Capital Title of Texas is the largest independently owned title company in Texas, with title plants serving 32 counties across the state. Capital Title’s corporate office, located in Plano, Texas, is directed by the company’s Owner & CEO, Bill Shaddock. 

Shaddock started in the title business in 1987 as a fee attorney for Dallas Title, which was then the largest independent title company in Dallas. Serving as a one man operation, Bill filled all the different roles involved in the closing process himself while working from a single office.

Over the next 15 years, Shaddock grew and expanded his operation into the largest fee office network in the state with 25 offices in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston areas. This network operated as American Title in Dallas, Commonwealth Title in Fort Worth, and First American Title in Houston.

In 2006, Shaddock purchased Capital Title of Texas and integrated his existing fee office network into the new company. Since that time, Capital Title has grown and prospered and now serves its statewide customers with over 65 branch offices serving the Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio metroplexes.

Today, the closing teams of Capital Title represent some of the most experienced and reliable residential and commercial escrow officers in the title industry. We assist over a thousand people a month in realizing their dream of home ownership. We count as our customers leading residential and commercial real estate professionals locally, statewide and nationally.

Most recently, Shaddock has founded First National Title Insurance Company, a #13 nationally ranked underwriter.

Capital Title today bases its business philosophy on a strong set of values and ideals, which help to guide team members towards our goal of delivering excellence to each of our customers.
