I would like to thank Finnae and Gina for doing such a great job with the closing of our loan! Wonderful service and so responsive. It can be a harrowing experience closing a loan, so when your escrow company and the staff go the extra mile, it is so appreciated. Thank you also to Kim C. for going the extra mile and recommending a lender and then following through with closing! We would totally recommend Granite Escrow and Settlement services! Thanks all again!

Mark Mattes did an amazing job assisting me with the whole escrow process. He was very detail-oriented, has superb customer service skills and has prepared all documents for me to sign at once... hassle free! He made the whole process very convenient for me. Besides being very professional, he is very personable. I like doing business with someone whom I feel like I've known for quite sometime. Will definitely do another business with him when I purchase another home!

The minute I put a property into Escrow, Cory uses her expert knowledge to get the transaction completed easily and effortlessly. She is the neutral 3rd party ("Switzerland" I call her) that brings together all parties in the transaction. She communicates with both the buyer and the seller in the transaction, making sure that each side is providing proper information as it becomes due, as well as handling all monies and aspects of the transaction.  She does it all in a wonderfully friendly manner, and even though each transaction is different, Cory adjusts to fill any need. Cory has the honor of saying those final words that all buyers & sellers want to hear when a transaction has come to an end - "We're Closed" and there's truly no one better to pass that on!

Jenna Dannelley and Julie Parker just joined this company, I am a real estate sales agent and have been using this team for years. They are not only a delight to work with, I cannot think of a more thorough team, including weekends that will work with you, especially problem solving anything that may arise, and there are things that come up in this process. If I could give them a 10 star review I would 🙂

Working with Tami Darling was an absolute pleasure and helped our loan process go as smooth as possible. She is always very responsive and I would recommend her services to anyone handling real estate transactions.

I am in the middle of an escrow from hell and wanted to take the time out to write a review about how AMAZING Amie Won has been. I've used her before on a few escrows, but never really appreciated how hard she works for her clients. She really has my best interest at heart and takes the time to make me feel like my escrow is the most important one. I will only be using Amie and granite escrow for all future deals and I highly recommend everyone else do so as well. Thank you again Amie for your honesty, expertise and really going the extra mile.

I had a really great experience with Amie.  She was responsive, nice, informative -- all of the things I assume you want when going through Escrow.  I went to her office to sign docs, she made that process pretty easy.  Overall, for having gone through my first home sale, there were several times that I was thankful to have Amie on board.

Amie Won and her team were true professionals in every respect. They moved our escrow along efficiently and explained everything along the way.  Amie responded to all my questions (even on Saturday!).  I would definitely recommend Granite Escrow!

I've worked with Amie for several years now on multiple transactions.  She is diligent, provides great service and really understands the intricacies of complex transactions that we undertake. I've never been disappointed with her and recommend her services to my clients and investors.

I've been working with Granite Escrow Beverly Hills for years. Amie has been my go to Escrow Officer for good reason. She's always available for me and definitely has extensive knowledge in her field. She treated my clients with care and executed the transaction flawlessly.  I would gladly recommend Amie Won to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and dedicated escrow officer.

Amie Won of Granite escrow was superb in our multifamily deal. She kept everything running smoothly with no hiccups until close. My clients were very pleased with her level of service. Highly recommended!

This is the second teal estate transaction I've worked with Mark on - on both occasions he was supremely organized and efficient. I can't overstate how much peace of mind there is knowing that Mark is on our side for the title and escrow process - we know his attention to detail and professionalism mean we get things right the first time. If you're looking for a highly responsive, composed professional who will maximize turnaround and minimize stress I can't recommend Mark highly enough.

Mark A. Mattes was INVALUABLE during my very quick close. As I was stuck in meetings all day, he even drove from Beverly Hills to Torrance during rush hour so that I could sign the documents in time for the lender. He was professional, supportive and obviously hard working during a very stressful time. Thank you Mark!

