Larry E Bentley recommends Leah Fuentez


Cannot compliment Leah enough. From helping me through selling a property a year ago. My first endeavor with selling by owner..she made it a cakewalk. I just sat back and signed papers.
Fast forward to now.I needed a tax form from that sale to complete my taxes. I didn’t even know it had been completed. Leah forwarded the form which escrow had submitted. She forwarded this to me before I had time to close my email out.

M. Michael Smith, Esq. recommends Melissa Brown

Real Estate Lawyer

I have been directly involved as the Attorney for Buyers or Sellers in innumerable transactions over a forty-year span. I can candidly report that working with Melissa Brown was one of the best experiences of my professional career. She was diligent, efficient, gracious and responsive. She managed to shepherd a complex $14 million dollar sale transaction from opening of escrow through recording in less than ten days! In short, I could not be happier with her performance and demeanor.

David Snell recommends Melissa Brown


Melissa Brown worked tirelessly in helping us not only close our escrow on time, but even a day early on a VERY short escrow. She is professional in her work, easily accessible by phone or email, and very good at what she does. The escrow we just closed was by far and away the largest and most complicated I've ever had. We had three different entities selling to one Buyer all in the same escrow. We had to coordinate getting all three entities together for signing documents, getting escrow instructions prepared and agreed to by all parties, as well as having five Leases signed by tenants on the properties and having the Leases incorporated into the Purchase and Sale Agreement. It was a lot to accomplish in a very short time. Melissa put in long hours and came through in the crunch. I can't say enough about Melissa and her team at Chicago Title. I would definitely recommend Melissa for you Commercial Escrow needs. Great job Melissa!!

Anonymous recommends Melissa Brown

Melissa and Kathy did another excellent job working with me and my clients on closing two transactions last week totaling over $11.6M in transactional value. We had several moving parts for both files, and we were able to work with Melissa and Kathy to close either right on time or ahead of schedule.

I have been working with Melissa and team for a long time now, and they provide some of the best service available in the industry! I look forward to a continued prosperous career with both Melissa and Kathy in 2022!

All the best,
