Ric Morrison recommends Francesca Aiello


As a Realtor for over 30 years, I have known Fran for over 25 of those years from when she was an assistant at First American Title and now at Chicago Title. Fran brings a wealth of experience to the escrow process and is honest, trustworthy, professional, well organized and personable with excellent communication skills. Fran is truly a pleasure to work with and look forward to our next transaction together.

Francesca Aiello has been a pleasure to work with. She is very quick to respond with communication, information and documents needed as we worked through our real estate transaction. It is always appreciated when the title and escrow officer takes charge, follows our leads and takes the initiative to get the job done. I would highly recommend Francesca with Chicago Title as she has been part of a great team during a difficult transaction. Thank you Francesca!

Mick Pfaff recommends Francesca Aiello

Realtor with Sothebys Carmel Rancho

Francesca was fabulous in every respect of an escrow closing. She made the scene fun and comfortable for my clients, asked about their plans for this new wonderful home, and shared her admiration for the property. She was extremely well organized and moved smoothly through each of the phases of the closing, making a normally tedious event fun. I would recommend Francesca to anyone at anytime.
Best regards,

Alexandra Mouzas recommends Kimberly Verania

Realtor Associate

Kimberly and her associates are professional, speedy, and a source of information. They go out of their way to ensure that everyone involved understands the process. I have every faith when I ask Kimberly to do the job -- it gets done, above and beyond. One time Kimberly sat through an appointment with clients who could not speak or read English, there was an interpreter involved and myself. After the two hour signing appointment, Kimberly found a small detail that had been omitted. She took it upon herself to visit these clients at their home to obtain the final piece of information. Deal closed, and we received the then highest price for the area. Kimberly is my go to. Thank you Kimberly and staff at Chicago Title.

Fran and the Carmel Chicago Title team are top notch. We closed early on a 20 day escrow in which both sellers and buyers were not local residents. Even last minute issues were handled professionally and without stress. My clients are happy and so am I!

I have worked with Francesca on several transactions. She always makes the process for my clients who are buying or selling their home seamless and is always available to both my clients and I whenever we have any title and/or escrow related questions. Francesca is the best at what she does in her business and I will continue to open escrows with her at Chicago Title. She continues to out perform other escrow officers with her responsiveness, attention to detail, and always willing to go above and beyond for both me and my clients.

Mark Cohan recommends Francesca Aiello

Real Estate agent

Fran is so wonderful to work with. She has worked in title and escrow I am pretty sure since she started elementary school. Her knowledge is unparalleled and her service is also beyond compare. She follows up immediately and has an answer for the craziest questions. She has a wonderful touch with both my buyer and seller clients. I am always comfortable when she is the Title officer and she is my first choice whenever we have the option.
