Tracey Okubo’s earliest memories are shaped by her mother who was an escrow officer for more than 50 years. It was she who persuaded her daughter to give real estate a whirl over 40 years ago. Together, they owned and operated two independent escrow firms. Today, Tracey leverages that experience and business insight as the Branch Manager for Glen Oaks Escrow in San Marino.
“I started out working for big title companies, but once I switched to escrow there was no turning back,” commented Tracey. “There are so many different paths and interesting situations in escrow. I love unraveling problems, and here at Glen Oaks Escrow, we have the support system, technology and professional staff in place to provide unrivaled customer service.” With her extensive title and escrow background, including working with Chase on more than 200 REO deals per month, Tracey provides her team with a rare storehouse of knowledge to expedite escrow transactions in today’s increasingly regulatory environment. One of her greatest joys is working with different cultures. She is fond of stating, “It’s not just escrow. It’s helping people.” This sentiment has earned her a loyal clientele in the Chinese, Indian, Jewish and Hispanic communities among others.
From mother to daughter, escrow has passed down through the Okubo family. 16 years ago, Tracey’s daughter joined her and the team at Glen Oaks Escrow, making it a three-generation family tradition.
