Shirley Framsted

Escrow Officer Chicago Title Fresno & Madera
I focus on creating a positive escrow experience for all of my clients. I have been in the industry for 35 years, specializing in residential resale and refinance transactions. I also handle short sales, acquisition escrows and other specialized resale transactions. My assistant Stephanie and I work diligently to keep the escrow on track and all parties aware of the progress. We strive for perfection and work to deliver an extremely high level of service. Outside of work, I like spending my free time traveling with my husband on the back of our Harley, and relaxing with my family.

Shirley and Stephanie continue to provide my clients and myself with outstanding service! I so appreciate the communication each step of the way on escrows. I like to be present for my Buyers AND my Sellers when they sign their paperwork. I also like to receive a copy of the CD before it is provided to my clients so I can make sure they are not being charged for a fee which should be on the other side of the transaction. The personal touch in the escrow/title portion of a transaction is still alive and well at Chicago Title in Fresno, Ca. Thank you for your exemplary service, it is truly appreciated by this Realtor!

Stephanie Dimick went above and beyond what I expected and addressed issues caused by a delayed buyer signing. She was especially was vigilant during our closing window. She oversaw the recording queue and notified me at 6:30pm of the successful recording. That was impressive!

I appreciated the friendly and professional treatment from the Escrow Team of Chicago Title in Fresno CA. It seems lately to be a trend, you have to pick one or the other. This transaction was filled with challenges and delays, but it was handled with professionalism and teamwork. Regardless of it's challenges, this was the smoothest Real Estate transaction this year by far.

Shirley Framsted handled this VERY short 7 day (cash) escrow with her usual efficiency and professionalism that she has always demonstrated. She picked up her phone when I called (I tried not to do this too often). Her team is always one step ahead of things, as well. When I initially asked my Seller about choosing an escrow company to handle this transaction, I asked him if he had any opinion on a title/escrow company. He told me he wanted to avoid any inefficiency in signing forms, knowing he would be living out of state. I immediately knew Shirley and her team would be the best fit for this Seller (in addition to making me look good)! Shirley is always on top of things. I would like to add there are several title/escrow companies in town that DO NOT answer their phones or forget to respond to requests, who send the closing packages to the incorrect email address, etc. I realize in these times, the bottom dollar is still important and we are all in business to make money, not lose money. Either Chicago Title is hiring enough staff to get the job done effectively and efficiently or Shirley and her team are doing one heck of a job covering all their bases! I just want to convey my sincere gratitude-WELL DONE!!! Susan Millard

Shirley Framsted has been my Escrow Officer for 18 years. I cannot say enough amazing things about her and Stephanie Dimick. I never feel rushed when I call them and if they don't have an answer they will research it get right back to me. They are second to none and my clients are always satisfied with their service & professionalism. Work is not a party place for them, it's 100% down to business and they have made my job less stressful. Always know things will be done correctly and never feel like I have to micro manage. They are definitely a part of my success!

I was 'under the gun' to close escrow. My clients had lined up contractors to begin work on a new home for their mother, who is 88 and recently widowed. The loan signing was held up, and then the funding had a problem. Stephanie kept me in the loop with regular emails about the progress. I really appreciate that detail in a very delicate situation. I always say that real estate isn't brain surgery, there really aren't emergencies, but what we do is important to people. They count on us to take care of this aspect of their changing lives. It's what builds trust in a world where mistrust is growing. I appreciated how much Stephanie understood this on my behalf!
