Meet Our Staff

Helen Lax began her escrow career in Seattle WA, specializing in VA Refinance loans. Since starting her escrow career, Helen has become an expert on a wide array of transaction types. Her vast experience and transparency, coupled with outstanding communication, helped propel her advancement to Escrow Officer. In 2012 Helen joined our Pickford
Escrow family and relocated to the fast paced San Diego real estate
market where she has flourished.

Helen is a pleasure to work with as the central point of communication between all stakeholders. As the leader of one of the highly sought after Escrow Offices in San Diego County; her integrity, efficiency, respect, and commitment to excellence are her hallmarks. The Mission Valley Escrow Branch handles a wide variety of real estate transactions; residential re-sales, commercial property sales and refinances. This team raises the bar in communication with lenders; mortgage brokers, attorneys, principals and agents. They provide mobile notary services to ensure a successful customer experience.

When Helen isn’t working with Buyers, Sellers, Lenders or Agents, she enjoys spending time with her young Daughter and their family dogs “Rocket” and “Bentley”. She has a passion for interior design, fashion, cooking, and Jeeps. Helen is a die-hard Seattle Seahawks fan who loves to travel and spend time with friends and family.

Helen and her team look forward to serving you and your clients with all your escrow needs!

"Many thanks to your team for getting this done! It was fast and difficult and your group sailed right through it."---Stephanie Murphy, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties

"I just wanted to take a moment and say THANK YOU for all of your extra efforts. You guys did an amazing job considering that ALL we closed this week had last minute lender delays which you accommodated.  I would also like to mention the cash one where you had to get everything processed, completed by buyer & seller and closed in 5 days!  This is why we use Pickford Escrow & your team absolutely as much as possible. Sometimes we forget that the extra service we take for granted is truly extraordinary. Really appreciate it!!!!!!"---Gregg R. Neuman, Neuman & Neuman Real Estate, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties
