Nicole Ogrey

Escrow Officer Chicago Title - Palo Alto
Since 1998, Nicole Ogrey has been guiding customers through the title and escrow process with a nurturing hand and the warm, welcoming personality that makes her so memorable at Chicago Title. Her ability to connect with people, empathize with all parties and her Impeccable eye for detail are some of the many reasons she has received various awards for outstanding performance and is a member of both the Million Dollar Club for Residence Sales and the Chicago Title President’s Club.
Nicole has been amazing throughout our transaction. We ratified a contract on a Tuesday evening. By Wednesday morning, she was already in touch with me and moving forward with the needed paperwork. Since this was a 10 day close all cash transaction, it had it's challenges to meet the 10 day timeline. Nicole stepped up to the plate and actually closed a day early-9 day close, way to go Nicole!!!!
Nicole Ogrey�s work has never disappointed. She keeps all sides greatly informed and updated in a timely manner. She kept all parties in the loop while I was traveling and is very flexible as well. Nicole also explains details in a precise manner so all can understand easily. She has helped to close on time consistently even with hiccups in the transactions. I look forward to working with her in the future.
Nicole is pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful and handles difficult escrows with ease. She does a great job! Ted Paulin, Compass
Nicole O'Grey has been my title officer exclusively for the past 10+ years. Situations have come up ver the years that would have panicked other escrow officers. Nicole has a very calm approach to solving any issues and is able to relate to my clients in a very reassuring way, so as to make the transaction as stress free as possible. She is also extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of a transaction, be it exchanges, trust sales, probates, or regular purchases. I highly recommend her.
The process was well organized, detail oriented. Nicole was very patient and super efficient!

We were fortunate to work with Nicole and her team on a recent purchase transaction that required closing within 15 days. I can't say enough on how amazing it was to work with them to make our clients loan process close on time. Nicole was very flexible and offered up many solutions for my clients to close not only in her offices but with a mobile notary. Nicole was available whenever I called and was instrumental in ensuring recording was completed on time! I highly recommend her and her team for all of your escrow needs!

We just closed on the sale of a listing in Menlo Park, for which Nicole was the Escrow Officer. Nicole did a fantastic job for our clients and the buyers. She effectively communicated the schedule, as well as subsequent changes, and coordinated with all parties (buyers, sellers, agents, and lender) to ensure a smooth process. The entire transaction went smoothly and the sale closed early. Kudos to Nicole for her organization and professionalism!

Nicole provided excellent service and beyond for one of my most challenging transactions. She goes beyond the call of duty for the customer and the client, pushing hard to get the transaction closed before the holidays as we faced more and more delays. I highly recommend her. And, I hope to work with her in the future.

Nicole has handled a number of escrows for me and each one has been done with the height of professionalism and knowledge. She handles any wrinkles with calm and insight and is as strong with the technical as she is with the inter-personal. She makes the clients and me feel informed and well-considered and she always seems to be one step ahead of any questions I may have. I can't recommend Nicole highly enough!

Nicole Ogrey did a fantastic job of helping us close escrow on the sale of our home in CA. We were out of the country at the time and had to sign using digital signatures with DocuSign. She handled those emails easily and was patient with us when we had questions about how to use the software.
We appreciate her professionalism and courteous service.
We highly recommend her to others.
Kind regards, Patricia and Uel Jones
