Security 1st Title Receives Small Business Award
Wednesday, March 16, 2022
In 1989, Charles Brown and Wayne Colburn purchased Reno County Abstract & Title from the Hartke family. Charle’s son, Todd Brown, started working the business in 1990, and grew the business until 2015 when it was purchased by Security 1st Title. Today, Todd Brown and Nikki Hutton manage the local team in Reno County and have expanded the business to what it is today.
Security 1st Title offers title insurance and real estate closing services for residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural transactions, as well as purchases and refinances, new construction, relocation, foreclosure, short sales, escrow contract serving, and 1031 exchanges. With a unique position in the real estate market, Reno County is consistently one of the top three to five counties in the state for real estate closings. To serve the high-producing area, Security 1st Title offers licensed and trained professionals to assist with all their customer’s title and closing needs. Their local and experienced staff delivers exceptional service to protect property rights of homeowners and lenders.
Over the past couple of years, the task of operating a business has been a challenge for everyone. Between COIVD-19 challenges, staying alert to cyber fraud, and maintaining a high level of customer service in an unprecedented busy real estate market, maintaining their team’s health and safety has been their top priority. They are fortunate that their team works as a family, with everyone stepping up to go above and beyond to take care of their customers and each other. Because of their effort to build relationships in their work and throughout the community, they have a uniquely strong team.
Knowing the importance of giving back to the community, Security 1st Title is a supporter of many community events and organizations including the TECH Gala, Interfaith Housing, Hospice of Reno County, United Way of Reno County, Prairie Land Board of Relators, and Hutchinson Land Bank.
At Security 1st Title their team continuously works to support and improve all areas of our community, including helping people obtain their dreams of homeownership and protecting their property rights. They don’t just want their employees to go the extra mile for their customers, they want them to go the extra inch. That inch is the little things people remember, as it’s not what you do, but how you make people feel.
Thank you, Todd & Nikki, for all you do for our community.
