Excellent service, great feedback and recommendations by the deed preparer, and I really appreciate the personalized service. The website is amazing, everything is well thought out, and all messages are saved, clear and easy to read. I wish my website was so easy to navigate!
Seriously, the person who worked on my account is awesome. They made recommendations about what to include and what not to include. They didn't make me feel dumb for asking questions about out-of-state service and filing procedures, and I will be using Deeds.com exclusively on my cases. Five stars !
