Polk County Abstract’s roots date back to when it was originally established as Garvey Abstract in the basement of the Polk County courthouse. Today, the company is a sovereign plant, with title records, still on site, dating back to land grants issued early in Polk County’s history.


Since that time, the company has gone through several names, owners, and locations.  It became a wholly-owned subsidiary of First National Bank of Livingston in 2000. In 2007, the Bank purchased Livingston Abstract to expand the resources and better serve customers’ needs. 


In 2010, Ron and Kathy Boyce purchased the firm from First National and changed the name to Polk County Abstract, Inc. Ron had worked with the company for 10 years before the purchase and had a long history in forestry, oil and gas leasing, and real estate title. Son, Andrew Boyce and his wife Dakota also work in the family business.


With its comprehensive title plant, the latest technology to quickly access the massive data banks, and a team of experienced real estate professionals, Polk County Abstract is the logical choice to finalize responsive, accurate, and efficient real estate transactions.

" We have a deep heritage of quality, diligent service in Polk County. Having operated for so long in one location, the intellectual and data capital we hold at Polk County Abstract often smooths the way for even the most complex real estate transactions."  - Kathy Boyce
