Amy was our escrow officer, and did a wonderful job of communicating, and of letting us know exactly what to do and when. The escrow went flawlessly, even when we had a last-minute change in order to accommodate a 1031 exchange.
Aside from that, there were zero bumps, and the escrow closed on time. Amy is a great communicator, and easy to work with.
We highly recommend her.

Real Estate Broker
Amy recently closed my first sale here in Portland. While I've been in the business for many years, I was unfamiliar with some of the differences here in Portland. Amy provided all the information I needed, and more, the transaction was not particularly complicated, but she attended to every detail and was always immediately available to answer any questions. Wonderful start in Portland!!

Amy was very helpful. She was knowledgeable and quick to respond with answers to my many questions. This sale fell through twice before finally going closing, but Amy was very patient with my anxiety and many, many questions during this process.

Home Buyer
Amy has actually helped me twice in the home buying process. Both times she was beyond courteous and helpful with the whole process. Although I did go through the process twice, I can't say I really knew everything that I was doing, there is a lot of info. Amy was very careful to make sure I understood everything and her vast knowledge was presented in a way that I could understand and feel comfortable with this huge purchase. Thank you.

Amy oversaw the documents signing for the sale of our house. She was patient, knowledgeable and was happy to explain even the most mundane details of the transaction. The signing went quickly and I left her office having a much better grasp than when I went in.

My daughter Abby and her husband Brett just bought their first home. Amy did an outstanding job from beginning to end. She was extremely good at communicating every step of the transaction and proactively worked on items which had she not be so aware about, might have slowed things down. We closed this transaction within 30 days and with Amy and her team completely on top of it, the sale progressed seamlessly! We highly recommend Amy to handle your next escrow!

Amy answered all my questions with patience, even when I didn't understand part of the process and was frustrated.

Signing was a breeze and done quickly.

Amy was great and made my home purchase easy. She was able to fax at the last minute the docs over to my lender so that I could take possession of my house a day early. A huge life saver! She's knowledgeable, personable, and very friendly. I highly recommend her.
Thanks Amy! :)

Amy has done a outstanding job keeping me posted through out the transactions. Even though I can't see her while talking to her on the phone, I feel like she is smiling. She does a great job of keeping all the details straight. In a business where stress runs rampant she always keeps it cool. Making every one she comes in contact with day a little better.

I have had the opportunity to work with Amy and her great group of co-workers in the past few years after we sold some rental properties. Most recently, she helped us with a sale in June of 2017 and the process couldn't have gone any smoother or more seamless. She was available to answer any questions and the response time was more than impressive. I always seek out excellent customer service and will go out of my way to find it. I found that with Amy and everyone at Chicago Title. The office was convenient as well. I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Amy again in the future and I would highly recommend her.
