Out & About...

The FNTI Team hosted a speakeasy-themed dinner at the annual Texas Land Title Institute in San Antonio. Agents were treated to an entertaining evening of fine dining, cocktails, hand-rolled cigars, dancing and live jazz music. Buzzing with conversation and laughter from the get-go, guests enjoyed the opportunity to build lasting relationships with other agents in attendance. Chris Phillips and the FNTI group would like to thank all those who attended for spending the evening with them.

The FNTI Agency and Underwriting Teams traveled to San Antonio December 6-8 to network, train and support as a Gold Sponsor at the TLTI.  Designed for real estate attorneys, agency owners and advanced closers, the annual Texas Land Title Institute brings top title professionals to the beautiful Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort for a world-class education program.

Messages from the CEO | First National Title Insurance Reports Strong Results through Q3
 

First National Title Insurance Company (FNTI) continues to achieve incredible growth rates on a year-over-year basis.

The reason we are so close to reaching $100 million in gross revenues is that many of you would consider 2017 a banner year.

It is the independent, entrepreneurial spirit that is driving that success...

DJ's Motivational Monday | Connecting with Others
DJ Horn's Motivational Monday's
 

Connecting with people is so important when influencing others. In fact, I believe connecting is the foundation of sales. You see, relating to another person is a two-way street. If you truly connect, you learn what the other party wants and they learn what you want. If you intentionally focus on their needs, you will find more often than not that they will go to work providing what you need as well.

With that in mind, let me officially welcome you to the Holiday Season! What a beautiful time of year it is to celebrate love, relationships, and the spirit of giving. How do you plan to connect with others this Holiday Season? Will you put money in the Salvation Army bucket to get a nod of thanks from the caring soul ringing the bell in the cold? Will you spend time at the toy drive for needy kids? Will you buy a gift for a child found...
