Absolutely Wonderful Real Estate Services!
I was introduced to Anna-Maria by a friend who had recently purchased a home and could not have been happier! Buying a home for the first time was very stressful and having someone that knows what they're doing help you through the process was incredibly valuable. Will absolutely use her services for any future needs, and will recommend her to anyone I know looking to purchase a home.

Reliable, professional, thorough - and a great bargian to boot
Anna Marie handled a very long, very difficult, and very stressful real estate closing for my home in Holmdel. This was a large transaction with a very long closing period and several contingencies. Needless to say, it turned out to be a very, very frustrating experience for us. However, Anna Marie was rock solid, dealt with all the drama and issues without batting an eye, handled some fire breathing angry folks deftly, and moved purposely and carefully through the entire process. She was a steady hand in this long and difficult process. She went far beyond the call of duty, and beyond what I her fees, in my opinion.

The process
Anna-Maria Pittella was a rock of support through a very difficult time in my life and her fine council helped me get passed the process and come out the other side as best I could . I think if I would have went to litigation things would have been much more contentious and difficult so I'm very happy I chose Anna-Maria to represent my interests !

Competent, experienced, and supportive
My husband and I worked with Anna-Maria Pittella for both selling/buying of our old/new home where both transactions were full of many challenges. Anna Maria was very knowledgeable and always responded quickly and provided guidance. Even when the situation became complicated, she got us through the entire process with patience, ease and a positive outcome. We also worked with Anna-Maria to update our wills and sell a timeshare. She is highly professional yet creates a comfortable environment to 'get the job done'.

An Honest, Qualified Lawyer in NJ. Go Figure!!
I was referred to Ms. Pittella by my real estate agent for a closing,l in December 2015, on my Red Bank property while I was in FL. I trusted my agent and Ms. Pittella never gave me a reason to regret my decision. We have never met, and yet I totally depended on her to protect my interests, which she did as they were her own. I trust her judgement completely and really appreciate all of the "extras" she did for a remote client. I recently approached Ms.Pittella on another legal matter, and after that consultation I have decided on another approach. I have Ms Pittella on my very short list (2} of attorneys that I trust and will return to for any additional legal work. She is a quality person and an exceptionally qualified attorney.

Anna-Maria helped me with my Will and Power of Attorney. She is very knowledgeable and gave me sound advice. This is the 3rd time I've hired her with legal matters. If I ever need legal advice or representation again I would not hesitate to hire her again
