A Tribute to Gil Escobedo By Daniel Ceniceros, CEO of Connect Media
“Just a title rep.” Throughout my occupation, I have actually heard that a fair bit. However the man I speak about today was a lot more. Unfortunately, this does not have a pleased closing. The market has lost a giant. Yeah, he really did not develop high-rises or sell billions of dollars of property, however he was entailed in altering the landscape of the Western UNITED STATE Today, I discovered that I shed my dear friend, Gil Escobedo of Republic Title. Until completion, Gil was doing what he loved; offering the market. Sadly, the global pandemic cut his life short. Absolutely nothing was mosting likely to stop Gil from doing his work which he loved a lot.
I initially met Gil in 1998 in the Downtown L.A. networking club. He as well as Denise Anthony, of Lawyer’s Title, showed me the ropes. They taught me just how to fearlessly walk right into a broker or lending institution office and break down my RE SoCal magazines with a smile. For the next 15 years, Gil Escobedo the title rep, Hal Rose the billion-dollar apartment loan provider as well as I would certainly fulfill as soon as a month at the par 3 Los Feliz Golf Course to play nine holes and have breakfast. I was discovering the market from the most effective. They educated me concerning household, stability and implementation. Gil was a normal at my family parties, always in the kitchen lovely the ladies, my mom included.
Gil was old-fashioned. He came to every Link occasion. I constantly offered him a compensation, yet he insisted on paying. However, he declined to use his bank card in worry of having his number endangered online, so he would bring a handwritten talk to him every single time. I still have a collection of those checks due to the fact that I never paid them.
Just a title representative that I constantly desired resemble. I will miss his smile as well as his awful putting!
I like this market and also the people in it. Please remain risk-free. I desire to see you all soon.
