Denise and her team have been an awesome asset to have for my home in Walnut Creek. Multiple times, even after transactions were complete, I’ve requested information or needed advice regarding refinance or what to expect and more and Denise has always lead me in the right direction. As a self employed contractor recognize people who work hard, Denise is at the top of that list!

Denise did a good job with our transaction. Home purchases or sales can be stressful types of transactions. It is definitely a plus to have someone like Denise handling crucial title transactions in such a competent manner! She gives really good explanations when signing is being completed. Much appreciated!

Denise and team are very customer focused. They go above and beyond to make sure that every detail is clearly communicated and taken care of. She made sure that when some financial details weren't obvious that she called and walked through them to clarify. She is truly excellent at what she does and I'd recommend her in the future.

Sorry this is such a late response, but I do want to thank you for your assistance with my escrow on Silver Lake. You were terrific. My buyer had owned property in another state and needed the detailed explanation that you provided.

Joan Edwards is so happy in her new home. This is my first escrow with Lawyer's Title and I hope there will be many more. I am very detailed and select my title officers on how I work.

Thanks again for your great service.

After moving to Kirkland.WA, I recently sold my house in California. Denise Guthrie was amazing at finding a notary near my new home in Washington, getting all documents in order and passed to the WA notary for easy signing and notarization. The sale went smoothly and on the day Denise said the house would close, thanks to Denise’s diligent follow-up. Great experience!

Sr Manager, Tesla Design Quality
I went into Denises office a couple times for my closing, her team was very helpful. She made it a point to come out on my first visit to say hi, which I thought was very nice, since she had been on a call with another client. When I did sit down with her at the closing, she went over everything and I felt comfortable, and understood what I was signing. Some times its really hard to understand everything, as you could be stressed and overwhelmed. I really liked doing business with Denise, and recommend her and her team.

Denise was amazing! She's organized, helpful, efficient and friendly. Buying a house can be stressful, but she streamlined everything we needed. She answered all of our many questions and even suggested ways for us to save money. It was such a wonderful experience and I credit her for making it so easy and actually fun. We laughed quite a bit during the process, which isn't something you expect from a title company. I highly recommend her.

I have worked with Denise and her team for over 20 years years and she brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and professionalism to the our industry. Most importantly she always takes my call, and alerts me of any potential issues or problems upfront. In my 30 year career I have worked with many escrow officers and I consider Denise and her team among the best in the Bay Area.

She always makes my clients feel special, she can always answer any questions and in the off chance she doesn't know the answer, she get it to me in a timely manor.
