Stewart Title’s Commercial Business Officer Wins Texas Senate Seat

March 3, 2015

 Jose Menendez, a commercial services business development officer for Stewart Title, was recently elected to the Texas Senate by defeating Trey Martinez Fischer in a runoff election.

Menendez, who will represent district 26. was formerly a representative in the Texas House. He succeeds former Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, who stepped down to run for mayor of San Antonio.

With over 10 years of experience in the title industry, Menendez serves in the role of vice president and business development officer for Stewart. Previously, he served as Stewart’s national director for multi-cultural markets and as a commercial sales representative for Stewart Title of San Antonio.

His career began in residential real estate sales in Dallas, where Menendez specialized in working with Hispanic homebuyers, helping them improve their credit ratings to qualify for mortgage loans. As the son of immigrant parents, he is keenly aware of the challenges faced by many in immigrant and minority communities on the road to real estate ownership.

A former national board member of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP), he now focuses on the commercial real estate market.
