While real estate transactions in southern New Jersey do not require the presence of a lawyer, savvy Realtors and clients know that a knowledgeable attorney can have a tremendous impact on the final outcome. One area of focus is residential real estate law, whereby Michael J. Stein offers his services to sellers and buyers, working alongside sales associates or with individuals who are selling by-owner (FSBO). He is well-versed in a variety of transactions, and works with investors as well as those acquiring or selling their primary residences. He also reviews finance packages to ensure that his clients’ best interests are being served.
After earning a B.A. from Hofstra University, Michael went on to attend Thomas M. Cooley Law School. He ventured into solo practice early in his career, centering his practice around real estate transactions and divorce proceedings.
Michael’s practice has grown steadily through repeat and referral business, and he reflects on the value of service he offers. “I work many hours for my clients, and am with them from the time the initial contract is signed through the closing,” he states. Accessibility and communication are key elements of service in his industry, and he avails himself to his clients and their Realtors throughout the transaction.
Serving as a trusted advocate means presenting a service that is both knowledgeable and comfortable for his clients. To stay abreast of real estate trends, Michael turns to print publications for the latest news and changes. His attitude is unpretentious, and his ability to put clients at ease has earned their respect and appreciation. Nowhere is this more evident than at the closing table; in fact, Michael’s demeanor and professionalism have earned business from individuals on the other side of the transaction, who were impressed by the care he offered to his clients.
Colleagues have stated that Michael has a wonderful attitude and is extremely knowledgeable. One attorney has stated that she would “highly recommend Michael for any real estate transaction.”
Michael offers a versatile appointment calendar and is able to accommodate clients’ busy schedules with weekend and evening meetings. Contact the law office of Michael J. Stein, Attorney at Law, to arrange your initial consultation about buying or selling a home in the Mount Holly, New Jersey, area or throughout South Jersey.
