Mortgage Broker and Realtor

I've worked with Teri for many years. Some of my deals are the most complex and challenging. For sure, Teri is at the top tier of escrow officers in the business! I can't recall a single escrow she couldn't handle or actually save the day because of her strength, coupled with knowledge of the industry.

Joan E. Sieber recommends Chicago Title Castro Valley

President of Hayward Foundation for the Arts, Professor Emerita CSUEB,

My experience of Teri Olberg and Chicago (then Lawyer's) Title Co. has been uniformly positive, even surprisingly so. Based on my past experience of title companies, they vary on the dimensions of (1) protectiveness of security of transactions, (2) efficiency, and (3) friendliness. Teri is at the extreme positive end on all three dimensions. She is a dedicated professional who has been in the business for many years, grown with the industry, and has the "people skills" to give clients the assurance that all the right things are happening with their account. She goes the extra mile to solve problems in ways that do not bruise feelings and leave all parties feeling served and protected. When people of Teri's character run an organization, leading by example and communicating clearly, the organization becomes a smoothly running process that instills confidence and produces the warm glow of satisfaction.

Sheila Buckley recommends Chicago Title Castro Valley

I don't think there has been a smoother transaction of any kind, much less a home sale, and Teri Olberg is a smooth operator. Lawyers Title went out of their way getting the sale done and escrow closed. Highly recommend.

Christine Termini recommends Chicago Title Castro Valley

Home owner

Teri was referred to us by a business associate of my husband. He has developed business and personal relationships with many professionals and has relied on this kind of referral as part of his own business.

Teri's professional integrity, honesty and skills were quite evident as we worked with her.

We sold a home that had been in the family for over 50 years. We needed to have a friendly, competent and caring individual on our side, to help us through the process. We found all of that in Teri. She kept us well informed through every step along the way.

I highly recommend Teri to anyone who has a need for her services. I will definitely call upon her skill again, if the occasion arises.
