"Cindy, Today I had a closing at the Woodbury Office. My customer, Dan Khambata requested Jen at Title Smart. 5 loans, all refinances. Jen was so professional and efficient. There were some glitches on the bank end, and she just handled everything in stride. Needless to say, I learned some things that will be helpful in the future and my customers were happy. Also, while waiting for the checks, Jen made time to come visit with me. You have an excellent closer in Jen and a future resource for me! Thank you,"
Rita PechmannVice President, Lake Area Bank
"Amber was fantastic. I had trouble with my lender at closing and Amber was a fierce advocate on my behalf. I felt like she was really on my side and cared about my experience. She worked with me for over 4.5 hours to close despite the lender issues. Two thumbs up and five stars! Thank you Amber!"

"Lori, so nice to meet you today! We still can't get over the incredible service, coming out to our house and saving us so much time. As you could see, my husband, is having a hard time sitting and standing right now after the surgery, so your visit was very welcomed and appreciated! TitleSmart is lucky to have such a thoughtful member!"
"Good Afternoon Inge & Shari, I would like to thank you both from the bottom of my heart on behalf of my clients and myself for all of your efforts. I am sorry for all of the extra issues with this case. I know you would say that’s part of the job, but truly you went above and beyond what’s usual for a normal transaction. Please know that my clients are so appreciative for all of the 11th hour superhuman efforts. It was wonderful to see how relieved and thankful they are for closure on the matter. Thank you again! I always appreciate you both, but now I even have more reasons!! (Yes, I always brag on you both when I can…) Until next time…Blessings!"
"Thank you LoriTeam!!! For your professional contribution on the above property. Your knowledge and speed on which you close these difficult transactions is amazing ?"
"Michelle, your customer service response is outstanding please forward this to your management. Thank you!"
"Laura, I know I’ve said this before - you rock at your job! You reply quickly and are on top of everything all the time. I told Sandy we could not have landed with a better assistant than working with you. Just thought I’d say it again."
"Roberta did our closing. We got our money and everything was great. We are really impressed with how fast you always were with your replies to our questions — A+ customer service."
"Hello Cindy, my name is Scott Labeda and I worked with Alanna Warren for a home over on Shakopee that recorded recently (Monday). As I am sure you are already aware, you have a FANTASTIC representative in Alanna. She went above & beyond & took care of an extremely stressful situation (for all individuals involved, including her, I am sure). We were in an extreme time crunch due to a divorce settlement in a different state that required some last-minute (hours) brainstorming to get everything to work & she was a fantastic asset to us. I have worked with dozens of Title/Escrow representatives over the years & I am not sure if any of them would have handled things as professionally & courteously. She was able to get everything completed when we thought there would be little chance; in all honesty, we were working up contingencies (with little luck) assuming that we wouldn't be able to get the home over on Shakopee finalized in time."
"Hi Amber. Closing days before the “stay safe at home order” was given and while social distancing was in place was a surreal experience. TitleSmart professionals were calm and efficient. Very comforting to get through a long process quickly and safely. Thank you all!"
"Alanna, I have been a real estate attorney for nearly 30 years. I have been very impressed at the speed at which you have put this together. You have moved much faster than I would have thought possible."
"Alanna, I want to share with you the compliments to you and your organization concerning how professional and organized the paperwork for my closing was prepared. I was very impressed! Thanks for all your expertise and care."
"Thank you so much Michelle for taking such good care of the Re-Fi of our cabin. We appreciate all you and your office did for us."

She is excellent!"

"Kim provides one-stop shopping for real estate title/closing services. Her attention to detail is impeccable. She is very well-organized, personable and expedient in all types of communications. Even though Kim works for a company unrelated to mine, our professional relationship blurs that line and often makes me feel as if she is simply another department in my own company. We are in our fifth year of working together and I could not imagine working with anyone else for my clients’ real estate title/closing services."
Eric DeBakerMBA, Supply Chain Management Professional
"Kim Parsons has been the closer on several of my real estate transactions and I’ve had excellent results. She maintains a calm, professional attitude even during challenging situations.

