“I have seen it all and have loved every minute of it, Susan says. I remember interviewing for my first escrow position when I was 19 years old and asking, ‘What’s an escrow? Is that something you go into and never come out of?’ Well they laughed and decided I would make a good addition to their company. I was right, escrow is something that I went into and never came out of.” Susan has always loved the challenges escrow brings and never tires of learning something new. She especially loves helping buyers and sellers getting through one of the most stressful experiences of their lives by remaining cool and calm under any circumstances. Her clients have told her she has a good bedside manner.
