Chicago company acquires Evergreen Title of Brookfield


Chicago Title Insurance Co., a national provider of title insurance and real estate services, is acquiring Evergreen Title Corp., a Brookfield-based title insurance agency.

The Evergreen office at 210 Regency Court in Brookfield will be closed, and the acquired company will operate out of the Chicago Title regional headquarters at 20900 Swenson Drive in Waukesha.

"We have worked with Evergreen Title for many years, and we know the team there as an experienced, highly professional group," said Richard Smith, vice president and area manager for Chicago Title. "Now that it's part of Chicago Title, Evergreen Title's customers can count on continued high quality service."

Charlie Hall, owner of Evergreen Title, is joining Chicago Title as a senior account executive, along with several other Evergreen Title employees. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

"Everyone who works with us - including real estate brokers, bankers and attorneys - counts on Chicago Title for its industry leadership, its long-term stability, and its top quality offerings. As we grow, our focus remains on providing the very best products and services," Smith said.

This latest acquisition is part of Chicago Title's continued expansion in this region.  The company has opened new branch offices in Mequon and West Bend over the last two years.
