We are owned and operated by active ranchers.
We understand the special needs inherent to remote, rural and ranch property title transfers.
Whether land, mineral, solar, wind, water, game, hunting, or other special provisions,
We designed and trained our teams to serve you.
Garner Abstract & Land Co. was established in 1891 as one of the first businesses in Uvalde, Texas.
Our base plant is the only sovereign Uvalde County title plant, and we have an extensive historical file base that is kept up-to-date. With the name legacy of original owner - former United States Vice-President John Nance Garner - our business and its working team takes leadership responsibility in our community and industry seriously and we strive to be the best we can be in all facets - both in office and out.
Owner John Dodson purchased Garner Abstract & Land Co. in December 2015 in order to start building a network of title operations to serve families and businesses throughout the great State of Texas. Raised as a rancher and educated as a lawyer - our Owner and Examiner loves the land - Serving our clients in land transactions is a combination of his skill and passion.
Confidentiality and Professionalism - delivered with country charm and using today’s best modern technologies.
Our roots in ranching agriculture combined with legal background in real estate transactions provide a unique expertise in large land sales - and our personable and discreet team ensures sensitive transactions remain efficient and professional.
Farms, ranches, and land development are our strength. As larger parcels are divided and sold, and construction loans build dream homes - we build and implement base files for more accurate, efficient, and unique transactions.
As the title insurance industry expands to be more fluid across county lines, we are aligning with key contacts to service transactions without boundaries. We daily look for ways on how we can improve to best meet the needs of our clients while aligning with our commitment to create a positive memorable experience with each transaction. Having an in-house owner attorney team to handle our title exams allows for more direct communication with other settlement attorneys when and if the need arises to address title objections and curative issues.
We enjoy serving our clients as they live the American Dream of owning land!
Owner. Attorney. Examiner.
