Carmen Alvarado was studying at Cal State Northridge for a career in psychology when she got the opportunity to work as a receptionist in an escrow company. It didn’t take long for the real estate bug to bite. Twelve years and a Psychology Bachelor’s later, Carmen is channeling her desire to help people, not as a psychologist, but as an Escrow Officer at Glen Oaks Escrow.
“I like to make people happy and love working in escrow,” Carmen shared. “For families and newlyweds purchasing their first home, you want to make it the best possible experience.” She joined Glen Oaks Escrow alongside Marcine Kline with whom she has worked her entire career. “We have a great relationship, and I love the management team here at Glen Oaks Escrow. The family-like atmosphere, the supportive team, the paperless environment — it’s all very welcoming and professional.” Carmen handles a variety of escrow transactions and is bilingual in Spanish and English.
Outside of the office, Carmen enjoys going to the theater, and as newlywed herself, spends as much quality time as possible with her husband and son and their Olde English Bulldogge.
