OUR ESCROW FIRM REVIEWS


“I never have to worry about my escrows when The Escrow Source handles them.”
Divina - Realtor

“Shelby, Thank you so much for your patient professionalism on the Glen Meijo purchase. We are so grateful and hope to be able to do business with you again.”
Chris - Client

“Dear Shelby, Just back to my office and I wanted to share with you how much I appreciated all of your hard work throughout this escrow and specifically today. You are a true professional in every sense of the word and your ease in calming the “situation” was amazing. You rock.”
Trisha - Seller

“I wanted to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU. You did an amazing job. Shelby, you slammed the escrow and got on the HOA docs like no one’s business. You made me look so good. I know that I am the type of Real Estate Broker that is Slam the door, Close the escrow, and go find someone else, so I can kick some tail feathers, but I did not want this deal to go by without acknowledging what a FANTASTIC job you did. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Tom - Realtor

“I felt that you guys went above and beyond. Especially when you drove over and got the signatures last minute. This would not have happened without that. I know you don’t work for either the buyers or sellers, but thanx to Escrow Source. We get the keys today.”
Randy & Kristen - Buyers

“Michelle, Thank you for all your hard work on escrow. It was challenging but with your expertise, you got it done!”
Rick, Paula, & Theresa - Realtors

“Knowledgeable, Personal, committed to her work, just an amazing job she did for us. Liza went above and beyond, she got the Job done and done right!.”
Tom and Cecelia - Seller

“Liza, I just wanted to say “thank you” to you and your company for the professional service that you gave to us. I understand you did quite a bit of work and we appreciate your service. Even the gals who dealt with me today were courteous, kind and efficient. I am certain this kind of courtesy will come back to you ten fold.”
Debbie - Buyer

“What a difference a GOOD Escrow Officer makes on a transaction. Just closing a transaction with an escrow team that should be selling make-up at Macy’s instead of closing real estate transactions. Makes me appreciate Liza Thomas all the more….she raised the bar on efficiency, accountability and going the extra mile. I wish she was on every transaction. Love your work Liza. Thank you for setting the standard.” –
Anila - Mortgage Broker

“Thank you Liza. Hope you find this to be a prime example of the due diligence, competence & example of OUR escrow officer, Betty as we spoke about a smooth enjoyable drama free escrow. I hope you’d consider using her in the future on any if not all of your listing’s or “choice of services”. She doesn’t throw in outrageous junk fees to OUR clients and makes sure everyone performs according to any & ALL sections of the subject property’s articles or file for that matter.”
Matt - Real Estate Agent

Kevin, Thank you!!!!! Great job on the escrow, the Seller’s are so appreciative! Kind regards
Lisa - Realtor

Kevin: I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate your office and in particular Raleigh Roberts for an exceptional great job in getting this file closed. Raleigh performed beyond expectation, not only closing a very difficult file in record time, but doing so in a most professional, efficient and pleasant manner. In addition Raleigh had the courtesy to maintain me well informed every step of the way through continuous phone calls and updates. Great Job! This type of excellent work is very lacking in the industry, I will be happy to continue to send escrows your way for maintaining such a high level of effective escrow work. Thank you
Sal - Realtor

Kevin, Thank you very much for all your help and making the whole process very smooth. We really appreciate you going the extra mile and jumping through hoops to make sure everything happened on time in order to meet the short escrow deadline. We enjoyed work with you and your team. Our thanks goes to the whole team behind the scenes as well.
Luis and Frances - Buyer

Hi Kevin, Just wanted to give a quick thank you for the help today. I’ve tried to coordinate sending doc’s in the morning and fund by 1:00 on several occasions with some other companies and haven’t been able to pull it off…..until today. Great work, thanks again!
Randy - Mortgage Broker

Thank you Kevin for the continued great work! You are the best in the business and it is great working with you.
Ryan - Mortgae Broker