Granite Escrow! Closing my most recent refinance like it was a piece of cake. Jennifer and Shari working along with my clients + internal staff - Knocked this out with ease. What I liked best is that we were all on the same page the whole time. No guessing about next steps, who does what, when will this close, etc...ALL parts were clear, professional, and handled with great care. You really made this easy, so more are coming!

My experience with Granite Escrow is only as a vendor who provides mobile notary services,  having said that I feel that they provide great service to their clients ; they are quick and efficient in paying for my services and their loan documents seem to be accurate and printed up on time.   Cheryl , Teri and Amie are escrow officers that I have worked with and they all do a great job !

Heidi was absolutely incredible from start to finish.  Super knowledgeable, always available, and made the process remarkably easy.  Thank you, Heidi!

I love Granite - Tami & Heidi & Cory are all awesome & so great to work with.  I sell about 20 - 25 properties per year in Corona del Mar and Newport and am always beyond ecstatic when our Escrow company is Granite.  They are responsive and on it - very customer service-oriented.  I've read the poor reviews and they are all very old - I actually had a bad experience myself years ago with an Escrow Officer there that's long gone, so I understand, but things have definitely changed for the better.  Much better.  Tami actually saved a deal when the other agent went off the deep end, and I've always been grateful for that.   I truly enjoy working with all of them and look forward to many more smooth transactions!

Truly amazing to work with there team, I look forward to many many more transactions to come!! Keep up the good work!!

As a Realtor who relies on escrow services to ensure a smooth transaction, I can say without any question that John Song at Granite is THE BEST escrow officer in the business. John is organized, professional, and extremely thoughtful. Furthermore, the company is a 3rd party unaffiliated company, which is important to many of our clients. I can't recommend them highly enough. Thanks John for your continued excellent service!!

I would highly recommend working with Finnae! From the very beginning, she worked effectively keeping my file moving along hitting all the deadlines and notifying me if we had to push a little more than usual to keep on track! She is the kind of person you want on your team, as a top producer we rely on our people who know how we work and what we expect and she is that kind of lady! She defiantly earned my future business, we need good strong communicators on our teams of professionals and she is a huge asset to running a smooth experience for our clients.

We’ve been working with Cory Schwab, escrow officer at Granite Escrow, for over ten years and trust all of our transactions in her very capable hands. Escrow is a vital part of all of our transactions (sales), for both the buyer and seller as well as the brokerages handling the sale. They are a neutral party that ensures all required documents get signed, loans are funded, buyer’s money is in place, and final recording of the sale is completed. Cory communicates with the buyer and seller throughout the transaction. She confirms that each side is providing proper information as it becomes due, and handles all monies and aspects of the transaction. Cory is super organized and makes what can sometimes feel like a stressful process easy to understand and, in the end, a great experience.

I'm a real estate developer and was referred to Amie from one of my brokers that we needed escrow services. I've only worked with Amie at Granite, so I can't speak to the rest of the office, but she has been the best and always goes above and beyond to make sure everything is tracking to close without hiccups. We've probably done around a dozen transactions and they've all gone smoothly and quickly. One of the buying agents on a transaction even commented on how good she was and I think she uses Granite as well now, too.

We just closed escrow and this company has been amazing!!!! I've dealt with few other companies who were simply ineffective. I worked with a pleasant woman named Amie Won and she was just so professional, efficient, and most importantly she gets it! She had all my documents on a timely manner and helped us close escrow the best way possible!! I highly recommend Granite escrow to everyone and plan on working with Amie in the future!! Thanks again guys!!

AMIE WON is the best! Had the best experience with her! Super professional and goes above and beyond for her clients! I've referred her many colleagues from my agency and all have had only positive feedback!

Granite Escrow in Beverly Hills is my go-to escrow services company. I'm a real estate broker and have worked with escrow officer Cory Schwab for almost 10 years. They are thorough and professional. When I get to choose escrow for my clients and the sale of their properties, there is never a question of which escrow company to call. Granite Escrow. Just my opinion, but it's obvious to me that some of the more "colorful" reviews here smack of competition planting fake reviews. Do the research. Granite is top notch. #escrow #realestate #beverlyhills
