Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.  These famous words from the Declaration of
Independence were the catalyst to the formation of Liberty Closing and Escrow.  

The day a real estate transaction closes is a life changing experience with the pursuit of happiness
as the starting point and a sense of liberty at the closure:

  • The buyer can now move into their new home
  • The seller is free to make a life transition
  • The Realtor has concluded another successful transaction
  • The lender has added a new loan to their portfolio

Customer service and communication are top priorities for Liberty Closing and Escrow and are key
additions to the knowledge and accuracy required for closing real estate transactions.  You will
reach a live person when calling our office.  We work as a team enabling you to obtain answers from
more than just one person.  Our commitment is to provide all parties involved in the transaction a
positive experience that will have them spreading the word.
