Barbara Foster recommends Ruth Pike-Walker

Realtor, Golden Hills Brokers

Ruth Walker goes way beyond other Title Companies or Title officers in her care for our escrows I do not feel that she is truly appreciated or recognized. We always ask our buyers and sellers to use Chicago Title Danville Ruth Walker. We know that buyers usually have the choice of who they request but in today's Real Estate ways sellers usually get their way as to who the title company is for the Escrow. When this happens and we have to use a title company other than Chicago Title Danville Ruth Walker and we are very unhappy with the service and care. Having Ruth Walker and Julie Resing makes life so much better for our buyers and sellers. The act of perfection and kindness is everything in today's work world. They both give this to us 100%

JuDee Bell recommends Melinda Parra

This was a very difficult transaction that involved Lawyers, Probate, Collection Agency for Past due HOA, NOD, 2 very difficult Lender's, rude Buyer, initial 10 day COE and more. Melinda was in constant contact with all of us going above and beyond with her communication. I would never want to have an Escrow with ayone else than Melinda Parra. All of this during Covid 19!!!

Diane Schneider recommends Melinda Parra

Melinda just pulled off a miracle! We had an unusually difficult Probate escrow during covid-19 with multiple lenders. It wasn't easy, but she didn't give up. I appreciate her tenacity and willingness to keep us all in the loop. Thanks Melinda!

Lisa Moctezuma recommends Nancy Salas

Director of Sales Enablement & Training

Nancy was our escrow officer on a sales transaction in the midst of a global pandemic. Our transaction began right before the Shelter in Place went into effect, and Nancy was communicative and responsive through the whole thing. She explained things to me and my husband easily and made the transaction very simple. We have worked with other title companies in the past, but she went above and beyond to do things in a way that minimized the need for us to fill out excess forms. I feel so fortunate that our agent referred Nancy Salas, and I will personally refer her and Chicago Title to others. Thank you Nancy!

Jerry Moriarty recommends Karen Pinkston


I am writing on behalf of Karen Pinkston who has been one of the best all time reps I have ever used in the 18 years as a Danville Realtor. She has consistently over the many years gone so far out of her way to help agents like myself, it never ceases to impress me.

She has never complained, and she has never been less than totally helpful, using her skills and her amazing intelligence to help promote my business as well as my partners in our Remax office here in Danville. Karen Pinkston is the main force why II consistently open my escrows at Chicago Title. And she helps to remind me every time, as she is on top of all my listings as though through some magic. She is always there to help.

I could go on in detail the times Karen has helped myself and my partnering agents to make sure we are all totally taken of in every way which is a huge reason why I use Chicago Title exclusively. No one matches her diligence, her friendliness and her incredible intelligence and enthusiasm!

I could go on, because that is how impressive she is in helping myself and many of my partners. Thank you

Elton Behrens recommends Ruth Pike-Walker

Ruth Pike. I have known for more than 25 years. Prior to Chicago title she worked for First American Title, and that's where we met. She handled all my escrows.When I was informed she was leaving I decide to follow and continue using her. There is no one like Ruth Pike in this industry. She is an exceptional escrow officer,and has set the bar for the industry for her work ethics. Every escrow we have had together for the past 25 years has been well managed without any complaints from my buyers or sellers. That alone should speak of how exceptional she is. I contribute my success to her. Julie Resing is also an exceptional team member with Ruth Pike. Together they know how to coordinate from Start to Finish.Both are assets to your company Kind regards, Elton Behrens Broker Corporate America Inv CalBRE # 00992777

I have used Chicago Title for the past 20+ years and would not think of using anyone else. Tara has been one of the reps that I have used during this time. Her infectious personality, tech knowledge as well as her can do attitude make quite a force to deal with.

Michael and Cindy Jerila recommend Dione Majerus

Home Owner

What started out as what should have been a simple Refinance, turned into a personal grude against me by an Agency. They were doing wrong and forcing/threatening not to allow my simple refinance to move forwards. Dione, this is wheer you shined. As a Disabled Vet, I fought for this country and I was going to fight this all the way. Howvere, being old and standing alone, it wore me out and I was about ready to throw in the towel. You made this happen for me. When I was down and out, you picked me up and carried this fight, the fight against bureaucracy. I"m not used to having people fight for me and it meant alot to me, my wife, my family and my children. If you didn't care, we probably would have just cancelled escrow. We started to think about ways, or how to communicate and get through this bureaucracy. Your commuincation and tenacity I have to say, is the only true reason, we were able to Refinance our loan.

You showed us not only did you feel that someone had some sort of personal grudge against me, but you were not going to let that stand in the way of doing what is right, and getting our Refinance completed. You did what it took, which I feel many Escrow Officers wouldn't have taken those extra steps. They would have just simply told me get it handled and try again.

Thank You, Dione. I hope to do business with you again. If I can every do anything for you, just ask.

Thank You...
