Maryann is a true pleasure to work with. Recently, I had clients surprise switch to a 1031 exchange the day of closing. Maryann pulled everything together and got it done seamlessly and recorded within 24 hours. I would highly recommend her!

David A Pringle recommends Rene Ayers

Rene is amazing! Aside from walking me through the Chicago Title tools (which are incredible) he was enjoyable to spend time with and educated me on things that I was not aware of... Genuinely enthusiastic about what he does, he also, made me feel like I was his only client, focused on me and what I needed to know right now.
I can not say enough good about Rene.... If you don't know him, you should....

Elizabeth Dini recommends Rene Ayers


Since I began in Real Estate, Rene has always been there to help. He routinely stops by the office to check in face-to-face and ask if there is anything he can do to help. But it goes beyond just stopping by the office, when I do ask for help, he is quick to respond and deliver. He is friendly, personable, professional and easy to work with. Thanks Rene!!!

Rene helped me out with getting my farm started. As a new agent I wasn't familiar with the process and he helped me dial into a specific market I was looking for. Thanks Rene!

Rene has been invaluable to me with escrows. He's answered general questions, returns calls, provided information which I can and do pass on to my clients. I save the information in a "Chicago Title" folder and use it when I need it or when I think it will benefit a client.

Laurel Jaques recommends Leilani Panes


I have done many escrows with Leilani, and every escrow I have done with her has been a fantastic experience. She is very efficient and gets the job done. There have been some difficult transactions with title issues that needed to be resolved and she was always been able to pinpoint the issue and get the situation handled. Clients appreciate her straightforward and knowledgeable responses to their questions and have been very complimentary on their experiences with Leilani, her assistant Dawn and Chicago Title in general.

Connie Erickson recommends Leilani Panes


I love working with Leilani. We had a tricky transaction where the house was scheduled to close nearly at the same time it was due to be auctioned off. She was at her desk at a very early hour (well before 8:00 a.m.) with papers for me to drive up to Los Gatos. It all worked out thanks to her diligence and care.

Leilani is the pinnacle of professionalism and expertise. I have worked with her on several escrow, and have nothing but the highest praise. Other title officers can "expect" their fees while Leilani earns it as a true customer advocate!
