This was a complex transaction involving a buyer in Beijing. We had to be fast, connected, global. Angela and Melissa of Chicago Title in Cupertino were all these things and so much more. Wherever I'm doing a transaction in the Bay Area I'm gonna push for escrow to be held with CTT. Thank you guys so much for making this work as well as it did!

are very professional and helpful. Our lender experienced a little rush in the last minutes and my client were worried about not being closed timely. But, Melissa and Angela are very responsive and try their best to help us. I do appreciate their professionalism, can-do attitude and patience.

Melissa was great to work with. She was on top of everything from the beginning of the transaction all the way to the sign off. I appreciated her taking the time to make sure my buyers understood what they were signing. She made them feel very comfortable with the process and they left her office feeling a lot less stressed out.

I will definitely work with her in the future and refer her to my clients and co-workers.

Thank you Melissa.

Melissa was very professional and timely. She answered emails very quickly, even after hours. Melissa obtained all required disclosures, especially from HOA, which can be difficult. She gives really good advice, and I really enjoyed working with her. I will absolutely continue working with her in the future, and will be recommending other realtors to work with her.

I enjoyed working with Melissa. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, she was on top of things. She replies to her emails quickly, answers all our questions, and was impactful in getting out loan to closing earlier than expected. My fulfillment team seemed able to coordinate with Melissa in a flash. Our borrower was extremely happy. Plus, her emails even exude good vibes. Definitely grateful that we have her as a part of this process.
