Meet The Team
Arden Escrow has senior escrow officers and company staff with more than 60 years of combined experience handling all types of escrows from conventional sales to refinancings, short sales, commercial and mobile home transactions.
Safeguarding the often-large amounts of money held in trust during a real estate transaction is a major obligation. In addition, it is our primary responsbility to ensure that all of the necessary instructions in the real estate agreement are executed.
Only a licensed escrow company is guaranteed by the Department of Business Oversight (DOB) to be experienced, is bonded, is audited, and must conduct criminal background checks of all employees, owners, and stockholders. Licensed escrow companies must meet government requirements for financial liquidity and ensured trust funds for a minimum of $500,000.
Unlicensed escrow companies can be owned by a variety of entities, including real estate brokers, mortgage brokers, banks, savings and loans, and title insurance companies. Arden Escrow offers buyers, sellers, brokers, agents, and lenders an alternative to escrow companies recommended by or connected to one of the parties involved in the sale.
At Arden Escrow, we are committed to providing clients personalized attention and knowledge and serving them with integrity.

By choosing Arden Escrow, a licensed independent escrow company, you can ensure that your escrow is handled impartially and that all parties are fairly represented throughout the process.
