Our family trust includes mineral rights for a property in Lea County NM that was registered decades ago and sat dormant until we were contacted by land men and companies interested in leasing. We accepted and personally managed a lease agreement that was not renewed after 6 years that did not result in drilling. In the past decade we received many letters from companies offering to purchase or lease the mineral rights but we were unsure of the value and real potential of our Lea County holding. We decided to seek expert advice and found Caple Royalty Services. Meeting Lee Caple and his team was the solution for understanding and planning, then soliciting and managing lease offers. Lee originally gave us an overview of our location and area drilling with candid advisement of potential, both pros and cons. He also kept us posted on market lease rates and royalty percentage fees letting us know best timing for new offers. Recently he sourced and managed competitive offers with great results for a new lease. We are very happy with Lee’s work and advice; he’s always been responsive, knowledgeable and professional. No doubt, our best decision was finding Caple as an industry expert.

My 2 sisters and I, who don't know squat about mineral rights and how to manage them, kept receiving unsolicited offers to purchase our mineral rights in Texas. After doing quite a bit of research and talking to different individuals who work in this field, we came upon Lee Caple and the services he provides. He has been so helpful in explaining all the ins and outs of this business and how things work. He is very knowledgeable about which companies are above board and ethical in their dealings. He was able to negotiate a higher price for us and a contract that was fair and more to our advantage. Lee made this whole process much easier to navigate, and Lord knows he answered hundreds of our questions with patience and professionalism. He is a delight to work with, and we will be using him down the road to help us sell some more of our properties.
- Melinda, Haynesville Play
We have had a very pleasant experience working with Lee. He has been very helpful & understanding of what we wanted to do. He has gone above and beyond to help us with our situation. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
- Brian & Kim, Permian Basin
Lee, I am so grateful for having you on my side through this complicated process of selling my working interest shares. I’m sure I couldn’t have done it at all, and certainly not as well without your diligence and knowledge of the industry, to take me far past my expectations in this sale. I trusted that you had the expertise, were resourceful and more than capable to handle this transaction, but you went way above that by seeing it all to the end - every step of the way, through every complication. I’m so appreciative to have had you leading the way.
- Kaye, Eddy County, NM
We really appreciate all your help on this - certainly for the increase in bonus and royalty - but also for your help with formulating a contract to cover all these details. It makes us feel so much better when we have a knowledgeable contact in this business.
- Don and Trudi, San Augustine County, Haynesville Play
Indeed it was a great outcome and a great pleasure to work with you. You did an outstanding job representing us. Not only did you get us a substantial increase in price but negotiated more favorable (lease) terms.
- David, Haynesville Play, Harrison County, TX
Thank you for your assistance in securing a buyer. We greatly appreciated your unique experience and expertise.

We just wanted to say a BIG thank you for all the help you have given us over the last seven years with my oil royalties. You have been patient, kind, and informative, and if it were not for your help, I would never have been able to secure the release of the suspended royalties. I would always recommend your company. Thank you for everything you have done.

We had a very pleasant experience selling our mineral interests in Texas with Lee Caple. I truly believe he brokered the best deal possible for us and he completed the sale with ease. I only wish we had known Lee earlier when we were negotiating leases and sales on our own. I definitely would recommend his services to others.
— Mary, Upton County, Texas
Like many who inherit mineral rights, I knew very little about them or their value. I was overwhelmed with unsolicited offers to buy my mineral rights at a wide range of prices. When I did decide to sell, I wanted some expert advice, and an internet search led me to Caple Royalty Services. Lee Caple took all the time needed to help me understand how the process worked. Every step of the process played out exactly as he said it would. I was able to sell a portion of my mineral rights at approximately double the amount per acre of the highest offers I had received in the mail. I will be calling Lee for all my needs related to my remaining mineral rights in the future.
— Paul, Pecos County, Texas

Although the offers were relatively competitive, Caple Royalty Services proved to be the best organized and prepared to move quickly throughout a very complicated process. They established themselves as both capable and honest in their representations and were a pleasure to work with.
— Douglas H., Loving County, TX
Caple Royalty Services helped our family navigate a once in a lifetime decision. Offer letters to buy our mineral rights kept rising. We wanted to sell but had ZERO expertise to evaluate the offers, so we decided to hire Caple Royalty Services to run an auction to let the market determine the price. I am happy to report that the high bid was 60% over the highest offer letter that we had received. We accepted the high bid and the transaction was very smooth. Lee and his staff were very easy to work with and we never felt any pressure to do one thing or another. Highly recommended.
— David, Reeves County, TX

— Barry L., Custer County, OK
Lee Caple and Caple Royalty Services successfully sold my mineral rights. I felt he got the most fair price and worked hard for my best interest. He kept me informed with each step of the process. Lee went over and beyond in his research, with what little information of genealogy that I had to share with him regarding the minerals. It took only a short time for Lee to sell all my mineral rights. In today's world, it is hard to find a trustworthy man and company. Lee and Caple Royalty Services are all that and more. Lee is confident, knowledgeable, and honest in his business dealings. I would not hesitate contacting Lee with my business dealings again and I would for sure recommend him. Lee is a true Godly man. Thank you Lee Caple and Caple Royalty Services for helping me in so many valuable ways.

