Chris' office added a personal touch. We felt like we were dealing with family. There weren't too many challenges. Just a quick closing. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He was very personal and treated us with courtesy and respect. Another military member recommended him. I felt empowered and in control. Everybody kept me updated on what was going on which made it a very smooth process.
Chris has a spectacular support team who works with him! The best part was that we did everything long distance (from Virginia to Connecticut), but it felt like he was right there with us the entire way along! Every time we had questions, no matter whether we called or emailed, someone responded almost immediately with helpful information and all the answers we needed! They are a top notch group! The greatest challenge was getting everything together we needed to close in about 2-3 weeks and doing it all long distance! Everything happened faster than we believed possible and everything went smoothly at closing, very impressive!
Yes, we would recommend Chris! He is there for his clients, and his team makes sure you feel comfortable. His explanations are clear-cut. He is expedient, practical, and adept in his field. He is also very mindful and witty. His staff were on point always. The best thing he did, was helping us navigate through a contract for an owner to owner house sale. He pointed out several discrepancies in the contract that lead to us not buying that house, and that was before he was officially our lawyer. We eventually found a home better suited to us and our needs as a family. We did not have any issues with closing. It was smooth sailing with the exception of a few delays on the part of our sellers and bank.
As a Navy family, we appreciated his military background and thought it would be a good fit for us - we were right! We used his services for the purchase, re-finance and sale of our first home and then again for the purchase of our second home. We were very impressed with the speed of the buying process. Chris is efficient and prepared. During the purchase of our first home and our re-finance, my husband was deployed and we needed a POA. Chris guided me through the process and made sure I had the proper documents for our closings.
Buying a house can be a very overwhelming experience. Buying a second home on a one income family is down right terrifying! Thankfully, we had Chris by our side every step of the way. Moreover, anytime I had questions or concerns Chris was quick to get back to me with answers to ease my mind. My husband is in the military so it left me with making a lot of decisions on my own. Chris himself is retired military so he knew what I was going through and helped alleviate some of the stress I had with having so much on my shoulders. Furthermore, Chris is not only trustworthy but one of the most stand up guys I have ever met! Both my husband and I trusted him 100% and knew that he would keep my family's best interest at heart, not his like most attorneys you find these days. When it came time for closing things got hectic and there was talk of the closing date being pushed back. This was not an acceptable option for my family as we were within days of the end of our lease and due with our third child in a little over two weeks. Chris made sure to do everything in his power to see that closing happened on time and made it go smoothly. I can not thank him enough! I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home or questions about owning a home. Thank you again for everything Chris, we love our new home!!!!
Had a great experience with Chris as our closing attorney! He was very professional, organized, and went out of his way to get to know us. Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a high quality lawyer!
Services where transparent, service was at home friendly, and Chris was attentive to my needs and/or questions.
As a real estate broker, it is important to have a list of well qualified professionals to take care of my clients. I am always happy to recommend Chris and his team because he continues the level of service I expect. I have closed many transactions with their office and look forward to closing many more closings in the future.
Chris and Valerie (his paralegal) are not only excellent at what they do, but wonderful people as well. The seller of the property I purchased was quite difficult to work with, but Chris and Valerie kept the process afloat. Chris is far and away the nicest attorney I have ever met, and Valerie patiently answered a seemingly infinite number of emails from both myself and my realtor. The process of purchasing a home (as well as selling, in my case) is going to be extremely stressful regardless, but Chris and Valerie made it much more manageable, and ultimately I am thrilled with my new home. Highly recommended!
Some lawyers handle real estate closings as part of their practice but Chris Albanese specializes in residential and commercial real estate transactions. I highly recommend the Law Office of Chris Albanese for my real estate clients.
Chris and Valerie,
Thank you for all of your help with the Beth R. purchase in Ledyard. You were always very attentive to her needs throughout the process, which we greatly appreciated! It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to doing so again in the future!
Thanks to Chris who literally saved my home and its equity by intervening in a tax foreclosure sale for me, which he did for free.
Thank you, Chris & Valerie!!! By far, the easiest house closing I've ever participated in!!!!
Chris, Brian and Val,
Great job with the C.H. closing. Thanks again for all that you do.
If you need an attorney in this area of Connecticut, Chris is the guy to go to. We do not live in the area but had purchased a second home in the New London area. Chris was referred to us by Marilyn Lusher our real estate agent and handled this purchase for us very efficiently. There was an issue/problem a year later and Chris very efficiently, professionally and promptly handled it for us at his cost. We know now that we have our attorney in Connecticut and can relax knowing that we can count on him. Thanks Chris for everything.
After closing, Chris and his staff actively pursued the correction of a title issue that had come up. They didn't wipe their hands and just walk away from my family.
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.
Hi Brian and Chris!
I'm writing to say thank you for all of your outstanding, even heroic, efforts in closing the short sale of our home. You did an incredible job of negotiating with both lenders and closing the deal with practically nothing out of pocket for us. With a house worth half of the original purchase price, that was amazing! You responded quickly to any questions that we had and literally did all the heavy lifting. Thanks again, we are extremely grateful!
Thank you so much! It is always a pleasure working with courteous and professional title companies as yourself. I wish that all closing could be this easy. I really appreciate you for all your help and quick responses.
I just wanted to tell you how much I have appreciated your help over the past few months. I know short sales are a tremendous amount of work and trouble, for not much of a payout.
It was a hard decision for us to make, and not one that we took lightly, yet you never treated me with judgment or like this whole mess was a hassle. Your assistance and professionalism (and humor!) made a tough situation bearable.
Anyway, I would love to send you a bottle of champagne, or a big bunch of flowers, but as evidenced by the term "short sale" and all it involves ... I can't. So again, thank you for all your hard work :)), and know that it was not taken for granted.
Chris and Brian,
On behalf of my wife Maria, son Christopher and myself we want to express our sincere gratitude. Words cannot describe how much we appreciate your help during the short sales process.
You saved us over $65,000.00! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Thank you so much for ALL OF the help with this difficult short sale closing!!! I thank you for your patience and help - always being just a phone call away. I look forward to working with you again soon.
Thank you to the Albanese legal group for the exceptional effort to enable the closing before I headed out on business.
