Throughout the years, Chicago Title has grown in stature with a solid reputation for integrity and standing the test of time. In 1920 the scope of the Company's business extended beyond Cook County, Illinois where it started in 1847. In the late 1940s, Chicago Title moved to 111 W. Washington Street and continued developing and expanding its extensive statewide organization. In the 1950s Chicago Title reached beyond its state borders to increase its business. It was then, Chicago Title Insurance Company, as we know it today, was developed as a wholly owned subsidiary of Chicago Title and Trust Company. In March 2000, Chicago Title Insurance Company merged with FNF to become the largest title company in the nation. Much has changed in 150-plus years, but the fundamental principles upon which the Company was founded are steadfast. They are outstanding customer service, untarnished reputation for integrity and a rock solid, enduring identity that is synonymous with the necessary expertise to insure your most prized asset: your home.
