Williston Financial Group LLC has announced the acquisition of Northpoint Escrow & Title, an established, title, escrow and settlement services company serving Puget Sound, Snohomish, King and Pierce counties in Washington, including the Seattle and Tacoma metropolitan areas. WFG is the parent company of wholly-owned subsidiaries WFG National Title Insurance Company, WFG Lender Services and WFG Title Insurance Company, and is a national, full-service provider of title insurance and real estate settlement services for lender, commercial and residential transactions. The Williston Financial Group family of title insurers is currently licensed and operating in 39 jurisdictions nationwide. The acquisition of Northpoint solidifies WFG’s geographic footprint within the greater Northwest. “WFG has already established itself in the Northwest, and this transaction solidifies our presence and service capabilities in greater Seattle and Tacoma, regions which constitute over 50 percent of the Washington mortgage market.” said WFG President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Stone. “We have aggressively established our presence in Washington and Oregon because they are markets which have at times been challenging for major mortgage lenders to access without strong partners present in those regions. We also plan to maintain our aggressive expansion nationwide, as the market remains favorable for cost-effective acquisition. We are pleased with our reception so far in the national market, and remain convinced that now is an optimal time to reach out to customers disaffected by the industry’s internal focus of the past several years.” Northpoint will be absorbed into the WFG National Title Insurance Company corporate brand shortly after the finalization of the transaction.