"Krischelle, Our closing went great. It was very fast and pleasant. I would definitely recommend! Thanks so much!"
"Cindy, we just want to thank and recognize the outstanding professionalism of Janine Hanson for her assistance in the closing recently. There were a number of last minute legal complications on this transaction including ownership, documents, out of town parties, etc. We could not have completed this sale were is not for Janine. She was very timely and thorough in her communication of what needed to be done. She was on top of all the details and committed to the success of this transaction. It was a pleasure to work with Janine and we thank her for her personal commitment in supporting us throughout this process. Sincerely Mike & Geri"
Mike & GeriHomebuyer
"We were selling my parents house & had TitleSmart as the closing team. We had the Lori team and everything went very smoothly! They suggested that I could pre-sign the papers a couple of days earlier, so I did that, it was at another of their offices that was closer to my work. I would recommend TitleSmart for anyone selling or refinancing."
"Kishack and Team: Thank you for the great job you did on this file. What a mess it was from start to finish and not many could have pulled it off and closed it. Your team really went above and beyond dealing with this file and it didn’t go unnoticed. You have proved yourself and your team to be a valuable asset to my company and we greatly appreciate you for that and your professionalism. I will keep you in mind for future deals and your bilingual abilities for our Hmong clients."
"Wanted to let you know that Angela is absolutely AMAZING. She helped us out when we really needed it and got the job done. I have always loved with working with Titlesmart anyway as your team has it together. KUDOS TO ALL!!!!"
"This is a note to let you know what extraordinary service my buyers and I received last week from Amy Bakke. There is no doubt in my mind that this would not have closed without Amy’s professionalism and absolute dedication to her work. This was a very complicated file with two attorneys on the sellers side, and a listing side closer who was uncertain on how to handle the situation. Amy took charge of handling the sellers’ side attorneys, managed a very confused seller, and made my buyer feel like it was all going to work out. The property was supposed to close on May 15, then May 17th, and finally closed very late in the afternoon on May 18th…..with me having to remote in, as I had to secure the property. Amy oversaw my drafting of several amendments to manage the issues/delays, and never made us feel like we were putting her out. She dedicated her week to making this happen through 3 closing attempts. That is amazing. In another closing earlier this year, I had an elderly seller in a nursing home, and a trustee deed where one of the parties had died. Amy had to meet with the seller’s attorney and one of her children to finalize how all documents needed to by executed. Further, Amy went to Burnsville to get signatures, so my seller did not have to be transported to closing. Again….above and beyond her job description and always with a smile. I feel very privileged to have Amy as a partner in my business. Amy always, always, goes the extra mile to make my clients feel confident that this major transaction in their life has been handled with the greatest care and professionalism. Amy is extraordinarily competent, and it is clear at closings that other closing agents feel confident in working with her."
"Hello Inge and Shari. I am overwhelmed by over 70 files in several states! There is so much going on it's very exciting, and frustrating, and overwhelming! You might know what I mean... You two are ON IT. More than anyone else that I work with, and I wanted to say thank you! You make my job and my life so much better knowing that you are going above and beyond to help our agents and our clients. Thank you so much. Have a great day!"
"TitleSmart in Edina did a FABULOUS job from beginning to end! My husband and I closed on our first home last week, and we were very impressed with the overall Title process. TitleSmart was always extremely professional, responsive and helpful. We received quick answers to any of our questions, which is very important when dealing with so many people during the loan application phase. We received documents and updates very promptly, which was always reassuring that we had chosen the right team to work with. This was the one stress-less item on our long checklist for purchasing our home. Instructions were clear throughout each step, and we felt comfortable that they were handling the operations. A big shout out to Erika Blegen, Lori Weaver & Tana Gygi! Thank you!"
"I'm a real estate agent in the area and have had the good fortune of working with Nicole Paulson and her team at TitleSmart for several closings. I have been blown away by how professional, responsive, timely, and just plain AWESOME they are! On multiple occasions Nicole and her team have gone out of their way to make things the best possible experience for me and my clients. Their customer service is not just top notch, it is above and beyond. I would highly recommend them to anyone! Recently I was asked to work with another title company by a client I was working with -- I have realized just how lucky I am to work with Nicole at Title Smart. They are really a cut above everyone else in the Twin Cities. Thank you, Nicole!"
"Hi Lynn, I just wanted to say thank you for making this happen and helping us close this one! You're an asset to us all."
"Annette, I know you were feeling pretty sick for the closing yesterday and just wanted to say a big thank you again for pushing through and coming in for my client to close on time! That was impressive. I really appreciate it and hope you feel better soon. Happy New Years!"
"Nicole Paulson has helped my wife, Marnie, and I over the years. Our friend and realtor made the introduction years back. We counted the other day a total of 7 closings you have done for us! I wanted to take a moment and thank you and your team for all their hard work and effort. My realtor was going to introduce you to me a few weeks ago, but you were not around. I am very impressed with your people and your operation. Nicole has been nothing short of spectacular."

