Escrow Officer Chicago Title Carmel
Aug 29, 2019
Christine can run circles around anybody, any day, anytime. She not only meets expectations, but she EXCEEDS them. It was such a pleasure knowing that she was there to back me up and walk my clients through any and all questions that arose during the escrow period. She was friendly, knowledgable, and patient always. She always took my phone calls, she was proactive and she got our closing done early by staying late into the evening. Thank you so much!

If you are lucky enough to have Christine Kelso as your escrow officer you are getting the best of the best! Outstanding service and always goes above and beyond for my clients. She works hard and also late if need be. I have had a few complex escrows with her in relation to clouds on title, outstanding liens, etc. as well as her ability to get a POA completed on an extremely shortened escrow window and she always seems a find a way to get it closed on time or earlier! 6 out of 5 stars! Highly recommended!

Christine is handling an escrow for one of my most challenging clients who demands an incredible amount of time and attention. The transaction is somewhat complicated and Christine has gone out of her way to communicate with the client, even on the weekends, to help close the sale. I am so happy to have her on my team and will certainly look to her in the future to handle my business and perhaps the next few won't be so intense.

I / we have worked with Christine Kelso on a number of different escrows and each one is always a great experience. From the start of the escrow file she always performs a close review of Preliminary Title Report to identify any gating issues and works to resolve as soon as possible. All the way through to the final sign off with Sellers and/or Buyers her style is fantastic! On occasion when there are unforeseen issues arise she has gracefully navigates all parties through to a smooth finish. It's always a pleasure to work with Christine and her team. We will have more!

Christine is an extremely personable and conscientious escrow officer. I was out of the area when I purchased a home in Pacific Grove and she continuously responded to questions and provided guidance as requested. She knows her career area and seems to understand the angst that a buyer can experience once the excitement of the sale is over. She is an excellent asset for your company.

Christine Kelso went above and beyond to get this deal done! She stayed late in the final days to make sure everything was correct and we appreciate the extra work and time she put to make the purchase go through. She worked with two loan officers and we really appreciate getting everything through flawlessly. Thank you again. We highly recommend Christine for future home purchases.

I always enjoy closing escrows with Christine. She is diligent and wonderfully responsive to all of our questions and confirmation requests. Over 15 years of working with Christine we've also had our share of difficult escrows which only closed due to her patience and perseverance. Most importantly, my clients and office enjoy working with Christine.

In the 38 years of doing business in all parts of California you come to know who you can trust to do the job your are expecting and Christine is that person. She went out of her way to anticipate all of our needs and followed through with all that was needed for a successful close.

I've had the pleasure of working on a number of escrows with Christine Kelso and she has always been professional and courteous to my clients and myself. It's common to get a hold of Christine well after business hours and catch her still working on escrow files. It's a pleasure to work with Christine and would reccomend her talent to future clients.

Christine has once again exceeded my expectations!! Last week, she facilitated the closing of a 9 day escrow that had Sellers signing out of town, HOA docs difficult to get, and I was sick with Food Poisoning. None of that mattered! Christine got it done with a smile and the professionalism that I have come to expect from her. She is an asset to MY business and certainly an asset to Chicago Title. Definitely my first choice when choosing an Escrow Officer.

I have bought and sold approximately 10 homes in the last few years. I insist that the realtors use Christine Kelso for all my transactions. She is the best...Her attention to detail, knowledge and experience, is extremely important to me.
I refer to her as my little blue blanket.