Raleigh and Kevin I would like to personally thank you and congratulate you for having the quickest response time in my 16 plus years in the business (as a mortgage broker). Not only did you get us an updated PR the first day…..morning…..you saw the file you gave us an estimated closing statement. That is flat out amazing work….no one ever gets it done that fast. You are on fire! THANK YOU!!!!
Brad - Mortgage Broker

Excellent Escrow company. Kevin and team did a great job getting everything done on time! We highly recommend The Escrow Source! Thanks,
Chris - Realtor

Dear Shelby, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all you have done for me as an escrow officer during my career in real estate sales. You handled my very first escrow and took great care to make sure I was not only protected but also looked like a pro to my client.  Since then, with each transaction we have worked on together, you demonstrated great professionalism, solved issues as they arose and made sure all parties were fully informed and doing what was necessary. Along with Terri Glenn, you both do whatever is necessary to move the transaction along and do it in a positive and effective manner.  I have never heard either of you say “We can’t” and it is very comforting to know you will find a way through any difficulty. Thanks for years of terrific service. Broker/Associate First Team Real Estate
Janice Wiviott - Realtor

To Whom It May Concern: We’ve had the good fortune to work with Shelby Minotta at The Escrow Source on numerous escrows in the past thirteen years and strongly recommend her and her team to anyone who values professionalism, technical expertise, and experience. Shelby is the first and only escrow officer we recommend when we open an escrow because we are confident that she will do everything necessary for a smooth, problem- and mistake-free escrow. She is supported by an amazing team that ensures calls are answered and client requests are handled quickly and efficiently. She approaches each escrow with a combination of enthusiasm and know-how that ensures happy clients and happy agents at closing. We have such confidence in Shelby that we’ve used her on every personal real estate transaction we’ve completed since we first began working with her.  If you’re searching for an escrow officer you can trust to make you shine on each transaction, look no further! Sincerely,
Veronica Encinas & Rosario A. Rodriguez - Realtors

“It was nice working with an escrow company close by (Laguna Niguel) that I could easily drop off any essential information. Ashley and Michelle were on their game and would call me back with any concerns or clarifications I needed. I was out of town the day I was to sign papers and they had a mobile notary in my hotel lobby waiting for me at 7:30 pm the night before closing. Even the mobile notary was great to work with, texting me she was arriving and texting me when she hand delivered the loan docs to The Escrow Source the next day. Again, the entire home purchase from Minni/Redfin, to Patty/Chase Bank to The Escrow Source, was beautiful. Many thanks to all of you.”
Christy Salmon - Buyer

Kevin, Raleigh, Brittany, Thanks for all your help. I really appreciate. Transaction was amazingly smooth, and all documents were so well organized. Thanks again!

Melanie - Broker

“Raleigh and Kevin  I would like to personally thank you and congratulate you on having the quickest response time in my 16 years plus in this business. (as a mortgage broker banker) Not only did you get us an updated PR the first day… morning…you saw the file, you gave us an estimated closing statement (escrow and title fees for GFE). That is flat out amazing work…no one ever gets it done that fast. You are on fire!”
Brad - Mortgage Broker

” I don’t normally recommend businesses unless I am absolutely confident that the person receiving the recommendation will be treated in the same manner. Trust me when I say that I will not hesitate in recommending Kevin or The Escrow Source in the future. Feel free to publish this note. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to your staff and thank you for retaining great personnel. A very satisfied client.”
Al Scaduto

Michelle, The service was extraordinary and I will surely choose your escrow company next time as well. It was a huge difference from all the other escrow companies out there. I know you and your staffs are really busy with a lot of escrows but you and Pam always made time for me and made me feel as if mine was the only one you were working on. You answered my calls and emails right away. It was really above and beyond what most other companies do. Thank you so much!!
Claire Baxter - Surterre Propertis

“Liza, you have performed your services in exemplary fashion, particularly during such a difficult and rare situation. I certainly will request that you be our escrow officer next time we have another real estate transaction.”
Rob - Buyer

