There is no one better to have on your 'team' than Rapunzel. For those occasions when something unusual comes up--she has the knowledge and confidence to get it worked out. And for the smooth sailing deals, there is no one more enjoyable to meet up with at the signing!

Dean is quick to respond when we have any inquiries or questions. I have confidence in him when I open an escrow with his company and know that he and his team will take care of it. Dean has been fantastic and I will continue to ask him to open escrow for my future transactions.

Candice Economides recommends Rapunzel Martinez

I have used Rapunzel and her team@ Chicago Title for many years. I depend on her knowledge,experience, and consciousness for every detail. This transaction required interfacing with the University of California at Berkeley's MOP program. When I told the MOP loan officer that Rapunzel and her team were going to be in charge of this escrow, she was beyond delighted. We have a very crazy market right now, and having someone like Rapunzel makes all the twists and turns of any transaction seem effortless. She is our "go-to" Escrow officer.

Shelly McMillen and her team were fantastic! We had unforeseen timing issues receiving documents putting our close in jeopardy. Shelly and her team went above and beyond to rush prepare necessary documents and do an early morning signing to get it closed on time. I was very pleased with the level of service and professionalism from Shelly. Very pleasant and responsive which made all the difference in a stressful situation. Highly recommended!
