First American Corporation, through its family of companies,
is the nation's leading provider of business information and
related products and services. Its subsidiaries operate within
three complementary business segments: title insurance and
services, which provides insured information about real property
along with technical and software solutions for the real estate
industry; real estate information and services, which provides
a full menu of products and services that mortgage lenders
need to originate, close and service loans; and consumer information
and services, which offers a broad range of credit reporting,
insurance services and other informational products that operate
independent of interest rate and real estate cycles. Each
of these business segments leverage First American's advanced
technology infrastructure designed to automate production
and electronically speed delivery of information across the
company's network and directly to its customers.
May of 2000, the company changed its name to The First American
Corporation to more accurately reflect the company's diverse
business mix, which includes a number of non-financial services.
As the company continues to diversify its businesses and add
products and services that operate independent of, or counter
to, real estate cycles, it is also aggressively cross marketing
its products and services to its growing customer base.
well into its second century, First American is still based
in Santa Ana, although it recently relocated to its new home
office. Its founding family continues to direct operations.
Its reputation for excellent work and conscientious service
is not only intact, but has been enhanced. As First American
grows and diversifies through its family of companies, it
continues to leverage the ingenuity of its skilled employees
to find innovative ways to create and deliver valuable products
and services to its customers.
