Sally Barerra has more than two decades of experience in real estate with a significant portion serving the title business in customer service and sales. Sally’s vast experience and background make her an easy problem solver for many transactions. That career path took a turn when she had a chance meeting with longtime colleague and CEO of Glen Oaks Escrow (GOE), Scott Akerley. Today, Sally is in charge of business development at GOE where her exuberant and caring personality have found the perfect home.
“There is no similarity between title and escrow,” Sally explains. “Title is selling paper. Escrow is all about people and relationships. It’s very rewarding.” Like a casting director, she sees her role as matching the right client with the right escrow officer. The culture at GOE is supportive of her efforts, providing state-of-the-art technology, continued education and an open door policy. “I really like the fact that the company is big, but the people treat each other like a small boutique company. It’s a family environment.” Sally is bilingual in English and Spanish and involved in the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP), Montebello District Board of Realtors, Downey Association of Realtors® Inc., Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) and Real Estate Owner’s Management Association of California (REOMAC).
Sally enjoys sharing her knowledge and frequently holds educational seminars at the office for lenders, realtors, homebuyers and anyone interested in learning more about the trends and regulations that continue to shape real estate and escrow transactions. “I introduce everyone I meet to GOE because I know they will ultimately become raving fans.”
