Ted Paulin recommends Nicole Ogrey

To whom it may concern:
I am a 2nd generation Realtor and 16 years in the business. I was going to recommend Nicole Ogrey to my client in Washington but, he beat me to it. She was already referred by his attorney colleague and he insisted that she manage our escrow. As usual she was on top of everything! She managed handling the buyer�s last minute hard money loan when it was an all-cash transaction with a quick close. Then if that wasn�t enough of a challenge, the buyer decided last minute to purchase the property as a 1031 Exchange. As usual Nicole took each and every challenge in stride and calmly walked all parties through step by step. She definitely has been at this for awhile and makes you appreciate that she is your Escrow Officer. Thanks Nicole! You are appreciated, noticed and acknowledged. Ted Paulin, Compass

John Chen recommends Lisa Albritton

Seller of a Palo Alto home

My wife and I are so impressed with Lisa Albritton's proficiency and professional knowledge in handling our home sale transaction in June 2020. She is very responsive to all our questions and inquiries regarding escrow procedures, title search result, and updates on closing. Whenever we sent her an email, we would get a response from her within hours, very often within minutes. She is very friendly, patient and knowledgeable, and always answered our questions in exhaustive details in terms that we could understand. Because we scheduled to move out of state after we sold our home, we were eager to know the date of COE in order to make the arrangement accordingly. Lisa was so considerate and understanding that she always did her best to give us an estimate that was as close as to the actual progress of the anticipated escrow closing schedule. With Lisa's professional help, we had achieved a very smooth transition of the home ownership at the Close of Escrow. We highly recommend Lisa Albritton as one of the most competent escrow officers with high standards, and we will refer her to our friends and relatives with no reservations whatsoever, if such needs arise in the future.
