I have worked with Christine on numerous transactions over the years. She is always extremely personable, professional, diligent and responsive. Christine has gone "above and beyond" many times and always exceeds the expectations of my clients. She has handled some complicated escrows for me in the past and navigates the issues in a calm, confident and problem solving manner. Christine is one of the best in the business and I highly recommend her and her team!

"I have been in the Real Estate business since 2005 as an Investor and licensed Realtor since 2009 in which I’ve had the pleasure of working with many escrow officers over the years on countless transactions, and Christine Kelso is hands down the best escrow officer and I’ve had the pleasure to work with.
She will go above and beyond for you and your clients. Her experience and knowledge are invaluable assets that she has to protect you and your clients from any errors and omissions, and in the process, she makes you look good in front of your clients. I do not understand how she does it but she is always on top of everything and I can write a book on how many times I have been impressed by Christine’s performance.
I am not the only one who is impressed by Christine, all my clients and the loan officers can’t stop bragging about how impressive she is and how their job is much easier.
Thank you for everything Christine!"

As others have mentioned, Christine's attention to detail is absolutely outstanding. From her quite timely follow up, to her patience with questions and issues, we can't express enough how impressed we were with her level of execution and her professionalism. We've purchased many properties over the decades and not one escrow officer came even close to meeting Christine's standards. We look forward to working with Christine again in the future - and would certainly request to work with her in any capacity possible. Thank you again Christine!

As an attorney, I am so impressed with Christine’s focus on detail. She and her team work amazingly hard to ensure that nothing is missed. Christine is tracking on the timeframe and every detail. There are many cases where I am getting emails from her as early as 7:00 am, as late as 10:00 pm and throughout the weekend. She is the consummate professional and I and my office have come to trust and rely upon her profoundly. In addition to all her great technical skills, she is a true joy to work with. She brings a can-do attitude to even the thorniest of cases and has never once given up. Her creatively as a problem-solver is only matched by her sunny personality and commitment to getting the job done. I give her the highest possible recommendation!

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.
