A graduate of UCLA with a degree in psychology, Veto Ruiz applies his learning every day in the people-oriented business of escrow. His experience in the industry exceeds 20 years, and over half of that time has been with Glen Oaks Escrow’s sister company, American Trust Escrow.

“I’ve loved this business from the first day I started as a receptionist back in 1993,” Ruiz said. “You meet new people every day, it’s constantly changing and it’s very demanding. Glen Oaks Escrow ensures we deliver the highest service standards by providing the latest in technology, industry reports and trend updates. Their care for clients and employees is exemplary.” Veto’s own work ethic does not go unnoticed by his clients who come back again and again for his attentive service, superb organization and troubleshooting skills. His escrow focus is primarily in residential including short sales and refinancing.

For rest and relaxation, you’ll find Veto on thin ice – the kind that requires a hockey stick and puck. He competes in an adult hockey league, and also enjoys spending time with his family.
