Top 10 Reasons to Start Your Title Career in Florida

beach-waves-crashing

Have you considered moving to Florida for a career in title insurance?

We seem to have an influx of people moving into the state of Florida. The latest census shows upwards of 900 people a day move to Florida.  A lot of that has to do with our sunshine, our tax structure (no state income taxes), and our booming economy!

In several areas of the state, there are housing shortages, and with shortages comes opportunity, job growth, construction, a lot of real estate transactions, and more opportunities for a career in the title insurance arena. Think about it. Every piece of land sold needs a title company. Every mortgage given requires title insurance. Every new condo built, apartment complex constructed, or orange grove converted into a subdivision, a title insurance company is often times at the heart of the process.

We’ve put together this TOP 10 reasons why it’s worth moving to the Tampa Bay Area and starting your career with the FLORIDA AGENCY NETWORK:

1. Beaches

Lots of beaches. You know what a day at the beach has in common with a snowstorm in Minnesota? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING .

2.  The Tampa Bay Lightning

Yes, we  have hockey in Florida. Perhaps you’ve heard about this guy Jeff Vinik? He owns the Lightning, and has pledged nearly $3 Billion dollars in infrastructure, improvements, new development, and more into  Downtown Tampa and Channelside areas.

3. Did you hear Mosaic is moving its headquarters here?

Mosaic, a Fortune 500 company is moving its headquarters from Minnesota (sorry guys) to Tampa Bay. All those execs need housing and title work. Just sayin’.

4. Florida Winters

Also known as “Those 2 days in January the temperature gets into the 50’s.” Brrrr….bundle up!

5. Cryptocurrency and Blockchain

Currently, we are involved in numerous conversations nationwide on providing solutions in this space. And yes, we can transact on a home using Bitcoin.

6. Technology

We consider ourselves to be an IT/Software/Technology company cleverly disguised as one of Florida’s Largest Title agencies. Google FLORIDA AGENCY NETWORK to see our numerous releases and media coverage, like this one or this one.

7. Disney World

Need I say more? Seriously, anywhere in the state is a only few hours from The Happiest Place on Earth. Orlando offers so much to do you’ll never get enough. More parks, more rides, more attractions, and more FOOD!

8. Ybor City

This area is a MUST SEE! Loaded with food, history, culture, cigars, and possibly, the TAMPA BAY RAYS! Ybor offers a little something for everyone.

9. Bern’s Steakhouse

A signature staple in the Tampa Bay area, Bern’s Steakhouse has been rated the #1 steakhouse in Florida. Take a step back in time with it’s amazing atmosphere and private dessert room. Bern’s has the largest private wine collection in the world with over 600,000 bottles.

10. The FLORIDA AGENCY NETWORK

Our organization is an awesome place to work and call home! We have some of the absolute best people in the business here. Large company perks with small company culture. We are statewide, have some amazing systems and solutions, phenomenal leadership of people who truly care about you and our clients.
