Mary Jo McGauvran

Chicago Title Lake Oswego
I love the constant and continual challenge of learning new things and with over 24 years of experience in title and escrow; I get to encounter that each and every day. As a senior escrow officer, I handle all transactions, including escrows for business opportunities, REOs, tax exchanges, commercial and residential transactions. I work proactively in order to anticipate any red flags, so that your transaction can close in a timely manner. My biggest goal is to provide the best service possible in this market. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, hiking, dancing and tending my vineyard.

I just wanted to let you guys know how awesome you are. Communication has not been good with the other escrow until we’re scrambling to get things done at the last minute. This is the sale of a bank owned property – and that always makes things more difficult, but I have to think that if you were running this escrow we’d be signed by now.

I’m sure you don’t hear this sort of thing enough, but thanks for being awesome at what you do!

As a professional mobile notary I enjoy nothing more that working with an Escrow Office who knows what they are doing, who deeply cares about their clients and has respect for everyone involved in the transaction. I am looking forward to helping her and her office serve our clients in the Willamette Valley for years to come.

Mary Jo held together a difficult short sale transaction. Her communication was consistent and she and her assistant facilitated the process when requested. Mary Jo did not rush the buyers at closing; she allowed them to relax and enjoy this final step before becoming homeowners. I would not hesitate to work with Mary Jo again.
