Liz exemplifies the true meaning of customer service. She is extremely knowledgable, and beyond that, incredibly quick to respond to all communications. I highly recommend hiring Liz and plan to work with her again in the future.

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.

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

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.

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!

Liz went more than the extra mile to insure that we closed under a very tight contract with a buyer and seller. We could not have done it without her!!! Thanks for saving the day and saving the deal!

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.

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!

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.

I have had the pleasure of working with Liz on multiple occasions. Each and every time I have found her to be incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, experienced, accurate, tireless and personable! 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.

Liz Paglinawan was the escrow officer for the home we just purchased. It was not an easy close as there were many omissions and mis-steps by the lending institution. Were it not for Liz, we would have had a delayed close by several days. She caught several errors, she followed up daily (often twice daily) with the bank, she went above and beyond in hours (working late as well), and she kept us informed all the way. She knows what she is doing--her experience and success record demonstrate that well. I highly recommend Liz as an escrow officer to anyone.

Liz is amazing. She was super responsive to a time sensitive situation. When we ere up against a very tight deadline, Liz extended her help beyond her "normal" work hours and literally busted her butt to get us closed on time. She saved the day and her professionalism, thoroughness, and dedication to completing a job is unparalleled. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for efficiency, dedication and a great personality.

Liz was great to work with, especially as first-time home buyers. She was super responsive on phone and email, and extremely accommodating when we signed our paperwork. Liz hustles to get the job done and is very thorough in her work. We're very appreciative of her assistance and definitely recommend Liz.

We have worked with Liz multiple times within the past couple months. Our escrows have all required immediacy and accuracy due to their complexity and we surely have Liz to thank for pulling everything together! We have been so happy with the way Liz has handled all of our transactions with incredible detail, making sure that the hundreds of small details were accurate and complete. And handling everyone with such a calming friendliness. She has been a joy to work with and we recommend her highly.

Last week we closed a transaction in which I was the buyers' broker. Liz Paglinawan was the title officer who handled the transaction. The best way I can characterize the professionalism, attention to detail, and readiness of Liz to take care of anything that arose in the course of the transaction, is with this one word: superb!

It was a great pleasure working with her. Unlike of title officers I have dealt with over the years, she was unflappable, pleasant, and ever-helpful to me and to my clients. Frankly, I cannot wait to do another transaction with her office. In this world of ratings, she justly deserves an A++.

Very satisfied homeowner
I highly recommend Liz. She was professional, experienced and very helpful. We had a complicated house sale that required a 7 day close. Liz went beyond the call of duty to ensure that we closed on time. I have nothing but great things to say about Liz. She gets the job done!

Liz provided excellent service when we sold our home in San Francisco. She accommodated our demands, even with a last minute change, without any hesitation while simultaneously being organized, courteous and patient. Her handling of our close, under a very aggressive timeline, was seamless. She worked with our agent to make what could have been a difficult process very smooth, particularly since we were out of town.

I would recommend her services to anyone.

Thank you Liz.

Liz Paglinawan is on top of it. Our escrow had a lot of moving parts and date changes due to an aggressive nuisance litigation over 5 weeks. At every step she provided reassurance and had an answer, or got one quickly, to every question and curveball. When it was (finally) time to close, she made it happen quickly. Well done and THANK YOU Liz!

Having been through a few house closings now, there always seem to be loose ends that need to be taken care of in the last couple of days. Liz was great in getting us through those. She was on top of the paperwork and actively working with all parties to ensure the closing was completed on time. In the end, her hard work and preparation helped us to get through close and make our move in day!
