Is your agency set up to close transactions using remote online notarization (RON)? If so, the American Land Title Association (ALTA) is encouraging you to let lenders know by updating your ALTA Registry listing.
“RON is in high demand and lenders are actively looking for title and settlement companies that can close their loans using this technology,” the association said in a recent post. “Being RON Ready could lead to new revenue during these difficult times.”
There is no cost to be included on the ALTA Registry.
Jim leaves an impressive legacy that spans more than four decades in our industry.
It is with admiration and gratitude for a job well done that we announce the retirement of Jim Hensley, our Midwest regional agency manager. Jim has been transitioning toward retirement for several months, and his last day with Alliant National will be May 29th.
As he enters this new phase, Jim leaves an impressive legacy that spans more than four decades in our industry. When Jim joined our organization in 2013, his deep operations experience on both the agent and underwriter sides made him a crucial hire for Alliant National. We’ve seen tremendous success in the Midwest thanks to his efforts.
But we didn’t just gain an amazing title professional when we hired Jim Hensley; many of us gained a mentor and friend. When you talk to Jim, you always know you’re speaking with someone who lives a life of service to others. His faith, and his love for his family, his country and the people in our industry comes shining through.
In these months as Jim neared retirement, he worked tirelessly to ensure that Regional Manager Manoj Purohit and his team are well positioned to meet the needs of our agents moving forward. I am personally grateful for the time Jim has invested in our company and in teaching me about commitment to this industry.
The future is bright, but like us, we know many of you have come to rely on Jim, his straightforward honesty, and his uncommon ability to find the right words, even in difficult times. We all will miss him.
Feel free to join us in wishing Jim and his family a happy retirement!

Alliant National Title is Excited to Announce the Promotion of Jean E. Bailey.
Jean joined Alliant National early last year after a stellar career as in-house counsel and Chief Title Officer at Rattikin Title Company, and she has adapted extremely well to the risk decision-making process as an underwriting attorney for Alliant National.
She has also done a terrific job in communicating with agents such as this Texas agent who said: “Excellent underwriting assistance by Jean Bailey, thank you! Wow. Another well-known underwriting counsel we both know with a different company would push the math back to us!”
And another agent who said: “I wanted to let you know that I am extremely pleased with Jean Bailey. She is very pleasant to work with and very helpful. She went out of her way to assist in a difficult transaction; even called and spoke with the client to help them understand the requirement. I have truly enjoyed working with her and will continue to contact her for all my underwriting needs. She is Amazing!!!”
Visit our social media to Congratulate Jean on her well-deserved promotion.
One of the best things to ever happen to Alliant National Title was the addition of Lin Brasier as Regional Underwriting Counsel.
It is said that all good things must come to an end. BUT, in
some cases the “good things” coming to an end for one, may actually be the most
incredible thing for someone else. One of the best things to ever happen to
Alliant National Title was the addition of Lin Brasier as Regional Underwriting
Counsel. Lin’s vast knowledge base has been used by Alliant National title
agents for almost 6 years after 37 years with a national underwriter. When Lin
came to Alliant National, he promised that he would work for “two years.” That was almost 6 years ago.
As of March 31, 2020,
Lin will have the pleasure of joining his wonderful wife Carol, who has shared
him with the title industry for almost 5 decades, in deciding just what he is
going to do every day that doesn’t include title insurance. Yes, after a career
spanning more than 43 years, Lin Brasier, will be joining the ranks of those
who are called retired.
