Peter is the best!!! He is fast and really knows his stuff. I would highly recommend Peter Marx to anyone. We will use him again and again!!!
Peter and Susan helped my husband and I navigate through a taxing real estate transaction. Both are very responsive and accessible. Great experience. Thanks!
I'm a real estate broker and investor and have worked with Peter Marx for about 10 years now. I've done at least 35 deals with Peter during this time. He has always done a good job for me so I would recommend him highly to anyone needing a good real estate attorney. Besides being a good real estate attorney, he's also an interesting guy. He's a drummer in a funk band and has lots of good stories which is key when sitting around at a title company waiting for final funding approval.
It has been to 2 years since Peter Marx closed on our short sale deal. It was a very emotional time for me and I had a lot of questions and was not really trusting anyone. Peter was referred to us by my friend and from the beginning I knew I was in good hands. Peter, Susan and his Law Firm was very responsive answering every question and helped us in every step of the way and successfully closed .That was the best decision I ever made. Today I was able to buy another property and Peter was once again very helpful in the process, He was completely professional, thorough, and fast; but most of all he seemed like a genuinely good person. I am recommending Peter to all my family and friends. Thank you for all your hard work and for being so patient with me. .
Peter Marx is an excellent attorney and I recommend him all of the time without any hesitation. I am a residential real estate agent and I am constantly recommending Peter to my clients. My wife and I have also used him on our own transaction. Peter is super bright, very available, has a complete understanding of any and all real estate issues that can come up in a transaction. He also understands the subtle nuances of deals and he knows when to push and when to pull and how to put a deal together so it is in the best interest of his clients. Peter is also a super nice person and Peter and his office are a pleasure to work with you. You will be very fortunate if you use Peter as your attorney!
I highly recommend Peter Marx to anyone who is looking for an excellent real estate attorney. Not only is Peter super smart, he is also very savvy and knows how to put a deal together. I am a residential real estate broker and I recommend my clients to Peter all of the time. He has handled many tricky and difficult transactions over the years and he has never disappointed me. I have always been extremely impressed with his work. Peter has also represented my wife and me personally and we had an outstanding experience. I recommend Peter with pleasure and without hesitation.
When our previous real estate attorney fell off the face of the earth, we were referred by our agent, and a friend, to Peter Marx. Simply put, Peter was incredible. He helped us every step of the way and successfully was able to help us with the short sale of our condo. I wish I would have tried to do a short sale, and work with Peter long ago. our 5 year drama of a condo is done - thanks to all of Peter's hard work, efforts, and most of all being kind and pleasant to our negotiator at the bank. I can't say enough good things about Peter Marx!
