Chief Operations Officer

Tracy McMahon “Tracy” grew up in Independence, Missouri. After completing her Bachelors in Science from Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, Tracy took a position with Delhi Gas Pipeline (Delhi) in Dallas with a company she had interned with the prior summer. She was a member of Delhi’s Regulatory Department working with DOT, OSHA, RRC, EPA compliance as well as Phase 1 and 2 Environmental Assessments and Eminent Domain matters. Tracy worked full-time while attending law school. She graduated from Texas Wesleyan School of Law, now known as Texas A&M School of Law, December 1991 and passed the State Bar of Texas in May 1992.

Tracy and her two children, Bailey and Drew, live in Frisco, Texas. Tracy was a fee attorney for American Title Company, later known as LandAmerica American Title, from 1998 until 2008 when she moved her fee relationship to Capital Title of Texas, LLC. Tracy was seeking a variety of underwriting options, broad county coverage and little interference from “corporate.” Tracy began closing transactions in 1998. Her business consisted of a wide variety of commercial, new construction, residential resale, and loan transactions.

Bill Shaddock asked Tracy to begin running Operations for Capital Title beginning October 2011. She is the Chief Operations Officer (“COO”) for Capital Title and a partner in Shaddock Law & Associates. While she has been with Capital Title, the company has grown from 24 to over 100 offices which cumulatively close approximately 35,000 transactions per year. She has restructured or fully created new support departments and positions to maximize the core operations support for the Company. Under Tracy’s leadership, Capital Title has grown to include the addition of arguably the best Policy Department in the State of Texas, and maybe in the industry. Capital Title has also experienced significant growth in the Escrow Accounting Department, which is as strong as anyone’s and is continuing to improve processes. Tracy has developed legal support, with the addition of attorneys in key support roles, for the Capital Title staff, as well as their clients and customers. She has worked with Title Operations to help build a 34 licensed county plant that turns 200+ orders daily. Tracy provides legal support and closer support personally to the staff of Capital Title.

Tracy seeks practical application and business-sense decisions, considering risk assessment and underwriting positions on specific transactions. Her gift is in problem-solving, which pairs perfectly with her goal to get her closers to the closing table. She has the resources in place to provide the greatest amount of support to closers, new and existing.

Tracy is a TREC CE Certified Instructor, serves as a Trustee on the TLTA PAC Board, is a member of the TLTA Regulatory Committee, a licensed escrow officer with the Department of Insurance, and a licensed attorney with the State Bar of Texas.
