When Brad Elder, CEO of Select Title first entertained the idea of building a new beginning for the agency, he envisioned pulling together some of the best and brightest minds in the industry. Seeking some of the top producers within the Houston market to form an alliance—a “dream team” of people sharing a common vision and passion for serving the real estate industry throughout the Lone Star State. With many exciting milestones ahead, Select Title is well on it’s way to becoming the best title agency in Texas.
