KOSCIUSKO COUNTY — In an announcement made this week, Metropolitan Title Company will expand its service area coverage to Kosciusko County through the acquisition of Bodkin Abstract Company. Metropolitan Title Company, based in Mishawaka, offers property transaction services and title insurance across northern Indiana, now with 14 service locations in 11 counties.
Bob Sanders, President of Bodkin Abstract, will remain with the company though its name will formally change to Metropolitan Title Company.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Bob and Bodkin Abstract,” said David Smessaert of Metropolitan Title. “They have an impeccable reputation among real estate professionals throughout Warsaw and Kosciusko County. At the same time, they’re community-minded and take special care of anyone purchasing property. It’s the same way we’ve approached this business for 150 years. Indiana residents know they can trust our advice and our services.”
Smessaert said the change will not impact any of Bodkin Abstract’s current clients. The company’s employees will remain on staff.
“Bodkin Abstract Company has provided property transaction services in Kosciusko County for 83 years,” Smessaert said. “This partnership enhances the level of services benefiting residents and real estate professionals in our community.”
