University Title



What began as a mom-and-pop shop of two has grown to be the largest title company in Brazos County – and since University Title joined forces with Alliant National in 2008, it has made some pretty major strides. It was selected as one of the Best Companies to Work For in Texas – and in the same year, Karen McCarroll (President of University Title) earned the Texas Land Title Association (TLTA)’s Professional Excellence Award. In addition, many University Title team members have earned their TLTA certifications over the past decade.

The year 2012 was an especially memorable one for the company as Celia Goode-Haddock, Chairman of the Board and CEO, was named TLTA Title Person of the Year while University Title won the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, and employee Kary Mersmann, CESA, was awarded the TLTA Professional Excellence Award.

Now a multi-million-dollar company with 60 team members and counting, University Title was recognized as Brazos Valley’s No. 1 Place to Work in 2014 and was also named the No. 2 Best Company to Work For in Texas in the small business category. Obviously, company culture and mutual respect are extremely important at University Title – and these are values that Celia recognizes at Alliant National.

“Alliant National does a good job of investing in people,” Celia says, “including at agent conferences and marketing seminars. More than just a business alliance, Alliant National builds relationships between its team and its agents.”

Relationships are at the core of what University Title does, and the company has become a firm fixture in its community. Celia herself tries hard to apply the Golden Rule – a value that she learned from her parents, who founded the company over 40 years ago.

In honor of its 40th anniversary, University Title raised and donated $80,000 to local charities affiliated with housing. It also invests in the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity by sponsoring and building houses, providing title work, closing Habitat houses and having employees volunteer on the Habitat board.
