Tia and her team were awesome. With her proficiency and professionalism, she was able to get our property through escrow and closed, even though we were on the mainland. Thanks Tia (and Jaz)!

I have used Tia Tagavilla in several transactions some were complex and other straight forward. Tia has always been on top of things. She has always kept in touch with me and my clients keeping us updated as to the status of the escrow. I intend to use Tia in future transaction and highly recommend her to anyone needing a highly competent Escrow Officer.

I cannot recommend Tia highly enough and her assistant Jaz. When you have someone who responds to your questions either via email or phone quickly, it makes the process easier. We purchased a newer home and was in the process of selling our old one. The home closed 5 days earlier than expected!. With real estate as hot as it is and we knew how busy they were, we couldn't believe how quickly this occurred. We are grateful there was someone there as Tia and Jaz that made this process move so quick. Thank you so much. Highly recommend!!

I've used Tia in several transactions and she has always managed to keep things on track. In this latest transaction the Seller's lived in the Northwest Territory of Canada. This along with the Pandemic made the sending and receiving of paperwork difficult. Tia kept both Sellers and me up-to-date even when there were delays and problems.
Thank you Tia

We just closed on a jumbo purchase.

As a loan officer with over twenty five years in the mortgage industry, I am always looking for an escrow officer that keeps us updated on the process, responds to e-mails in a timely manner, will pick up the phone to call the client when needed and includes necessary parties on e-mails when scheduling / communicating closing details.

In our current mortgage environment, it is not easy to do all of the above, but Tia just did it!

Tia, mahalo for your excellent service!

Tia provided excellent service, efficiency and great follow up! Her pleasant nature and warmth comes through in handling escrow along with follow up after closing. Having worked in real estate for several decades I can say she is one of the best ever.

Tia was super friendly, efficient, and easy to reach. I appreciate her handling everything about our real estate transaction from across an ocean. Everything went smooth, and as expected, which I sincerely appreciate. I would recommend Tia and use her services again.

I've worked with a number of title and escrow agents over the past 3-4 years and I must say Tia and her team were on top of the details and very prompt at responses and filings. I definitely recommend Tia and can attest to her customer and detail focused approached.

With a very tight time line and pandemic threat, Tia has the escrow done right before Xmas for us. It is the first time we purchase a house over the Internet without seeing, it is Tia's professional and trustworthy service that gave us confidence to move forward. Thank you Tia for this lovely house as our Xmas gift!

We just closed on our second property on the Big Island that Tia has handled. Both were done very professionally, efficiently, and on time. Tia was always reachable and in communication with me throughout the process, I highly recommend her as an escrow officer! Mahalo Tia!!!

Working remotely with Tia and Shyla was a great experience. We sold a condo in Kona and I am located in Honolulu. Tia and team always provided timely responses and kept me informed. Their various branch offices in Honolulu made it easy to complete escrow without having to travel to Kona.

Tia was wonderful. Her follow through was excellent. Closing closed on time in a professional manner. mahalo

Tia Tagavilla is involved and invested in her escrows. She listens to what her clients need and gets the job done! Experienced, knowledgeable, accessible..... I can't recommend her enough.

Living on the mainland we were in over our heads trying to understand Hawaii laws and rules when we decided to sell our home in Kona. Tia consistently tried to explain what we needed to do, to proceed through each stage, which seemed so foreign and different than selling property on the mainland. She was patient with us and walked us through the steps calmly and very professionally. We lost our minds several times, but she kept us on track until our home successfully closed escrow. I give her credit - she never once disappointed us as we needed our hands held. My hat's off to her.
