Stewart Title  has acquired Santa Fe, New Mexico-based Prima Title, LLC and the employment of the Prima team.
“As we continue to execute on our strategy of building out and prioritizing strengthening our local markets, the addition of the Prima team in Santa Fe makes us the leader in the local market,” said Ryan Swed , Group Senior Vice President, Stewart Title. “They have built strong real estate relationships, are known for excellent service, and I couldn’t be more excited to add their industry experience and talent to the Stewart family in New Mexico.”
