Janell pleasantly got our checks and closing docs printed at the UP Ticor office within an hour of my asking today. And she did it cheerfully despite my flippant and officious attitude.

I have been using Janell and her team at Ticor title and escrow to close my real estate transactions for several years and all I can say is that she has provided superior service on every transaction I have sent her. I cannot say enough about
the high level of professionalism she continues to show time and time again.

Maybe I should wait until we are closed on my transaction to say this but I have been so impressed with Janell and her team that there is no risk in that. The team responds in a professional yet friendly manner quickly and accurately. I have not bought or sold real estate for a number of years but closing on my sale and now work on my purchase of a new home has been far less stressful than it might have been had it not been for the responsive and personal service of team Janell. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Janell or come back in the future.

Janell is the epitome of professionalism and I so appreciate how she cares about educating clients at their signing. Our clients leave feeling great about their experience and never as though they are just another transaction.

I totally love working with Janell, Tawn and the whole team. I feel they have their professional hats on everyday. Their customer service is supreme. Both I and my customers feel like they are treating us special and I would bet all agents who are working with them feel the same. I highly recommend Ticor to everyone I can because of them, the customer service department and the support staff at Ticor. In fact, I have recommended Ticor to the City of Tukwila, Derek Speck the Economic Director to switch his business to Ticor. He feels like he is just a number with his current title company and gets no customer service.

Janell Thalman is outstanding. There is no other LPO/Escrow Closer I would rather work with then her. Janell and her team are always on the ball and make sure everything is done in a timely manner. I have been in this business for 11 years now and there is no one else I would rather work with by far. Thanks for all that you do Janell!

Janell closed an all cash purchase transaction for my company recently. I was so impressed with her awesome communication every step of the transaction. It was a pleasure closing with Janell and her team. I hope we work together again very soon.

Janell has always been great in handling the transactions in which I have worked with her.
In fact, she stood out to me on a transaction where the listing agent required her as the escrow agent. I was working with the buyer. I have since sent her listings of my own and will be closing one in just a couple of days.
Thanks Janell!

Janell and her team did the most incredible job handling our transaction. To say that Janell did more than a 100% effort is not giving her enough credit. He Professionalism, ability to think out of the box and extraordinary communication skills made a very unusual and challenging escrow run smooth. I have been a licensed realtor in CA for over 20 years. Janell is one of the best problem solvers and team payers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She is a shining example of "Patience being a Virtue"
Thanks to her, my daughter's dream home has just closed. I highly recommend her for all transactions. I will be doing another escrow in the Seattle area in the not to distant future and I guarantee my first call will be to Janell to handle it. If I could give her more than a 5 star recommendation I would. Thank You, Jan D and Genessa F.

I have been in real estate for 12 years and have worked with many different Title and Escrow companies. Not until I began working with Ticor Title and specifically with Kim Sutton and Janell Thalman did I realize how smooth a transaction can go! They have "had my back" so many times that I can't begin to thank them for their exceptional service and careful attention to details - small details that I sometimes miss - they are on top of every time. I highly recommend Kim and Janell and team to any agent looking to build a positive, successful and productive team!

Janell impresses with not only her knowledge but also her attitude. She is a growth minded young professional who demonstrates a willingness to improve at every opportunity. It is refreshing to work with an Escrow Closer who takes ownership and proactively collaborates with other team members to increase her business.
