What We Do
Residential Resale Escrows
At Lighthouse, we primarily work with clients who are buying or selling a home. We routinely work with real estate professionals from the best and most established brokerages such as The Boutique Real Estate Group, Realty One Group, Surterre Properties, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Keller Williams, Century 21, Remax, Harcourts, Weichert Realtors, Coldwell Banker, Homesmart Evergreen, LuXre Realty, and more. Our clients appreciate our regular communication, clear articulation of next steps, use of convenient e-signing technology, and willingness to meet people wherever they are either in-person or digitally via phone, email, cloud services, or text.
Residential Refinance Escrow
Refinances should be simple and straightforward; at Lighthouse, that's exactly what they are. To ensure a seamless close, we've built relationships with the processing teams of many of Orange County's most prominent lending institutions such as Kinecta Federal Credit Union, New American Funding, Sierra Pacific Mortgage, American Pacific Mortgage, Golden One Credit Union, Finance America, iMortgage, Prime Lending, and more. We understand the expectations of all the major institutions and make sure we get ahead of challenges before they turn into problems.
Residential Short Sale Escrows
Short Sales can be challenging transactions. The emotions which already go into a home sale are compounded by various parties positioning themselves to mitigate their losses on the transaction. When Lighthouse was founded in 2010, we specialized in Short Sales and have successfully closed hundreds of short sales over our six year history. Our experience has given us deep insight into the process and the goals of the interested parties. As a result, we've been able to close on short sales many thought were doomed from the start.
Our tech-forward approach to escrow is not limited to home buyers and sellers. If you're selling a commercial property, Lighthouse has a solution for you. Our team works closely with your attorneys, agents, and other parties to keep information flowing and quickly solve problems so your high value purchase doesn't fall through.
