Hudson & Marshall Acquired by Fidelity National Financial

Fidelity National Financial (FNF) announced the acquisition of Hudson & Marshall (H&M), a full-service auction company, Monday.

FNF and H&M are partnering to further enhance the services FNF can provide to its lender, servicer, and real estate agent relationships. Under FNF’s umbrella, ServiceLink, a provider of transaction services to the mortgage and finance industries, is launching ServiceLink Auction, a full-service auction platform that will provide foreclosure and REO auction services fully integrated with ServiceLink’s suite of products. H&M will be the driving force behind this new service.

“With ServiceLink Auction, we are providing a service for our customers who have been looking for auction alternatives,” said Chris Azur, CEO of ServiceLink. “This service complements our default offerings and allows us to be the single service provider that the industry can count on to provide timely liquidity and optimal market value in the disposition of assets.”

“As the industry leader in quality, compliance and an overarching commitment to customer excellence, ServiceLink is committed to consistently meeting the needs of our changing industry,” Azur said. “In partnership with Hudson and Marshall’s long-history of auction leadership and innovative technology platforms, we are certain that ServiceLink Auction will become the go-to resource for servicers.”

Trixy Castro, CEO of Hudson & Marshall, was originally founder and CEO of Genesis Auctions, which H&M previously merged with in 2015. She then took over at Hudson & Marshall.

“The partnership with ServiceLink provides an even greater reach for Hudson & Marshall’s innovative disposition offerings,” said Castro. “It’s a great match and we are excited about the impact we can make together on the real estate industry.”
