Posted by a Real Estate client
I purchased a condo that seller did not disclose the unit is not in compliance with HOA architecture requirements. I ended up need to find an attorney to solve this issue with HOA and seller. It is a vey complex situation, and lots of lawyers I talked either has no HOA experience or do not think the damage is big enough for their time.
Before I met Michael, I had hired 2 attorneys for the same issue. The first attorney was not responsive, does not have adequate real-estate law experiences and knowledge, and always delays the process. The second attorney, I found her through a reputable law company, and with more than 20 years real estate experiences. She is a lot better than the first one, but still can’t resolve the issue between seller, HOA and myself.
After the 2 not so good attorneys, I was very frustrated until I met Michael. My friend recommended Michael to me, and he did help me to resolve the issue. Michael is very responsive, and he is super fast. He surprises me that he knows a lot more real estate laws by comparing him to others I used and talked. He always thinks about his clients, and he really pays attentions to details when he drafts the legal documents. I was amazed that he checks the building requirements that most lawyers could miss it before he puts the numbers on my agreements/legal documents. He has very high negations skills and always helps you to prepare the next step. By comparison, I think Michael is the attorney I have had. Not just my opinion, the HOA attorney also told me that I have an excellent attorney to represent me and put my interest on the top of his priority.
I think if I don’t have Michael to be my attorney, I will not be able to get the issue settled. You may be worry about he is so expensive, but he charges reasonable hourly rate with the highest quality. Why do I know? I hired other 2 attorneys before him, and they charged not less than Michael.
