About Us

About UsForeclosure Information & Listing Service, Inc. is family owned and operated and was established in 1963. It was the first such foreclosure reporting service in Texas.

The company's founder was an aspiring real estate agent who discovered that if he monitored the foreclosure notices posted in the county he would have an advantage in listing the HUD foreclosures. His friends and colleagues insisted that he should start a report of the foreclosure postings. Since it was so inconvenient for the public to physically go to the courthouse and review hundreds (and today thousands) of foreclosure notices he discovered that the demand for a comprehensive and user friendly format of the data could be readily satisfied in the form of what ultimately became Foreclosure Listing Service. The original owner and his wife began publishing the foreclosure list in Dallas with Houston to follow shortly in 1967.
