Capital Title is the Largest Independent Title Company in the United States. It provides its statewide customers with over 100 branch offices serving the Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Rio Grande Valley, Northeast Texas, West Texas, Coastal Bend Golden Triangle, Central Texas and South Texas metroplexes. 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 and integrated his existing fee office network into the new company.

The closing teams at Capital Title represent some of the most experienced and reliable residential and commercial escrow officers in the title industry, assisting 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 founded First National Title Insurance Company, which has grown to become the 9th Largest Title Insurance Underwriter in the United States.

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