I will add to the growing accolades honoring Liz and her amazing abilities. Our close was an unusually complicated one due to a loan on the property in addition to the mortgage. Liz navigated this minefield with grace and expertise dealing with multiple challenges, many of which were above and beyond a normal closing transaction. She worked diligently with the the multiple parties on the selling side to make sure that all the i's were dotted and the t's were crossed. Being the consummate professional that she is, Liz did everything that was required to close this property and accomplished all this with a 14 day close!! Amazing work Liz.
I am sure there are a lot of wonderful escrow officers out there, but I can't imagine anyone better than Liz.

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.

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.

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.
