President, Owner

An example of passion and professionalism, Karen M. Danko created Emerald Glen Title Agency as a full-service title and escrow company dedicated to unparalleled customer service.

Her extensive career in the title and escrow industry began with a position as a title examiner and flourished into a role as Vice President of Operations.

With a love of helping people achieve their goals and a dedication to her community, she opened Emerald Glen Title Agency, Ltd., in 2005. Through the years, Karen has gained a wide array of skills and proficiencies that have helped her develop into the accomplished leader she is today. Karen is proud to be a pioneer in her profession as founder of one of only a small number of women-owned title companies in the region. But what truly distinguishes Karen from other title and escrow companies is her understanding that buying and selling real estate is the most important decision her clients will make in their lifetime. With that recognition always at the forefront of her thoughts, Karen sets high expectations for superior client relations at Emerald Glen.

RE/MAX Traditions

I just want to thank Kathy Longo and Karen Danko and the rest of the group at Emerald Glen Title for all the hard work you have done for my various property purchases and sales over the last 5 years. All of my transactions have run smoothly. It is great to be able to easily contact Emerald Glen with questions and to check on the progress of my deals. Emerald Glen Title has become a valuable part of my investment team.

Larry Varnick, Investor

RBL and Associates LLC, Evan Investments LLC

Being a Homebuilder, I have had the opportunity to work with pretty much every title company in Northeastern Ohio. I have found Emerald Glen to be the best. They make the process easy. They respond quickly to questions and are organized and prepared. I could easily join an affiliated title company and receive those benefits, but the service Emerald Glen Title provides outweigh the benefits of being in an affiliated business arrangement.

George Davis, President

ProBuilt Homes

I have used Emerald Glen Title for many years for my personal and business title transfers. Dealing with Karen and Kathy makes the process smooth and simple for all parties involved. Not all transactions are easy and many times they have discovered mistakes and worked diligently to research the issues to close in a timely manner. Besides Karen and Kathy, their complete staff has customer service as their first priority. I would highly recommend them for all your real estate transactions.

Carmen Paterniti, President

D&S Automotive, M.C. Mobility Systems, Inc.

I have worked with Emerald Glen both professionally as a Realtor and as a buyer/seller for the past 12 years. Karen and the staff have always gone above and beyond with their service, integrity, and professionalism. Every one of my clients who have used their services was very pleased with them. I highly recommend Emerald Glen Title for all your title and escrow service needs.

Helena (Leni) Dragar, Realtor

Platinum Real Estate

I have used Emerald Glen Title for over a decade and have found them to be professional, service-oriented and a notch far above the rest. From their staff to management and ownership, I cannot express enough how great of a company they are. I highly recommend them for anyone with real estate needs.

Khash Saghafi, Mortgage Banker

Liberty Home Mortgage Corporation

Working with Emerald Glen Title is the epitome of working with a family business. We are always just one phone call away from Kathy and Karen, a huge benefit that is hard to find anywhere else. When selling a home, title is one of those things that you want to happen silently, in the background with no bumps in the road. But when there is a challenge on a deal, Emerald Glen is always ready and willing to charge in like the cavalry and save the day. Even on evenings and weekends, we get great service here. We couldn’t ask for more.

Mike Ferrante, Realtor

Century 21 Homestar –21 Mike Team

When working with buyers and sellers in today’s marketplace, real estate agents want the best service for their clients and the customers involved in the transaction – Good communication, responsive, trustworthy and thorough processes are all things that I look for in a title company. Emerald Glen and their team of professionals have all of those and then some! I have been a loyal customer of Emerald Glen’s since they first opened their doors and they continue to grow and maintain the highest level of professionalism today.
