About Irene

Learn Irene’s areas of practice.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT BUYING OR SELLING YOUR HOME IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST DECISIONS OF YOUR LIFE.

Irene Stein, Esq. strongly believes that a lawyer should limit their practice to specific areas of law. Mrs. Stein also believes that being a good attorney requires concentration in that field. As well as the ability to develop a comprehensive and working knowledge of all aspects of the said field, as opposed to having some basic understanding of everything, and a working knowledge of little to nothing.

Since the beginning of our practice in 2000, Irene and her staff have assisted thousands of homeowners in achieving their goals. Including home-ownership, refinancing a current home, representing banks, reviewing titles and lien searches.

In addition to an individual Attorney’s experience, she also believes that back office support must be well educated, experienced as such equipped in assisting the attorney in handling the transaction from point of Contract through Closing. In addition to her Real Estate Law practice, she frequently dedicates her time educating attorneys, real estate and mortgage professionals on issues that can arise within the Contract of Sale and Closing of Title.

We understand that buying, selling or refinancing your home can be one of the biggest financial decisions of your life and that it can be a very stressful process. We strive to make it a smooth process by taking the time to answer all of your questions and concerns. Our top priority is to be a strong advocate for YOU!

Closing on a condo
Irene is amazing. Straight to the point, sharp and extremely knowledgeable. I've used Irene's services to close on 3 deals and she's been always consistently great. Highly recommended.

Easy, no stress closing
I closed with Irene during the COVID quarantine. She was responsive and efficient. Everything went extremely well under very difficult circumstances. I'm so thankful to have found her. Her office staff was also amazing. I highly recommend!

Quick, efficient, professional
Irene was very quick, efficient and professional throughout my house purchasing process. She is very knowledgeable and knows what to expect. Steve is also an absolute professional and the office is always available to answer any questions (and the entire staff). Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful experience. Knowledgeable and responsive!
Irene and her staff were helpful and responsive to all our questions and concerns. It was our first time buying a home and she was with us every step of the way. When we found issues during the walk through, she negotiated on our behalf and was tough when needed. Overall, it was a pleasant experience!

First time buyer
I would like to thank Irene and her staff in handling my first time home buying experience with her law firm. Her and her staff were very polite and very professional. She even took the time to explain to me page by page about some documents I received from the seller, which by the way it was on her spare time to answer all of my concerns about those documents. She responded on every email and text that I had questions and concerns and I got answers. The closing went smoothly and on point with all of the documents that had to be signed. Irene made herself accessible and told me if I have any other closing related issues pertaining any documents to give her a call. Thank you once again on doing a great job. I would highly recommend Irene Stein and her firm.

EXCELLENT
We learned about The Stein Law firm through our agent and they were wonderful. Not only did they help us find the best mortgage rate but they were quick, efficient, and responsiveness in helping us close. Steve the office manager is funny, friendly, and knows how to run things. During our closing with Irene Stein she was prepared, professional, and everything was quick and smooth!. This is our second home and we did not use their law firm the first time ( we had a lot of issues) this time was a breeze and we were more than pleasantly surprised ! Looking forward to working with them in the future. Thank you all at The Stein Firm

Knowledgable and efficient RE attorney
The Stein Law Firm represented us in a purchase of a residential property. The negotiation and sale process had some unexpected complications, and the Stein team handled it professionally and expeditiously given lender-imposed time constraints. The Stein team worked closely with the mortgage lender to ensure that all legal requirements were satisfied and the loan was cleared in time for closing. Although we mostly communicated throughout the transaction with Irene’s team, who manage day-to-day operations, she was present at the closing. Irene was very organized and efficient that was in stark contrast to the seller’s side. She conducted herself in an utmost professional manner and clearly explained the final steps in the process. We enjoyed working with Irene and her team and would recommend her to other perspective clients.

Irene recently represented me and my husband in a real estate transaction and it was quickly evident through working with her that she is knowledgeable, experienced, and respectful. During the process Irene spent ample time with us to walk us through the process and ensure that we understood what was expected of us.I highly recommend Irene Stein and look forward to potentially working with her again in the future.

Professional and Thorough Legal Services
We were selling our co-op apartment and were referred to Irene and the Stein Law Firm from our broker. From the moment we connected with the Stein Law Firm, we were impressed with the professionalism, thoroughness and willingness of Irene to go above and beyond to ensure a smooth closing. We had numerous hurdles to get to closing, but Irene kept the process smooth. We thank her and her team for the services they provided, but more importantly we would not hesitate in working with her again, and would highly recommend her legal services.

Your thorough review of the contracts and documents unearthed crucial details that could have easily been overlooked. Your diligence ensured that all necessary adjustments were made, contributing to a smooth and trouble-free closing. Moreover, your accessibility and responsiveness were truly appreciated. I never felt like any question or concern was too trivial, and your timely responses provided reassurance during what can be a stressful period for homebuyers.

Your ability to advocate for my interests while maintaining a respectful and collaborative approach with all parties involved showcased your professionalism and legal acumen. In addition to your legal expertise, your friendly demeanor and approachable nature made the entire experience more enjoyable. Real estate transactions can be daunting, but your personable attitude created a positive and comfortable atmosphere, easing any concerns I may have had.
