My experience with Richard was a pleasant experience as I was a first time homebuyer and was not informed on the ins and outs of the closing cost. But Richard took his time to explain to me what my cost to close were going to be and walked me through it thoroughly. My closing was delayed a little bit but we finally closed and I have no BUYER'S REMORSE...I would highly recommend Richard DeVita...
Richard has been our lawyer in buying our very first condo in Jersey City. Being from India, I was very scared to buy a property internationally and was not aware of the legal formalities involved. He guided me through each and every step of the process, worked remotely during his vacation. He also saved us money by negotiating hard with the seller attorney. He helped us close at time and location that is amicable to us and I have to say that was a blessing. He has such command over the real estate law that even the seller attorney agreed to some of the clauses mentioned by Richard in the contract when the seller was trying to change the closing date. He helped us draft emails to the Bank when they were delaying the closing date due to compliance issues and helped me get my loan processed during the final closing phase. I will commision Richard for any legal issue that may occur in the future given my super nice experience. He is very nice, knowledgeable and gets the job done for the benefit of the client.
My wife and I just purchased our first house in Bayonne, NJ. My offer was approved 6 months before we actually closed as it was a "short sale". In that time period, Rich found, negotiated and explained 6 (SIX) outstanding liens that were on the house that we were unaware of. He was able to keep us at our offer price and walked us through the entire process without being aggravated by our many questions. I recommend that he be the attorney you use above all else. He made us feel comfortable, safe and got the job done perfectly. Thanks Rich!
I was selling a condo in Hoboken after relocating to Texas 11 months earlier. Richard made the process simple and uncomplicated. He knew I could not come back to NJ for the closing and handled all the paperwork with a power of attorney and saved me a lot of time and expense. He kept me informed and was very responsive 7 days/week (even during his vacation).
The ultimate compliment is that I would certainly use Richard again. Well done.
I have had the opportunity to have Richard represent my family's interests on many occasions over the years. Richards representation is always extremely through.
Every real estate transaction, has had Richard correcting the lending organizations errors, pushing the lender to meet its committed closing dates.
Richard is committed to his clients always meeting targeted completion dates & time lines. I could not be happier with Richard protecting my family.
Rich Devita is a wonderful attorney. He successfully won a large settlement for me and my family. He is very knowledgeable and caring.He made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him. He worked tirelessly for 18 months on my case. He was always available by phone, email or text day or night.
Richard represented us for the sale of our condo and the purchase of a new home. He worked with us on a very tight time frame where time was of the essence and the entire transaction was virtually seamless.
When things got a little crazy with our deal he was reassuring, gave expert advice and took care of everything, keeping us informed every step of the way.
I would highly recommend Rich to anyone needing a Real Estate Attorney.
Unfortunately, I was forced to short sale my home Richard Devita made a very unpleasant and upsetting experience pleasant. He was very compassionate and through. He is very knowledgeable about the law and the proper procedures. He was able to get an approval from the bank very quickly. He made the closing process seamless. As a result of this very positive experience he is now the only attorney my family I will use.
Mr. DeVita is knwoledgeable, informative to his client, on top of all issues related to subject case (subject property if Real Estate case), prompt corespondance to questions and issues, present and study case well that gives confidance to his client; and timely.
I have and will continue to recommend Richard to friends and relatives.
Richard is a true professional dragging me through everything from Short Sales to 2 family homes. He is clear and to the point and wastes no time......
He is a true value to you or your organization. Work with the cheap nickel and dime guys or work with Rich and know that things get done and done right.......
