Lone Star Title Expands Texas Footprint With Acquisition

January 16, 2024

Lone Star Title Company of El Paso acquired Hale County Abstract & Title Co. LP.

Lone Star Title assumed all assets, including Hale County Abstract’s abstract plants, title agency operations and examination services in six counties in the Texas Panhandle region, which includes Bailey, Briscoe, Castro, Hale, Lamb and Swisher counties.

Headquartered in Plainview, Texas and having occupied the same office building for well over 100 years, Hale County Abstract traces its roots back to before 1900.

Former company president, Luke M. Martin and his colleague Chris Corbet have joined the Lone Star Title team and will work from one of four El Paso offices. Corbet will work in the title examination area of the company, and Martin will continue to administer escrow functions and manage a growing number of associates at Lone Star Title.

“We are thrilled about this opportunity to join the Lone Star Title flagship of companies and to carry our knowledge and experiences forward to continue serving the growing title examination needs of our industry in west Texas and the panhandle areas of Texas,” Martin said.
