I have been in the real estate industry since 1978 and enjoy closing both residential and commercial properties. Booth Escrow, LLC opened June, 09' here in the Redondo neighborhood of Federal Way.
Why close at Booth Escrow, LLC?
Because I care that the transaction closes on time and that all parties are informed all along the way. I have a website that allows you to upload your Purchase & Sale Agreement to get escrow started right away without having to handle yet another set of paper to get to escrow. My website has a download page that allows listing agents to print out a Seller Authorization Statement to get signed with the listing. This is a real time saver when you are either working on a short sale, looking for a fast close or have unresponsive sellers.
Booth Escrow, LLC also offers:
Free local signings (within a 20 mile radius of my location) at your customers preferred time and location
Skype or Windows Live conferencing with you and/or your out of town customers
Flexible hours when needed
My office is located in the "mother-in-law" apartment here in my home in the Redondo area of Federal Way so my commute is easy and it is pretty nice. Stop on by and check it out if you are in the neighborhood. I meet the buyers and sellersat their location for signing, but when timing is critical I have a very nice office here for them to come to.

I started my real estate career in 1978, just out of high school at Spot Realty in Silverdale. Bob Dick was the broker and he had a very progressive group of agents that I kept organized. In 1983 I joined the escrow team at Land Title Company of Kitsap County, under the mentorship of Joyce Clay and Gene Kennedy. I received my Limited Practice Officers License in 1985 and worked for that company until 2001 when I moved to Seattle and accepted a position as the Branch Manager/AVP for the downtown branch of Fidelity National Title. After a brief time at First American Title in late 2008, I decided to open up my own company.
I have been involved with my regional trade associations as well as the Escrow Association of Washington for many years at many different levels. I feel that it is vital that I know about new legislation immediately and stay ahead of the trends.
"We really enjoy working with Julie Booth. She is very attentive to us and our clients. Her attention to detail and follow-up makes every transaction smooth and easy."
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity "Julie was the first escrow officer I worked with over 22 years ago when I started in real estate. Her knowledge and expertise were invaluable to me as a new agent. All these years later, the escrow officers I work with now are always amazed at my level of detail and knowledge in closing a transaction. Thanks Julie, I owe much of my success in real estate to you."
April 8, 2009 Randi Strong-Soderstrom Hired Julie for Escrow Services in 1986; has hired Julie more than once
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity "I have worked with Julie on 90% of my transaction the past 3 years. I have followed her from Fidelity T&E to 1st American due to her professionalism, her no nonsense integrity, and the expertise that she provides in the understanding of the title and escrow business. We can take this expertise for granted until big issues arise that can crash a deal. I've found that I can lean on Julie to ensure that my transactions get completed smoothly and that my clients are in great care when working with her. I'm looking forward to the new project she is working on and being a part of her continued success."
April 2, 2009 Albert Clark Hired Julie as a Real Estate Agent in 2005; has hired Julie more than once
Top qualities: Expert, On Time, High Integrity "I had the extreme good fortune to work with Julie on a very complicated escrow transaction which involved trusts, numerous family members, and numerous parcels of land, and was very much impressed with her from the moment we met. Julie's vast knowledge, not just about escrows, business, and real estate, but about life in general, makes her an invaluable partner for any client fortunate enough to cross paths with her. I have nothing but immense gratitude and the highest esteem for Julie and am honored to be able to recommend her to anyone considering her services."
December 31, 2008 Cate Riley Hired Julie as a Escrow Closer/Professional in 2006
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert "I have used Julie Booth to close my real estate escrows for most of the past decade and she has never let me down. I would not hesitate to recommend Julie as a Closer to anyone."
December 30, 2008 Joel Barth Hired Julie as a Escrow-Real Estate LPO in 2001; has hired Julie more than once
