Jennifer Barnes, you are unbelievable.  I am amazed by how calm you always are despite all that I ask of you.  Your team is the model team.  Escrow is a big part of our transactions, yet the easiest, when I reach out to all of you.  Thank you for taking that load of my shoulders.

Karyn Dillon is the best of the best and always my #1 choice for Escrow.  We have never been able to find another Escrow Officer who even comes close to the service and professionalism Karyn provides.  We want our clients to be in the best hands, especially when it comes to the biggest transaction they are going to make in their lives.  Karyn constantly goes above and beyond for all of our clients, and for us as agents.  She never hesitates to take on challenging transactions, and she is always available when our clients need her.  We use her EVERY time we can!

Tanya Gabriella & Glenn Holtz, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties

We have worked through many difficult transactions together, and I am confident that Karyn’s strong customer service skills and peace of mind have helped facilitate many deals.  I am proud to call her a part of our team!

Theresa Carlini - It may seem strange to thank someone for doing his or her job, but it seems like my new home almost didn’t happen because people were ‘dialing in’ their time at work. Not so with you! I feel you went above and beyond the call of duty – watching out for me, giving me advice, doing your best to make it happen. Thank you so much!

Shuriu Lo, Buyer

Kelly Pacheco – We just want to take this time to tell you how much we appreciate everything that you and your staff does! You go above and beyond to make sure that everything is being taken care of in a prompt and courteous manner. You and your staff have taken great care of our clients and us for the past 12 years, and we really appreciate it! You are the best, and we wouldn’t use anyone else. Thank you for all that you do!

"Stephanie Wolf - Thank YOU and your wonderful team! To work with you all is such a joyful experience in a not-always-so-joyful business. You guys take the brunt of so much and are always cheerful, helpful, and go far beyond the extra mile to assist me as well as my clients and the other agents. Thank you!!!"

"Melissa Margaretis - A huge thank you for your AMAZING customer service as I transition back into Real Estate. I have been in the Real Estate industry for over 10 years; which is long enough to know that great escrow companies are hard to find. However, I had been working on a large project in another county for the past 3 years, making me slightly detached from the current rules of residential Real Estate, and there were many things I had forgotten along the way.

Stepping back into Real Estate was a little bit scary and very comfortable at the same time. You always made me feel like I could reach out to your team for anything and with any questions; no question was too big or too small. You knew that I needed that extra guidance and you and your team ensured that you were there for me every step of the way. You truly provide excellence in customer service.

It goes to show that your team is dedicated and appreciative of all of your Realtors. This is the first of many transactions together. A HUGE THANK YOU, you have earned a Realtor for life."

Brittany Reissman, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices

“I have worked with Escrow Officers during my 27-year career as a Realtor, and Jason Garcia is simply the best Escrow Officer. He combines an easy-going personality with a vast knowledge of the Escrow process, and is extremely professional. Jason always makes himself available to me; even on a holiday weekend he answered his cell phone and was available to help me with a challenging situation. I am so impressed with his work ethic and commitment to his career that I request him on every transaction that I am involved with. My clients and other agents have also expressed to me how much they enjoyed working with Jason and would definitely use him again. Jason Garcia is not like other Escrow Officers, he takes pride in what he does and it shows.”


 

Cristie St. James, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices

Tegan Powell, I can’t tell you how happy I am with your service in our transaction. You are the most thorough, knowledgeable and professional Escrow Officer I have ever come across – and I have been a Realtor for over 21 years! I admit, I was a little skeptical when the Seller chose to go with someone outside of the company we usually use, but you have been one of my best experiences in real estate!”


 

Shirley Gilbert, Tarbell Realtors

“As a mortgage broker, my goal is to assemble the best team possible to satisfy my clients' real estate financing needs.

The Escrow Officer is crucial in ensuring a smooth transaction.  They must be able to work with multiple points of contact, work long demanding hours and juggle continual changes in the transaction. I've been in the mortgage business for 20 years and have worked with numerous escrow officers.  Anne Truscott stands head and shoulders above all of them.  Anne has worked with our firm for the past 10 years handling our refinance and purchase escrows.  She has a superior knowledge of the escrow process.  What makes Anne stand apart from the rest is her willingness to get the transaction done at all costs.  Staying late to make sure a sale closes, helping clients understand the escrow process, dealing with difficult lenders and insurance agents, Anne handles it all with ease.  'No' is not in her vocabulary, she will go the extra mile to get the transaction done on time.

Anne is an asset to any team that needs transactions to run smoothly with excellent communication throughout the process. And, she does it all with a smile on her face.”


Richard Wolff, Keystone Financial Services

“I have been in business for over 27 years, and I have worked with hundreds of Escrow Officers. Kevin Gibson learns the agents that he works with and their styles. I personally like to know everything that is going on, so Kevin is constantly e-mailing me updates about what is going on with each file - from ordering loan documents to funding and everything in between – I love that! And did I mention, he closed a deal for me in four days!!”


 

Gary Bergevin, Realtor

“I have worked with Stacey Glenzer at Pickford Escrow Company for the past three years. Stacey has always been responsive to my needs and my client’s needs. Her knowledge and professional attitude surpasses anyone I have worked with in the past.

Stacey is always friendly and very accessible. I can walk into her office any time of the day and she always welcomes me with her beautiful smile. When I walk out of Stacey’s office all of my requests are taken care of and my questions are answered. I can’t imagine working with anyone else. I will recommend Stacey and Pickford Escrow to all of my future clients.”


Dee Shiohama, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices

“Thanks to the Pickford Escrow Mission Valley Team for their effort in handling our Escrow. Your knowledge, efficiency, and service is outstanding!

Theresa Carlini, I can’t thank you enough for your kindness throughout this difficult Short Sale! Not only kindness but your patience and staying on top of the situation!  You had an answer each time I called. My client was also relieved by your expertise & push!

Thank you for making it happen for my client! Hope to work with you in the future! All the best to you!”

Kelly Pacheco and her team are my go-to resource for a smooth Escrow. They often solve potential problems before I even hear about them and help me and my team to shine. Thanks, Kelly!!”


 

Andrew Manning, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices

“Just one of the reasons I will continue to support Jessica Maldonado as my preferred Escrow Officer is her unparalleled customer service skills. I have never encountered anyone who works so tirelessly to ensure that files close promptly. Her expertise and experience within her field makes her unstoppable and a huge asset to my clients and me. She lives and breathes her work, and treats each file as if it were her own family’s personal transaction. I feel privileged to have aligned myself with such a stellar person and Escrow Officer.”


 

Kristina Nunez, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices

“Escrow is an extremely critical component in all of my real estate transactions. As such, I require an Escrow Officer and an Escrow company that I can trust to handle the myriad of details and timelines. Meghan Barr and her team at Pickford Escrow are always up for the task. They are dedicated, thorough, top-notch professionals. Meghan consistently keeps our Escrows on track to close smoothly and on time.”
