The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Under the leadership of John Keratsis, Boston National has proven its best-in-class service value proposition to its clients, significantly expanded its geographic footprint and become an industry innovator in title and settlement services,” said Nick Smith, president, Incenter LLC. “As we look to expand our end-to-end solution for our clients, we constantly seek opportunities to bolster our capabilities through the addition of top-tier talent and, when it makes sense, through acquisitions like this one. We are confident that our clients will immediately benefit from this relationship and we look forward to putting the full breadth of Boston National’s offering to work on their behalf.”
Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Boston National provides comprehensive, residential and commercial title and settlement services in all 50 states; leveraging state-of-the-art technology and a unique, channel-specific service delivery model.

We are grateful for our clients’ trust and loyalty and we’re confident that this relationship will only increase our opportunity to provide our industry-leading customer service to an even broader audience.”
