Johanna Sicat founded Icon Escrow to create a technology-savvy company that continually provides outstanding, personalized customer service throughout the entire escrow lifecycle. Having grown up in her family’s escrow business, Johanna’s business model is built upon her strong industry acumen and her family-oriented approach to leadership.
Growing up in Southern California, Johanna learned best practices relating to real estate, lending, and escrow by supporting her parents’ small business. She graduated from USC with a degree in Economics before starting her career as a financial consultant. After successfully establishing a foundation in the financial sector, Johanna decided to return to her professional roots, so she obtained her Real Estate Broker’s license and supported clients throughout Southern California.
After settling in Los Angeles, Johanna identified key needs relating to the escrow side of LA’s fast-paced, high-end real estate market. She realized an opportunity to establish a company that was more on the cutting edge of the business. Since escrow is an integral part of the real estate process, she knew this sector needed to evolve with the times. While Johanna incorporates the latest technology to streamline operations, foundational to her approach is the human element.
As a servant leader, Johanna nurtures and challenges her team to succeed and grow. As a client-focused business owner, she built Icon to provide a seamless process; Johanna believes in efficient, clear communications to reduce the stress that can accompany the real estate process. The client’s experience reflects Icon’s relationship-oriented culture as well as Johanna’s commitment to creating a supportive work environment that enables all to thrive. She knows that by providing great client experience and team support, success will follow.
