We will do all that we can to work diligently on behalf of all parties to enable a prompt and timely close of your escrow.


Our History


In 1960 Herb Motkin, after ten years in the title insurance industry opened Sepulveda Escrow. Shortly thereafter, he joined the largest escrow franchise at that time, operating as the Sepulveda Escrow office of Western Mutual Escrow Corporation and continued to operate under this franchise until the incorporation of Sepulveda Escrow Corporation in 1983.


In June 1986 Herb’s daughter Melissa joined the firm. Presently, Melissa is the president and manager of the corporation. Melissa, with over 30 years of experience in the escrow industry, is considered an expert in her field. Melissa is strongly committed to customer service and she works diligently to satisfy the needs of all parties in escrow, as well as being personally available to address all questions and concerns which may arise during the escrow process.


The year 2005 was an exciting one for Sepulveda Escrow, when Herb’s granddaughter Sharona Motkin joined the firm. Sharona is the third generation in the Motkin family to now be working in the Escrow Industry. Sharona is a graduate of the Sy Syms School of Business and has a bachelors degree in Accounting. Sharona worked as a Senior Financial Analyst for Goldman Sachs on Wall Street and brings her extensive knowledge of accounting and business experience to Sepulveda Escrow.


Sepulveda Escrow Corporation, a full service escrow company, has been serving the community and providing quality escrow services for over 50 years.
