VP, Business Development
For Ticor Title representative Patrick Taylor, success in the industry has been built upon a foundation of strong collegial relationships and excellent customer care. An actor and model who appeared in a variety of print campaigns and other media outlets, Patrick understands that cultivating a positive image involves digging below the surface, where real substance lies.
Patrick began working in title in 1988, launching his career with an independently-owned firm that has since been acquired by international powerhouse Ticor Title. “I’ve never left the company that I started with, because despite changes to the name, I have always enjoyed the opportunity to work with a great team,” he reveals. “Our group remains family-oriented, ethical, and committed to providing our clients with reliable services. Those are qualities that are important to me not only in my business, but in my own life as well.”
His dedication to the well-being of his customers has earned Patrick a thriving book of repeat and referral business, as well as abundant professional recognition for his efforts. In addition to earning the coveted President’s Club and Chairman’s Club production honors, he has also been named an Affiliate of the Year with his local Board of Realtors®, and he proudly upholds himself to the standards of the award. “I put my customers’ needs at the forefront of my actions,” he explains. “I’m available, communicative, and forthright in my business.” Adds Patrick, “I’m so fortunate to work with a team of individuals who uphold my business philosophy. Our clients seek credibility and security, and we do our best to consistently meet their needs.”
In addition to his 20+ years of experience in the title industry, Patrick reveals that his clients appreciate the support and resources available through Ticor Title. A caring, experienced and highly competent team of professionals helps to ensure a smooth and successful title transaction from start to finish. “While glitches occasionally arise, I work with individuals who are on top of things, who are extremely detail-oriented and who make it possible to resolve most problems in a timely and efficient manner,” observes Patrick. He also counts on the support and leadership of Vice President and Assistant County Manager Joe Duarte, who understands the challenges facing today’s title agents and their clientele. “Joe is fantastic,” exclaims Patrick. “He really listens to our ideas as we generate solutions on how to improve upon our services and maintain our competitive edge.” Orange County Manager Rick Bashore, adds Patrick, offers incomparable support to his business and his clients.
Thanks to Ticor Title’s longevity and proven track record, the company has developed an extensive network of professional service providers who offer support and guidance to new and seasoned real estate professionals. “We have excellent resources and direction for our real estate partners,” notes Patrick. Ticor employees are also kept current and up to date on industry changes through a comprehensive series of webinars and seminars.
Though he was born and raised on the East Coast, Patrick has made Southern California his home and has entrenched himself within the community of Orange County. Through an invitation by the Orange County Business Association he has served as Principal for a Day, enjoyed the opportunity to meet with the Mayor of Anaheim, and was fortunate to have audience with President George W. Bush. He is a proud parent to three children, Britney, Bella and Jack, who have earned all-star status in a variety of sports.
As he continues to develop his career within the title industry, Patrick looks forward to further opportunities to cultivate long-term relationships with his clientele. “At the end of the day, we are all working to accomplish the same goals,” he muses. “This is a great business in an exciting and challenging industry, and I am proud to be a part of my clients’ success.”
