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.

Kim has been the escrow officer I use exclusively for many years now. That is because she consistently goes the extra mile, my clients feel very comfortable with her, she is patient, and she connects with people on a personal level. Kim understands her job is about getting the paperwork right, but it is just as important to get the peoplework right. Kim is a standout at both.

Kim is the BEST escrow officer in the land!!! I can't say enough about the excellent job she does. I was lucky to have her coordinating my very first escrow and I have worked with her every chance I got in the years since.

Kim is always lightening quick to respond, she always keeps things calm- especially when a transaction is complicated, she is extremely patient with the clients (and with me!), and she is a super nice person. A true professional.

Thanks, Kim!!

Kim Has been my Escrow officer for over 15 years and has always done a great job for me and my clients. She is a wealth of information and can anticipate problems so they can be dealt with and keep the escrow together.
She has a gental way with clients at signings and makes sure clients understand their documents.
Over the years she has become more than a business partner, I consider her a friend.

Owner Broker of Hotel Brokerage
Kim (Kimberly officially) Verania has been impressing me for decades. DBA Hotel Brokerage, I sell hotels, motels,Inns, Bed and Breakfasts in Central California along the coast and at the foothills of the Sierras near Yosemite. Our coverage is located in several different counties, many of which do not have Chicago Title offices. She interfaces with other title companies with great ease, always solving the problems in a congenial and pleasantly persuasive manner.

Kim's attention to detail is impressive; her computer skills are impressive; her prompt responses are impressive. her PEOPLE skills are vastly superior to almost any title officer's i have ever known in my 40 plus years of brokerage.
We have written our own purchase agreements for many years. It is with great pleasure to note that our standard boiler-plate for Title Company wording is: Chicago Title.
Unless the prospective purchaser or seller has a prior relationship with a title company, I insist on Chicago Title Company as the title and escrow company to handle the transaction and, of course, Kim to be the officer in charge.

Kim has a special insight in helping people understand the nuances of the myriad documents they are being asked to sign. She truly cares about each buyer and seller and it shows in their responses to her. Whether, in our case, she is handling a small B&B selling for less than $600,000 or a larger $7,000,000 hotel with the attendant attorneys, accountants, advisers etc (yes they all try to help with advice), each person, conversation, email is dealt with personally and attentively by Kim.

If you want one of the best title companies with which I have dealt for many years, choose Chicago Title Company.

If you want your title officer to possess the highest set of ethics, morals, standards and efficiency, choose Kim at Chicago Title.

Simply the best!
