RUSSELL JACOBS IS THE REAL ESTATE AND CONDO ASSOCIATION ATTORNEY IN SOUTH FLORIDA!!!
Whether you are BUYING OR SELLING REAL ESTATE of any kind, or you need a CONDO ASSOCIATION ATTORNEY, or you need an EXPERT to testify to the most complicated real estate issues, you HAVE to hire this attorney!
My law firm hired him as an expert to testify to a complicated real estate transaction, and because of his excellent, easily understood testimony and his professional demeanor with the judge, my client was able to recoup hundreds of thousands of dollars that her ex-husband had tried to steal from her in a complicated real estate transaction.
In addition, my condo association hired him as their counsel and he has done an OUTSTANDING JOB of addressing and resolving our myriad problems quickly and professionally. He is a great people person, as well, and easily and professionally handles even the most difficult owners at our condo board meetings in a way that has them smiling by the end of the meeting.
He has a unique approach to representing condo associations in that he offers a flat fee for unlimited work --- and he means it! We really put him (and his excellent staff) through their paces the first year we hired him, and he exceeded our expectations in every way.
His experience and depth of knowledge is only exceeded by his exceptional people skills. His easygoing demeanor mixes very well with what is an obvious love for real estate, and his passion and dedication comes through in everything he does.
RUSSELL is often called upon to teach Florida real estate law to other attorneys and paralegals. He is highly respected by his peers, very much appreciated by his clients, and really goes the extra mile to make sure that everything he handles is successful and done correctly the first time. TITLE COMPANIES DO NOT go the extra mile to point out potential problems to the buyers and sellers in a real estate transaction --- but Russell does! And not only can he spot the problem, but he can fix it.
DO NOT BUY OR SELL REAL ESTATE IN FLORIDA WITHOUT HIRING RUSSELL JACOBS!