We had a last minute change due to closing of our buyer’s house getting pushed back and she came to Woodbury just so we wouldn’t have to drive out to Edina. I really appreciate the help from you and your team on both of our closings!"

"Angela, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for getting my transaction closed. I know it’s not easy rescheduling and squeezing more closings in this time of year, and especially late in the week. Without getting too sappy, I’d just like to say that I continue to be amazed by you and your team at TitleSmart. Each and every time it is such great peace of mind knowing that you are on the job and that my clients are in such exceptional hands. Thank you for all that you do."

"Michelle!!! Thank you for your email below. We closed on Monday because of you! We would've been weeks out if you hadn't gone outside the boundaries of your responsibility and driven the issues to completion. There's an air of leadership about you that's so valued! You look for opportunities to take responsibility. You're a team player and your knowledge in your industry is second to none. You accept new challenges and have absolute commitment to the pursuit of excellence. You're the utmost professional and you've got great attention to detail! You are absolutely effective and always deliver. YOU GET THE JOB DONE! Thank you, Michelle!"

My life has been a bit of whirlwind since closing so I hadn’t had a chance to look at the gift bag you provided until today. I LOVE THE SPOON!!!! What a great housewarming gift. I will think of that day every time I use it. It was a particularly jovial closing. Wishing you the best in the future."

"I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Nicole & her team. They are such a pleasure to work with, always professional, easy to contact, willing to help, prompt in their replies & go above/beyond with every transaction. Just recently Nicole & her team noticed that one of our members were not homesteaded like they should be on a REFI. At the closing Nicole came prepared with documents/instructions on how to get this fixed so our members would save $ on taxes going forward. This is just one of the many examples that Nicole & her team have treated our members with so much care & I really appreciate that kind of dedication. I wanted to make sure that their leader knew what a wonderful team that they have working for them. So thank you thank you thank you for being so awesome!"

Things leading up the closing between the Realtors and the Loan officer had my daughter and future son in-law wondering if anything would go smoothly.

"I have been working with TitleSmart for a just over a year now, and I could not be happier with the service they provide. The people I have worked with there are amazing, always quick to respond when I need something and are super friendly. As a processor with many Minnesota purchases – I wish all my members could use them – they have their process down to a science. They have great turnaround times with our title requests and always provide everything we need, without having to send them multiple request emails. I feel like they make the title process smooth for all parties involved! Keep up the great work!!"
Wendi HillLoan Processor
"I'm writing to sing the praises of one of your closers! First, I want to give you some context. I've been in the business for just two years, but had the privilege of closing 27 files so far this year. I've worked with a number of title companies, but hadn’t work with TitleSmart directly for my clients. However, every time TitleSmart was on the other side of the transaction I was always impressed with the closers at the table. After shopping around for title companies the lightbulb finally went off and I looked you up online. I was drawn to Amber via her profile which focused on punctual communication and excellent client service with a cheerful disposition (that's my vibe with my clients as well). So, I've sent Amber two files so far, one of which pre-signed today. My clients had a lot of questions and special circumstances and Amber handled them with an amazing amount of grace, positivity, poise and professionalism and went above and beyond in every way. Amber even went out of her way to even make sure the lockbox was properly taken care of and not to mention, she was so kind and understanding with me as well as I worked my way through various tricky details of the transaction. I am so grateful for Title Smart and for Amber! This makes all the difference in the world, not just for the tough clients, but for friends and family too! To have the closing portion, and the LAST interaction of the process be positive is so critically important. Thank you and your team for the work you do! Needless to say, you've won me over. All my files are headed your way!!! Have a great week"
Jennifer BortelRealtor, M.A.
"Thank you so much for all you did to make this all happen! Both of you are the best! We will never forget all Michelle did to make all this happen!

