About Us


No Substitute for Experience

Dedicated to Excellence

Proliant Settlement Systems was founded in 2018 by Michael Strat, Robert Considine, Richard Parsons, and John Apostol. The founding partners spent years identifying, developing, and perfecting a title agency franchise platform that eliminates the traditional barriers to entry into the industry. As owners of the company, they had the power and flexibility to completely overhaul existing systems, minimize red tape and eliminate unnecessary procedural steps.
