Vancouver, WA October 17, 2016
WFG National Title Company of Clark County WA, LLC, dba WFG National Title, a Williston Financial Group company (“WFG”) has acquired the business of Vancouver, Washington-based Columbia Title Agency through an acquisition of all Columbia Title’s assets. WFG has also announced that it has proudly hired all employees from Columbia Title at the time of the acquisition. The Williston Financial Group family is one of the nation’s fastest growing real estate service providers.
Columbia Title’s team and business come into the WFG family with two existing office locations in Vancouver, Washington. According to WFG Chairman and CEO, Patrick Stone, the move “is a natural progression of WFG’s growth in the Northwestern states. We have seen tremendous success in this market, especially with our local direct operations,” said Stone. “Columbia Title, which has a long history of client focus and service, is a powerful match with WFG’s operations.”
Dennis Gish, County Manager, formerly of Columbia Title, will manage the two Vancouver offices. “We look forward to operating under the WFG culture,” said Gish. “We’ve also operated under the philosophy that absolutely nothing comes before the client. So, we expect our existing customers will continue to enjoy superior service as well as benefiting from an influx of client-focused resources that comes from working with one of the nation’s leading underwriters.”
