Charissa made it trivial to get through the escrow process, booking and then cancelling and then rebooking couriers based on my shifting understanding of the resources I had available, all in the same day! Quick, professional, and effective.

Charissa Cooley was very accommodating when we were at the signing and my buyer's lender was needing further bank documentation. We had to have the info faxed (Who uses this? Banks do! ) and luckily she had one for the bank to send to. She scanned and faxed info to the lender/ everything went fine. Thanks to her efforts we did not have to extend closing, preventing many nervous breakdowns. She was great at tracking down invoices and broker demands and being a great hub to many spokes!

Charissa did an excellent job in coordinating the closing of a sale for us recently. We had several co-owners who live out of state and she efficiently facilitated communication with them and their eventual signing of documents. We appreciated her regular communication and prompt reponses to our inquiries. At closing she explained each document to our satisfaction. Charissa has the admirable combination of a friendly personality and a high level of competence. I am happy to recommend her for your real estate transaction needs.

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!
