Jennifer and her team have been wonderful to work with. They are professional, prompt, and very curteous. I have been a Broker for 22 years and Jennifer has been one of the best escrow officiers I have delt with. Additionally, our firm handles commercial and residential transactions and it's very beneficial having her expertise in both!

Jennifer came through for us in a big way. We had a very quick one week close. She was able to get it done, thoroughly, in one of the busiest real estate climates Austin has seen.

I would like to say that through the past 30 years in the insurance business I have worked with a lot of title companies and been involved is numerious closings. Non of the transactions have been as smooth, professional and handled as well as those I have done with Jennifer and Tabitha. They addressed all the possible pitfalls and concerns before I even had time to consider them and came through in every area of the closing, which made it a very pleasurable experience. If I have my choice I will not use anyother closer for my real estate transactions.

Jennifer and her team are very efficient in coordinating and closing sales. The title company's role is such a huge part of real estate and the way a title company conducts and coordinates all the necessary tasks and roles does have a huge impact on the stress, or lack there of, for the buyers, sellers, and their agents. While I have encountered both ends of the spectrum at title companies over the years, Jennifer and Tabitha are a well run team that make the process appear seamless.

Jennifer has been my go to for more years than I can remember! She always goes beyond the regular Jo description of a closer. I tell people " she has my back". Jennifer has great insights and catches things early if there is a potential issue. She remains calm during stressful closing a and always kind to difficult clients ( and I have had some). Tabitha is great support and they are an excellent team.

Our transaction was a one of a kind challenge, it was a flip from a tax foreclosure with the seller being over seas and a power of attorney..... Jennifer Pedersen handled everything with the utmost professionalism and made it really easy for everyone else. Thanks Jennifer, we will see you again.

Jennifer Pedersen and her team are fantastic. Every transaction I have had with her has been smooth because she already has solutions to problems that arise the moment they come up. I feel confident that with a single phone call to Jennifer I can have a resolution to any issue that shows up during the course of a transaction quickly, both ordinary and extraordinary in nature. There are just people out there who get things done...Jennifer is a person who just gets it done. She's a true pro. I recommend her and Chicago Title Austin to all of my friends, family, and colleagues. I am looking forward to working with her again soon!

We had a very quick closing on a cash purchase of a town home, less than 4 weeks. There was a hiccup in getting the HOA documents, but Jennifer & Tabitha took care of it. The buyer and sellers never knew the difference. Both my client & I felt we were in good hands with Jennifer.

I wanted to comment on how much I appreciate Jennifer Pederson and Tabitha Jacobs service in handling my closings. Both of them are amazing in terms of their incredibly fast response. Both Jennifer Pederson and her assistant Tabitha Jacobs are solution oriented, they look ahead to anticipate issues and then solve them. Their professionalism and extremely fast response makes the entire process incredibly smooth. Jennifer and Tabitha both are fantastic at reaching out to all the individuals and service providers involved in closing a loan and making everything so smooth without a hickup. This is I think my 6th closing with Chicago Title working with Jennifer and Tabitha and I am very glad I have them on my team!

It would be an honor to provide a letter of recommendation for Jennifer Pederson.

Over the last 10 years or so I have closed numerous transactions with Jennifer acting as a principal and as a broker. For the most part, the only thing that differentiates title companies from one another is the level of service. Jennifer and her staff are over-the-top in that category. Ninety-nine percent of the time, Jennifer is available to take my phone call or she emails me back within a very short period of time.

More importantly, Jennifer really knows her stuff. On several occasions when I was forced to escrow a transaction at another title company and there was a question on an issue and the closer didn't know or care to find out the answer, I relied on Jennifer to assist me.....even though the closing was at a different title company.

I can't say enough good things about Jennifer. In the world of real estate where there are lots of variables that have to line-up for the transaction to be successful, Jennifer brings consistently and a level of professionalism that distinguishes her from everyone else in the title business.

I would recommend her, and I do, to everyone I know.
