Lynlee Kane


LPO & Designated Escrow Officer

Grew up in Ballard and Edmonds.   Snohomish resident since 2003.   When not working, you can find me enjoying the outdoors with my husband, kids and our dog, Buster.   An avid hiker of the beautiful Northwest,  I just completed the 125 Mile section this summer (2019)  of the Pacific Crest Trail from Harts Pass to Stevens pass.   Later this past Summer I completed the 62  mile round-trip section from  Harts Pass to Canada.

I've hiked Rim to Rim and other routes within the Grand Canyon in Winter, Spring and Fall.  It is amazing.

You can find me at REI when the "garage sale" is on.

Mathematics & Econ:  BS Seattle Pacific University

Tim Kane

Owner & General Manager 

Grew up in Capitol Hill in Seattle.    I met Lynlee just after we both attended  college at Seattle Pacific University.    I enjoy housing and am a student of the real estate market and economy.     In Escrow, I'm working on transactions behind the scenes and when it's time for clients to sign their legal and loan documents,  I meet with 90% of our clients at their home, favorite coffee shop, work place, airports etc. 

Sports fan:  grew up playing very competitive Soccer and also swam for Cascade Swim Club.    Seahawks fan,  Sounders fan and try to be a Mariners fan.

Active lifestyles and sports have rubbed off on our kids.  Our  daughter is a competitive award winning Western Horse Gaming champ in Snohomish Co.   My son is 6'9" (Lynlee's side of the family) and played on select Hoops programs and is the 2nd leading rebounder in Snohomish High School history (next to Jon Brockman).   Our youngest son played baseball as a lefty pitcher for FCA Titans and Snohomish High School.

Frequently Asked Questions


What does Closing mean?

Closing is when your documents are formally recorded at the County office and funds are disbursed.  This is normally a day or so after you signed your paperwork.

Where do I sign my paperwork?

Where ever you’d like!  We come to your home, work, or favorite coffee shop.

When do I sign paperwork?

Escrow will contact you to make an appointment within a few days prior to closing.

What to bring to signing?

  • Non-expired Gov. ID (drivers license, passport, Gov. ID)
  • Cashiers Check (if required)

When do I get my new home keys?

Once your transaction is closed you will make arrangements with your Realtor or old owner.  Escrow normally does not have access to your keys.  Congrats!

Someone is out of town. What happens?

Not to worry, provided we are notified WELL prior to closing.  We will arrange for an absent party to sign paperwork out of the area or state and Fed Ex or UPS documents back to escrow.
