Steven is an excellent real estate attorney. He is extremely engaged and knowledgeable. He knows every nuance of the transaction and explains everything thoroughly to his clients. He is always available for even the most trivial questions and willing to talk through any issues or concerns. He is also very thorough -- I have worked with him on multiple occasions and he is extremely precise -- nothing falls through the cracks. Finally, he is easy to work with and the realtors and other lawyers always get along with him and respect him, which eases the drama that often accompanies apartment sales. I would highly recommend working with Steven.
This lawyer started out great. Had everything ready. The end was a nightmare. This was a real estate deal. The buyer of my apartment seemed to think that after the closing I should replace the light fixtures. I had stayed in the apartment two extra days leaving a 10,000 deposit of escrow money in Ebert's account. Ebert actually defended the buyer instead of me who was his client. He began insulting me by e-mail on a daily basis. The buyer asked for 560.00 for new fixtures because she didn't want the original fixtures which were 45.00 each. It took me one month to obtainmy moneyInstead of sending a messenger as I asked, this lawyer made me walk 20 block s in a snow storm
Mr. Ebert is a phenomenal real estate attorney. My husband and I spent about a year working with Mr. Ebert on the purchase of our brownstone, which was complicated by an erratic seller who had hired an incompetent lazy attorney. Despite these difficulties, Mr. Ebert never failed to be there for us. He was instrumental in moving the transaction forward and always kept a close eye on our interests. The final contract was clearly negotiated in our favor, an advantage which ended up saving us tens of thousands of dollars as well as help smooth over a lot of closing details. Mr. Ebertâ€™s patience and expertise is invaluable. He is a rare find and we would strongly recommend using him if you are ever in need of an attorney.
I just sold my apartment in NYC which was no small feat. The building was under-occupied as well as a cond-op leasehold. Steven managed the closing process extremely well and served as power of attorney at the closing. What I was most impressed by was how thoroughly and succinctly he explained to me all of the key documentation as well as the process. The closing happened in a timely manner and went off without a hitch. I felt very comfortable working with Steven and would highly recommend him to anyone closing on an apartment in the city.
Had a great experience with Steven on a condo closing (buyer side).
Steven is extremely responsive, reliable and trustworthy.
Will definitely use him for future real estate transactions
Steven has handled multiple legal transactions with me now (one condo closing and one real estate related consultation). He continues to amaze me with his ability to pick up every detail, view problems from every angle, think outside the box and utilize his encyclopedic knowledge of NYC real estate law to handle any situation laid before him. He found easy and quick solutions to problems when other attorneys claimed that there was "nothing I could do." Steven is the person you want in your corner when you need legal assistance and is the only lawyer, in any capacity, that I've ever dealt with that I felt 110% confident that they are doing anything and everything possible to safeguard my best interest. I'm also amazed at how approachable and easy to reach he is. I can not recommend Steven highly enough.
Steven Ebert is an excellent attorney. I have used him twice in the past on a sale of an apartment and a purchase as well. Steve is very detail oriented and thorough. He takes the time necessary to explain things along the way and makes the process as easy as possible. I have recommended him to other as well and will continue to do so.
I have hired Steven twice for residential real estate transactions, once for the sale of an apartment and again for the purchase of my current apartment. As a lawyer myself, I was very impressed with Steven's attention to detail and responsiveness, and both of my transactions went smoothly. At the closing for my current apartment, my broker was so impressed with Steven that she has since recommended him to her other clients. I have also recommended Steven to my parents, who hired him for the sales of two apartments, and were quite pleased with his work. Given his knowledge of the field, honesty, excellent work, and fair prices, I can recommend him without hesitation. When I do purchase a house within the next few years, I will definitely hire Steven again.
Steven Ebert did an excellent job as my lawyer. I couldn't have been happier. He is very knowledgeable and explains everything very clearly. I felt very comfortable and at ease knowing he was helping me. I have recommended him to several people since and they have all been thrilled with him.
Steve is absolutely outstanding. I am a lawyer at a large corporate firm in New York and have hired Steve three times in connection with real estate transactions. The simple ones remained simple. He was reliable, honest, skilled and efficient. The complicated one was handled with incredible skill. He made pleasant what otherwise would have been a very unpleasant situaton, achieved a homerun result and did so with class. I would never use anyone else for a real estate transaction.
