Client Testimonials

“Norwood Land Services has been a pleasure to work with over the past four years. Their staff is very knowledgeable and was influential in Titan’s success on clearing title for our rooftop leases in Tarrant County. They worked for us in all areas of the Barnett Shale and were very effective obtaining leases, delivering runsheets and curing title as well as handling most of Titan’s surface issues. Norwood handles all aspects of land work, has an excellent mapping program and someone was always available to answer my call or email in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Norwood Land Services and hope to work with them again in the future.”
~ Lisa Morrow, Senior Landman, Legend Natural Gas, LLC

“When we need a project done we call Norwood. In working with their team for the last 8 years, we have come to count on their ability to take a task and provide results. Using Norwood allows our Land Department to delegate duties without the need for micro management.”
~ Butch Ford, COO, Veritas Energy, LLC

“Working closely with Norwood Land Services for several years on projects for our Texas clients I have always found them available for direct communication relating to their title research, mapping, and title curative services, which are always handled quickly and professionally. As a result of their assistance, the common or shared goal to establish marketable title for our client’s properties and assets is attained in the most efficient way possible. I have trusted Norwood Land Services and recommended them as they have proven to be professional, competent, and thorough in every aspect of their work.”