“Liza, I want to thank you very much for all of your hard work in getting this process taken care of.  I know that you guys work very hard and are under a lot of pressure coming at you from every which way.  I just want you to know how THANKFUL I am to have such great people working on my behalf. Everyone has been so helpful and informative and has put up with me and all my questions and concerns. I don’t know of any one in your position that takes time out of their private time to answer and respond to your clients. It has made everything so much easier. It’s nice to see that there really are people out there that do care about others and their job. Your boss/company should be very proud of you and appreciate what a great employee they have. I wish there were more people like you out there.”
Jeannie - Buyer

“Thank you so much Liza! Appreciate all your hard work on my file. You do an amazing job – you are definitely on your A game. Love it – you make life easier! Especially with the other house I bought being such a nightmare – you made this transaction very smooth!”
Cyndie - Seller

I want to take a moment, even though email pales in comparison to my gratitude, and thank you for helping make our dream home come true. The professionalism and integrity we were shown by you and your staff at each step of the process was excellent. Best real estate transaction I’ve ever experienced, especially for such a challenging situation. We’re ecstatic. Wishing you all the best.
Scott - Buyer

Chris - Realtor

Hi Kevin, I wanted to personally thank you for the great service you and your team provide. Super quick and responsive, always available……doesn’t always happen that way. Hope to do more business with you in the future.
Brad - Realtor

You are so amazing. Remind me to use the Escrow Source for all my future escrows. 🙂
Maren - Realtor

Thank you again Kevin, you made this very short escrow go very smoothly. Your hard work appreciated!
Gary - Buyer

This is why we work with the best in the business, The Escrow Source is a phenomenal escrow company. Situation handled.
Paul - Realtor

Hello Kevin, Today my transaction was completed. I have to take a minute to share with you how EXCELLENT Raleigh is at her job! Whatever you are paying her give her more. I am committed to my in-house escrow however if there is ever any glitch, I will come back to you with the understanding that I want Raleigh to handle the transaction. Warmly,
Diana - Realtor

I have been actively involved with real estate since 1984. I strongly feel that one of the most important parts of the transaction is the escrow process. Clients have more interaction here and if not accomplished correctly, the transaction can really go sideways or fall apart. In working with Shelby and her team, I can rest assured that they will take a pro active position and continually keep me posted. Any issues will be immediately addressed and remedied. All of my clients have expressed genuine interest that they enjoy working with Shelby. She can guide them and assist them. Terri Glenn can pick up, deliver and perform Notary functions at the convenience of the client. If you are looking for someone that gets the job done correctly and actually make the process enjoyable to all parties, look no further: It is Shelby Minotta and her team. Sincerely,
Realtor - David Koffs Letter of recommendation for Shelby Minotta

Shelby Minotta at The Escrow Source is the best in the business! Not only do we use her on the transactions that we choose the escrow officer, we HIGHLY recommend other agents use her when they choose escrow because that is just how great she is. Shelby is kind, patient, and extremely hard working. She is so knowledgeable about escrow, real estate, and all that goes into a successful transaction. Shelby also sings a sweet little song to us every time we close an escrow which is a sure fast way to brighten the day! Her business developer/marketing representative, Terri Glenn, is equally amazing, and is quick to assist us or our clients in whatever we need, all with a smiling face. We have been working with Shelby for about 4 years now and will continue to do so. We have complete trust and faith that she will complete each transaction we open and that our clients will enjoy working with her. Words cannot describe our gratitude for all that Shelby has done for us. THANK YOU SHELBY AND TERRI!
Gary Ward and Kayla Merwin - Realtors

We have been using Shelby and her team consistently for years now and we could not be happier! Shelby has the most incredible attitude making her the best partner during escrows that are challenging. She and her team usually solve problems before they even have to tell me about it. Her negotiating skills are phenomenal and she is always able to explain everything perfectly to my clients when they are confused or concerned. With their knowledge, help and expertise Shelby and her team have been a substantial reason why we are top selling Realtors today. Tifany & Olivia Khakdoust - Realtors

Dear Kevin, Thank you again for the great job with our escrow and for your time with my questions de jour. It was such a pleasure working with you – exceeded my expectations – truly!!! My compliments to you (& your assistants). Thanks again
