"We welcome the professionals of Land Tarnsfer to our team and know that their expertise and their excellent reputation will serve to enhance our ability to provide our clients with the highest quality standards possible.” - Kenneth Meccia
Manhattan/Westchester, NY (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
Kenneth Meccia, President of Statewide Abstract, the largest family owned title agency in Westchester, today announced the acquisition of Land Transfer, Ltd.
Statewide Abstract Corp. has been providing title insurance to the real estate industry for more than 35 years. They maintain long-standing client relationships with premier financial institutions, law firms, developers and real estate professionals throughout the immediate tri-state area as well as on a national level.
Land Transfer, Ltd. was established in 1986 by Gordon B. Perkel, former Assistant Regional Counsel to Chicago Title Insurance Company. In 1992, Gordon was joined by Michelle Natoli and together they ensured that Land Transfer, Ltd. would provide a high level of customer service to their clients.
Over the past three decades Ken Meccia, President of Statewide, has seen numerous changes in the title industry. "Perhaps the most significant change is the fact that almost every mortgage company and bank now has their own internal title company which enables them to keep more of the revenue stream in house," states Meccia.
So in an industry that has seen a significant amount of downsizing how has Statewide, the oldest family owned title company in Westchester, continued to expand? "We believe the difference is twofold, first we have 35 years in the business and during that time we have seen it all. So our depth of experience simply can't be matched. Second we have assembled a dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced team of individuals who care about the clients, understand the work they do and always go the extra mile and I believe that’s what sets Statewide apart and has enabled us to continue to grow as an independent title insurance company while others have disappeared. We welcome Gordon and Michelle to our team and know that their expertise and the reputation of Land Transfer will serve to enhance our ability to serve our clients with the highest quality standards possible," Meccia continued.
