For Michelle Smith: I use Michelle and Ellen at Hallmark Escrow whenever I am the listing agent.

They have always given me excellent service and continually have gone above and beyond what standard service would offer including staying very late to get an escrow closed for me. When my deal is with Hallmark Escrow in Fullerton, I know I am covered and it is one less thing I worry about.

With Hallmark, communication is easy and challenges are tackled and conquered. I appreciate their hard work and they show me that they appreciate my continued business. I would recommend their service to anyone in the real estate business – you will not be disappointed.

For Ashley Bowman: Thank you so much for all the hard work you’ve put into managing our clients’ escrows. In these trying times, it is not unusual for real estate agents to come across escrow services that always fall short of expectations. However, in your case you are clearly the exception to the rule and I am very lucky to call you one of my team members. There is no doubt that as an escrow officer for Hallmark Escrow you are in a class of your own above the rest.

- Sandro Siles, Realtor




For Ashley Bowman: I am writing this letter to let you know that if you chose to use Ashley Bowman, Manager of Hallmark Escrow in Irvine, you have chosen, in my opinion, the very finest escrow officer in Southern California. She will not only work for you, but she will treat everybody in the transaction with equal respect and dignity.

- Randy Hix, Realtor




For Ashley Bowman: Ashley is the kind of escrow officer that every client looks for. She is personable, a hard worker and knows the escrow business. She is a problem solver. I would highly recommend Ashley.

- Mike Hampton, Realtor




For Ashley Bowman: Ashley Bowman is one of the best escrow officers in Orange County. I have closed over 600 escrows in my career and obviously worked with many escrow officers. I can say with 100% confidence that Ashley is making a difference in my business. The smoother she makes the transaction and the more she takes off my desk by going above and beyond, the more real estate I can sell! She has proven to do this over and over. The most important part is that she is taking care of my client’s needs and they are satisfied which is a positive reflection on me. Thank you, Ashley!

- Mike Kelly, Realtor




For Ashley Bowman: Ashley Bowman and her team at Hallmark Escrow are outstanding. Their exemplary customer service, attention to detail and professionalism make Hallmark and Ashley my only choice.

- Blair Borne, Realtor




For Ashley Bowman: I would like to take this opportunity to let you know my experiences with Ashley Bowman, the best escrow officer in Orange County, hands down! I have been a licensed realtor since 1999 and have been involved in many escrows, some not of my own choice. Many of them are a 'nightmare', however, not the escrows that I have with Ashley Bowman. Ashley is very conscientious and very involved in each escrow from the moment it is open. I never have to worry that she is going to drop the ball in one of my escrows and my communication with her is excellent. Ashley knows I am one of those agents who is 'on top' of things and I like being involved in the entire escrow process. Ashley doesn't mind giving me the information I need to be satisfied that everything is ok. She also goes above and beyond to try to make both buyer and seller happy regardless of which side I am on and that is very important. Too many times I have been involved in an escrow where the escrow officer does not seem like a 'neutral third party', however, that is never the case with Ashley. Bottom line, whenever I have a choice of escrow, I will choose Ashley.

- Julie Loeb, Realtor




For Stephanie Alberts: We want to thank you and your team for your constant communication and professionalism. We are forever grateful!

- Lesley H., Buyer
