are title and escrow companies one in the same ?

I am looking for a title & escrow company however I am not sure if they are all in one , so to speak

Howdy Kimbella:

An escrow agent will hold the escrow money for all parties and make sure it is properly returned to the rightful party and generally requires all parties to agree and to sign a release form, all parties also including real estate agents a lot of times. The title company will also act as escrow agent as well. They are not actually one in the same but for all practical purposes they are when dealing with houses.


;Dthank you ,
