Nebraska Land Title and Abstract (NLTA), under leadership of longtime employee and recently named General Manager Susan LaDuke, would like to welcome several new hires.

LaDuke joined what was then Capitol Title in 1995, and most recently the senior title manager of the commercial department. In her new position LaDuke will be taking on the day-to-day responsibility of running NLTA.

NLTA has named Judy Farmer as Title Productions Operations Manager in its Lincoln office. Farmer has more than 30 years experience in the title insurance business, having started as an abstracter and legal secretary in Nebraska City. She managed a title company there before moving to Lincoln 11 years ago to work as senior title examiner for another company. Farmer holds an associate’s degree in court reporting from Lincoln School of Commerce (now Kaplan University), and she served as deputy clerk of the Otoe County District Court for six years. Farmer has been a registered abstracter and licensed title insurance agent since 1989. She was appointed to the Nebraska Abstracters Board of Examiners in 2010 and also serves on the Nebraska Land Title Association’s legislative committee.

Farmer replaces Sheila Tracy, who has been promoted to Commercial Closing and Title Manager, LaDuke’s previous position. Tracy has more than 25 years of experience in the title industry starting in California in 1986. She has been with NLTA since March 2002 and was the Senior Commercial and Residential searcher for 11 years. Most recently Tracy served for the last year and a half as Residential Title Production Manager.

Marilyn Wimer rejoins NLTA as an Escrow Officer. She has more than 40 years of experience as an escrow officer, closing department manager and in marketing and business development. Wimer is the current president of the Nebraska Escrow Association, is a longtime active member of the REALTOR’s Association of Lincoln, and has been a licensed title agent since 1992. A former employee of Capitol Title (now NLTA) and a well-respected local escrow closer, LaDuke and her team are pleased to have Wimer back with the NLTA family.

NLTA has named Harleena Vocasek to the Construction Disbursing Clerk position. She has previously served as a mortgage loan assistant, a mortgage loan processor and an accountant at Perry Reid Properties, so she is no stranger to the real estate transaction. Vocasek holds an Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Administration from Southeast Community College, is a Girl Scout leader and also a TeamMate mentor.

Barb McClellan has been promoted to Commercial Title Assistant. McClellan has worked in the title industry in Lincoln for 16 years. She started as a file clerk, then a receptionist, a customer service representative, a commitment typist, and most recently a title researcher. McClellan has also been with NLTA since 2002.

Nebraska Land Title and Abstract is a wholly owned subsidiary of HomeServices of America, Inc., and a full-service title insurance and escrow closing operation (agricultural, residential and commercial) serving the entire State of Nebraska. Founded in 1981 by its predecessor, Capitol Title, NLTA prides itself on providing customers with unparalleled service by title agents and escrow closing professionals who carry some of the most extensive knowledge and expertise in the industry.
