Our industry has undergone great changes and the use of “ratings” has become a necessity for acceptability and marketability. Alamo far exceeds the minimum acceptable ratings required by the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA). Below is a description of the various ratings we have received.
One of the most prestigious and respected rating companies Duff & Phelps Credit Rating Co. (DCR) has assigned Alamo an “A” rating.
Demotech, Inc., one of the first companies to rate title insurance underwriters, has consistently assigned Alamo an A’ Prime/Unsurpassed rating since its formation. Once again this is the highest rating given to a regional company.
Lace Financial groups companies into peer groups based on asset size. In its peer group ($25 Million to $100 Million) Alamo has enjoyed its A+ rating since 1993, longer than any other company so rated.
We are the fifth largest title insurance underwriter in the state of Texas, and according to Standard and Poor’s, we are the ninth largest title underwriter in the United States in terms of premium volume.

The recorded history of insurance law in Texas and the predecessors of the Texas Department of Insurance date back to 1876 — the year Mark Twain published “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and Colorado became the 38th state. The constitution of Texas adopted that year authorized the Legislature to create the office of Insurance Commissioner when it deemed it necessary. Two years earlier, the state had made its first effort to regulate the insurance business in Texas. The state’s economy and population were growing, and wildcat insurance schemes were common. The 14th Legislature in 1874 passed a law regulating the life and health insurance business in the areas of company formation, activities and coverage.
TREC protects consumers through programs of education, licensing and industry regulation. It is the state agency responsible for licensing real estate professionals in Texas.
