Bellatorum is the plural form of the latin root word, Bellator, which means noble warrior or
valorous soldier. This word is more than a reminder of our military service. It’s about an ethos of respect, discipline, professionalism, and dedication. In ancient times, professional soldiers were expected to treat everyone with respect, whether it be their enemies, brothers in arms, superiors, or those they were sworn to protect. Bellatorum Resources operates with this same ethos in business. This isn’t just lip service. Our founders and several of our team members have lived by this code of ethics during their military service; therefore, it permeates our company culture. Thus, landowners can expect superior customer service, transparency, and timeliness when doing business with Bellatorum. Whether it involves sharing title findings, explaining valuation methods, or just being willing to meet face to face, Bellatorum always accommodates the needs and expectations of land and mineral owners.
We look forward to doing business together.


Our founders and team members believe integrity is the key virtue necessary to not only running a successful business, but also to living a quality life. Within this sometimes aggressive industry, Bellatorum Resources sets itself apart by operating with an unparalleled level of honesty and transparency. If you don’t believe us, just ask any of the mineral owners we’ve done business with in the past. They are willing to vouch for our honesty and integrity.


To Bellatorum, professionalism consists of a multitude of traits: work ethic, respect, customer service, discipline, timeliness, attention to detail, and courtesy. When you work with Bellatorum, you deal with people who understand and value the importance of doing business in a highly professional manner. You won’t find another group of mineral and royalty buyers out there operating with such an exceptional level of professionalism.


Our team is committed to excellence. Our team consists of highly ambitious individuals who take pride in the quality of their work and their character. We believe that mediocrity and careless business practices are becoming the norm in our society, and we strive to correct that trend by setting the example. We go above and beyond in everything we do to achieve excellence and leave a lasting impression with the families and businesses with whom we interact.
