Thomas Title & Escrow was founded in 2006 by Frank W. Busch III and his family. The commercial title and escrow industry was dominated by a handful of large companies and Busch, who was a banking and real estate attorney, had experienced first-hand the deficiencies and poor quality of service from other companies. After years of working with these companies, Busch realized that the product didn’t vary much. It was the level of service that would ultimately be the solution to shake up the established commercial title industry. So Busch formed Thomas Title & Escrow—a title and escrow agency that is underwritten by the largest industry insurers, yet still runs like a specialized boutique with a priority of providing the highest levels of service. Starting out with a singular focus on the commercial sector, the firm was better able to efficiently handle the complexities that often arise with larger, more sophisticated transactions.
While many real estate firms were closing during the real estate crash of 2008, we proved our creativity and agility, and the company not only survived but thrived. Thomas Title & Escrow became the go-to firm for attorneys, bankers and investors in commercial foreclosure and distress situations across the Southwest U.S. By 2011, Thomas Title & Escrow was named one of the fastest growing companies in the Inc. 500/5000 list and in 2012, the firm opened an office in Dallas, Texas.
In May of 2017, we secured a significant strategic investment from industry leader ET Investments out of Parker, Colorado. ET is an investment firm that specializes in title insurance, settlement and real estate technology. ET and its subsidiaries collectively comprise one of the largest title agents in the US with over 800 affiliated employees. The investment has allowed us to grow our brick-and-mortar footprint into a variety of other markets. And importantly, ET provides us with a scalable shared-services platform encompassing finance, accounting, IT, HR and compliance/legal.
