Kelsey Schaber

Escrow Officer Chicago Title Lloyd Center
I realize what an exciting, yet stressful experience home buying can be, that's why my customers can count on being informed every step of the way. At the signing table, they will be made to feel comfortable and excited! For me, this is where the "real magic" happens. Because I get the opportunity to make your buyer or seller walk away happy in the knowledge that they just made one of the biggest AND best financial decisions of their life, and in turn, that makes me happy.

From my humble beginnings as a receptionist right out of college, to my current position as an escrow closer, I have worked hard to get where I am today. My expertise ranges from mobile homes to investment properties, and everything in between. With a decade of experience under my belt, I have the knowledge and expertise to make sure your transaction closes without a hitch.

A lifelong Oregonian, I am proud to work and live here. Whether it's trying out the newest restaurant in town, or enjoying a favorite hike in the Gorge, I love all the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

I look forward to working with you!

Sr. Escrow Assistant
I had the pleasure of being Kelsey's escrow assistant for two fantastic years, and only left my role as her assistant due to getting engaged and moving away from Portland. Having assisted a dozen escrow officers in my career, I can empathically say that Kelsey was by far the best I've worked with. Being a great escrow officer requires a quick mind, excellent communication, attention to detail, an ability to adapt to last minute changes, and stellar customer service. The honest truth is that most escrow officers possess some (but not all) of these traits.

Kelsey is not most escrow officers. She is constantly working hard behind the scenes to make transactions as smooth and seamless as possible for her clients. She is often two steps ahead of where most escrow officers would be on a transaction, with the vision to see how the entire transaction will play out, not just the next step. What stands out most about Kelsey, however, is her positive attitude and genuine willingness to help not only her clients but everyone in her life. There is no façade with Kelsey, no smoke and mirrors to impress clients. What you see is what you get - genuine, honest service with a smile.

Transaction Coordinator @ THINK
Well, I grant you that I've only been at this for a short time,
but I have worked with a boat-load of different agents and she
is truly and honestly the best of the bunch.

Kelsey is very quick to respond, gives well communicated responses, is always
ready to meet our needs, and is very personable.

She is the gem of the Escrow world!

Kelsey is awesome! I really appreciate her low key manner, and her ready availability and timeliness when returning phone calls and emails. She does not make "loose" promises and is able to explain the hard work she does in lay terms, which is helpful to many of my first time buyers. Plus she is just darn pleasant!
Thanks Kelsey!

Kelsey was great. Had very good communication throughout and made sure everything was in order for a smooth transaction. We had an issue at close with the lender and she was prompt to reach out and keep me informed then worked with the lender to get it taken care of asap.

Kelsey was a pleasure to work with. She was patient with all of our questions and communicated, promptly, with details follow up and recommendations. With Kelsey we always knew where we were in the process, what to expect next and what our plan was if things were to change direction. My home buyers and myself are grateful and so happy to have shared this experience with Kelsey!

Kelsey S. at Chicago Title did everything necessary to professionally and quickly create, and complete, an escrow account on my recent home sale in Portland Oregon. She answered every question quickly and professionally, and her sense of humor made every transaction a delight. I do not hesitate to recommend Kelsey Schaber, and Chicago Title, in Portland OR! Great work. - Jennifer L., Portland OR

Kelsey caught a huge error on the closing documents, which saved my Sellers a lot of time and effort. I really enjoyed working with her on the buyers' side, so I chose to partner with her on my next listing, too. She was very communicative and a pleasure to work with on both deals.
