Happily retired in Maui
Sorry, this recommendation of Melanie is short but it “doesn’t” reflect the Great Job she did for us!
I’m drafting this on my phone at the beach here in Maui.
The process was smooth, fast, clear, precise and kind!
We are retired living here in Maui, and she made the whole process with our (Maui minds) senior island restrictions a blessing.

Retired International Business Professional
We came across Fidelity National Title in San Carlos when selling our condominium at Redwood Shores. Our real-estate agent introduced us to Melanie Luders, Branch Manager and Certified Escrow Officer, who handled our transaction. She was very professional, knowledgeable, well organized, efficient and responsive to all communications pertaining to a variety of issues associated with the deal. It was a real pleasure to work with Melanie since all paperwork was prepared ahead of time so that the transaction was completed on a scheduled day. We were very happy about that in this challenging coronavirus environment. Robert Koran, May 21, 2020
Principal Engineer
Melanie was efficient and got the job done at the earliest possibility.
She along with the lender were able to finish the proceedings with speed and thoroghness.
Melanie was a great help in completing our refinance process. Communicated promptly and aided in getting the final papers signed in spite of the health challenges.
Melanie did an awesome, painless and stress free job compiling the papers for the sale of my home. She was always there to answer the many questions thrown her way. She set up the notary, Lisa to come to the house. We sat outside, masked and gloved up to sign the papers which will certainly be a memorable event during this Covid19 forever.
Melanie did a great job handling our very fast closing (1 week). Since we are all sheltering in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she set things up so we were able to do the entirely closing from our home - which we very much appreciated.
Loan Originator
Melanie and her team were very helpful and professional throughout our home purchase process despite some difficulties due to the Covid 19 virus. I can't thank them enough for a job well done! Would definitely recommend them for future transactions.

where do i start???? i am so grateful for Melanie's partnership....most importantly, she's an all-around amazing human! She's also incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and always makes for a smooth, seamless process from start-to-close! LOVE being a part of her team!
Very professional, responded and provided documents required timely. Very knowledgeable about her job and her role in closing transactions.
The coved-19 made unusual hurdles to completing real estate escrows. Melanie did a great job in completing my escrow in these troubling times.
Ops Director, Veritas Homes
Melanie has helped us on multiple transactions, both for our real estate business and for our own mortgage refinancing. The thing that I appreciate most about having her be in charge of the transaction is that you can be totally certain that it will be handled competently, accurately and on time. If everyone involved in a transaction was this good, there would hardly ever be any problems!
Mortgage Banker
Excellent business partner to work along side!
Professional, pleasant, and knowledgeable - check, check, check; but the qualities that really separate her are her integrity (she does what she says she's going to - which is rare in any business) and her ownership of the client's well-being and the process.
Thank you Melanie for your great work!
First time home buyer
Melanie provided clear instructions on escrow and closing. Her communication was prompt and efficient. There was no drama, nothing memorable. And I really appreciated that, given that the rest of the home buying experience is quite stressful.
Realtor, Coldwell Banker
I have been using Melanie since 1996. She is not a ball dropper. You hand her the transaction and forward it goes, toward the finish line. I just had a listing/sale in South San Jose and opened escrow with Melanie in San Carlos. Even with the brand new and constantly evolving Shelter in Place restrictions/changes, the transaction closed without a hitch. No last minute surprises, as Melanie stayed current with the changing rules and anticipated, explained and arranged for each step toward a quick, efficient and painless close. I recommend Melanie without hesitation!
Melanie and her Team did an outstanding job from the beginning to close - the process was painless and enjoable!

Sr Software Development Manager
We needed to close sooner in order to take care of move-out logistics and schedule. Melanie and hear team did excellent job meeting an aggressive target. Excellent communication with the lender and extra effort resulted in the ahead of schedule closing, despite the all challenges and uncertainties brought by COVID-19 virus situation.
We were extremely satisfied and grateful.

Thank you!
