BANKING/REAL ESTATE

In the residential real estate area, the firm has represented institutional lenders in condominium, cooperative, and one to four family loan transactions closing over two thousand (2,000) transactions in the past two years. Because of our expertise and quality control, we are one of the few firms in Nassau County authorized to close "CEMA's" and cooperative loans for J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, Countrywide Home Loans and HSBC Mortgage Corp.. We are very familiar with the strict time constraints placed on lenders and the requirements of the secondary market. It has been our practice to provide 24 hour turnaround time to institutional lenders on residential real estate transactions.

Our fully automated residential lending practice includes a Local Area Network with a proprietary software package that includes all Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac and FHA documents (all Notes, Mortgages, Riders, etc.) The system's capabilities has permitted us to customize the program to include both "lender-specific" documents as well as firm drafted forms.

Our primary goal is always the protection of the lender's interest and saleability of their loans, while at the same time ensuring high quality service to their customers and referral sources.

The firm has a wide variety of experience in the commercial real estate lending area, having represented both institutional lenders as well as developers in financing transactions.
