    "I can personally attest to the relationships First National Title Insurance are building. As a new title company in Texas, I had no idea what to expect. My experience is this team is willing to go the extra mile to take care of the independent agent. Chris, the team I was paired with, Geri Hosterman, Chance Perkins, April Roberts, Jamie Barker, and George Stablein, were absolutely top notch and we truly appreciate this partnership. We look forward to working alongside you and this awesome team."

  • Charlene Burk
    "I can still remember the day that our friends Chris Phillips and D.J. Horn stopped by for a visit, and to tell us about their new “adventure.” There was a new title insurance underwriter coming to Texas and they wanted CentraLand to sign up as an Agent. There was no hesitation on our part, and we haven’t regretted that decision one single day since! Building relationships is a key part of our business, and the strong, committed relationship we have built with First National is rock solid. The underwriting team is accessible, knowledgeable and committed to assisting us whenever and however they can. The leadership team treats us like family and supports us on so many levels on a regular basis. As an independent title agent, I find that First National Title Insurance Company is our “go-to” underwriter time and time again. It truly feels like a partnership and we are grateful for the opportunity to be part of the First National family."
