WFG National Title Grows Presence in Washington with Acquisition

""Williston Financial Group, LLC"":http://cp.willistonfinancial.com/ (WFG), an Oregon-based holding company and parent of multiple real estate and mortgage services firms, recently expanded to Washington with the acquisition of ""Northpoint Escrow & Title"":http://www.onenorthpoint.com/.

WFG is the parent company of wholly owned subsidiaries ""WFG National Title Insurance Company"":http://www.WFGNationalTitle.com, WFG Lender Services, and WFG Title Insurance Company.

""WFG has already established itself in the Northwest, and this transaction solidifies our presence and service capa-


bilities in greater Seattle and Tacoma, regions that constitute over 50 percent of the Washington mortgage market,"" said WFG president and CEO, Patrick Stone.

According to Stone, WFG will continue to expand nationwide.

""We have aggressively established our presence in Washington and Oregon because they are markets that have at times been challenging for major mortgage lenders to access without strong partners present in those regions,"" Stone said. ""We also plan to maintain our aggressive expansion nationwide as the market remains favorable for cost-effective acquisition.""

Stone added, ""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.""

WFG is a national, full-service provider of title insurance and real estate settlement services for lender, commercial, and residential transactions. The WFG family of title insurers is licensed to operate in 39 jurisdictions nationwide.

Northpoint will absorb into the WFG National Title Insurance Company corporate brand shortly after the finalization of the transaction.
