I just wanted to profusely thank Steve Fink for helping my client through a very sticky real estate situation!!! He is amazing & I highly recommend him :)
Last week, I had a seller deny an inspector access to his property, which caused my buyer to be late on her closing. The seller threatened to cancel the escrow and keep the buyer's deposit, while he knew the reason we could not close was because the inspector was not allowed back in.
I called CAR legal, and was beyond disappointed when they told me there was nothing that could be done past day 17 to force a seller allow additional inspections, even if they were follow up. Seriously??? Nothing??!! In desperation I went to Steve because I knew this was not fair, he has dealt with thousands of contracts, and he would have an angle. Within hours, Steve had a letter beautifully written and emailed to the stubborn seller. The next day the seller let the inspector in (it was over an FHA loan requirement for smoke detectors in every bedroom of all things!) and the buyer was able to get her loan funded.
I gave her the keys today, and this is all thanks to Steve's knowledge and quick action to help a deserving person in need. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!

I posted a question on Avvo "Ask a Lawyer" page. He responded right away. I sent him a follow up question email, and he gave me helpful responses/answers. The situation is such that I could not pursue the course necessary, but I was grateful for his sincere responses and help.
