Fast-Growing Proper Title Insurance Agency Opens Orland Park, Ill., Office

May 28, 2021

Proper Title, LLC, a full-service title insurance firm serving the residential and commercial real estate industry, has announced the opening of a new office at 15643 S. 94th Ave., in Orland Park, Ill., to accommodate its fast-growing business. The firm has hired Kathy Connelly as the lead salesperson of the new southwest suburban office, which marks the 11th closing location for Proper Title across Chicago and its suburbs and its fourth new office in the past two years.

“With the surge in closings due to the heated housing market, the Orland Park office is opening at the ideal time and further supports our aggressive plans for expansion,” said Kim O’Donnell, vice president of business development at Proper Title. “We’ve nearly doubled our staff in the past year to support our influx of work. The rapid pace of adding new offices shows our commitment to serving as many clients as possible throughout Chicagoland.”

The new Orland Park office offers four closing rooms and curbside capability to accommodate Proper Title’s steady stream of residential and commercial closings.

“The Orland Park office is a natural extension of our growth as we continue to capture more and more market share of the title business throughout the Chicago area,” O’Donnell said. “Kathy is a key addition to our title insurance team as we provide unmatched customer service in helping our clients close loans quickly and safely during the pandemic and beyond.”

Connelly is an experienced sales manager who has worked in the building materials industry for more than 12 years. She also has more than seven years of experience as an account executive at Residential Title Services. As a longtime board member of the Disabled Patriot Fund in Orland Park, Connelly has helped raise more than $1 million for the fund through corporate outreach and fundraisers.

“Proper Title has a great entrepreneurial spirit that is a perfect fit for my skill set,” said Connelly. “Orland Park is the hub of the southwest suburbs with its vibrant commercial and retail businesses lining La Grange Road. I’m excited to help Proper Title quickly expand its brand recognition in this robust market.”

Shortly after its founding in 2013, Proper Title established offices in Chicago’s Loop, Bucktown and Irving Park neighborhoods as well as north and northwest suburbs including Northbrook, Libertyville, Palatine and Park Ridge. Three years ago, Proper Title expanded to the western suburbs with an office in Oak Brook, followed by locations in St. Charles and Naperville. The title company also offers remote closings to attorney clients.

Proper Title is the No. 1 issuing agent in Illinois for Fidelity National Finance (FNF) and has earned the FNF Excellence in Action award for six consecutive years. It was also included on the Crain’s Chicago Business “Best Places to Work” list in 2019 and 2020.
