Our Services

Registered Agent :: Corporate Kits :: Real Estate Services :: Other Services

Advanced Corp Agents is the forerunner for Due Diligence and Real Estate Searching, Filing and Document Retrieval in Illinois, and with our network of hundreds of experienced professionals throughout the country, we offer the same personal service and exceptional results in all 50 states.

ACA has earned an outstanding reputation for providing thorough, accurate results. We make no compromises when it comes to quality work and we enjoy many client referrals as a result of the extra time and care that goes into every service we provide.

We perform onsite searches and double-check results using online databases whenever possible. We are one of the only search firms that use a dual-search methodology at the Cook County, Illinois Circuit Court to ensure thorough, accurate results. Ask your service provider if they perform dual-searching in Cook County, and if they don’t or they claim to have a "complete" database of their own, then you’re likely exposing yourself to more risk than you should, and you have one more reason to switch to ACA.

We provide clear, concise reports to answer all of your questions up front and we offer discounts for large projects and volume accounts.

We offer same day service in Cook County, our turn turn around time for Illinois Secretary of State service is within 24 hours, and in the collar counties of DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will, we provide results within 24 to 48 hours.

We carry E & O Insurance and take personal responsibility for the accuracy of our work as stated in our Client Bill of Rights.

We value your business and appreciate the opportunity to serve all of your nationwide service needs!
