Read Bio

Cynthia Moller is a Senior Escrow Officer who likes to give back. With nearly three decades of escrow experience, she has an exceptional depth of industry knowledge that she readily offers up in her blog, “Ask Cynthia,” and to her loyal clients at Glen Oaks Escrow in Valencia.

“I like to be out front – talking, writing and presenting ideas about this great industry we’re a part of,” she said. “With today’s advanced technologies, we can easily do this, yet it’s rare to find escrow companies taking advantage of the opportunities. That’s what drew me to Glen Oaks Escrow. They’re a forward-thinking company with amazing communications and state-of-the-art processes that enable me to serve my clients better.” Cynthia started in banking, moved over to escrow and immediately began working on complex transactions like assumptions, notes and deeds of trust. Today, clients appreciate her technical expertise in a wide range of escrow transactions including residential, commercial, bulk sales, liquor license transfers and mobile homes. She is a notary public, member of the Santa Clarita Escrow Association and possesses a broad understanding of real estate law by taking advantage of continued education courses through industry classes and seminars.

Cynthia is also a “front person” in her personal life. As a “drop in” singer with several local southland bands, she often performs at events to support charities like the Food Pantry. When she’s not onstage or working with non-profit organizations like Habitat for Humanity, this hardworking Mom brings her vibrant personality home to share with the three biggest joys in her life – her children.
