Lisa Albritton aka Lisa Blanchard

Branch Manager Chicago Title - Palo Alto
I was born and raised in San Jose, CA. I graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in psychology and a minor in social science. I've been in escrow since 2001 and counting, starting from a temporary employee to a Branch Manager.

My education and training in psychology, combined with my years in escrow has contributed to the development of having strong communication and interpersonal skills. I am passionate about helping others and serving my community. I believe in treating everyone with respect and kindness.

I believe in a hard day's work but with a healthy amount of humor to round it out!!!
Lisa and Vanessa were very responsive, professional and handled our transaction very smoothly. Thank you!
Lisa and her team did an excellent job in assisting us in our sale of our home in Palo Alto. They were always professional and quick to get back to me and resolve any issues. There were no delays in the transaction and everything went very smoothly. I can easily recommend Chicago Title and Lisa and her team!
One of my clients recently told me how impressed she was with Team Albritton. She called the office one day and identified herself by name. The response from the person who answered the phone showed that they recognized her name and was so warm that the client asked me later if she had met the escrow team before. She hadn't, but I was not surprised at the warm greeting because Team Albritton ALWAYS brings their A game and makes all of our mutual clients feel valued and appreciated. Great job team!

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.
