Charissa did a great job on a challenging closing. She kept us informed and updated regularly, worked with all parties to gather the needed information to stay on track and kept the transaction moving forward when it could have gone sideways. I appreciate her good humor and willingness to go above and beyond to make the transaction a good experience for all parties involved.

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!

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 (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!
