An escrow agent (also known as a closing agent) is a neutral third party that coordinates the closing of a transaction. Among other things, the escrow agent receives and holds the buyer’s funds and ensures that the necessary documents are executed. Using an escrow agent is almost always required where the buyer is purchasing with a loan. Where there is not a loan, the use of an escrow agent is still highly recommended. Our firm offers competitive pricing for our escrow services, and because we are attorneys, we are able to draft legal documents and offer guidance and understanding through the legal issues that frequently arise.
