We do it without the uncertainty or impediments that can sometimes end a long complex sales effort in disaster.
That’s because at Atlantic Escrow we know the traps, so we know how to get you where and what you need smoothly, exactly when you need it.

And the entire Atlantic Escrow team is connected by the field’s latest technologies to maximize efficiency and effectiveness.

All escrow service must comply with the same laws and practices. The difference is found in the way each escrow company serves its clients. That’s you.
We try to accommodate every special requirement you may have, both contractual and logistical, all with the utmost concern and confidentiality.
Our client contact representatives are available for your questions virtually 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
That can be critical if a problem does occur.
Keep in mind that virtually every property transfer may require some unique instruction set by either party.
It is the responsibility of the escrow holder to assure that these requisites have been met to an absolute standard before funds are distributed, title conveyed and the escrow closed.
During this escrow period it is the escrow company that is holding the funds and that will decide if all instructions have been satisfied. In a real sense your investment is left in its hands.
An independent escrow company offers you an advantage compared to the non-licensed, sometimes called “controlled,” in-house services.
The most obvious advantage is that we are completely objective. We do not operate under front-office management as lending institutions or title companies do.
And since objectivity is essential to a fair disinterested, uninfluenced transfer, choosing an independent escrow company removes even the hint, much less the worry, of such an event ever occurring.
Licensed escrow companies like ours must meet a higher government standard than non-licensed entities. A licensed escrow firm, such as Atlantic Escrow, is bonded. That means your funds are protected during the entire escrow period. In contrast, the funds of the non-licensed entities are usually not bonded.
All licensed escrow companies are subject to regular unscheduled government and yearly CPA audits. This is to insure that their performance meets every aspect of the law. Non-licensed escrow entities are not subject to government audit.
In addition to state government control, licensed escrow companies are also subject to federal scrutiny. Every employee is fully investigated, photographed and fingerprinted by the U.S. Dept. of Justice, so you can be assured of the highest standards of integrity.
Licensed escrow companies like ours must meet a higher government standard than non-licensed entities. Generally speaking we operate under stricter controls. That adds an extra level of assurance and protection of your funds.
One of the myths about escrow service is that the best costs more. Actually it is often just the opposite.
Of course you might find someone to offer you an even lower rate than ours. But beware, often the cheapest turns out to be the most expensive when things go wrong. It’s our job to prevent that.
At Atlantic Escrow our professionalism and experience have helped us to become one of the top escrow firms. They’ve also made us one of the more competitive escrow services in this market.
