About Us

Polk County Abstract has been serving buyers, sellers, lenders, and realtors in Polk County and Western Wisconsin for more than 100 years.

For decades, Polk County Abstract was owned by Chester L. Peterson and was THE real estate title company in Polk County, Wisconsin.  Chester passed the business to his nephew, Bryce Thomsen.  Bryce and his wife Suz continued the tradition of excellence until their retirement in 2003.  From 2003-2008, the company was owned by our underwriter, First American Title Insurance Company.  In 2008, the company returned to local ownership when it was purchased by Attorney Jim Casterton.   In 2015, Attorney Susan Lee became a co-owner of the company.   We are Polk County's only lawyer-owned, locally owned title company.
