I have known and worked closely with Carmel and her awesome team at Chicago Title for nearly 5 years, on well over 100 transactions. Carmel is a person that I can 100% depend on; she is extremely bright, personable, and professional; and consistently goes way beyond the call of duty in her role as Assistance VP Sales at Chicago Title. I highly and wholeheartedly recommend her to make sure all of your title and escrow needs are met; and in most cases, exceeded! - Michael Kaufman

When you refer people you are also judged by the performance of those you refer. Over the last two decades Chicago Title has never failed to reflect positively on me. That was true when I owned by own brokerage in Susanville and it continues here in Los Gatos. From my first days at Intero Carmel has been a great asset to me learning the market and when I did my first escrow the rest of the staff followed through as I expected.

Doug Jones recommends Chicago Title - Los Gatos

Broker, Mortgage Magic

I actually feel lucky that I get to do business with Carmel and that she is my account manager with Chicago Title. I met Carmel at a time when my account manager from another title company was leaving the business and this absolutely excellent business and sales person came into my business life.

Have we had some things go a little sideways ? Of course and that is where her professionalism shines. Carmel is poised, polite, professional and has the ability to determine issues quickly and deal with those issues.

She has the ability to match her clients with the right title officer. Carmel matched my underwriter with Wendy Perry and I think the world of Wendy. It is a joy to be able to work with Carmel. Carmel, Wendy, and Chicago Title make me look better to my clients.

Carmel and Chicago Title have shown unwavering support and assistance for me from the day I began working with Intero. I had no doubt that when I opened my first escrow with Chicago Title in Los Gatos I would get the same level of service I was accustomed to from Chicago Title of Susanville California. Chicago Title remains my preferred resource.

She's always available to assist with a new escrow or closing, and genuinely cares about the cilent's experince working with Chicago Title Co.

I'd highly recommend you consider working with Carmel and Chicago Title, you won't be disappointed!
