I specialize in residential and commercial real estate transactions and have done so for over the last twenty-five years.  I am available to represent you in the purchase and/or sale of your home or business property.  I charge both hourly rates and fixed fees.

 

I handle each transaction personally and completely. Even though I do the entire process, I charge what are currently considered discount fees.  Most other law firms that do transactional work today use paralegals and/or assistants to do the paperwork of your contract and closing, with little or no lawyer time on the file in order to save costs. 

 

My customary business hours are 9-6 pm M-F.  I will make myself availability under special circumstances to meet my clients needs.

Made my complicated co-op sale survivable!
I hired Bari to be my attorney for the sale of my Yonkers co-operative apartment. The sale dragged out over months as one thing after another went wrong. Bari was patient, available, good humored and competent throughout the process. Without her support I would have been lost. I would recommend her highly!!

Thorough professional
We closed on a property that took more than 2 years to do so. Bari was always reachable, understanding and accommodating the whole time. I’d recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

Excellent attorney and highly competent!
Thank God for Bari! We became involved in what became a last minute closing concerning my property and Bari kept all the parties focused and organized; making sure all the paperwork from the other parties was completed and finalized. It was amazing, watching her make notes as to what documents we needed and then ensuring we received them to close out the transaction. I would recommend her to anyone needing an excellent attorney.

Excellent lawyer that would go above and beyond for you.
Bari is the best lawyer ive been work with. She represented me to purchase my 1st coop. 1st of all her description on her page is absolutely rite. She care about each person case and give a personal touch to it. She is very, i meant very very responsive to emails, texts, calls. She is knowledgeable, and a great advisor. Im a clueless first time home buyer that need guidance, she is very patient and gave me not an advise but the solution. Which not much lawyer willing todo that because they dont want to be hold accountable. It made me very sure and confidence with her decisions. On closing day she review every single paper and tell me what it is in a simple way before i sign it. She took her time. I really appreciate her. With her i felt like she always got my back and always make decision based on what best for me. Thank you very much Bari. Me and my husband are very happy with our new purchase. I definitely recomended her to everyone need a real estate agent.

Highly Recommend
I consulted with Ms. Schulman on behalf of my parents who were confronted with an unresolved issue regarding the sale of their house handled by their previous attorney. As consulting their previous attorney was not an option, I contacted Ms. Schulman based on her excellent reviews on Avvo. Ms. Schulman thoroughly investigated key points and thoughtfully guided us through a stressful situation. We especially appreciated the fact that she handled all aspects of the case personally from start to finish. We highly recommend her and will seek her services again in the future if needed.

Great Experience!!!
It was a great experience with Bari! Bari was not only attentive to the documents and process required from the buyer's perspective (mine), but also was on top of the seller, coop, and the bank. I would've been lost without Bari's patient and knowledgeable guidance. I recommend Bari to anyone who's looking for a smart, competent, timely, and kind attorney!

Excellent Experience
I worked with Bari during the home buying process and my experience was excellent. As a first time buyer I had a lot of questions and concerns, but I'm glad now that she was always available to clarify my doubts and make the experience very smooth. Throughout the process she makes sure she keeps you up to date. I would definitely recommend her with my eyes closed to my friends and family. Thank you.

Very Highly Recommend Bari
Bari handled the closing on our house this spring. We found her to be highly responsive at all times, even surprising us with quick responses to our emails on weekends and evenings. She also communicated with third parties as needed to save us stress and expedite our closing in order to maintain our mortgage agreement parameters. She was knowledgeable, dependable, and highly competent, yet not condescending or dismissive in any way. This was by far our best experience in dealing with an attorney for any purpose and we are currently using her to write our lease agreement.

I would recommend Bari to my family and friends
I am a first time home buyer and like every first time home buyers did extensive research in trying to find the right attorney for me. I am more than happy that I chose Bari to represent me. Not only is she knowledgeable and up to date with current laws, contracts and the closing process but she truly did represent me as a buyer. She answered all of my questions from the start to the close either via email or phone. Bari answering my questions is not surprising what is surprising is when she would answer them. I would either call or email her on the weekends or after work hours with questions or concerns, expecting an answer the next day or on the following Monday but she would either answer immediately or reply back within a reasonable time. Buying a house is a very stressful experience and not being able to get an answer from your attorney or leaving messages at the office with the secretary or paralegal and waiting for an answer can add to that stress. Bari does not have a secretary or any paralegals working for her and even though she does have multiple clients, I truly felt she was my personal lawyer. I highly recommend her to anyone, she did a fantastic job and I was able to close on my house on May 22.

Attorney for our Westchester Home Sale
We hired Bari for the sale of our Westchester home based on her excellent online reviews. We truly feel that Bari is a dedicated and experienced professional, who helped us to navigate the sale of our home. Home sales are always stressful, and Bari was always available to help with any questions or concerns. She is very knowledgeable, and extremely capable in her profession. She made the process much easier for us, and we are very appreciative of all the time and effort she spent with our home journey. We have also hired her again for the purchase of our new home. We would absolutely given her the highest of recommendation for anyone seeking to buy or sell a home.

Another great experience
I have used Bari for the third time to buy or sell a home in Westchester County NY, and I continue going back to her due to her outstanding service.

Bari J. Schulman, Esq.
We closed in October of 2017, I've been to 4 closings on residential property in my lifetime. Working on this last one was the easiest with Bari, she is professional, really knows the law and was a pleasure to work with.

Great Service!
We hired Bari for the purchase of our first home. Bari was extremely responsive. She was always available to answer any questions that we had. She even helped speed up our mortgage process, which was becoming quite stressful, to say the least. In the end, we closed on time and everything went smoothly. Bari's fee was also very reasonable, which was great, considering all the expenses associated with purchasing a home!

Great experience working with Bari - Highly recommend!
We recently worked with Bari on our home purchase in Westchester and we could not be more pleased with our experience. Bari is extremely responsive and willing to spend the time to explain everything to us on many occasions. Her fee was very reasonable. We would highly recommend Bari to anyone buying or selling a home!

Great Experience
We hired Bari for the purchase of our first home. After talking to a few lawyers and getting a few recommendations we decided to go with Bari as she seemed the most straight forward and easy to work with. She was always available by emails and always replied promptly. Her fee is very reasonable and she did not surprise us with any extra charges. We will be happy to use Bari again!

Attentive, Responsive and Knowledgeable
Working with Bari on our first home purchase was a pleasure. Throughout the entire process, we were easily able to contact her by both email and phone, and she was extremely responsive to our myriad questions at all hours (Sorry, Bari). She was careful in reviewing all of our documents and helped us to get what we wanted. As a result, our closing lasted only about an hour and we are now happy homeowners! I highly recommend utilizing her services!
