Irene was very persistent and got this file closed even though the seller was in France and during the quarantine it was almost impossible to get a notary! Irene got the job done! Mahalo~

I've known several escrow officers during my insurance career but had never met Irene until now. She has every trait I could have wished for in a business associate: efficient, organized, knowledgeable, thorough, professional yet friendly.

I'm so glad the seller's realtor chose her to handle my escrow. Irene, you're #1!

Great Job! We had a cancellation and a back-up and she had to work this file twice. Thanks for all you do!

Irene worked hard on this transaction through a global crisis. I have no doubt this would not have closed with another escrow company. We had a Canadian buyer getting a loan stuck in Canada unable to get to a US Consulate or Notary. Irene and Fidelity worked with the Bureau of Conveyances to make this happen with a Canadian attorney as the notary. Thanks Irene for going to bat for us.

Irene has always stepped up to the plate and gotten the job done quickly and efficiently, no matter how challenging of an escrow it is. She is always in close contact with myself, and my clients, and makes sure everyone is treated excellent. I recommend Irene for all your escrow needs! She kicks Butt!

I highly recommend Irene ! I live on the East Coast & it is difficult working things out this way, but we did it. She walked me through all the paper work. She alway returned my emails or calls. I am 6 hours ahead of Hawaii, so we both had to figure out when to be in contact. She is a hard worker & now a dear friend.
So very glad that I was able to work with her.

Irene and Fidelity National Title did a fantastic job closing a very long and difficult transaction requiring a variance from county of Hawaii. I am especially grateful to close now, during the Covid-19 crisis, when we are all challenged. Mahalo nui loa Irene!
