NORTH AMERICAN TITLE INSURANCE COMPANY is a seasoned title insurance underwriter, helping title agents to achieve their individual business goals for more than 60 years. Today, the company conducts real estate settlement services in 39 states and the District of Columbia through a network of experienced, independent agents and its affiliates. In the past several years, we have become known as the “underwriter next door,” because our associates are always easy to reach and our processes are, at all times, quick and straightforward. Our agency application process is fast and transparent for qualified agents. NATIC offers a one-hour underwriting response guarantee that is unparalleled in our industry. In addition, we value our agents based on their title industry knowledge and experience, not just on profits alone.

Michael Holden

Vice President Strategic Agency Manager

A third-generation title professional, I have been serving the title industry since 1989. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri and have previously owned and operated a large title agency in Missouri. Prior to joining NATIC, I was national agency manager for two different regional underwriters. As an active member of the American Land Title Association, I have served on several committees and have previously served on the agents’ section to the board of governors.

My passion is speaking and teaching the next generation about the land title business. Throughout my career, I have taught classes to a cumulative total of over 10,000 students. I have been a speaker for several state land title association conventions and provide CE classes to title agents in the Midwest. Having a wealth of knowledge about the history of the land title industry in the United States, I author a monthly article titled: “The Ramblings of a Title Man.” In 2007, I was recognized as a “Top 40 under 40” by The Title Report. In 2020, my second book, “The Ramblings of a Title Man – Second Edition,” was released and is available at www.lulu.com. My family has celebrated 100 years of service to the land title industry and published an historical website, www.holden100.info, to celebrate the century milestone for the family.
 
After working as both an agent and an underwriter, I understand the critical partnership between the two. Working as a title agent is a tough, but rewarding job, and my goal is building a partnership that enhances a title agent’s success. North American Title Insurance Company is focused on building a responsive and nimble relationship with its agents, representing a hands-on alternative to the oversized corporate underwriting companies.

    The IRS is a creditor like no other. It has a set of rules and terminology unto itself, such that working within its confines can become, in some cases, a specialized skill. As such, escrow personnel and title examiners are well-advised to become familiar with the different procedures used by the IRS.
