No live TMs for escrow, it's a generic term and widely used

Escrow is a generic keyword, and escrow services have existed long before Escrow.com did.

I am not really a .PRO fan but this is a solid keyword. No clue on value though.

tm issue for dictionary word?

Just remember, words like "Apple" and "Orange" are dictionary words too but are trademarked

Yes, for a non-generic use. A TM by Apple for selling apples is obviously not enforceable.
Escrow is a generic service related term. A TM is not going to be able to block the generic use.

The TM listed is a non-generic related use.

Absolutely Brad, but all I'm trying to get across is its probably not a good idea to start a business in direct competition with the TM holder
