Testimonials


Jennifer Barnes, you are unbelievable.  I am amazed by how calm you always are despite all that I ask of you.  Your team is the model team.  Escrow is a big part of our transactions, yet the easiest, when I reach out to all of you.  Thank you for taking that load of my shoulders.

I have been in the real estate industry for 17 years. I can honestly say Karen Ormond is by far the best Escrow Officer on the planet. Not only are the transactions bulletproof, but Karen is the kind of person who does not measure time or effort. Often when I’m leaving the office at 7:00 or 8:00 in the evening, her car is still in the parking lot because she’s still working! It is not uncommon for her to be working on files on Saturday or Sunday either. I would fight tooth and nail even when representing a buyer to have her handle the escrow. Needless to say, I never give up escrow when controlling the sale as a listing agent. Bottom line, there is no one better than Karen!!

I have been a full time real estate agent since 1991, and during my career I have encountered many excellent escrow officers. Out of all of them, one stands out: Jennifer Barnes. She is very knowledgeable, efficient and trust worthy. At the same time, she has a very warm personality which puts buyers and sellers at ease. I think she has the mind of a lawyer, always knowing where she stands with the laws and rights of everyone involved in a transaction. When she handles my escrows, I feel confident that everything will go well as far as escrow goes; sometimes she even foresees possible problems in a transaction and makes my team and I aware of them so that we are able to find solutions in time. Throughout the years she has resolved problems that other escrow officers could not have, allowing us to close our escrows. I have received emails from Jennifer Barnes on weekend and nights, which never happens from other escrow officers. She is very committed to her work, always striving to be the best. I see Jennifer as the best escrow officer I have known.

I wanted to acknowledge the outstanding job Jennifer Barnes has done on the escrow in which I represented the buyers. This deal has been nothing short of a challenge since the day we wrote the offer. Jennifer has emerged as the shining star. She has been incredibly professional, helpful and useful throughout the process. Had it not been for her intervention a couple of times, we may not have been able to close this deal. As an agent for almost 30 years I have dealt with many escrow officers throughout my career, and Jennifer has been the rock star of this transaction.
