He started out representing lenders making commercial loans for acquisition, development and construction. Later Barry represented developers of office buildings, shopping centers, apartments and condominiums. After working in-house for one of his clients, Barry established his own law practice to represent individuals and small businesses in real estate leasing and acquisitions. In 2016 Barry moved into the title insurance business in his hometown of Lubbock, but after a year he realized that he much preferred commercial sales, purchases and refinancing and returned to Dallas and Capital Title.

He received both his BBA degree (with highest honors) and his Doctor of Jurisprudence (with honors) from the University of Texas in Austin. He has been a member of the State Bar of Texas since 1981.

Barry is known for being responsive and persistent, as well as for his ability to analyze and cut through real estate legal issues to find solutions for his clients.

What Barry likes most about being an escrow officer is the cooperative effort that is required of all parties involved to get a transaction closed. He feels that his career in real estate law has given him the opportunity, “to meet a bunch of smart, nice people.”

When not working, Barry and his wife enjoy traveling to new places, especially historic sites, and music. Barry’s father had a chain of records stores in the 60s through the 80s and Barry worked there while he was in high school and college. He also enjoys playing golf.

Brandi Wheeler

VP Commercial Services / Escrow Officer / Branch Manager

Dripping Springs

A second generation title employee, Brandi called Burnet, TX home during her adolescent and teenager years. As fate would have it, her mother worked in the industry as an Escrow Officer, which allowed Brandi to be taught the industry ropes from the inside out, day in and day out, for the first 17 years of her life. Shortly after graduating from High School, Brandi made the move to Austin to begin not only college, but what has turned out to be an extremely successful 24+ year career. She has worked in title production, training/onboarding and compliance departments. Additionally, four decades in the industry has humbly enabled Brandi to amass an immense amount of invaluable contacts and resources, the ability to think and act quickly on her feet, and the confidence to be the “calm in the storm” in the face of adversity during a transaction.

Brandi is considered to be an industry “expert” in both residential and commercial real estate respectively, where she has closed over $1,000,000,000 worth of real estate throughout her time as an Escrow Officer. Despite all of her success and accomplishments, Brandi recognizes that her formula of success revolves around her passion to “champion” customer service, operational excellence, and relationship building – three philosophies that are not only preached but practiced by her to this day. Throughout her tenured career, she has repeatedly shown the innate ability to build and foster a culture of excellence, trust, and “family” throughout her team, which has also enabled her to build a strong, loyal book of business across the state. She carries an infectious, dynamic personality with her at all times, and is as genuine and down to earth as they come – what you see is what you get!

Brandi is unique in that she is adaptable to her clients and the ever changing business trends of the real estate industry. Her dedication to her clients starts before a transaction is consummated and extends well after the closing. She understands her clients’ industries, anticipates their needs, and has a “do whatever it takes” approach to deliver an accurate and timely transaction to all parties involved. Communication, timely responsiveness, and accessibility are intricate parts of her process to deliver great customer service.

During downtime away from the office, Brandi cherishes the moments when she works in her garden at home and is able to play with, and watch, her two boys and husband practice and compete in their respective sports.
