I recently had the pleasure of working with Alison Gaskin on a real estate transaction, and wow, was I impressed! The level of professionalism and meticulous attention to detail displayed by Alison and her team far exceeded my expectations. They didn’t let a single thing fall through the cracks, ensuring a seamless process from start to finish. Alison has an uncanny ability to anticipate questions and address situations proactively. There were multiple times that she had the answers and solutions - before I even asked the question! She absolutely has deep understanding and mastery of real estate law. Her team is a well-oiled machine, with everyone coordinating flawlessly to ensure prompt responses to emails, texts, and phone calls. This kind of efficient communication is critical in the often time-sensitive realm of real estate, and Alison’s team excels at it. I’d recommend Alison in a heartbeat to all my clients. With her by your side, you’re not just getting a top-notch real estate attorney, but a team of rockstars who make the daunting legal journey feel like a walk in the park.

Andrew and the team made the Coop buying process a breeze for us. They all set the right expectations, over delivered, were diligent, thorough and were always ready to answer any questions or doubts. Even though i was quite familiar with the processes they made it a point to explain everything in detail and take you the closing table confidently. Highly recommended for all your Real Estate Transactions.
