Associate's Spotlight: Capital Title
“Nationally Respected – Texas Friendly”
Owned by Bill Shaddock and headquartered in Plano Texas, Capital Title of Texas is the now largest independent title company in the United States. Shaddock began his career in the title business in 1987 as a fee attorney, essentially working from a single office as a one-man title closing operation. Over the following fifteen years, this network grew to 25 offices operating as American Title in Dallas, Commonwealth Title in Fort Worth and First American Title in Houston. In 2006, Shaddock integrated his existing fee office network into his then newly purchased Capital Title of Texas which has since grown to 85 branch offices located in and around the metroplexes of Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and South Texas.
Capital Title of Texas has earned a reputation for trustworthy residential and commercial title services that have successfully helped serve lenders, developers, and investors and has helped build strong and lasting relationships with the local communities. The company’s business is based on a strong set of values and ideals, which help to guide team members towards their goal of delivering excellence to each of their customers, which includes leading residential and commercial real estate professionals, both locally and statewide. Capital Title’s closing teams represent some of the most experienced and reliable residential and commercial escrow officers in the title industry and today they are able to assist more than a thousand people a month to realize their dream of homeownership.
Capital Title of Texas prides itself on being a different and distinctive company that does not try to imitate any other business within or outside the industry and strives to ensure that every member of their team reflects a positive attitude when interacting with each other and with their clients. They are committed to proving that their people’s and the company’s time-honored values are more important than corporate profits and that the ultimate success of the team is more important than any one individual within that team. Capital Title is also committed to the personal and professional development of every member of the company and strives to provide each team member with the tools and resources they need to be successful and able to deliver excellence to their customers.
Capital Title of Texas is proud to be a Texas owned business with a Texas-based workforce and strives to make significant differences in the local communities they serve. This is important because the monies they generate then remain in the community. Because the company is privately held there are no shareholders to appease and thus the focus can be directed toward employee and client satisfaction. Should questions arise, either leadership is on hand to assist with answers or they are no further than a phone call away. Capital Title has real strength in terms of its relationships with five major underwriting firms, which allow them great flexibility toward making closings work.
There are a number of resources available to REALTORS® on the local Capital Title website Http://www.ctot.com/SanAntonio.html which include a wealth of information about Closings in general, Local Area facilities and Schools, City Profiles, CE Training available and offers a series of useful calculators. There is also a Real Estate Title App “CapApp” to help with the calculations for title premium rates, buyer cost estimates, mortgage payments, and seller net estimates.
