Shannon Vicencio was amazing to work with. She and her incredibly competent team took a difficult file from another company and powered through the challenges and hurdles with ease and professionalism. I believe, it was BECAUSE of her team that the escrow was as smooth as it was.

Shannon and I have literally had hundreds of transactions together. Her experience, industry knowledge, and positive attitude make a tremendous difference in each transaction. She is consistently one step ahead of us in the buying and selling process, making our jobs easier, and she never misses a single beat.

Thank you Shelly for being such an amazing Chicago Title Area manager. Your team is top notch and your professionalism is always appreciated with all my Contra Costa East Bay clients. If you're a new agent be sure to set up a meeting with Shelly as she will be a trusted resource for you with much information about current matters in the escrow and title industry.

Once again thank you Shelly for all the years of service - since 2006.

Sue Layng recommends Shannon Vicencio

This was a difficult escrow with the close date not met on 3 different times. The escrow never would have closed on time on the 4th closing date without Shannon Vicencio and her amazing team. The selling agent actually wanted t to close later and said there was no way it would close.
