This was a complex transaction involving a buyer in Beijing. We had to be fast, connected, global. Angela and Melissa of Chicago Title in Cupertino were all these things and so much more. Wherever I'm doing a transaction in the Bay Area I'm gonna push for escrow to be held with CTT. Thank you guys so much for making this work as well as it did!

Melissa is very pleasant to work with. She takes action immediately and provides solutions. We had a very complicated transaction lately where we had to involve lawyers and Melissa was very helpful during the whole time.
Melissa was very professional and timely. She answered emails very quickly, even after hours. Melissa obtained all required disclosures, especially from HOA, which can be difficult. She gives really good advice, and I really enjoyed working with her. I will absolutely continue working with her in the future, and will be recommending other realtors to work with her.
