Darleen has been integral part of our business over the past 20 years. She handles every transaction professionally, paying attention to detail and solving problems before they arise. Throughout each transaction, Darleen maintains open communication and is very responsible to any questions or concerns. She works diligently and efficiently ensuring that everything flows seamlessly and that each transaction comes to a successful close.

Darleen has extensive knowledge and stays informed on the most recent regulations and industry standards. I recommend Darleen to our clients on a regular basis without hesitation. She has always been and continues to be an absolute pleasure to work with.

When I started doing business opportunities five years ago, I just changed from the residential field. At that time the housing market was difficult and nothing was moving for me. I had a client who wanted to sell a restaurant business, but I didn’t know much about “Bulk Sale” transactions. I went to classes and seminars trying to understand more about this area. I managed to close a couple of deals, but it was very painful because the escrow officers I used were not very helpful and did not have much knowledge about Bulk Sale transactions either.

I was introduced to Darleen Sweet who is friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the “Bulk Sale” procedure. Darleen Sweet is the best “Commercial Bulk Sale Specialist” I have ever worked with. We have closed several transactions together over the past 4 years and I have become more familiar within this industry because she made it so easy for me. I would recommend her without any hesitation.

I have been involved in Hospitality Finance for over 20 years and Darleen Sweet has been the Escrow Officer on the majority of my transactions. Darleen is always very professional and responsive throughout the process. Her knowledge of the many components of a hospitality transaction is second to none. Darleen Sweet is a true professional in her industry and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for the best escrow experience.

It’s always a pleasure to work with Darleen Sweet’s hospitality team at Ticor Title.

Thanks Darleen for always having someone available that offers outstanding service.

I have been working with Darleen Sweet for over 7 years and she has done an outstanding job on my escrows. She is professional and handles all her escrows with integrity. Many situations can arise during a bulk sale transaction and because she is so knowledgeable and has so much experience, she finds a way to resolve the issue. I would highly recommend her to any broker that needs a bulk sale specialist.

We've engaged Ticor in the past, but not extensively as our allegiance was tied to years of business relationships. It was comforting to learn that David Noble, Nick Doshi and the title team had moved to Ticor. Even more encouraging was to learn that Darleen and Lucinda were also recruited into your escrow division. With this team, I know that our hospitality real estate transaction needs will be in great hands.


On the transaction of the Mendocino hotels, I would also take this opportunity to thank Ticor for making the escrow process a breeze. Furthermore, I also want to extend the appreciation on the last minute title works that made the transaction possible. As you may have learned, Brand X was originally facilitating the transaction per Seller's request, but had failed to respond on repeated requests. Darleen was able to quickly align with David and made the deal happen. With the cares that the title and escrow teams illustrated, we know where to go to in our future transaction opportunities.


Indeed, caring is your competitive edge! Thank you and your team again for all the professional works demonstrated.
