Stewart recently reported another successful quarter and we now find ourselves peering into the holidays while interpreting recent CFPB announcements. In the midst of hectic schedules, uncertain economic conditions and changing regulations, I am reminded of how much we have to be thankful for.
Stewart provides a valuable service in an essential industry that drives a significant component of our economy. I am able to work with a tremendous team of associates who understand the importance of what we do and the importance of creating a magnificent experience for our customers. Our direct offices continue to grow and measure the highest levels of customer satisfaction. Our agency network of trusted providers is setting the bar for quality. We are expanding services to mortgage lenders to help them adapt to changing conditions. We are growing our international presence as we understand our role in the global marketplace.
None of that is possible without you.
Whether you are a Stewart associate, agency, customer or shareholder, I want to thank you for your involvement with Stewart. Regardless of how we interact, know that we are committed to improving that relationship.
Thank you for joining us and may your holiday season be a joyous one!
