Placer Title Company
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ’ S COMMERCIAL ESCROW EXPERT
enny Vega is a dynamo . Her 15- year career as a commercial escrow officer with Placer Title Company is a testament to the power of her finely honed expertise , her endless commitment to client service and her unparalleled hard work .
Originally from Oregon , Vega came to Sacramento to attend McGeorge School of Law . She became a real estate attorney , but it didn ’ t appeal to her . When offered a career as a commercial escrow officer with PTC , she took the opportunity . Today , she is also PTC ’ s senior vice president – Sacramento County Division , and oversees the Commercial division . She handles transactions throughout Northern California , as well as multistate transactions .
“ Jenny has a tough job , but she ’ s highly focused and organized ,” says Val Baldo , president of PTC ’ s Sacramento County Division . “ She manages customers ’ expectations to the highest level and has a great talent for managing emotions . It takes several people to cover her work when she takes vacation .”
Confirming this , Vega laughs , “ I multitask like nobody ’ s business . I ’ m a machine — I get more done in two hours than most people get done in two days . I came back from vacation once and found desks moved in for people needed to cover the work I do .”
Vega says that with any transaction there are many people to please , including brokers , developers , attorneys and lenders . “ Title and escrow work can be the same thing every day , except when problems arise , and I like solving those problems for people and forming personal relationships with them ,” she says .
Though Vega isn ’ t retiring anytime soon , she ’ d like to expand PTC ’ s commercial division with a generation to fill her shoes when she ultimately retires to Spain . Looking to the more immediate future , she sees confidence and activity returning to normal despite the current pandemic . “ Transactions have picked back up ,
L especially so as we head to the year ’ s end .
