Attorney Karl Liwo handled two separate real estate issues for us, both with excellent satisfactory results. The first was the dissolution of a tenant issue, dissolving a long term rental lease; the other, the selling of a FSBO home where we were the inexperierienced sellers. In both cases Karl proved to be a considerable asset to the negotiations as well as the overall process. From start to finish he was available, always courteous, unhurried and explicit in his communications. Karl educated us not only as to our rights, but also our obligations and further safeguarded us against future potential pitfalls. In instances where multiple options were available, Karl was able to walk us through each scenario outlining the pros and cons of each choice. We found him to have a wide understanding of his industry that blended well with his considerable understanding of simple human nature. His balanced approach diffused tensions and his ability to quickly dissect and discuss each moving piece of our process assuaged many of our concerns and enabled us to react with confidence.
In addition to enabling us to successfully and professionally execute the sale of our home, we found Attorney Liwo (Karl) to be extremely approachable and available. Many if not most of our transactions occured on the weekend and during non-business hours and Karl was consistently proactive in responding to off hour communications. We were able to meet every deadline and respond to every request in a unexpectedly timely manner.
Finally, we appreciate that during each communication Attorney Liwo kept the tone professional, succint and positive. Real estate transactions can be personal - at times emotional, contentious, complicated and stressful. Karl deftly navigated any emotion brought to the table, always simply moving the conversation and process forward with the best possible results.
Attorney Liwo had the difficult task of representing both my former husband and myself in a very difficult home sale. Our real estate transaction turned out to be quite complicated. Attorney Liwo, unexpectedly found himself dealing with two failed offers to purchase and a messy tenant situation. Throughout this process, Karl's thoughtful, calm and professional demeanor prevailed. His years of experience were evident in every unexpected turn that our situation took, and I felt every step of the way that we were in expert hands. I will not hesitate to retain Karl when it comes time to sell my current home. He is, indeed, a real gem!
