Our realtor took care of all of this for us even the inspection and final walk through. Couldn't have been easier.

And the reason you are posting here and not on the phone with your real estate agent?

We closed on our first home, newly built by mail. No problems.

We have walked through homes for friends who were going to close remotely. No problems.


Hurry and come and live with all of us. You won't ever regret it.

If the money is in escrow, then it is being held by the escrow company, not by the realtor. The escrow company is an independent third party with fiduciary responsibilities. If the check was cashed, then you should be able to get a copy of it from your bank and see who cashed it. You can call the escrow company and they should be able to tell you whatever you want to know about your check and how the funds will be handled by them.
