Snippets From the Episode

  • "What else do our clients need from us? How else can we serve? Title insurance is a big part of it. You know, we're largely an acquisition and title-based company. That's the services we provide. And one thing that's unique in the alternative space, and particularly with some of the large utility-scale projects that we see, you know, the big solar fields, some of the battery storage sites, the wind projects - they all get a Title policy." - Brent Broussard
  • "Our goal and what we are shooting for and what, our primary, end game is when you get that title commitment back from Dudley Select title, not only is it addressing the needs in any situation you might have with your surface ownership, but it's also gonna incorporate, the mineral title review into that process." - Brent Broussard
  • "We're being conservative about how we approach growth here. You know, we wanna do that organically. We want to do that with good partners going forward. That doesn't mean don't call us and ask us if you've got a project wherever, but we do want to ensure that we are delivering the best service. And we wanna be able to control in terms of delivering that good product back to our owners. And being that partner with them throughout the full scale of the project." - Spencer Cearly
