As the broker manager here at Weichert Realtors, Jersey City Exchange Place we use Mike Schonberger a lot. He is very responsive to the needs of our clients, keeping them informed, and protecting their rights. Having an attorney who does a lot of real estate is extremely important in keeping a transaction together. If you are looking for a good attorney we highly recommend him.
We have used his services on two occasions. Mr. Schonberger handled the sale of our residence in Lawrenceville a few years ago. He also assisted us in the purchase of investment property in Pennington which successfully closed in late December of 2013. At all times, in both instances, we have found Mr. Schonberger to be very responsive to our numerous questions and concerns. This was particularly evident during the most recent transaction in which the Seller of the property was, at times, very difficult with which to work. Mr. Schonberger is a very experienced attorney and, in many instances, was able to anticipate and react to issues before they became problematic and interfere with the transaction's timetable. Most importantly, we were always confident in knowing that protecting our interests was Mr. Schonberger's primary concern.
Mr. Schonberger was referred to me for a home closing in NJ. It was a FSBO and I did not use a Realtor, so there was additional legwork that went in to being certain all issues were addressed. I felt very comfortable with the review process and Mr. Schonberger's knowledge of real estate issues. He "ran the show" at the closing and was thorough, yet expeditious.
We hired Michael to buy our condo, he was recommended by a good friend of mine.
Our deal was not the easiest one, my fiancee and I were not married yet and she was still living abroad.
Michael handled everything with utmost regard to our concerns and financial well-being.
His short, efficient, to-the-point attitude suited us perfectly.
I will definitely hire him again.
I was a CLIENT of Michael Schonberger's last year when I consulted him about how to handle my house after my husband died.
I signed an agreement for him to provide services if I needed them and I gave him a $1000 deposit.
After 8 months I never received an email from him. Just one phone call. Never received a statement or a recapitulation of services. No services had been rendered and I did not think I was going to have a problem with the house. So I emailed Michael Schonberger and asked for my deposit back.
He refused and said that my deposit had been used towards services rendered. I asked what services and also asked why I had never received a statement.
The agreement I signed did not have an expiration date for the deposit nor did it state anywhere that the deposit was non-refundable. But he still refused to give me my money back.
