Job Description for Escrow Officer

An escrow officer works primarily with real estate transactions and helps ensure each sale meets legal requirements before releasing buyer funds to the seller. The officer does this by reviewing the contract between buyer and seller, conducting research to ensure that the property title is clear and not under lien from another lender, creating closing documents to be signed by all parties, and setting up the timetable for the final closing. This requires the individual to have a number of skills, including familiarity with computers and real estate software, experience in the real estate industry, and effective interpersonal communication skills to work with buyers and sellers. The position also involves a significant amount of multitasking, so it's important for an escrow officer to be flexible and able to successfully complete several tasks at the same time.
