Empora Title: Simplifying Real Estate Transactions

Empora Title: Simplifying Real Estate Transactions

3 min max read

There's a simple truth in the real estate world that many have just come to accept: the process is anything but straightforward. We've all heard the stories, or even lived them—names being typed and retyped across documents, the endless back-and-forth between loan officers, appraisers, title companies, county recorders, and auditors. The consensus? It's ripe for disruption.

This is where Empora Title steps in, embodying the role of the much-needed champion with a primary goal: make it easy for everybody. It's a mantra that's engraved in the very essence of their workflow. Their endeavor? To digitize and streamline what has traditionally been a cumbersome and paper-oriented process.

Empora Title is innovating in an industry where innovation couldn't be more welcome. Megan Harris, the visionary founder and CEO behind Empora, put it this way in a recent discussion:

"We're leading the charge of making it easy for everybody. If you just think about a real estate transaction, a buyer in a transaction,    their name will be typed, you know, from start to finish at least 35 times by all the different parties who need it."

This redundancy and inefficiency clearly highlighted a broken system, where the actual transfer of data was archaic, to say the least.

Making an Immediate Impact

Since its inception in 2020, Empora Title hit the ground running. In the first year alone, they completed over 1,000 transactions and saved real estate investors upwards of $750,000. With such a strong beginning, it wasn't long before expansion became a topic on the table.

Now operating in seven states, Megan's fresh perspective as a Forbes 30 Under 30 CEO with a dual background in product management and economics is bringing a sorely needed boost to a field that has long been bogged down by tradition and slow adaptation to the digital age.


Empora’s Mission-Focused Approach

It was in her early encounters with the title industry, during her time working with technology companies, that Megan noticed a disconnect:

"I saw how broken software is at title companies and frankly, how talented a lot of the people are who hold all this knowledge about title and how to get real estate deals done in their heads."

This revelation was what sparked the inception of Empora. They decided that rebuilding the title company software from scratch wasn’t just an option; it was a necessity for delivering a seamless and transparent closing experience for all parties involved.

A Digital-First Mindset

Empora's approach is notably digital-first — an unsurprising but groundbreaking strategy in the real estate sector. From online platforms that reduce the need for physical presence to meetings that only happen if planned, Empora is carving out a niche for those who want to transact real estate deals from the comfort of their home or even the luxury of their private jet.

Empora's emphasis on becoming 'partners in business' means accountability and continuous improvement with each deal. It’s about making the closing process less about red tape and more about relationships and reliability.

Connect with Empora Title

Empora's approachable, tech-forward disposition and their specialization in catering to the needs of real estate investors are just a slice of what they have to offer. As Megan puts it:

"If you can connect with us, follow our journey on social media, request a demo, or even interact with us during events—we are here to redefine closings and ensure that anybody involved in a real estate transaction walks away with a memorable, positive experience."

For those digging deep into real estate, whether seasoned or just taking their first steps like wholesalers, Empora Title is showing that transparency, technology, and tenacity are not just buzzwords—they are the future of real estate transactions.
