I used Jean for my NYC condo closing. Her office was professional, courteous, and always responded to my inquiries in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to use her again, and wholly recommend her services to anyone requiring real estate services.

Jean and her team just represented me in a 2bdr midtown coop closing. I would highly recommend her. She was quick and diligent throughout the whole process. She took care of all the heavy lifting. For anyone not familiar with real estate law/process, she was able to explain all the technical jargon in layman terms. She also send me friendly reminders about upcoming deadlines and checked in frequently. My wife and I met her in person once in the beginning and again at closing. All other correspondence was done through phone/email. Very convenient for us.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Jean during my coop purchase process. Although I'm an attorney myself, the legal and technical intricacies of NYC real estate law were new to me - Jean, from the outset to finish, explained the entire process to me and meticulously went through each provision in each legal document put in front of me. Additionally, Jean was a great advocate and adeptly negotiated the purchase contract on my behalf. She would foresee and preempt issues before they came up during the negotiation process. Jean also coordinated with my mortgage lender and kept track of the many moving parts during the apartment process. Since I have a busy day job, I very much appreciated that Jean would send me status updates and reminders so the closing didn't fall behind schedule. And during closing, Jean walked me through all the documents that required my signature so I was aware of what each document meant. Most importantly, she was always pleasant and cheerful, which made this arduous process much more tolerable. I was so glad to be done with closing, but sad to end the working relationship with Jean! I have at least one friend who's looking to buy in NYC; needless to say, I will be recommending Jean to her without any hesitation or reservation.

Jean was great - very clear/articulate, flexible with payments (I didn't own a checkbook, so not only did she accept an online ACH transfer via chase quickpay, she helped me write a few necessary checks from her account throughout the process), and willing to walk me through the whole process.

I highly recommend Jean. She responds quickly and is very efficient. She answered every question and gave excellent advice. We were able to close on our apartment at lightening speed. It is not often that you work with someone as responsive and responsible as Jean. She made it easy and stress free.

Excellent experience working with Jean for our first condo purchase in NYC. She was efficient and thorough, available for our questions/concerns, and ever-prepared for the next step. She guided us through the language of our contracts, sure to close all loopholes to protect us from a potentially complicated closing. I attribute much of the closing's success to the above qualities she brings to the table. I will absolutely seek her services if needed in the future and confidently recommend her to others seeking real estate law services.

Jean was a godsend. She was recommended by a good friend, another real estate lawyer who moved out of state and could not represent us. My husband and I hired her to handle both the sale of our NY house and the purchase of a NJ house. She saw us through a year's worth of delays and headaches caused by very difficult buyers. Despite it all, Jean was the consummate professional and she never complained and was never pushy.
At various points, she presented the pros and cons of our legal options, and helped us calmly make the best choices under horrible circumstances. With poise and grace, she managed tense and challenging situations with another attorney to resolve matters in our favor. And when called for, she exercised legal pressure on our behalf but managed to never close the door on future negotiations. At our NY closing, she even received praise from the attorney and buyers for how smoothly she handled everything from the very beginning.
We HIGHLY recommend Jean. She is a clear communicator and is very thorough; she made sure that all agents and lawyers involved with our NY sale and NJ purchase were aware of key issues and delivered on their promises. She was always mindful of our expectations, constraints, and deadlines. We are VERY satisfied with her representation, and are so grateful she helped us close on both our houses.

Jean is a knowledgeable , resourceful professional who is very responsive to her clients.
She closed the real estate deal for us while we were overseas and could not be there for our closing.
She is very prompt and courteous and keeps you informed at all times.
We look forward to doing business with her again and would highly recommend her to our family and friends.

Jean is an extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and professional real estate lawyer in New York City. Jean worked with us on a condo purchase in lower Manhattan, and she was very helpful to us from sign to close. Along the way, she explained the details and implications of every nuance of every document or ancillary consideration we had to sign and/or otherwise review. I don't know how much time it took her to go through all of it, but she debriefed us over the course of an hour in an afternoon to get us up to speed with everything we needed to know.
In total, the whole process for us took just over a month, and actually turned out to be relatively simple and straightforward (which is not commonly heard in NYC given all the potential "pitfalls" in NYC real estate); we attribute a large part of this to Jean's guidance.
Beyond all this, she was eerily patient with us - as first-time homebuyers - through the entire experience. In addition to her "primary" responsibilities as our lawyer, she took the time to speak through all of our concerns/questions related to the purchase and offer perspective on what our options were for each of them.
Jean was always accessible and resourceful, never pushy, and always looked to take our best interests into consideration. Highly recommended, especially for fellow first-time homebuyers.

As a first-time home buyer, I had no clue what actually needed to happen going into the process - and that was fine because Jean knew everything and was able to quickly provide summaries/timelines/excellent advice on every aspect of the transaction. She was on top of all of the paperwork, all of the deadlines, every last detail. Incredibly professional, and was always reachable for any question a first-time home buyer would have. All of her explanations of process and documents were thorough. Would highly recommend and work with Jean again.
