Aaron M. Davis recognizes needs throughout his industry and leverages his expertise to create solutions through various ventures, including Florida Agency Network (FAN), Premier Data Services, Network Transaction Solutions, and several other brands.
During the post Great Recession era (2008 to 2012), with the onset of several new economic policies and regulation under Dodd Frank, there were several additional challenges presented to the title and settlement industry. While CEO at Hillsborough Title, Aaron Davis saw a need to create unity and centralized services for the small to medium size ‘mom and pop’ title agencies. Thus, Florida Agency Network (FAN) was formed. Aaron’s vision for FAN was to create a conglomerate of independent title agencies, settlement service providers, and innovative technology companies providing shared back office solutions, pooled resources, and greater geographic coverage throughout the State of Florida.
Aaron understood the need for heightened security and compliance within the title industry. Also, with the trend of more cloud based, networked, and agile settlement providers, a need for an industry specific boutique provider recognized. Thus, Premier Data Services was born. Originally created to serve the title and settlement industry, Premier Data Services began to evolve and transform into a Managed Services and IT provider for clients beyond the title industry. Premier Data Services’ goal is to develop solidified partnerships with its clients by understanding current and potential IT risks to business and providing solutions to mitigate those threats.
The housing market’s continued growth and a trend toward more compliant third-party vendors in the settlement arena, prompted Aaron to create Network Transaction Solutions. Network Transaction Solutions’ services ranging from title plant search access, municipal lien searches, HOA/COA processing, post-closing/warehousing functions, estoppel/payoff ordering department, national mobile signing division, Remote Online Notarization (RON) services, and much more. Network Transaction Solutions was created to support the transaction process by delivering professionalism with ease, and partnering with clients to meet individual needs.
Hometown Title Network (HTN) specializes in providing custom title related services for Mobile Home and Short Sale transactions. HTN’s Mobile Home services include researching Title(s), preparation of Transfer Documents, transfer of Title(s) and the delivery of Title(s) and documents to applicable parties. HTN will also work to clear any issues found in the process, such as liens not released from current or past owners. Short Sale Services include coordinating communication between the Seller, Agent and Lender to facilitate the short sale approval process, including preparing necessary documentation ahead of time to make the process easier and simpler for all parties.
BPM Solutions was created to provide back-office services that are tailored to a business’s professional needs. Aaron’s mission for BPM Solutions is to provide clients with accounting, human resources, financial reporting, and business consultation. Our goal is to help grow each client’s business and give the entrepreneur peace of mind.

In 2015, inspired by culture-conscious companies like Google, GoFundMe, Zappos, and USAA, Davis purchased Alexander Oaks Office Park and the land adjoining it. The development now includes over 40,000 sq. feet of light office commercial space, ample parking, and updated and well maintained amenities. In partnering with the Plant City Economic Development Corporation, Aaron’s hope for the development is to bring a relaxed, collaborative workspace to the area and help draw more businesses to the I-4 Corridor.
At 19 years old, Aaron bought his first home. He paid $32,000 for a 2 bedroom 1 bath 1000 Sq foot frame home. Aaron put $4,000 down and the owner financed the remainder at 10% interest. His payment was $300 per month. So what did Aaron do? He rented out 1 bedroom for $200 to his friend James, and rented out the couch for $150 to his friend Scott, creating a $50 per month cash flowing rental at age 19. Residential Real Estate investing was in his blood at that point, and to this day he holds numerous real estate investments in his personal portfolio.
