Quick Tips


For Debra Boozer: Hallmark Escrow has always been #1 in my book. Debra and her crew go over the top when it comes to customer service. Working with Hallmark Escrow for the past 18 years has been a great pleasure. When I close an escrow with an outside agent and Debra is the escrow officer, the agent always has something good to say about her performance during the transaction.
