James L. Anderson started Championship Title of Austin, LLC, just over two years ago, but he is not new to the title industry. He grew up in the business working at his father’s title company in Rockport where he did odd jobs until his father put him in the plant as a young teen to learn abstracting and title. In high school, he moved on to the legal concepts of the title business.
James continued working there summers through college and law school. He then had a solo practice for a few years before forming the law firm of Anderson Roberts, PLLC in Austin with Trey Roberts and Justin Roberts. In 2017, he and his partners learned that Texas was about to enact the allowance of remote online closings (RON) for real estate transactions. They saw this as a new, innovative, and technology forward way to efficiently close business volume while keeping to a virtually paperless system. The Championship Title staff implemented the new RON procedures when the legislation became effective in September 2018, which enabled them to offer a new service to their customers. Having this service in place also prepared them to continue working under the current COVID-19 restrictions. Recently, Brad Versteegh joined Championship Title as the President and will continue to focus on growing the company staff and business.
“There is a synergy between how we and FNTI look at the marketplace with a forward-looking tech presence that matches our view,” said James. “We love being able to talk with the underwriting counsel and getting the experience and insight they offer.”
