Sales is in Julie Pfaffinger’s blood. She worked for more than 12 years selling title insurance and then took time off to raise her children.

During that 15-year hiatus, she put her keen sales abilities to good use for the school of her children, procuring donations to install a complete security system. Today, this go-getter channels her enthusiasm and passion as Director of Business Development for Escrow Trust Advisors.

“I had the opportunity to work with co-founder, Scott Akerley, years ago when I was in title,” Julie shared. “The reputation he has built within the escrow community is peerless. This is an amazing company, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”

Her role at Escrow Trust Advisors enables Julie to do what she enjoys most – make a positive impact on people’s lives. Relationship building is a top priority and her longstanding history in Pasadena helps to open doors. “My job is to add value to the real estate agent’s business. I like to think of us here as an assistant to our realtors.”

When she’s not multi-tasking, finding the perfect fit between agent and escrow officer or helping to coordinate events with the Pasadena Foothill Association of Realtors, Julie cherishes time with her husband and children – especially when it involves traveling.
