Changing The Title Industry

Through Relentless Innovation

Our Vision

From the very beginning our vision has been to transform the title industry and provide everyone involved in the real estate transaction with the most accurate information as efficiently as possible.

Don Cantral | Founder and CEO

Today that vision has evolved into a truly disruptive model that delivers a virtually instant title commitment or report without sacrificing historically proven search and examination methods. We leverage more data sources than anyone else. Because we process more transactions than any other company through automation, we can recognize and utilize past experiences with the property and parties involved allowing us to bypass expensive and time consuming rework. Imagine starting with just an address, letting us go to work, and, then just minutes later getting a complete title report supported by all the required documents, chains of title, maps, and taxes. We’ve imagined that for years. And, today we deliver that to a majority of the country and a majority of the transactions. We won’t stop innovating until we bring that to nearly every property across this great nation.

Our Story

A couple of Title guys walk into a sports bar with their friend, a software developer, and the Title guy says… well actually they had a conversation about the frustration of getting Title records. The outdated process was slow, expensive, and lacking in availability of reliable data. The software developer was Don Cantral, and after sketching out a solution on the back of napkin, they all realized that the idea was disruptive and the timing was right. In the next 30 days, Don had a working prototype and within 5 months had raised half a million in seed capital. Early success attracted over $10 million invested to grow the business.

That was in 2003, and since then the patented scanning and pattern recognition technology has been refined to the point where it replaces a completely manual process taking hours and days with an automated process taking minutes, for routine orders. NextAce technology now powers around 25% of the nation’s title transactions, more than a million a year. As the business grows, Don continues to find new opportunities to innovate in the Title industry. Consumers are experiencing huge shifts in every sector they use for goods and services, and NextAce sees the need to keep leveraging technology until they can get a title commitment delivered in the same way.
