About Us

The H. O. Smith Company has been a business in downtown Lexington, Nebraska since 1885. Current president Steve Smith, who is a licensed abstractor and title insurance agent, is the great-grandson of the company originator, Hanford Otis Smith. Title insurance and title reports make up 99% of the company business as abstracts are now mostly researched and updated for historical reasons only. The company serves Dawson, Gosper and Frontier counties in Nebraska.

Deb Stuchlik is a licensed title agent and provides escrow closing services for insured entities upon request. In August of 2011, Cameron Smith joined the company as the fifth generation of the business. He is also a licensed title insurance agent and enjoys working with his father as he learns the business. Jan Anderson works part time as administrative assistant and types final policies.

H. O. Smith is a progressive company with a state-wide reputation for accurate commitments, policies and reports and prompt and reliable service.
