Donna Ziakas

Escrow Officer Chicago Title - Downtown Residential, San Jose
I have been in escrow for 25 years. My mom got me started way back in 1985. She was an escrow officer so you could say escrow is in my genes. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from San Jose University and a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from Lincoln Law School. I have also achieved the Certified and Senior Certified Escrow Officer designations from the California Escrow Association.

In the workplace, what is paramount to me is customer service. I believe in going above and beyond to be certain my customers are truly satisfied with my service.

It was a great experience working with Donna. She was very professional, personable and patient. She always called or wrote back immediately and tried to accommodate my and my clients needs. My transaction coordinators also praised her professionalism, saying that was one of the easiest and smoothest transactions.

After Donna, I had another transaction with another escrow officer, who never called back, took my call in person, wrote in a full sentence.

The great escrow officer makes a big difference. I would love to work with her again! I recommend her to anyone.

I loved working with Donna and her team. They were so responsive professional and kind through every single one of my escrows and I try to write them into contract with each new transaction. I'm so glad Mike Devlin referred me to them. Nothing like having a responsive, smart and committed escrow team to help you through your transactions. You can't go wrong with Donna!

I have worked with Donna for many years. She is very professional and
knowledgeable; whenever I need to know anything about guidelines or
just how to handle a realestate transaction involving escrow; Donna takes
the time to make sure I understand what is needed and/or just give me
advice. Donna also has a wonderful assistant Phuong Nguyen. It truly is wonderful to have such a great business working friendship. Donna is
a awesome person; I look forward to many more years working with her.

Donna did the good job in my transaction. Very polite and went extra miles to close the transaction I will use her next time and recommend her to other realtors too.

Donna was easy to work with and responsive. She handled the sale twice when the first one fell through and guided her client through the process of unwinding an escrow. She graciously accommodated our ultimate need for an out of area signing and made sure everyone was in place to make that happen. Thank you Donna for a great job!
