Stephanie Kelley

Escrow Officer Chicago Title Walnut Creek
I was raised as a military child in Junction City, Kansas and grew up in Hephzibah, Georgia.
I started my escrow career in 1990 as an escrow assistant in Montclair, and became an Escrow Officer in 1999. I am proficient in handling Resale, Refinance, REO and For Sale By Owner transactions. One of my many strengths is being able to close some of the most complicated deals from wrap around Deeds of Trust, to Assignment transactions. I am known for my ability to quickly resolve issues that arise in any transaction.

I look forward to handling your next Escrow!

Stephanie Kelley, was my Escrow Officer for a seemingly complicated situation for most. However, Stephanie's experience and knowledge of the business allowed her to ask the right questions and take the required steps to get the job done, while making the entire process feel seemless. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Stephanie, because of her knowledge, professionalism, communicative and calming abilities and will always recommend and refer her to others.

Stephanie Kelly was my Escrow officer. How can you do a survey and not include her name. Credit goes to Stephanie. Heck I don't even know who the Sales Executive is.

Stephanie Kelly did an amazing job with this last escrow I had with her. She always made sure I knew exactly what was going on and where we were with everything. When things at the end started to look rough she swooped in and saved the day. I can not thank her enough for all of her hard work.

Stephanie Kelley, Cari Connor, Lisa Ford, Shelley Sutter and the rest of the Walnut Creek CTT team is the reason we ONLY do business with them for our title and escrow services. Each and every team member is an integral part of the whole group supporting each other when need be so that no customer is left waiting or without the answers they need to close their escrows on time. Their attention to detail, service and customer satisfaction is unparalleled in my experience and I would not consider entering into any real estate transaction without them behind me.

Rose Financial is a lender and we usually use our own escrow and title. On a recent loan file, escrow was already open and we reluctantly agreed to move forward with the open escrow. As it turned out, we were pleasantly surprised with the outstanding performance we received from Stephanie. She is certainly a professional and very humble. Throughout the process, she answered her phone, she was quick to respond to emails, and she handled all the unforeseen troubles seamlessly. If you are looking for a Super Hero to handle your next Escrow, Stephanie is a perfect candidate. She will certainly surpass your expectations.

I was referred to Chicago title from a previous home loan customer for buyers who were purchasing a home locally, and without Realtor representation. Throughout the transaction and despite a very unique scenario, Stephanie Kelley, along with her amazing team, provided exceptional service and follow through every step of the way. It was a smooth & seamless closing experience, and she exceeded our expectations by going above and beyond her duties to satisfy specific requests to ensure closing by the COE date. Not only was I and our lender very pleased with the file management and title/escrow services she provides, but most importantly the borrower/buyers and sellers were as well, which resulted in a high customer satisfaction rating for us all. I highly recommend Stephanie and Chicago Title for your next transaction!

I had the pleasure of meeting Stephanie through a fellow Chicago Title escrow officer affiliate, Sheri Borden. Stephanie is relatively new to the Chicago Walnut Creek office but I know she has worked for Chicago for several years now. Stephanie is super nice and professional. An easy to work with People Person.
