Alexandra Erman recommends Kiva Rhodes

I just closed this morning the sale of my house and Chicago title and team have been incredible. Everything was simple, smooth and seamless. They worked in a super timely manner, always explaining what I needed to understand, answering promptly. Their cloud based system is great, everything online, they also sent me a mobile notary for signatures. I never had to worry about anything, I know how much work it is on the back end and i want to thank them for a super stress free experience.

Curt Schultz recommends Rebecca Skipper

Rebecca Skipper was great, had a quick escrow, I know they were short handed but she worked us in, closed 5 days early and it only took 9 days. None of the agents, principles and brokers had an issue with the service. We all were very pleased

Cam Kwong recommends Rebecca Skipper

I have worked with Rebecca over the last decade on various real estate transactions. This last transaction was the most complex in regards to the deed history of the property. Rebecca was patient with the process, clear in her communication and helped solve and cleared up this issue so that the sale of the property was not delayed. I would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca and her team.

Andrea Gordon recommends Dean A Thomas


Dean Thomas is the very best Escrow and Title rep I have worked with in over 24 years in the business. He has literally gone the extra mile to make sure my transactions flowed smoothly, that sellers had proper net sheets, that plat maps made sense out in the real world, that any issues that have come up relating to title have been cleared efficiently and painlessly. I love Chicago Title and all the people I get to work with there, and Dean Stands out as responsive, kind, smart, and is just a super nice guy on top of it all. Five stars!
