Texas Abstracting Firm Designated as ‘Endorsed Partner’

July 19, 2011

San Antonio, Texas-based Hollerbach & Associates, an independent real estate services and title research firm, will continue on in its status as endorsed partner of the TBA Services Company Inc. (TBASCO), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Texas Bankers Association (TBA). This will be the firm’s seventh consecutive year with the designation. Hollerbach & Associates is the only abstracting and title research firm in Texas to be considered an endorsed partner of TBASCO.

A TBASCO endorsement requires completion of a lengthy investigative process, including review of financial statements and operations, by an eight-member board of directors, comprised of seven Texas bankers and the TBA president. The endorsement is intended to signal to TBA members that the partner has passed a rigorous testing process, and may be trusted by TBA members. TBASCO’s stated mission is to provide access to quality products and services for TBA member banks to enhance the members’ competitive standing.

“We have always found TBA and TBASCO to be valuable resources and partners,” said Jim Hollerbach, President & CEO of Hollerbach & Associates. “The real estate services industry in Texas is competitive, and our endorsed partner status is an honor that is not lightly awarded. We are proud to be designated as such.”