We send all our Love to you both. You should come visit sometime."

"Thank you Cindy. I must say I really enjoy working with Amber at Title Smart - she is great to work with! I appreciate all the work you have done to put together such an amazing team!"
"These are the benefits of working with true professionals, and we appreciate the effort. Working with you and your staff has been as easy as it has been working with our real estate agents. This transaction constitutes the fifth home I've sold and the sixth purchased over the course of my travels and I can easily say the process has never been as smooth and painless as it has in moving from this townhouse to the house we are buying. While I have no doubt the actual move will have us stressing when it comes, it's a relief to know the transfer of the properties is good to go. Thanks very much and we look forward to seeing you at closing!"

"Inge Andre has been an exceptional closer. She is detailed, great communication, and more! I send her a real estate transaction and don't have to worry about it. She is very quick to respond. She gives me information, closing notices, etc. before I even ask. I never have to "chase" her to get information. Our clients really like her as well, I only hear positive feedback!"
Hayley ThielTeam Tork Real Estate
"Last week we had the privilege to work with Miss Nicole Paulson and we can't stop raving about her to everyone we know! Honest to god, she was the best part about this entire (first-time) home-buying experience; forget about our agent, the seller, and our lender.. I just wanted to tell you and give credit where credit is due that you've got a remarkable closer on your team and we're so grateful that she was our Closer. Our agent bailed on us last minute and we had so many questions and we both felt like she took us under her wing and made certain that we understood everything. We left feeling like she was our new best friend! Thanks so much, I can't wait for another future opportunity where we can close another deal at Title Smart. Most grateful!"

"I have worked with Krischelle since 2008. She is an exceptional closing specialist. Over the years I have asked her countless questions, which she has always been able to answer or help me work through. I am confident that when I give a file to her for closing, that it will be done well, and on time. Krischelle also provides a high level of customer service to our mutual clients. She is patient and explains things well and makes sure they understand. I am a broker and recommend her to all of the agents at my company."
"Ladies, (Cindy, Julie and Jenna) I want to thank all of you for the work you've done to make today's closings go so smoothly. XXOO's for all."

"Michelle Tiede was a great asset in helping this loan getting closed in a timely manner. She maintained a very positive attitude even after a delay. Michelle was invaluable in the coordination between all the parties involved. She rearranged her schedule to meet the needs of the client, even though it meant a two hour drive one way. I look forward to working with her and TitleSmart in the future. Thanks again for all the help Michelle!!!"
"Our closing was only delayed about 2 hours. Didn't cause any issues for time with anyone except yourself. As much as I was looking forward to another closing with you at the head of the table, closing went just fine. Your closer at the Edina location was perfect and represented Title Smart like one of your best closers. She was a top shelf professional and was charmingly light hearted while maintaining an upbeat demeanor. We had a minor delay once all documents were signed. The wire hadn't cleared yet so the closer kept everyone informed and she spoke with good cheer. There wasn't a shoulder shrug or heavy sigh in the conference room when she delivered the news of the delay. The wire did come together only 15-20 minutes after the closing had finalized. You have one of the finest closers on your staff in Edina. Our buyer said "this was the smoothest closing ever"! (buyer is 6 months pregnant and this is her 3rd Real Estate closing). The closer's middle name might as well have been Wow! Thank you Mrs. Koebele!"
"Cindy Koebele and her team at TitleSmart are truly the best in the business. As a real estate broker, it's important that we form the best strategic alliances. We've found that and more in TitleSmart. When I turn over my clients to their very capable hands I know that the details will be right and done on time. Beyond just doing an excellent job I am particularly impressed with their responsiveness and professionalism. I always get an accurate and thoughtful response faster than I've ever experienced. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know. Thanks for everything that you do for us!"

