I'm midway through my third real estate transaction with Steve and Diana and wholeheartedly recommend both of these talented professionals. I'm lucky to be represented by a team with a thorough knowledge of law and procedure. Every question and follow up question I've asked (hundreds) has been promptly and patiently answered, with attention to detail and a sense of humor. At closing, Steve took the time to explain each document and it's significance, sometimes re-explaining when necessary. When there was an unexpected fee Steve successfully argued that it wasn't our responsibility and was a real advocate. Between their vast knowledge of real estate transactions, dedication and advocacy to their clients and good spirits, it was a relief and a comfort to have Steve and Diana on my side. I wholeheartedly recommend hiring Steve Ebbin.

My wife and I have used Steve and his team for a number of years now. They are attentive, efficient, well priced, and extremely friendly. I referred my sister to them for the sale of her coop and she loved them, as well. We are currently redoing our wills with them. We will continue to use them for everything we can even though we've moved out of the City. They're that good!

A delayed posting, but this was my first apartment purchase, last year. Steve was super helpful showing me the ropes... super patient with me and answering my millions of questions I had about the process, as well as the contract, really taking the time to answer them so I could understand. He's funny and with his sense of humor, gave me the moral support and helped me get through the painful experience of getting to the closing day. Diana in his office was extremely nice and helpful as well. I can't wait to come back to Steve again, when I purchase my next home.

Steve was incredibly helpful and communicative throughout the sale/closing process. His office handled things beautifully and in a timely manner, and they negotiated well for me -- I only had to weigh in on one or two items, which was great since I was in the process of moving and consumed by other things. Overall they made a complicated process seamless, which I really appreciated.

Although you can't tell from the sparkling review that I gave Steve, I'm a very tough grader. If I had encountered even a single issue during my interactions, he would not be getting five stars from me.
I worked with Steve and his fantastic assistant Diana for two separate real estate transactions over the course of the last four years. I've never found the team to be less than excellent.
During my initial house purchase, it was clear that Steve knew exactly what was going on and he was patient enough to explain all the necessary parts to me very clearly. It was also clear that he was known, liked, and respected by everyone in the room, which also seems really important.
During my most recent house sale, the entire transaction was carried out with a minimum of fuss. I was kept updated every step of the way, despite being unable to be physically present for most of the proceedings. Everything was concluded right on schedule.
I don't have a lot of experience working with lawyers, but I've been told by friends that I am extremely lucky to not have a single complaint. If I encounter a legal issue in NYC again, Steve and Diana will be the first team that I contact.

We needed some serious hand holding for our first home purchase. We got all of that and more. Attentive, caring, and knowledgable!

I was trying to execute the sale and purchase of two different Co-ops and needed a lawyer in a pinch and I was put into contact with Steve Ebbin and his assistant, Diana. They were fantastic at getting the documents I needed in order, always kept me informed and always answered any questions I had, both by email and by phone. Steve Ebbin was great doing back to back closing for me and my move from one place to another went off without a hitch.

I hired steve as a lawyer for purchasing an apartment. In my case, there were an extra amount of details to go over and he and diana were able to navigate everything smoothly. particularly diana was always available to explain what was happening and where we were in the process. in addition to being clear and concise, she was fun to talk to, which in dealing with stressful stuff like nyc real estate is a real plus, since half the battle is your state of mind.
I would recommend them.

I was referred to Mr. Ebbin's office by a piranha of a lawyer in Westchester who had been highly recommended to me. He said that given my property was in Brooklyn, he recommended that I work with Mr. Ebbin, of whom he thought highly.
Mr. Ebbin and his staff (I spoke most frequently with Diana) were responsive, knowledgeable and friendly. It turned out that our closing required a very capable team, as we ran into one hurdle after another. They not only handled the legal work, but they advised us on a host of other issues, so that we always knew our options.
We were buying directly from owners, who were quite difficult and who tried to back out of the deal several times. Mr. Ebbin saw to it that that didn't happen. Additionally, the owners didn't really know what they were doing and as we didn't have a realtor to help, the law offices stepped in to explain dynamics to us (we were first time home buyers) and smooth out the process. They never complained about the extra work. They were always a joy to communicate with and when the going got rough, they stepped up their efforts.
After all the work that they had done, I braced myself for a giant legal bill. I was glad to see that it was fairly priced.
I feel very bless that I was able to work with them. I've always sought to work with capable people, and everyone I interacted with in that office was just that. I guess Mr. Ebbins feels the same way, because in addition to his considerable ability, the people under him are great.

Mr. Ebbin's office kept us informed during the entire process. They were very responsive and cleared any questions or concerns we had as clients and in negotiations.
