BOULDER — California-based First American Financial Corp. (NYSE: FAF) has purchased the assets of 1031 Solutions LLC, a Boulder company.

FAF provides title, settlement and risk solutions for real estate transactions. 1031 Solutions is a 1031 exchange company that provides intermediary services for real estate exchanges, including reverse and improvement exchanges, to attorneys, tax advisers, real estate professionals and investors. All of 1031 Solutions’ capabilities will now be positioned under the First American Exchange Co. brand, according to a press statement from FAF.
