We recently closed a construction loan with Charissa and she was a pleasure to work with. She made an extra effort to accommodate our signing schedule and the loan closed with no hitches. She was very professional and easy to work with.
Thanks Charissa!

I met Charissa through my realtor. I buy and sell real estate 3-4 times a year. There are so many things that can go wrong with a contract, or a property or even a personality. That brings me to why I enjoy seeing Charissa at the finish line. No mistakes, complete confidence, in other words I can breath a sigh of relief. Have I met with lots of Escrow Officers in the past? I have, and that's why I see Charissa every time!

I recently purchased a second home and had the pleasure with working with Charissa Cooley. Closing can be a very stressful experience and it makes a world of difference having someone who can ease the stress. Charissa was great throughout the process. She was very knowledgeable, timely, and professional. She always updated me promptly and kept me ahead of every step of the way. I would highly recommend her to friends, family, and coworkers. Thanks!

This was my first time using Charissa and she exceeded all expectations. She's hard working, on top of things, and detail oriented. Even after the sale closed she was available to help me fix a minor detail. I'll definitely consider using her in the future.

Charissa does a great job start to finish. I know I can always count on her. She helps solve problems, not create them. At the signing table she is friendly & efficient, a winning combination. I love it when I get the opportunity to work with Charissa Cooley!

Charissa is a master communicator. Every bit of the process was clearly and concisely discussed and my wife and I were never in the dark. When it came time to sign, Charissa got us through the process amazingly fast while expertly summarizing each document and answering our questions. I highly recommend her services.

Charissa did a great job for us. The home we sold is in Beaverton, OR. We live in Sacramento. Charissa dealt with all the details expertly and was extremely helpful in navigating OR tax requirements. Thanks for doing a great job.

Charissa (aka Wonder Woman in disguise) was terrific in guiding us through the closing process. She was friendly, organized, articulate and willing to go into as much or as little detail as we wanted. We could not have asked for more!!

Charissa was prompt, courteous, and informative throughout the process. It was a 1031 exchange, so a little more complicated in regard to funding and such. Good job!

Charissa and her team are always an absolute pleasure to work with. Charissa is always available for any questions/concerns that my clients have. She keeps us all up to date on the status of our transactions, and always provides us with options to troubleshoot any hold ups that come our way. She communicates quickly, respectfully and professionally at all times. My favorite part of working with Charissa is she always has a wonderful and upbeat attitude! Charissa is amazing!

Charissa did a great job of keeping us informed and up to date on the transaction. Since we're located in Texas, we were not able to meet with Charissa or attend the closing in Oregon. However, Charissa was very patient with all our requests and arranged for a mobile notary to handle our end of the closing transaction.
I would definitely recommend Charissa Cooley and Chicago Title of Portland for any future business transactions.
