Because we’ve always focused on providing the best service and highest level of professionalism, we’ve been fortunate that we’re now able to capitalize on our successes.

Escrow of the West, a Beverly Hills-based independent escrow company, has recently expanded their operations into the San Fernando Valley by opening a new location in Sherman Oaks, CA. This new branch office will be managed by Marcine Kline, who joins Escrow of the West with over 32 years of experience servicing this area and its client base.

The recent successes of the Beverly Hills branch, resulting from an influx of short sale and bank-owned REO transactions, a continued focus on high-end, commercial and new construction transactions and also from a concerted effort to recruit the best Escrow Officers in the marketplace, have allowed Escrow of the West the opportunity to expand into the Valley while other escrow companies are shuttering their business. This track record of achievement has been built by Galit Ofengart, owner and Senior Escrow Officer of Escrow of the West, and her staff, who have the common vision, “To Exceed Your Expectations This Time… Next Time…Every Time…”

“With this new Valley office, Escrow of the West is excited to be taking our business to new heights,” Ofengart said. “The marketplace has presented us with a unique opportunity for expansion and because we’ve always focused on providing the best service and highest level of professionalism, we’ve been fortunate that we’re now able to capitalize on our successes.”

By targeting the Valley for branch expansion, Escrow of the West expects to tap into a market that continues to do well in spite of the economic downturn that has plagued the country, all while helping to accommodate the increased volume of Beverly Hills short sale and bank-owned REO transactions. Also, having recruited Kline as the new Sherman Oaks Branch Manager, Escrow of the West garners further credibility, as she has built a long-standing reputation for excellence that ranks amongst the highest in the industry.

“Bringing Marcine on board was a vital piece of our expansion plans. With her sterling reputation as one of the most well respected Escrow Officers in the industry, we set our sights on her from the very beginning,” stated Ofengart. “Now that we have her on board, I feel very comfortable in handing her the reigns and watching this new office take off.”

With experience in residential and commercial re-sale, bank-owned REO, subdivisions and tracts, refinance and exchange transactions, and as a specialist in Probate, Trust Sales, Conservatorships and both Court and IAEA transactions, Kline also brings industry knowledge in a field that is frequently lacking in qualified escrow proficiency. As a result of this expertise, Kline has frequently saved clients both time and money by knowing effective ways to circumvent the many difficult and messy probate title issues which often come up during these types of transactions.

“It is with great pleasure that I join Escrow of the West,” stated Kline, “the reputation that they’ve built in this industry is unparalleled and it’s an honor to help them expand into the San Fernando Valley. By combining the diverse book of business that both they and I have established, I expect all of us to reach new heights, and it’s a privilege to be a part of the team.”

Escrow of the West, a Southern California-based independent escrow company, is licensed by the Department of Corporations and is a member of the Escrow Agents Fidelity Corporation. Escrow of the West, through its principals, has more than 70 years' experience in both residential and commercial real estate. For more information, visit http://www.escrowofthewest.com.
