A LITTLE ABOUT US 

Secured Trust Escrow is an independent escrow company licensed under the strict regulatory requirements of the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation

Our Founder

 

Sally Rowshan is the founder and President of Secured Trust Escrow. She discovered her passion for real estate and the settlement services industry as a first-year law student at Georgetown Law School, where she interned for a small underwritten title company in Alexandria, Virginia. With a clear professional goal and profound entrepreneurial spirit, Sally opened her first title company, New Era Title, soon after graduating law school. In less than a decade, New Era Title grew to one of the largest underwritten title companies, with offices around Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. 

 

With a desire to return to her hometown, in 2010 New Era Title sold to another successful title company and Sally returned to Los Angeles with her family. 

Continuing her passion for the industry, Sally opened a new independent escrow company immediately upon moving to California. Since then, she has been the go-to escrow professional for many high-end luxury real estate transactions across Southern California. 

Holding Escrows and Business Escrows: Sally’s area of expertise is holding escrows and business sale escrows. Throughout the years, she has handled complex holding escrows for attorneys, receivers, judges, and other fiduciaries who required a third-party fiduciary to draft escrow instructions and hold funds pursuant to the requirements of an underlying agreement. Additionally, Sally has been the escrow officer for numerous complex business sales, mergers  and acquisitions, including franchise operations, gas stations, software and gaming companies, and other businesses.

 

As a result of her expertise and impact on the industry, Sally was nominated as a Top 100 U.S. Attorney in 2020 and featured in the Top 100 Attorneys Magazine.

 

Sally lives in the South Bay with her two children, who attend USC Marshall School of Business and San Jose State University's Software Engineering program. She is a participant in several charitable organizations such as Homeless Free America and Children’s Hospital.
