We used Linda as our real estate agent recommended her. We were 1st time home buyers and our experience was enjoyable until we had to deal with Linda. Linda was so unprepared. She would blame others for her irresponsible behavior. She waited to the 2 days before closing date to get approval from the association. At which point she blamed them for not picking up the phone. We had decided on a closing date 3 weeks in advance and she didn't finish the paperwork until last minute. I was embarrassed to have hired her. I had to have excuses for her with my bank and everyone else. on top of that she is rude.

You have been very careful when you select an attorney to represent you in a real estate transaction. It is best not to select an attorney that is recommended by your real estate agent. Go and do your homework to find a completely independent attorney. I did not know much over 10 years and committed this blunder when I used Linda. She was close friends with my real estate agent and I do not feel that she was trustworthy to represent purely and solely my interests.

We have purchased two properties in last 12 years and used Linda for both. The first property purchase was a smooth transaction but we had some unexpected turns during the second purchase. With enormous legal knowledge that Linda possesses, she stood very strong against the other attorney and navigated us to the successful closing on time. She is straight to the point and most of my conversations with her were limited to Q&A type. She is not at all rude as mentioned by some other reviewer. Linda is very confident in her attorney role which shows up in talking to her. That could lead people to think that she is rude. I wish she could loosen up a little bit to make her clients feel more comfortable while talking to her. I do not hesitate to work with her again if I need to do another real estate transaction.

I have worked with many real estate attorneys and Linda did a great job on my last deal. She is bright, focused, a great communicator, and leaves no stones unturned. If you want a top attorney to work with, call Linda. Michael, Broker/Salesperson, Coldwell Banker

I was first time home buyer. I met Linda at a First time home-buyer workshop. She is strictly real estate, no criminal law, no other type of law, just Real Estate and that was important to me. Her communication is impeccable. Linda kept me informed at all times, she fought for me right before we were closing. She informed me that the water meter was missing, she made others pay for it, and not me. I will definitely use her when I sell my home. Or decide to refinance. Thank you Linda!

I would be very hesitant to use Linda Gotlib. Not only is she one of the rudest people I have ever encountered as she clearly hates her life, but she is not knowledgeable when it comes to real estate law. She is extremely arrogant and her arrogance makes you believe that she is correct no matter how much your instincts tell you otherwise. It just so happens that she was dead wrong on two major points in my closing and almost cost me the deal. And on top of it all, she had the audacity to insult me by commenting on how I wasn t buying the Taj Mahal. I understand that I can t afford much, but there is no reason to point that out in that manner. And I consider this MY Taj Mahal, who is she to tell me that it s not. Bottom line, there are MANY other attorneys out there far more qualified for the same price and unlike Linda, they know how to deal with people. She was not only surly to me, but she was abusive to the other attorney and even the title company. This woman does not deserve to be practicing law.

I strongly recommend Linda Gotlib. She has helped me with two home purchases (and subsequent refinancings) as well as one sale over the past four years. Her thorough nature and ability to answer all of my questions in a timely and efficient manner demonstrates her commitment to best serve her clients.

Linda's a straight forward attorney who represents her client 100%. During the time that I was her client, she was always accessible via phone or email. What I liked best about Linda was the fact that she always followed-up a conversation with a formal written document. This ensured that conversations between buyer/seller were always backed in writing. I strongly recommend Linda as a real estate attorney. She embraces technology and should you be at a distance from her location, she'll find ways to communicate to her client(s) electronically or mail.

I highly recommend Linda. She is very knowledgeable. She patiently walked me through the home closing process and answered all of my questions.
