrepreneur, starting and operating a title company can help you take control of your future. While there are several steps to owning a title company, you may wonder whether or not you’d be a good fit to embark on this rewarding process.
At Proliant, we help make your dreams a reality by owning and operating a successful title company franchise. Before you take the leap, you’ll want to consider the following:
What Is Your Background?
Naturally, having a unique knowledge of the title industry can be a benefit for those interested in owning their own title company. However, those already immersed in the real estate industry are excellent candidates for title company ownership.
Anyone who is involved in the transfer of real estate knows what it takes to be successful and have worked to build relationships in the industry. These professionals include:
- Realtor® Brokers
- High-Producing Team Lead Realtors
- Real Estate Attorneys
- Mortgage Brokers/Lenders
- Community Banks/Credit Unions
- Title Professionals
While real estate and title company experience can reduce the training curve, through Proliant’s training program, even entrepreneurial-minded individuals who network with those in the business can succeed as a franchisee.
What Motivates You?
No matter what your area of expertise, successful franchise owners share certain qualities in common — including strong entrepreneurial resolve, focus, integrity, and dedication. Above all, they understand their business model and the primary sources of their business for their title company.
