We recently purchased a home for the first time, and hired Ed and his firm to represent us in the process. Ed and Anita were more than helpful throughout the entire process. Being first time buyers, they were very patient with us and walked us through various different legalities that come along with purchasing a new home. They were responsive and thorough, making the process for us as stress free as possible. I would definitely recommend them to family, friends, or anyone else looking for representation when purchasing a home.
I was introduced to Ed Fitterrer, through a friend, who recommended he would be able to help with the transaction of purchasing a home. From our initial consultation Ed was very clear about all of the potential outcomes I was looking at and was very sincere in his approach. He was quick to respond to my emails and made sure to remind me that I could call/email him whenever I had questions or concerns regarding my first time home purchase. He sent me communications whenever we had new information and when he received any and all documents, and worked closely with my realtor and all parties involved Ed listened to me when I had questions and explained in detail how he can assist me. Ed was extremely professional and I would/will recommend him to anyone I know who needs legal advice or consultations
Excellent support on Real Estate – Ed Fitterer provided expert counsel in our real estate closing. When an issue arose after the closing he was able to secure an appropriate remedy. I am so glad we chose this firm; they go beyond just the documents, they provide exceptional professional service.
