Mark Fuller recommends Liz Paglinawan

VP of Finance, Controller

Liz Paglinawan is an amazing professional! On average, I've moved and bought/sold houses every six years during my career. I've never worked with an escrow officer that begins to approach the skill level and efficiency of Liz. When we sold our house recently, the buyer wanted to close in week's time; a seemingly impossible task with me traveling the entire time. But nothing phases Liz, she took control, got everything prepared, and even managed to find someone to meet me on the road to sign documents! And never before did I feel as well informed regarding the status of the transaction and the process to be managed as I did with Liz. She is highly organized and tremendously efficient. I don't want to buy and sell properties more often that I already do, but if I did, I'd like Liz managing the escrow process on every one of them! She's the best!

Liz did a fabulous job with the escrow we had at 180 Saint Elmo in San Francisco. It was a tricky transaction, but she stayed right on top of every step to get it done on time. I would highly recommend using Liz for any escrow needs.

Liz is an excellent escrow officer. She is not only a pleasure to work with, but is thorough and detail oriented. The paperwork to close escrow was done in a timely fashion and she is very accommodating when scheduling appointments to fit into your schedule. I highly recommend Liz as an escrow person to work with.

Rodney C Stacker recommends Liz Paglinawan

Senior Network Engineer

I very much appreciate the time and dedication Liz took to explain the ins and outs of escrow. I didn't know what to expect this being my first encounter with purchasing a house. Liz reassure me the process isn't as difficult as I has thought.
She explained each form in detail that required my signature. In laymen terms this simplified the process for me.

Liz I can't thank you enough for a job well done. I would highly recommend Liz for anyone look for an Escrow Officer.

Eric Banner recommends Liz Paglinawan

Regional Director

My family and I enjoyed working with Liz as she was extremely knowledgeable, patient and above all enthusiastic. While document signing can be a long and less then exciting process, Liz worked diligently through the pages pausing on the most important areas to highlight. Beyond "signing-day" Liz far exceeded our expectations. She pro-actively kept us informed and always remained enthusiastic. As an Escrow officer, Liz is uniquely positioned closest to the buyers bank with knowledge on what may be happening behind the scenes. In this way Liz kept us apprised of the transaction status and assurances of its positive outcome. I highly recommend Liz Paglinawan

Enrique J. Gutierrez recommends Liz Paglinawan

Principal Engineer - Delta Air Lines

We have become accustomed to the absence of professionalism, curtesy, kindness, and intelligence in so many aspects of today's "modern" world. I am here to tell anyone that when it comes to PEOPLE, I was taken aback by Liz Paglinawan. She is the anthesis of a world in chaos. In so far as an escrow officer, you will not find a person as knowledgeable, diligent, professional, courteous and more caring about the client than Liz. She exists for one reason to ensure you leave without one iota of doubt as to the sum of documents you have signed, She will leave you feeling at ease knowing that she has your best interest at heart. I need not find any other Escrow Officer...ever! Thank you Liz. Never change you are a Diamond serving the public.

M&A Advisor

We just closed escrow on our house in San Francisco. It was incredibly fast and Liz did an amazing job keeping us on task and managing the process with professionalism and kindness. She even provided us some great referrals. If we only owned another house in San Francisco we would love to work with Liz again. Thanks so much Liz, you're the best!

William Molarius recommends Gail Gaffney

Escrow Officer

I have worked for many managers and supervisors throughout my 20+ year career. I have never found a person who invests in their employees like Gail does. Not only does she provide the training and skills for me to succeed by keeping all employees up to date on their training but Gail also challenges her employees to find a balance between work and life. She even encourages the office to have events to help relieve the stress this industry provides. She is not my superior - she is my equal and, with that type of environment, she has been there for me as an employee when my parents passed away. She knows how to walk a line very well as she always encourages us to be successful but also to be happy. By far Gail is the best manager. She is not only concerned about the bottom line. If we have a bad month she speaks with us on how we have an opportunity next month. We have never failed with Gail, we have just not yet reached our full potential. I would recommend her to everyone and anyone. I speak about her to my colleagues and they cannot believe there is a manager like Gail.

Denise L recommends Liz Paglinawan


Liz provided extradianary communication during the escrow process. She was reassuring when the lender requested "more time" which delayed an already exhaustingly long sales process. Liz returned calls, answered all my questions, and followed-up after escrow closed to make sure all was well with me. I highly recommend Liz.

Maria M. Abbott recommends Gail Gaffney

sales associate

I met Gail in 1989 when I went to Fidelity to open my first escrow. She has been my "go to" person ever since. Her sense of responsibility, her loyalty to her clients and her dependability, are reflected in her support crew at all Fidelity offices. I always know that I can count on my title officer to alert me of any possible problems, with enough time to avert disaster. I can also count on excellent service and the utmost professionalism from her title officers. Given the choice, I always go to Fidelity. I know that Gail is behind the scenes making sure that I close my deals.

James Stuart recommends Gail Gaffney

Sales Representative

Gail has been a wonderful county manager to work with over the years. I find her very resourceful, creative, and helpful in her management position. She cares about her people, our customers, and the company we work for! Gail has probably one of the toughest positions in the company, wearing many hats, tackling lots of different tasks, and running our company operations day to day. I value Gail’s efforts, leadership, and thankful to be working with her!

Sam Saravia recommends Gail Gaffney

AVP, Escrow Officer

Gail has been instrumental in my growth as well those around me. We met in 2001. When I joined Fidelity, a lot more was changing in my life: I was getting married, buying a home, opening a branch for the company, and the County Manager I came to work for was leaving and Gail was coming - a change I dreaded at another company... BUT

I quickly learned there was no reason for my concern as Gail immediately demonstrated how capable she was - I noticed she knew the San Francisco operation backwards and forward, she started her career here, like me! She executed change with confidence. She even showed me how well she knew my job on a complicated escrow the first week we met! I was impressed from that moment and have grown to admire her leadership.

As I've gotten to know her, I've realized the depth of her passion for

President, Zephyr Real Estate

I've worked with Gail for nearly 30 years. I've watched her grow within her company based on great performance and reliability. I feel that I can always rely on her to help solve the difficult issues that sometimes come up. She is a pleasure to work with and I hope Fidelity realizes what a great asset she is to the company.

Suhl Chin recommends Liz Paglinawan

Realtor, Zephyr Real Estate

I just finished my first escrow with Liz and it was a fantastic experience. Loan docs were late getting to title and Liz met with my clients as soon as she got into the office at 8:15, hustled to get the docs to the lender and the loan funded later that morning. Liz's close relationship with the funding officer helped to ensure that all went smoothly. Liz is a consummate professional who is unflappable in a crisis. She is one of the best in her profession!

Thomas Cashin recommends Liz Paglinawan


Liz managed our escrow this month and did a remarkable job. Closings in the Bay Area are fast paced and ours was ridiculously fast. Liz leveraged her relationships and went above and beyond to ensure we signed and recorded on the same day! Her efforts enabled us to take possession three days earlier than projected and allowed us to avoid requesting an extension from the seller. Liz is a true professional.

She is in my opinion in the uppermost tier of the best of the best of all of San Francisco Escrow Officers. I highly recommend her and Fidelity National Title for a flawless transaction.
