Jon Santacroce recommends Kate Goldmann

Usually, I let buyers select their own escrow agents. However, there was one transaction that posed some challenges, and I strongly advocated for Kate to handle it. The buyer's agent typically worked with another agent from a different Chicago office, whom he believed provided the best service. Nonetheless, he was open to using Kate if I could prove her responsiveness.

Late one Friday, I sent Kate a request to open escrow, knowing we needed a swift response to initiate the appraisal process promptly for an expected fast closing. True to form, Kate replied promptly and efficiently managed the task. Throughout the transaction, which encountered a lender change and numerous lender delays, Kate kept us informed every step of the way. Despite a frustrating lender experience, she made every effort to ensure we closed on time.

Remarkably, we closed on a day when Kate was out of the office, yet there were no issues whatsoever because Kate had ensured that everything was meticulously organized and ready for recording. She was absolutely exceptional!

Thank you Joanne Stellini for contacting office close to where I live to transfer information needed. They knew why I was there the minute I said my name and found the information needed and transferred it to you in minutes. It couldn’t have been easier and I didn’t have to travel 75 miles to get to you!

Kate Goldman did an outstanding job of getting a difficult transaction closed during the holidays. The lender made it extremely challenging and she shined. She is definitely a 10 out of 10.

Kate was absolutely amazing! This was a very difficult transaction and she went above and beyond to help us and make sure that we were kept informed, every step of the way. She was the bright light in what has been the most frustrating transaction (due to lender). She is truly a saint!!

Don't know if I can make it up to 150! Kristine & her team has always been a pleasure to deal with. Professionalism and timeliness are the hallmark of the service that they provide. On top of that, they are a pleasure to deal with. They truly care about their job and it shows in their dealings with me, the other agents and TCs involved as well as the buyers and the sellers.

Joanne Stellini is always so fabulous to work with. We try to always open pre-sales and keep them with her because she is so easy to get in touch with. Emails are answered right away (and if she can't her assistant VJ Jurs does). She keeps us updated through out the escrow and keeps all parties informed. Never disappointed!

Vicky Camarena recommends Kristine Carter

Kristine Carter and Valerie Sosa are amazing they went above and beyond to make sure our escrow close on time. When I say above & beyond I mean it. This escrow received loan docs, funding, buyer?s sign and record on the same day. This would have never been possible with anyone else. Kristine & Valerie took the lead, communicate with all parties, made all arrangements and schedule all notary appointment, went out of their way to community with lender and close our escrow. Once again Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
I am so happy and grateful I found such great escrow officers to handle my escrows.

Jorge Martinez recommends Mikayla Coelho

Realtor at EXP Realty

I have worked with Mikayla for about two years now and by far she is the best sales executive I could ever ask for. Her expertise and level of professionalism are out of this world. She has provided me a lot of support and resources that have helped take my real estate business to the next level. Not to mention her knowledge on all the resources that Chicago Title offer is superb. Working with Mikayla is like a 5-star limo ride where she rolls out the red carpet and provides white glove service. Her expertise and support thus far is unmatched compared to other sales executives I have worked with in the course of my career. I take referrals very seriously; however, Mikayla has shown me a great amount of support that I refer her to anyone who can use her services. Looking for a phenomenal sales executive? We’ll look no further because Mikayla is your go to person! Thank you for all that you do Mikayla! ????????
