I would 100% recommend Charissa to anyone purchasing a home. There are so many confusing details around titles and loans, so you really need to surround yourself with people who know the game. Charissa is one of those. She clearly understands her field inside and out, and is also a really nice person. She was happy to explain any details we didn't understand and never made us feel rushed going through the process. You won't be disappointed working with Charissa.

Charissa was the escrow officer on a purchase where I was the lender, and she was just fantastic! She guided us through the final details with calm and expertise, and made sure everything closed on time despite some last minute hitches. She impressed everyone involved!

I had a first-time homebuyer that was very nervous and wanted to question all the documents. Those closings are always interesting as I think they can go in any direction based on how patient and understanding the escrow officer is.

Charissa took the time with this buyer to not only be patient with his questions, but to also explain in a very detailed YET simple way what each document meant.

Just a great experience and I'll be directing some of my own escrows her way.

Charissa and her team were fantastic to work with, they even accommodated a signing appointment for my Seller on his concurrent purchase out of state with another Title Company. They were on top ahead of anything before they hit my radar, which is always appreciated.

It wasn't til after Charissa informed me that the deed had been released on the purchase of my dream home that I read some if her many glowing reviews. Though it didn't appear she was in any need of another being a belt and suspenders guy I figured I would say everything you read is quite true. What a genuine pleasure to deal with someone so good natured, knowledgeable and just darn good in what was a most challenging, down to the wire transaction. Kudos and dinner us on me!

Charissa handled the paperwork for the sale of my house through the TLK agency and she did a terrific job. She was efficient, sent the documents in a timely manner, responded to my questions and concerns and was very patient with my lack of technological expertise. I would highly recommend her to other clients of your agency.

Charissa was great, made the process as smooth and painless as possible. Very clear and effective communicator. It must be hard to explain all the nuances of property law and homeownership policy to newbies (first time buyers) like myself and my wife. She was happy to break it all down for us in layman’s terms so we could understand, and it didn’t take too long either. She also had a great attitude and good sense of humor, which helped turn a stressful transaction into a fun and happy occasion.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Charrssa did a get job. There where a number of stressors reguarding the Trust our homw was in, title, and inconsistencies in records of morgage payment. Charissa was always calm and made me feel like it was not problem and she would take care of it. And she did! I know there must have been a lot of behind the sceens work to get it all sorted, she never said a word, she just made it happen. Such a relief when I had so much else to deal with.

Charissa was wonderful! She was so kind and helpful in closing on the house purchase - I was a first time home buyer and clueless, and I also needed a notary in very rural area of an entirely different state. She was kind, accessible, helpful, and answered questions clearly. I feel so lucky that Charissa was my escrow officer - she made everything smooth and clear and easy! Thank you Charissa!!

Charissa helped us close on the purchase of a condominium. Before this we had not bought a condominium which is a more complicated purchase than a single family home. Charissa guided us through the volumes of paperwork, explaining each piece clearly and patiently. She was very well organized and gave us plenty of time to ask questions. Because of her help we left knowing what our current and future responsibilities are regarding the homeowners association which is very important in a condominium community. Charissa was easy to work with and we appreciate her knowledge and guidance.

I can not recommend Charissa enough ... for me she was very accommodating and reassuring in a situation where timelines were extremely tight and nothing seemed certain. Her efforts were instrumentals in making sure our closing was successful and on time. She went above and beyond in her communication with all parties to allow that success. In addition, her follow-ups after the signing were also above and beyond and equally very impressive. Expect an A+++ experience with Charissa.
