Established on March 4, 2002, we have closed over $1,263,637,964.00 in business for our clients.
Residential transactions consist of about 80% of our business. Our other practice areas are commercial real estate, limited liability company formation for real estate investors & others, title searching, reverse mortgages, wills & trusts and foreclosures. We offer all this while being providers for the Hyatt Legal Plan, so that every option is available to our clients. We want you to arrive at the closing table knowing what is going on. Your real estate attorney in CT should let you know how much money you will need to bring at least one day before closing.
"Thank you, Chris & Valerie!!! By far, the easiest house closing I've ever participated in!!!!"
"We very much enjoyed working with you and everyone else on the team. I can see why you came so highly recommended. Best of luck to you."
Thank you Chris for helping us realize our dream of becoming homeowners! You and your team were instrumental in helping us navigate through such an important decision in our lives. The personal attention and prompt responses we received, especially form Valerie, made us feel like we were doing business with close, trusted friends. I don't know how many people can describe their closing as fun but we certainly can! Thank you for making this process easy to understand and completely hassle free. You and your office are truly valued and well respected members of both the real estate world and our community.
We just closed on our house today and Chris was great! He made sure we understood all of the paperwork and that we were happy with the condition of the home. We brought 2 young children with us and he was very accommodating with the huge double stroller we brought in as well as my 10 month old crawling all over the place. Everyone made sure the process went as quickly as possible (which definitely helps with young children!) while still making sure it was done correctly and that we were happy with the results. I would most definitely recommend the Law Office of Chris Albanese if you're looking for someone while closing on your house!!!
This was our first time buying a home in CT. My husband and I had been previous homeowners in WA, but we knew the home buying process was different state by state. When we decided to buy a home in CT, we were told by our realtor that we needed to have a closing attorney when signing our closing documents. We chose Chris because he was very knowledgeable in the VA home buying process, since he was retired military. He made my husband and I feel comfortable and at ease while we went through all the closing documents. I had also requested with our loan company that we close on our new home with 26 days, so that we could celebrate our daughter’s birthday in our new home. Chris and Valerie worked together with our loan company to make sure that this happened. We actually closed on our new home in 25 days! I was so thankful. My daughter had a wonderful birthday slumber party. I know it would not have been possible without Chris & Valerie being diligent and committed to meeting this deadline. Thank you Chris & Valerie.
Chris Albanese and his team were extremely professional, friendly and incredibly helpful during our process of buying a home. They walked us through every step, answering every question we had, enduring we were prepared with everything we needed. At closing, we laughed the entire time. Our entire home buying process was stress free and enjoyable. I highly recommend using this firm.
