Client Testimonials

“You are the best, muah! Omg you really are the greatest attorney ever...”

Sapna — UES Seller

“Thank you for your very competent services.”

Clyde — Condo purchaser

“Thank you again for everything. I never really believed you when you said way back in the day that things would work out, but they really did, things have fallen into place perfectly. I know that would not have been possible if it weren't for you. I really do appreciate all the hard work.”

Angie – Condo Seller

“Thanks for everything Greg and especially for being so efficient and on top of things.”

Mark — Co-op Purchaser UES

“I have dealt with a lot of sleaze in my time here in NYC, but you are truly a professional and a pleasure to work with.”

William — Seller of East 27th Street Co-op.

“I wish all closings were as smooth and easy as the Closing yesterday... It was my pleasure to meet you.”

John — title closer

“We wanted to thank you for your excellent service with the purchase of Ryan's condo. Ryan is very happy with his new role as home owner. You were able to keep it all moving — we appreciate all your hard work.”

Parents of Condo Purchaser

“Thanks again for all your help. I really appreciate you looking out for me.”

Brooklyn House Purchaser

“This afternoon's cancelled closing was extremely frustrating. At best, the seller and his lawyer's attempt to avoid paying Federal Withholding capital gains tax was rude and inconsiderate. At worst, it was deceptive if not downright dishonest. On the bright side, I'm glad we had Greg Maybaum representing us. Without his acumen and vigilance, we may have found ourselves liable for a lot of money.”

Robert — Condo Purchaser, avoiding potential Risk

“Again, thank you for all of your efforts and making the whole process run so smoothly. You came highly recommended & you did not disappoint.”

Lorraine — Condo Seller UWS

“Greg: Thank you for your help. We will recommend you to our friends and please do not hesitate to use us as a reference in the future. You took a lot of the stress out of a stressful situation.”

John & Danielle — Co-op Sellers

“Greg, I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous job you did. You always gave me the correct advice and protected my interests as if they were your own. I will recommend you to all my friends and family without the slightest hesitation. You are a true professional. Thanks again.”

Jeffrey M. — Co-op Purchaser

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work and 'quarter-backing' in making the deal happen on our apartment. Your efforts definitely amounted to a game-changing contribution. I sincerely doubt that the deal would have happened had we gone with any other attorney. Thank you specially too for perfectly orchestrating the closing itself, and going the extra mile.”

Thank you from John, a satisfied Co-op Purchaser

“It was great meeting you at the "Buying an Apt in Manhattan" Seminar yesterday. My husband and I are the young couple who sat at the end of the table and asked a bunch of questions...”

A follow up from one of my Seminars

“ were nice enough to speak with me, and the advice you gave me in that 45 minutes was more on target and astute than anything I had heard from my lawyer in the previous three months.”

A Buyer not too satisfied with his then present attorney.

“This note is way overdue… But I want to thank you for the very efficient and professional way you handle our entire transaction. From the initial contact through the closing you did an excellent job of educating us in the process, managing our expectations, moving the process along when it needed to be and being detailed enough so has not to let anything fall through the cracks.”

Stan — Co-op Purchaser

Elizabeth — first time home buyer

“Thanks again for your counsel. You were a pleasure to work with and a real help in keeping my priorities in order. And now we own an apartment!”

Brian — first time buyer referred by broker.

“From connecting me to my real estate broker to managing a seamless due diligence process, Greg was the best legal counsel I could have asked for. His honest feedback, quick turnaround and extensive knowledge are just a few of the many qualities a client will benefit from when working with him to ensure an easy closing. I'm grateful to have been referred to Greg as I ultimately wouldn't have found and closed the co-op that I did without him.”

Bobby, Co-op Purchaser who came to me fresh without a broker

“Thank you so much for taking care of everything. We know it's your job and yet we have a feeling that you really care.”

Koby — Condo Purchaser

“Greg, thank you for everything. Look forward to working with you again someday! You helped us navigate every step and fully explained the process so we always knew what to expect and felt comfortable. We have very high expectations regarding accessibility and responsiveness, and you not only met but exceeded our expectations in these areas as well.”

Jeff — UWS condo purchaser

“Dear Greg, Thank you very much for a job well done. Phil told us about your encounter yesterday at closing. We were lucky to have had you in our corner. Phil said you had everything under control and was grateful to be represented by such an experienced attorney.”
