My husband and I just completed the home buying process and could not be happier with the partnership we had with John Crane. His professional, knowledgeable, and gregarious demeanor put our anxiety to rest about the daunting process of buying a home. John answered our countless questions and explained each step of the process, breaking it down to easily understand. He was always there anytime we called or emailed and communication was seamless. We could not recommend John Crane more! Thanks John!

I recently purchased a home in Staten Island and John Crane was a tremendous asset! I found him through Avvo and this was my first transaction with him. He definitely delivered on all of his promises and was very responsive to any questions throughout the entire process. I live in Florida and although I wasn't able to make it to the closing, John and his team were very accommodating and made sure everything went smoothly.
I have dealt with numerous attorneys and buyer's agents in the past, but John Crane was easily the best I've encountered. The level of professionalism and customer service he provides cannot be beat. I would definitely hire him again out for any NY real estate transaction.

I just finished a short sale with john as my lawyer. Look no more he is the best. Ihad three attorneys prior to john and they just did not get it or would not be knowledgable to go about doing a short sale. The amazing thing about this is that he was upto date with tax ramifictions and how to reach the proper person in the charge to get the job done. As you are aware shortsales are hard to get approved. A very few percentile does. Like I said befor look no further for a top attorney that never keeps you in the dark. Communicates with his client and always gets back to you if you want to reach him. Had I not had john as my attorney this shortsale would have never happened. He worked deligently for seventeen months on this case and never gave up. JoHN I thank you so much for giving Me my life back. I will be eternally gratefull to you

I was over 1,000,000 in debt on two homes and owed over 45,000 on my credit cards. I contacted John Crane and realized very soon that he really is different. John explained that because neither of my homes had equity, and because I was co-owner with another family member on each, that I would be able to keep both homes and still have all of my credit card debt wiped out.
I was a nervous wreck and John patiently met with me and spent over one hour learning about my specific situation and explaining the entire bankruptcy process and all of my options to me. Because I had never filed before and was very nervous, John actually met with me numerous times, carefully explained what documents were required, and personally prepared my bankruptcy petition with me. John always answered my telephone calls and when he didn’t, he always called me right back.
I know there are many other bankruptcy attorneys, but nobody would have cared about me the way John did. He personally reassured me as to what to expect at my meeting, and followed up with me to reduce my stress. I only wish I had called him earlier. I could have reduced months of stress and got my fresh start on life much earlier!

What can I say but positively amazing? He sent the contracts out within 2 hours of my selecting him. I was in Asia and gave him Power of Attorney. I was kept informed. His office staff is also tremendous. Two days before the closing I received an email detailing the financial adjustments and clearly itemizing the expenses and profits I could expect. Within 24 hours of the closing, my account received a bank wire for the full amount and a few days later I received an international package with copies of all documents for my records in a binder. This wasn't just a legal service, this was customer service the way it should be. One of John's clients already called him the Bloomingdale's of Bankruptcy, but his customer service is honestly even better than that! A heart felt thanks and while John is not a discount lawyer, his service shows that sometimes you really do get what you pay for!

I read John's reviews and was shocked when I called his office and his assistant told me to hold on. Within a minute, John picked up the phone. I told him I was selling my coop and needed to do things quick because I would be leaving the country. With a bit of humor, he said "why does that worry you" and suggested closing by power of attorney.
When John sent me the contracts to sign, he also enclosed a power of attorney. It could not have been simpler. John and his staff handled everything from start to finish, and I received an email after the closing indicating that a wire had been sent to me in the Middle East for almost 2 Million Dollars.
Trustworthy, on top of things, and a pleasure to work with. I cannot describe how simple it is to work with John and his staff.
