I'm off to Las Vegas for a couple of days, not to gamble, but to moderate a panel on the future business of local title agents at the upcoming American Land Title Association's technology show. With their business under scrutiny and consumer groups clamoring for more regulatory control, some may think betting that independent title agents can grow their businesses in the near future might be against the odds. I don't.
I'll be visiting with some technologists that believe their offerings could help agents grow their business, even in a hostile environment. We'll see. I'm hoping for a lot of audience participation and a lively session. If you're going to be in town for the show, be sure to drop by the session on growing your geographic footprint with technology.
