John was our attorney for the sale of our home. He guided us through the process and answered all of our questions. His expertise and recommendations made the entire transaction smooth and stress free. We are very grateful to John and his associates for their guidance.

An Attorney That fights for you!
John was recommended to to us by our realtor and we couldn't be more grateful. We were 1st time home buyers entering the biggest investment of our life. John made it so much easier to navigate with quick responses to all our questions and concerns. He was not dismissive of us but we felt represented us in the best possible way. He tried his best to keep on target and when others were lacking he was not afraid to step up and ask on our behalf what the problem was. Having his team of great people helped us get our home just in time for Christmas. He works hard each time he had to write up our contract in our case 3xs but never faltered...he fought hard for us up until the end and we will forever be grateful! I highly recommend him and his team.

Bought property using John
My wife and I were buying our first home and were unsure about pretty much everything in the process. Our real estate agent recommended John to us and I couldn’t have been happier with him and his team. He exemplified the highest levels of professionalism and attentiveness to all my needs and questions, all while remaining personal and responsive. I really couldn’t recommend John and his teams service more. If I have any future purchases, he will be the first person I use, no questions asked.

100% HIGHLY Recommend
This is our second time using John in a real estate transaction in Bloomfield, NJ. John was truly a pleasure a work with and went above and beyond for us. He was very responsive and detail oriented. John did a fantastic job in walking us through the answers to any questions we had throughout the process as well as getting us in touch with an excellent contractor to do last minute work prior to closing. I would highly recommend John to anyone who is buying and/or selling in the Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield area!

Excellent Service Provided
John was recommended to my wife and I through our real-estate agent seeing we did not have an attorney of our own. I could not be more pleased with his services although the sale of our home proved to have some challenges provided by the buyer's attorney, John provided my wife and I the confidence to get through them all and acted in a manner that exhibited true professionalism and courtesy.

Responsive and competent!
Working with John Lubenesky and his office was a great experience from start to finish. He helped when I purchased my first home and also when I eventually sold it. Both times he was courteous, knowledgeable, and fast. I highly recommend him for your real estate needs.

Great work John!
John made sure the purchase of my new condo at Hoboken was smooth and easy. He was approachable, friendly, and quick to respond, so I always felt comfortable asking him questions during my first property purchase. His office made clear to me the required deadlines, and he coordinated the closing meeting well at a convenient location. I'd hire him again...thank you John!

Home Buyers In Montclair
John helped my wife and I through the stressful process of buying a home in Montclair during COVID. With seemingly everyone looking to purchase a home in the area these days, timing was incredibly tight and deadlines were required on short notice. Through it all, John took the time to explain the entire process to us as well as the implications of the various decisions that we needed to quickly make. He was always fast to respond and follow up when needed. When we had an issue come up during the inspection that needed to be addressed, John wrote an amazingly comprehensive and convincing letter that helped us get it taken care of. Aside from being incredibly knowledgeable, he’s an all-around great guy who was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend John and would definitely work with him again in the future.

Thanks for your excellent work
John Lubenesky I used him twice and I have no regrets. Over a year ago I purchased a condo in New Jersey And from the very start through the very end on closing day he was excellent. He had great correspondence with the seller, and myself in settling our differences and Getting things resolved with great efficiency And patience. During Covid 19 I purchased a two family house in New Jersey And again I have no regrets He has performed his job with excellency and patience He leaves no stone unturned. His staff, excellent to work with Always returned phone calls And correspondence I would recommend mr. John Lubenesky He does work with great confidence for the benefit of his client. Thank you John

First time home buyer Gillette, NJ
John is an amazing lawyer:). This was my first time purchasing a house with a quick closing turnaround aaannnnddd with some major hard stops and issues with the seller’s attorney. John was calm, cool and collected throughout the whole process, however, pushed appropriately when there were issues on the seller’s side. He had my back and best interests throughout the entire process and put up with my frantic/crazy/nervous messages back and forth!!! He’s the best, I got very luck with him and he’ll be my go-to in the future:)

Enjoyed working with John on the Buy and Sell - Montclair
We worked with John on both buying our new home and selling our old home after we moved. He and his team were fantastic on both transactions. We closed both transactions post-COVID. John was extremely knowledgeable on the market, and with his experience and relationships he was able to steer us through some potentially sticky situations due to the pandemic. His team, especially Liz Shaw, was fantastic in ensuring the process ran smoothly with the counterparties (the seller of my new house, the buyer of my old house, the title companies, my mortgage provider, etc.). Would absolutely recommend John and his team.

Montclair review
During this fast-moving real estate period of high-demand from COVID-19 related NYC defections, we wanted to get "under contract" as soon as possible once we learned we were the highest bidder on a house. John wrote up a contract, went back and forth with me several times re: questions via email, and then had the contract out the next morning. We appreciated this. He also followed up diligently regarding a surveyor report that ended up showing that our property was slightly larger than we anticipated (a nice bonus). In the inspection and contrast negotiation periods, he advocated very well for us.

Great First Home Buying Experience
We had a great experience purchasing our first home with John as our attorney. His office was very patient in answering our constant questions, and he was an excellent resource in understanding what we could expect throughout the process as well as what was expected of us. John was responsive to our needs and helped to keep the process moving along with all members of both our team and our sellers teams.

Selling Your Home
John and his team are very professional and did an excellent job closing our house. John was reachable by phone and email and responded to questions quickly. I was particularly impressed during the difficult Covid-19 quarantine that they were able to close on the date originally planned. They exercise good judgment, great people skills and perseverance. I will use them again in the future.

Buying and Selling our home
We spent a couple of years in NJ on a company assignment. John and his team were a great help, both when buying our new home and then selling it when we left the country. Many thanks!
