Maria Trangelo started her career in 1985 as an Escrow Assistant at City National Bank in Beverly Hills. She was a full time college student, while learning the ropes of escrow. In 1987, her mentor and friend, Billie Davis, promoted her to the position of Escrow Officer. While at City National Bank, she learned to process various types of escrows, such as refinance and loan escrows, residential resale, exchanges (concurrent, delayed and reverse), tenant relocation, commercial, industrial, holding escrows, tract escrows, coops and controlled price units. In 1992, she co-founded Billie Davis Escrow. She wore several hats at Billie Davis Escrow. She was the Director of Escrow Operations, Human Resources Administrator, Vice President, and Office Manager, while running a heavy and very profitable desk. In 2000, she joined Fidelity National Title as Vice President and Branch Manager for the company’s Beverly Hills – Estates Division. In 2010, she decided to go back to a traditional escrow company, where her main focus was escrow and service. In December 2012, she joined Portfolio Escrow, Inc.
