We were trying to sell our house Buy Owner. We had been through 3 different contracts when we decided we would obtain a lawyer to help us with the sale of our home. We have always sought out referrals from friends, co-workers, and Angies list when needing help. Since no one we knew had any suggestions we Googled a Real Estate Attorney in Coral Springs. Several names were generated and referred to an Avvo rating. Andrew Garofalo's rating was high and we called him. He was not available but called us back in a short time. We liked the introductory phone call and decided to choose him to help us in our process. We are so happy that we did!
Andrew helped us every step of the way! This was the first house we ever sold and knew only what we read on the internet. He was professional from the beginning. He instructed and suggested what we needed to do . He was quick to begin with the necessary documents and remained knowledgeable, efficient and precise with all the forms to the close. He kept us fully apprised of all correspondence that he sent out, on our behalf, and all correspondence that he received. He promptly responded to emails and the numerous questions that we had. He intervened on our behalf so we did not have to deal with the buyer, the buyers realtor and title company....which was great! He was efficient, knowledgeable, and meticulous with all the documents to the very end. In meeting with him personally, for the closing, he was pleasant, polite and courteous. It was such a HUGE relief to have him intervening on our behalf. He helped us tremendously! We are very grateful to him and feel very blessed to have been led to him. We would recommend him to ANYONE and EVERYONE!

Andrew is very Knowledgeable and Professional and will always take time to explain if and when it is needed. He will of course give you all the Legal reasons but when asked give his educated opinion as well. Andrew was also very "Reachable". If he was not immediatley available he would call back quickly.
From dealing with Attorneys previously, I found Andrews fees to be fair. I have delt with lawyers who (Very obviously) just wanted to strech out my time and bill more hours and consequently MORE Money.
Andrew is clearly not that way. He seems to actually care about you and truly wants the best outcome for you.
I have found him to be Smart, Honest and actually a Good Guy. I Trust his advice.
Andrew helped me with a Forclosure and Bank Re-financing. He negotiated dates and mortgage issues with Bank of America in less than a month. I had previously TRIED to work with B of A for about 2 years with NO help from them at all. (Just Headaches.)
I would absolutey (and already have) refer Andrew to my friends and Family.