"I just wanted to thank the both of you for your time yesterday! Not only was it a pleasure seeing the two of you but I received positive feedback from our agents as well. In addition to the cookies, pens and pizza cutters we all improved our understanding of the title world (and Title-Smart.com :) See you at the next closing!"

"Inge is a well-spoken highly motivated individual who openly communicates status of my files with me as they go through their preparation for closing. Her work ethic is second to none and her ability to perform under pressure is second nature, she handles it with ease and confidence. Her timely updates, professional manner and ability to be a calming influence make Inge an exceptional person and a great asset to my business. Inge's great personality and ability to make others comfortable in the closing environment are a true blessing to myself and my clients. If you are using Titlesmart for closings, request Inge, you will be pleased with her service."
"Everyone at TitleSmart has been wonderful and done a great job with the process."

"I wanted to write to you and express more formally what I hope I have already expressed in person; that is my most profound and sincere thanks for your facilitating the sale of my house. Accomplishing this transaction was of great benefit both the buyer and myself. The buyer purchased a very good home in an excellent neighborhood at a very good price. I was able to sell a house that was in foreclosure and emerge from the whole process essentially debt free. These are two hugely important outcomes in both of our lives and for the accomplishment of this you deserve a lot of credit. The transaction involved dealing with a good deal of incompetent and obnoxious conduct on the part of the banks involved. I am sorry you had the frustration of dealing with them. These financial and property transactions are of such importance in peoples' lives. It is a pleasure to find someone such as yourself who is both ethical and competent. Again you may be assured you have my most sincere thanks. Best wishes!"
"Thank you Jenna, I am truly impressed at your helpfulness and speed! I will tell everyone who will listen about the outstanding service you have. I hope it will bring you many closings/clients."
"My wife and I requested and had a sale close with your company this past Friday. At the closing I told your associate why we requested your company, you actually, but that makes no difference, and though I asked her to tell you, I just had to make sure and send you this letter as well. I really believe that when people go an extra mile, you are obliged to reward them with your business. It doesn’t happen that often, and that makes it even more deserving. You were the closing agent when we bought our home five years ago. At the time, the house was in bank possession and happened to have a $6,000 assessment against it. Our real estate agent hadn’t been able over the course of the previous month to get anywhere with the bank in having that reduced or paid and we proceeded to closing expecting that we would have to pay it. At closing, you heard my wife say how disappointed she was that this expense remained, at which point you paused the closing, left the room and ten minutes later, you returned and informed us that you had gotten through to someone at the foreclosing bank who agreed to pay the assessment. We have been waiting for five years to give you our return business. We just wish and wanted you to know how much that meant. We had just gotten married that previous week (expensive) and had a big remodel waiting for us ahead as the house was distressed (expensive). That $6,000 was precious to us and we will always appreciate what you did. Those words aren’t strong enough, but we will. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful career. When we can help you, we will."
"We had a very complicated house closing. There were attorneys and Realtors working through some of the issues for a couple of months. At closing, Lori helped to solve several of the problems, going above and beyond to get the job done. Thank You!!"
"Cindy, Thanks for nice smooth closing today. My clients were very happy with your service. Great job!"

"Diane and I want to thank you for your helping us refinancing our home and cabin. We realize how busy you all are and appreciate your attention and courtesy. In spite of the pressures you all must feel and your incredibly busy schedules you made us feel as though we were your only clients. That is a rare talent and is part of why you are as good as you are. I look forward to meeting John Robinson on Monday and remain a pleased client of Well Fargo and of course Title-Smart."
"I have been using Title Smart for pretty much everything, they are EXTREMELY solid, efficient, great with customer service issues and most importantly realtors LOVE THEM! They are absolutely competitive on the rates, but to me the professionalism and customer service is unmatched, seriously the best service I have seen in any industry. Give them a look, let me know if you have questions or reach out to Cindy or Nicole for questions. P.S. they bake really great cookies all day long!"
Brad NolanMortgage Consultant
"The team at TitleSmart in Edina is an integral piece of my preferred firm's preferred partner network. They are consistent, easy to work with, and are capable of thinking outside the box when I have obstacles to closing. I highly recommend them to my clients & colleagues."
"Cindy Koebele and the ladies at TitleSmart are the best closers you will ever meet. They go above and beyond the call of duty. Even the most difficult short sale file will close on time. We give all of our business to Cindy because we know she will take care of our clients. We recommend Cindy and TitleSmart to every realtor we know."

