National Title & Escrow Expands in Missouri

December 8, 2020

Missouri-based National Title & Escrow has acquired Mississippi County Abstract & Loan Company in Charleston, Mo.

The office becomes National Title’s fourth location. In addition to Dexter and Charleston, National Title also has offices in New Madrid and Little Rock, Ark.

The purchase also includes Mississippi County’s only title plant, an important detail according to Jake Nesselrodt, National Title & Escrow’s director of operations. Mississippi County Abstract & Loan Company was established in 1909.

“In this case, we were notified that the long-time owner of Mississippi County Abstract was looking to sell,” Nesselrodt said. “There is a lot of history in that office, and the entire National Title team is excited about the potential relationships with Realtors and Lenders in this great community. All of us are ready to put our expertise, resources and technology to work for our new customers.”

Mississippi County Abstract President Hazel Williams, who had owned the company since 1974, said she is sure National Title will continue to deliver for her loyal customers. Williams’ daughter, Becky Hearns, who worked in the office for almost 40 years herself, has been working with Nesselrodt during the last few weeks to help ensure a smooth transition.

“The business and the residents of Mississippi County are in good hands with Jake and National Title & Escrow,” Williams said. “I’m confident they will give the residents of this county the same prompt and accurate service our clients have come to expect from us over the years, and I wish them well.”
