About us

Independent and contemporary escrow provider headquartered in Los Angeles, CA.

In the early 2000s, CEO Wendy Bond saw the need for a premium, independent escrow service. Something fresh and modern with a focus on customer experience. So in 2004, Guaranty Escrow was born.

Since then, we've handled over $6.5bn in real estate escrow. Held other high-value transactions in holding escrow. And revolutionized the process for cryptocurrency deals.
