"Over the past 30 years, I have handled thousands of closings and worked with virtually all of the major title companies in the greater Chicago area. I rely upon Proper Title for the fastest turnaround time and best service in the business."
–David S. Gordon, Attorney at Law
"My firm has had the pleasure of doing business with Proper Title for several years, essentially since their inception. The people at Proper Title—from my representative to the underwriters and closers—are all experienced, top-notch professionals. These individuals, and all of the behind-the-scenes people, make my life and the lives of my clients much, much easier."
–Michael Grabill, Olson, Grabill & Flitcraft
"I have had the pleasure of working with Proper Title for several years now. I have been practicing exclusively residential real estate law for 18+ years and efficiency, accuracy and responsiveness are essential elements in any title company that I work with. I can say, without reservation, that Proper Title delivers all three with consistency. Dave is available – what seems like 24/7 – to resolve any issues that arise on my files. Title examiners are available to answer my questions within hours if not minutes. And each and every closer that I have worked with is both knowledgeable and professional. Remote closings are essential to my busy practice and Yuri’s familiarity with my office has made the remote closings seamless. I look forward to working with all of the people at Proper Title in the future – to keep things running smoothly with my real estate transactions. "
–Jennifer M. Baratta, Attorney at Law
"I would be remiss if I did not publicly praise Proper Title—beginning with the Northbrook office closer, Harriet. My first several loan deals closed with in less than one hour. That just does NOT happen. Typically it's 90 minutes—often two hours—from A to Z. Clearly, Harriet is very well prepared before parties walk into her closing bay.
For one deal, she gave me a heads up the day before closing after a later-date title search revealed a recently recorded second my client had forgotten to tell me about. That heads up—something that just doesn't happen with other title companies—allowed me to solve the problem that evening so the lender team could come through in the morning. By the time I arrived at the closing, Harriet had already ironed everything out.
These are just a few examples of the extraordinary service that separates Proper Title from the pack.
In the Loop office, Patrick, Sharon and Ismet have been excellent closers for many years—time and time again, deal in and deal out. They are great in skill level as well as temperament and personality, so we have to be careful not to take that excellence for granted.
The entire Proper Title team has been outstanding, from customer service reps Pete and Dave to title examiners Fran and Keith. Recently I closed deals in the new Irving Park Road office, and closers Yuri and Kenan showed why they have been added to the Proper Title team.
Many thanks and much appreciation to everyone at Proper Title for the excellent customer service, and a shout out to the many behind-the-scenes staff members for being so efficient and professional, and for exceeding expectations. "
