VP, Local Manager   |  
Local Title Operations
Chicago, Illinois


Dan Johnson currently serves as Vice President and Local Manager for Chicago Title’s National Commercial Services (NCS) local operation in Chicago. Dan joined Chicago Title in 2003 which was right in the middle of the real estate “boom.” With no prior title company experience he started at ground zero coordinating transactions and learning the business. Within that first year he transitioned to closing residential transactions in which he learned the intricacies of closing large-scale condo developments that were so much a part of the real estate landscape at that time. From there, he went on to close both local and national commercial transactions while moving into more a supervisory role. In 2014, he became the Local Services Manager.

I truly believe the NCS Chicago operation is absolutely second-to-none! I have had the pleasure of working alongside some of the most talented people in the business and they continue to inspire me to not only continue to learn more but to also find new ways to ensure the customer’s expectations are not only met but exceeded.

Over the years, NCS Chicago has worked on many large-scale transactions that most offices would never see and inevitably Dan is overwhelmed by how well this group pulls together to ensure the deal runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Customers have many options with the number of title insurance companies out there but Dan believes what keeps them coming back to NCS Chicago is the knowledge and commitment of its staff.

Throughout his career with Chicago Title, Dan has had the pleasure of presenting at the Illinois Paralegal Association’s annual conference along with several other personalized customer meetings/seminars/webinars to keep clients informed of the ever-changing industry guidelines. Dan is also a former licensed Illinois REALTOR®.

With a passion for all things real estate related, Dan spends much of his free time tackling various DIY home remodeling projects around the house. He is also a proud father of two.
