New Era at ATG, Same Commitment to Lawyers

New Era at ATG banner

Originally sent via email April 12, 2022

Dear ATG Agents and Shareholders,

I am pleased to announce that we closed on our merger with Guaranteed Rate on April 1, 2022.

This has been an extraordinary experience. And now, the beginning of a new era at ATG!

While our services and commitment to lawyer agents will not change, we are excited to be part of such an innovative, tech-forward company that is dedicated to preserving the lawyer-centric service model that has defined ATG's success over the years.

ATG's story is truly one for the ages. One that few thought possible. Through hard work, dedication, and mutual respect we built an organization admired by many.

Now with Guaranteed Rate's support, we look toward building on that foundation. We will grow this company into a national organization that is admired for our service to the profession, the real estate community, and most importantly the consumers we are here to serve.

Read the press release sent to media a few days after closing. It contains this statement from Guaranteed Rate President and CEO, Victor Ciardelli:

“I have always appreciated and valued the importance of the lawyer’s role in real estate transactions. That is why Guaranteed Rate is committed to the lawyer-agent business model created by ATG. We look forward to building on ATG’s success by giving lawyers and consumers the technology, tools and additional support that will enable ATG to flourish in the years to come."

As we begin this new chapter together, know that ATG will remain the most ardent and effective advocate for lawyers in the conveyancing process — now more than ever.

We built this organization together and we will continue to stay true to the original mission of our founding shareholders. Thank you for your continued support.

Peter J. Birnbaum
President and Chief Executive Officer
