Do you understand your title documents? Well, Charissa Cooley can explain each form, reference the text (reading upside down), and notarize simultaneously. She can also answer questions in plain language. We highly recommend her for your title / escrow needs!

I've recently had the pleasure to work with Charissa and I am very grateful for all of her assistance. She helped me get through a 203k rehab buyer in a very timely manner. Excellent communication and her persistence helped motivate people that needed help being motivated. I plan to work with her again and highly recommend her to others.

Charissa was thorough, explained everything I had questions about, and had to do extra work at the last minute to allow everything to be recorded the same day we signed.

Whenever I hit a bump in the road or I had a question, she was unfailling responsive with the information I needed to keep moving forward. She streamlined the signing process and made it simple and straightforward. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I now have a better understanding of how some of the things happen in the sale of a piece of property. In my case... it's all because of this lady, Charissa Cooley. She has been wonderful to work with and I couldn't have had a more professional individual assisting me through the process. Once again... thank you Charissa!

Charisss was great to work with in the sale of our house. She was prompt with information, and was clear in what she could and couldn't advise us about. And in the areas where she could, she was informed and helpful. And she was very tolerant of my delays as I worked through tough questions about taxes and documents.

Charissa was excellent to work with as a seller and buyer. On the day of closing she gave us regular updates on both homes as we progressed through each stage which we had not experienced with our prior home purchase. Would gladly use her again

I recently had a very positive experience working with Charissa on the sale of our home. The unique thing about it was that it was located in Oregon and we were now living in Maine. I was wrongly under the impression that I would need to fly out to Oregon, hire an attorney to finalize the sale of the home. The selling agent informed me that they used the services of the Chicago Title Company and that there wasn't a need to go to Oregon or hire an attorney. When we received a bid the day we placed the house on the market I received an email the next day from Charissa with the set of steps we need to follow to complete all the transactions. She also arranged for a Notary to come to our new home in Maine to go over the final paperwork for our signatures.

During the process before the Notary arrived I had a few questions for Charissa. She answered them completely and made sure I was comfortable with the answers. I would highly recommend Charissa Cooley and the Chicago Title Company. It took only a month from when we received the bid to the close and everything went without a hitch in the process.
