Liz is an incredibly experienced Escrow Officer who makes it her priority to ensure her clients clearly understand all stages and communications involved with the escrow process. As a first time homebuyer, it is easily to feel intimidated by the amount of jargon, or unclear on how each step of the process is orchestrated, but you are in fantastic hands with Liz. Moreover, Liz is one of the most responsive people I've worked with - she's there on email and phone, and doesn't leave you or other partners in the mix hanging. Thank you!

Liz was amazing from start to finish of our escrow/closing process! Right from the moment we needed to put a deposit down, she called me and explained the process and ensured all wire instructions would come from her/how to avoid fraud. Throughout the process, any question or email I sent would be answered within minutes with an email or call. Whenever the process hit a speed bump from any party, Liz would leap into action immediately and solve the problem herself, reaching out directly to lenders, insurers, etc. Can't say enough how much she powered us through the close – that level of speed and attention to detail is huge for a first time or experience buyer alike. Liz is great!

It was a true pleasure to work with Escrow Officer Liz Paglinawan during the process my wife and I recently went through to buy a home in San Francisco. We very strongly recommend Liz as a knowledgeable and highly talented professional.

It’s easy for buyers in San Francisco’s tough real estate market to become discouraged by the stresses encountered during the process of buying a home. However, when you have someone like Liz Paglinawan working with you those challenges are readily managed, and, ultimately, transactions are completed safely and efficiently. Liz made an effort to meet me personally as all necessary paperwork was assembled, ensured that efficient and accurate communications with realtors and financial institutions occurred on schedule and was highly vigilant and careful to confirm safe and successful wire transfers of funds. Finally, she guided us through our document signing meeting with concise and informative input every step of the way.

In summary, Liz Paglinawan helped us immensely in our real estate transaction by demonstrating extremely effective skills in executing and communicating the many details of closing escrow. She did that with her warm and friendly good nature and her abundance of expert knowledge. The fantastic work Liz completed really helped relieve some of the pressure and stress associated with buying our home. Thanks Liz ! We can’t recommend you highly enough !

Liz was the title officer for our first house purchase and we really lucked out having her. She is detailed oriented, thoughtful, caring, patient and so easy to work with. She goes out of her way to make sure we are comfortable with all the paper work and understand what's going on because as first time buyers, we had loads of questions. I would highly recommend Liz because of her professionalism, her work ethics and caring nature.

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.

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.
