Realty Trust Services

Our responsibilities are to understand the processes involved in assisting our Muscogee (Creek) Clients in researching land records. Our office understands the relationship our clients may or may not have with their land. Our office is in clear understanding the information we work with is privileged and protected unless pursuant to 43 Code of Federal Regulations 2.56(b). We understand these records may not be altered or destroyed except as authorized by 43 Code of Federal Regulations 2.52(c).

Services

The objective of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Realty Trust Services Department is to provide recommendations and related services to individuals in the management of Indian Trust and Restricted Land situated within the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma.

The program consists of Trust-related services mandated by the various Federal Regulations and Laws governing the management of restricted and trust land. There are approximately 128,000 acres of restricted property owned by individual Tribal members in need of assistance managing and protecting their property rights. Our primary goal is to insure that clients do NOT lose their land as a result of any activity that can be prevented by providing proper assistance in the management of their restricted Indian land. An ancillary goal is to maximize the dollar value our clients receive in return for the use and sale of their restricted and trust land. Realty Trust Services also assists the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and its citizens in the transfer of land title to the United States of America in Trust, thus expanding the land base of the Nation and its citizens.
