Branch Testimonials

"I have just had the pleasure of working with Tina Erwin as my Escrow Officer for my new house. Often times people are quick to inform management about bad service but rarely about excellent service.  I wanted to let you know that Tina has been AWESOME to work with. Buying our house and selling our old house was a very stressful time and we made it through with Tina's help.  She was very responsive and never ignored our calls with questions or status updates.  Tina went the extra mile to work with me in closing on time with my new house. Tina also has demonstrated a lot of patience throughout this process. Just wanted to let you know that you have a great staff member on your team and working with Tina on this was terrific."

"Kathy Archambault assisted in the closing of our new home.  What an outstanding example of service!  She worked closely with our agent and our lender. She was friendly, knowledgeable and, from my perspective, went above and beyond.  She could have easily delayed our closing from late in the day, but felt the urgency of the parties involved. In addition she was prepared, swift and respectful.  The only negative was the moving that I did that night! I hope to have another loan to close this week, and I am going to ask for her if it is my choice."

Thank you for having one of the best title companies in Arizona and you can always count on my business."
"I very recently had the pleasure of working with Jaime during what I can only describe as a very painful process buying a home in Surprise, AZ.  She was by far one of the most competent, kind, and positive people I've ever worked with.  Having Jaime enter the process really turned things around for us and in the end I actually felt some optimism once she was involved.  She really worked well with my real estate agent as well which I very much appreciated.  The agent who works with all sorts of people in the industry also commented on how great it was to work with Jaime.  I wanted to send a little note to let you know how much I appreciated her efforts to help us buy our family home in AZ. I am one very happy customer of Clear Title and Jaime Horst!"
"In March we purchased a condominium in Fountain Hills and Jaime Horst was our Escrow Officer. It was our first experience in purchasing property in Arizona and Jaime made the process seamless.
