Tracy McMahon is a highly accomplished attorney and escrow officer who is extremely experienced and knowledgeable in the title industry. Her ability to "think outside the box" and problem solve converts "challenges" into "closings"!

As a 1991 graduate of Central Missouri State University, Tracy moved to Texas when she was recruited to work in the Oil & Gas industry in the Environmental, Safety and Health Department. In 1997 she graduated 4th in her class from Wesleyan School of Law where she was a member of the Law Review, and had published an article in the Texas Wesleyan Law Review. Admitted to the State Bar in 1998, Tracy is a member of both the Tarrant County Bar Association and TLTA.

Before accepting her current position with Capital Title, Tracy was an attorney with Waddell & Waddell, Inc., practicing civil litigation. In 1999, she became a fee attorney for American Title Company, which later became known as LandAmerica American Title. She also continued a general law practice. In 2004, Tracy began concentrating her efforts in the title industry on reverse mortgages. At their peak she grew her business to approximately 120 closings per month in one office, while continuing to close commercial and additional residential transactions. In May 2009, she moved her fee office relationship to Capital Title. Her general law practice focuses on real estate curative matters, business entity formation, Landlord/Tenant, Probate and Guardianship. She is a frequent speaker on real estate topics at various real estate organizations in the DFW Metroplex.

Tracy is married to Kieran McMahon, Branch Manager for Willow Bend Mortgage in Colleyville. The couple have three children.
