Meet Our Sunwest Escrow Family



Executive Vice President,, 505-938-3805

After graduating from Eldorado High School, I started my business career in 1985 working for a locally owned Escrow Company in Albuquerque. I joined Terry White at First Financial Escrow in 1987 which then became Sunwest Escrow in 1997 and further branched out to Sunwest Escrow, Inc. My experience includes extensive knowledge with all aspects of Real Estate Contracts and Individual Retirement Accounts. I enjoy what I do and consider my responsibilities at Sunwest both my vocation and avocation. Personally, I have two children and enjoy spending as much time with them as possible and seeing them grow into adulthood. I have enjoyed the last 30 years here and watching the company grow and look forward to see what the future brings to Sunwest.




Executive Assistant,, 505-938-3822

Albuquerque has been my home since 1960. I have often tried to imagine what it might be like to live somewhere else, but I am in love with the beauty of the southwest and would not want to live anywhere else. I have raised my two sons here, and am happy that they, and I, have had the experience of neighborhood, great schools, and lifetime friends. I spent many years as a general manager in the restaurant industry, acquiring skills in the public part of the business and many behind the scenes. I enjoy wearing many hats and love quiet bookkeeping! The things I try to do on off time? Art, music, movies, friends and spend time with my precious grandchildren.


A Karen 1136 AA


  Escrow Customer Service,, 505-938-3815

I am a second generation native New Mexican, born and raised in Albuquerque. I grew up in the South Valley and now reside in the East Mountains with my horses and an Australian Sheppard named Cooper. I enjoy time with family and my Mom is my best friend and supporter in life. I am hoping someday for her and her husband to return to this area so that I can help her as much as she helps me. I have numerous interest including my involvement and activities with my church, health, nutrition, religion and politics to name a few, however, my passion in horses and natural horsemanship. The phycology behind the natural horsemanship intrigues me. I love the beauty, athleticism, playfulness, interaction and relationship with this amazing creature, each one being unique in their individual personalities. Of course my dog(s) are very special too! Prior to joining Sunwest, I worked in the Escrow/Title  Insurance industry for around 25 years and spent the last 5 years at a Real Estate and Business Law Firm. I joined Sunwest  in June, 2014 and am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this team.

I was born and raised in Albuquerque and loved every minute of it. I graduated high school from Eldorado and graduated from UNM with a bachelor’s degree in English.

I then spent three years working locally as a marketing manager and graphic designer for the national real estate publication called The Real Estate Book. After graduation I moved directly to Sunwest. In my off time I enjoy spending time with my wife as we patiently wait for the arrival of our first child and playing soccer in the summers and snowboarding in winter.


A Sheila1233


Director of Charitable Giving,

Terry and I were married in 1980 and while he worked hard growing this company, I stayed home and took care of our 3 boys. In 2011, I started giving birthday parties for CLNKids, a homeless daycare center here in Albuquerque. Over time, my position at Sunwest has evolved into a new position, Director of Charitable Giving. God has blessed Terry and I and our family and company beyond measure, definitely more than we deserve. We have chosen to give back to the community in our own unique way. Through Sunwest, I deliver Starbucks to cancer patients during their chemo treatments, give the parties at the daycare center each month, cook dinners for patients residing at Casa Esperanza, we supply socks and underwear for clients at St. Martins Hospitality Center and most recently we have adopted the elementary school behind our office building to help where there is a need. I am enjoying being a part of the staff.

Over the years I played a part in several startup companies including First Financial Equities, Inc., First Financial Trust, Inc., First Financial Marketing, Inc. and Asset Ventures, Inc. In 1997 First Financial Escrow, Inc. was able to purchase the escrow accounts from Sunwest Bank and changed its name to Sunwest Escrow. As the market changes Sunwest has grown and changed along with it. Besides my wife, Sheila, we have three boys, two daughter-in-laws, one grandson, another grandson on the way and a future daughter-in-law.
