Our Team

At Texoma Minerals, our primary objective is to identify the needs, frustrations, and financial goals of each mineral owner and family.  Where we can add value through one of these channels, we work to maximize what is attainable through our unique process. ​Our established team has access and relationships with a select number of long-term mineral holders who traditionally focus on multi-million dollar transactions with groups that aggregate and sell large portfolios.  These large groups have the technical expertise to pay top dollar in the space but do not have the teams on the ground buying directly from mineral owners. ​While brokers take deals to end buyers in hopes of exaggerated profits, Texoma Minerals works to provide a portion of those exaggerated values back to the mineral owner.  This allows for full transparency and alignment with families, ultimately providing the highest values in every transaction.

Our Mission
Texoma Minerals leads by faith and integrity, building relationships with families and helping them maximize their mineral and royalty interests.