From the time I first met Lee, I felt very reassured that we had made the right choice in retaining Caple Royalty Services to assist us with the sale of our oil & gas properties. Lee was very professional, and I could tell he had a wealth of knowledge, experience, and an extensive client base in which to solicit offers. He was never hard to reach and was always very quick to return calls and answer questions. He really stepped up when it came time to facilitate a complex set of documents between us and the buyer. We will always give our highest endorsement to Lee Caple and his staff to anyone requiring assistance with marketing their oil & gas properties.
— Robert Weaver, President of Cassidy Oil & Royalty
Mr. Caple negotiated a gas/oil lease for me. I felt his commission was a good investment since I am inexperienced in this field. Without his professional due diligence I would never have known if I was leaving money on the table.
— John, Cimarron County, OK
I appreciated your responsiveness during this whole process. Learning what we needed to supply rapidly was a great enabler of our successful sale. I also feel like you got us a very fair price.
— Roger, Reeves County, TX
I am a land owner in southern Gonzales County and have been watching the activity by the petroleum industry in the Eagle Ford Shale for the last several years. The reality had occurred to me and my family that a drilling company may never actually produce a well on our property even though the potential for oil and gas production in the region is very high. There was a certain element of terror associated with the thought of selling some of my royalty interests. As the good Lord has given me the privilege of owning a ranch that has been in our family for many generations, I needed to avoid the feeling that I could never gather enough accurate information concerning the Eagle Ford to make a responsible decision about selling my royalty interests in the estate. I was introduced to Lee Caple of Caple Royalties by my financial advisors and was overjoyed with the prospect of having an independent petroleum professional guide me through the process of selling some of my royalty interests. Mr. Caple and his staff helped me to understand the value of my royalties and the wisdom of selling off some of these interests in an effort to minimize some tax consequences and preserve capital. I am not sure that the petroleum industry really understands what is happening in the Eagle Ford but Lee Caple certainly does. I had huge misgivings concerning selling some of my royalty interests but these doubts were swept away by the professional advice and wisdom shared with me by Lee. He was there to walk me through the steps necessary to avoid making mistakes along the way.
— Jeff, Eagle Ford Play
Steve, you have been a pleasure to work with. Thanks for all your help, and hopefully, we’ll do business again in three years.

— Glenda, East Texas
Thank you so much for your services! Your expertise was invaluable in the sale of my mother's gas rights. My husband is a consultant in agriculture, and I knew the right thing to do was to find a consultant in this field. Lee was very thorough, knowledgeable, and professional! He explained every step so I felt at ease during the entire sale process. I will surely recommend Caple Royalty to everyone who needs assistance in selling their mineral or gas rights.
— Cindy V., Dos Palos, CA
I am most pleased with and appreciate the research and presentation of the appraisal I received.

Lee Caple and the Caple Royalty Services Team are AWESOME. Most of our family lives outside of Texas yet we have property in Anderson County and we had offers for an oil and gas lease; we knew very little to nothing and we needed someone who knows the business in Texas and had experience with negotiating. We are so happy and grateful to have found Caple Royalty Services to represent us; they are knowledgeable, experienced, professional and patient and negotiated a much better contract than we could have gotten on our own. We highly recommend Caple Royalty Services for anyone who needs an advocate concerning oil and gas leasing. Thank you, Caple Royalty Services.
— Will, Houston, TX

— Mary Anne, Baton Rouge, LA
I am grateful to Lee Caple for assisting me in my negotiation for some newly found mineral interests that I inherited. Lee's background in the oil and gas industry was very helpful in explaining to me the fair market value of the amount of royalty interest I should ask for in negotiating the new lease. He was also able to discover parts of the lease that were harmful to my legal interests. As a result of his knowledge and attention to detail, I have a great lease that fully represents my best interests!
— JPB, Ft. Worth, TX
Thank you, Caple Royalty for the professional manner in which you provided our family with the successful leasing of our property. You kept us informed. You explained clearly and concisely the decisions to be made in terms lay people could understand. You worked in a patient and sensitive manner with our complex family concerns and brought this project to a productive and timely conclusion, which pleased all.
— FH, Panola County, TX
I recently received an offer to lease acreage in Milam County, Texas, for oil and gas exploration and drilling. The offer seemed reasonable enough, but to be on the safe side I asked Caple Royalty Services to serve as agent in the discussions. After considering the initial offer, Caple Royalty contacted other parties that might have interests in the area. The result: Caple Royalty negotiated a contract that was twice the value of the original offer. Further, Caple Royalty set up a meeting at a local bank so that all financial transactions and agreements could be made with absolutely no inconveniences to me. I am delighted with my service and with the professionalism of Caple Royalty Services.
— CR, Milam County, TX
With Lee Caple's experience in the business of buying and selling oil royalties, he was able to advise me that my royalties were more valuable than I had been led to think they were. Although the market is volatile, Mr. Caple and I were both pleased that my royalties brought an even higher auction price than we hoped to receive.
— YH, Jefferson Parish, LA
I really appreciate the honesty. In this day and time, it's nice to know there are people who still have your best interest in mind.
— H.H., Karnes County, TX
Recently I had the pleasure of working with Lee in a sale of property. I found Lee not only very professional, but extremely easy to speak to. He made some matters that seemed complex, much easier to understand and hence deal with. The efficiency of his work also allowed for ease and quickness of resolution.
— James, Reseda, CA
Lee Caple has just concluded his representation of us on a complex mineral and land sale in West Texas. Lee needed to address 3 independent parties on the sell side that required skillful handling of individual concerns. Lee demonstrated professionalism and insight with the buyer, advising and executing multiple offer and counter offer actions. The result was an extraordinary smooth and timely sale where all parties were pleased with the final product. I am willing to speak directly with interested parties and I am authorizing Lee to provide contact information as needed.
