I have worked with Karl Schmitz over a period of years on a number of larger transactions, including a complex closing out of the United States, and a number of hospitality properties as well. I have found him to be extremely competent and always able to determine a way to satisfactorily deal with the unexpected issues that always arise in these transactions.
Karl has represented me and my companies in numerous transactions over the years, including sales & leasing contract negotiations, drafting membership and operating agreements, and providing title insurance. Karl is extremely accessible for information/advice and he makes his clients his #1 priority. At times he has conducted contract negotiations on my behalf while he was on vacation. I have worked with Karl for many years and I look forward to working with him for many more.
Karl entered this transaction representing the seller and fulfilling the title/closing transaction. I was the realtor/broker and represented both the seller and the buyer. All of us assumed at the execution of the contract, that this would be a straight forward, smooth sailing transaction. After 2 1/2 months of very challenging negotiations with different parties including HOA boards and their attorneys, two different mortgage companies representing the buyer, a very recent bankruptcy by the seller in a different state, the transaction closed. Throughout the negotiations, Karl was calm, proposed clarity in providing options, thought "outside the box" to obtain action, kept lines of communication open and responded to all. After working with Karl on this transaction, I look forward when I can again work with him and would not hesitate in referring him to others. He is professional and very knowledgeable.
