First Nationwide Title Agency, LLC, a New Innovator in the Title Insurance Industry, is Poised to Meet the Needs of Today's Complex Real Estate Market

New York, NY, November 20, 2012 --( Steven M. Napolitano, longtime leader in the title insurance industry, proudly announces the debut of First Nationwide Title Agency, LLC. Located in the Daily News building in Midtown Manhattan, First Nationwide is perfectly designed to service the needs of active buyers / sellers / lenders in today's market place. With the current low rates, recapitalizations, foreign investments, and the recovering CMBS market, having a title insurance company that is focused on the clients success is the key to getting deals to closing.

"Our experience makes us better," says Mr. Napolitano. "We get the deal done, and then we go above and beyond. We add value by being a resource for customers. What sets us apart is our depth of knowledge, our service, our experience, and our certainty to close." Mr. Napolitano is the former Executive Vice President of First American Title Insurance Company and President of the New York company. He has more than 25 years in the title insurance industry, and in his capacity as president, chairman, and CEO of the New York Company, he directed over 560 employees in 11 offices, including the sales department, marketing and strategic planning. He was instrumental in the growth of the New York company over the last decade, taking it from a 50 million dollar company to a 250 million dollar company, and making it, at that time, the fifth largest title company in the country. Mr. Napolitano was the leading force in the merger of First American Title Insurance Company of New York with and into First American Title Insurance Company in September 2010.

Chief Legal Counsel and Chief Operating Officer of First Nationwide, Jeffrey Tanen Esq., explains why First Nationwide is a premier title agency: "Better service, plain and simple. We can answer questions and solve problems faster and on a more personal level." Mr. Tanen brings 25 years of experience in complex commercial real estate and was a Founding Partner of Bank, Tanen and Bank, PLLC.

First Nationwide has the unique advantage of combining veteran experience and expertise with a level of focused customer support not possible in a larger corporation. "Our job is to be market-wise," says Patrick Fogarty, Executive Vice President and Sales Manager. Mr. Fogarty has over 25 years of experience in complex residential and commercial transactions. “We pride ourselves on being in the right place at the right time, and to serve our clients’ needs in a consultative manner.”
