Testimonials

For Donna Dixon: Donna—Thank you for being an awesome escrow officer. Without your ability to hang on, these hair-raising escrows would have been difficult to get done. Thank you for the follow-up on the trustee sale dates when there is a change on title. Thank you for making the real estate transaction easy again.

- Jose A. Reyes, Realtor

For Julie Parker: I just wanted to thank you for your dedicated work in successfully closing escrow on the Laguna Woods Village property. This was a quick escrow with many special requirements and your ability to remain calm and professional in your communications throughout the entire process made everything go very smoothly. Your knowledge and expertise enabled us to close on time and my buyer is extremely happy. You were a joy to work with! I would recommend Julie Parker at Coast Cities Escrow to anyone!

- Cindy Uhrik, Realtor




For Donna Dixon: Donna Dixon more than met 100% expectations. She made me feel as though I was family and had known her for years. She is very organized, efficient, smart, funny and very professional. She was always on top of the important information. I was thankful she made it all so easy. Thank you!

- Maria A. Trembly, Seller




For Julie Parker: I want to express my sincere appreciation and recognize the amazing job that Julie Parker did with a closing today. The escrow company selected by the Seller was unable to get a payoff demand after many attempts over the last 2 weeks and had given up. I went to Julie for help this morning because I didn’t know where else to turn. To make a long story short, she jumped into the middle of the nightmare and told me she’d do whatever she could to make it happen for our clients. Through perseverance and a few key industry contacts, she had all the issues resolved within 2 hours! The other escrow company had been trying to get this done for the last 2 weeks! This wasn’t even her escrow!! She clearly went out of her way to throw us a “life ring” at the 11th hour with a commitment to our success that is far above anyone’s expectations. Julie is truly one of our most valuable assets and we’re very lucky to have her as part of our team. I give her the highest recommendation possible and can assure you she has 100% of my loyalty for all future escrows. Julie unselfishly made things happen when others couldn’t! Most importantly, we have happy first time homeowners moving into their new home tomorrow.

- Dean Lueck, Realtor

For Beverly Toma:I recently had a listing referral that I gave to one of our Huntington Beach Brookhurst agents and had the pleasure of working with Beverly Toma. Beverly was so helpful and professional throughout the transaction that it made my job that much easier. She always included me in all of the email communication and I never had to question where we were in the process. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated that! She was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her on future transactions.

She is dedicated and works hard and I look forward to working with her in the years to come.

- Lily Campbell, Realtor




For Beverly Toma: I recently had the opportunity to work with Beverly on a transaction in Costa Mesa and I will say that I had a very pleasant experience. As a real estate broker, clear communication is the most important aspect of any real estate transaction and she was excellent when it came to that part. Beverly was always available for me and my team to answer any questions, concerns or requests we had throughout the escrow process. She was always extremely helpful and made my client and I feel as if our specific transaction was the most important one on her plate. If I can work with her again, I definitely will. She is very courteous and gets directly to the point ensuring no time is ever wasted. If we were not able to get a hold of Beverly, her team members were always there to assist and would jump right in to take care of us. Whatever systems she has in place are definitely effective and working. I highly recommend working with Beverly and using her for your escrow needs when possible. Thank you Beverly!
