Liz Farinella is someone I have worked with for over 20 years since our days at Coldwell Banker in the 1990's. Even under pressure, Liz is one of the coolest people I know. This is an important trait to have in our business where emotions can and do run hot.

Carlos Alvarez recommends Tara Riley

Loan Consultant

Tara is the best at what she does. I've worked with Tara for a number of years now. Tara is always available to answer any of my questions. If she doesn't know the answer, she will get me the answer in a timely manner. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She is always willing to go above and beyond. She makes things happen on short notice which is very important in our business. She definitely makes my job easier knowing she is handling my transactions. I would highly recommend her to any of my co-worker sand any one else looking for an escrow officer.

Norma Solarz recommends Adrian Gudina


I just completed the sale of my home as a "For Sale by Owner" so I did not have a real estate agent to "hold my hand" through the transaction. As usual there were delays to closing escrow due to my Buyer's lender not being ready with the required paperwork. But when that delay happened Adrian, stepped in and kept the communication channels going for both both me and the Buyer, so we were always on top of what stage we were at and what the next step would be. Every question was responded to within minutes, and Adrian was always patient in her explanations. In addition I am very grateful to Adrian because she was aware that the payment for the property taxes would be delayed so she arranged to pay the county property taxes prior to closing! Adrian's attention to all the details, her responsiveness and skill at communicating took all the anxiety out of this delayed escrow closing. She is very professional and very easy to work with!

Lucy Armentrout recommends Chicago Title Montclair

Cristina Tabada and Liz Farinella handled separate parts of my most recent client�s escrow transaction. Cristina Tabada and her title team were terrific in resolving multiple complex chain of title defects, and working with a trust attorney to meet his professional criteria, at the inception of our relationship. Liz Farinella and her support team carried the escrow on the buyer�s behalf and remained in regular communication despite multiple surprises that ultimately pushed our closing date off by a full month. I unreservedly recommend both Liz Farinella and Cristina Tabada, and their �behind the scenes� title experts, and will absolutely work with these two Chicago Title teams again.
