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.

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 was wonderful to work with and a great team player through - out our entire escrow. Leilani's got us through the escrow very efficiently and free of any issues. Leilani is so professional and such a pleasure to work with, I look forward to working with Leilani again, very soon!

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!

Leilani, is truly an asset your organization. She not only completed my escrow on time, she did while handling two EO jobs. Working weekends and long hours appears to be the norm for Leilani. She is a professional through and through.

Leilani and Dawn saved the day and helped a borrower move into their new home a day ahead of schedule. With little to no warning they received funds and recording the file. I didn't think it was possible, and was ecstatic when I got the news. We were working with a very narrow margin of error and wouldn't have made it without Leilani and Dawn. Thanks again ladies

We are hotel brokers. Leilani handled a complex transaction for us recently. She got it right and got it done on time. No small accomplishment! This was for a client I had for 12 years and it was important to me that escrow was handled well. She did just that.

I have been working with Leilani for over thirty years. She always does a fantastic job for all of my clients, and goes out of her way to make sure we close on time and that the customer fees fully informed during closing.

Leilani is an absolute rock star! She is always quick to respond to my emails, she thinks of everything needed in a closing package so that nothing is left to be done after a signing and she often responds after hours and on weekends which is VERY rare in escrow and title. I have loved working with her over the years and would most definitely recommend her to anyone!

We are happy to write a recommendation for Leilani at Chicago Title Co. She has been available to help us on several occasions including the closing on the refinancing of two different properties that we own, one in Carmel Valley, the other in Los Angeles. Each time she was well organized, thorough, efficent, and a delight to work with. We recommend her without reservation.