"Cindy, thanks for your guidance and excellent work. My sisters and brothers were amazed at how smoothly the closing went. I hope I will have the opportunity to refer additional title work to your company. Take care!"
"I wanted to say again how impressed I was with the way closing went and how smooth you ran everything. I have been in customer service for years and still am in it and could definitely tell that you enjoy what you do and have that mindset of exceeding customer's expectations. You surpassed my expectations! I already homesteaded and am going to mail my taxes in tomorrow! I hope you have a good day and I will for sure pass your name and company on!"
"I've written this recommendation of your work to share with others. Nicole doesn't know the word 'can't'...when there is a problem...she jumps forward with real solutions and maintains the positive spirit that I want my clients to experience with their real estate transactions! My Buyers and Sellers love working with her!"

"We are so excited to have Lynn Gleason, a closer with Title Smart in our office. With over 13+ years in the business she is a true pro. She is very relaxed, professional and extremely accommodating to her clients. Lynn is organized and a proactive communicator. After closings, clients and agents will often be talking about their experience as they come down the hall, and everything is positive when they speak of the closing and of Lynn."
Angie NichollsOffice Manager
"During the period of time that I worked with Lynn we dealt with many complicated transactions. Lynn always maintained her cool and sense of humor. Lynn went above and beyond to get the job done and get us to the closing table! An added bonus was always feeling like she had extra time to explain something I might not understand even when I knew she was extremely busy. Thanks Lynn! Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity"
Katie PetersonHome buyer
"I have worked with Lynn in her capacity as a real estate closer on numerous real estate transactions and found that she prides herself on getting the job done in a professional manner and on time, which is critical for all the parties. I would recommend her to other real estate professionals. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity"
Thomas Blomberghired Lynn as a real estate closer in 2006, and hired Lynn more than once
"I just wanted to pass something along to all of you. On Saturday I got a call from one of our sellers that she needed a quit claim deed drafted immediately as her mother was in coma and needed the quit claim deed right away. At first I thought it was going to be close to impossible to get this done, but I called Nicole and she answered her phone on a Saturday afternoon and did not think twice about drafting the quit claim deed. I told Nicole that the mother was in the hospital and Nicole offered to go to the hospital to have the quit claim deed signed. It is so nice to know that we have someone like Nicole that is willing to go the extra mile, I know if we would have called any other title company we would have not gotten a response until Tuesday, if lucky maybe Monday. Nicole has always done a great job for our office she has her whole heart in what she does and actually cares about the file. I can honestly say I have never had a problem with any file she has closed for me and I think everyone else can say the same thing. I'm sure if we went to the other agents they would not be able to say the same thing about their closers. I know that if you want a file to go smooth and not have any worries, be sure to send it to Nicole. As she will close the file and you or your clients will not have to worry, we are truly lucky to have her."

"My wife & I have had the opportunity to use the closing services of Lori Weaver on several of our properties. We have always found Lori to deal with our closings in way that is very intelligent, efficient, ever so competent, and creative—when needed to get the job done. When Lori was the closer, we could relax because we knew that it would be done right, on time, and with a minimum of fuss for us. We recommend Lori to anyone who wants a closing done right and without worry. P.S. we are not related."

"Lori, thank you so much for the smooth closing. It was nice to get that chunk of money back. I was not expecting that at all. Figuring on the high side is always nice, no one wants to pull out their check book and pay more. I have been to 6 closings in my life time, and I have never seen one go this quickly and smoothly. Thanks again for all your hard work, and tolerating my pestering you about the numbers! Have a great day!"
