All the escrow companies in Montclair are good. Consider interviewing one of the officers in each company.

Hi Claire,

I second the recommendations below: My personal favorites (it sure is good to have great choices and it also is important to have working relationships with a couple of Title Companies, in my opinion) Glad all the phone numbers were provided by our very helpful colleagues! Trulia is wonderful.

1. Old Republic Title: Effie Yee is the rep and is fantastic..call on her for any help, advice, direction or suggestions. Lyn Murray there is one of the most efficient and experiences escrow officers, and if there are challenges, she is the best. I had to have an ex wife of a client sign docs in Germany, and Lyn got it done through the embassy there! Cristina Tabada is great too.

2. Chicago Title: My favorites are Noel Sommerfeld and Stephanie Kelley. I've worked with both of them a lot over the years. Noel used to be at Fidelity.

There are good ones at Fidelity up there as well as Placer and First American. I think Montclair has a wealth of great escrow people!

Good luck,
Ellen

I use Old Republic Title w/Cristina Tabada, EO. They're a great company to work with and Cristina is a pleasure to work with.
