5-Star Reviews & Testimonials

Brian Z. - 2019

"Brian recently represented my wife and I with a home purchase. Brian was ultra responsive via email and phone when needed. Brian took time to explain every piece of the transaction during the close and made sure we were being protected beforehand during attorney review. Brian also has a really helpful timeline letter he sends which helps create milestones in the buying process."

Laura P. - 2019

"Brian help me close on the sale of my condo in 2019. I found him through an online search for affordable legal representation. I was worried that it could end up being a case of "you get what you pay for." In my first conversation, he explained how he was able to offer such a low fee for his services. He was wonderfully transparent, responsive, and helpful throughout the process. Other reviewers have already mentioned his road map which I, too, found so useful and reassuring. Brian is a good lawyer, not only good in terms of knowing the law and being a skilled communicator, but possessing goodness. I had a great experience, highly recommend!"

Cammie M. - 2019

"Brian represented me at the sale of two closings.  He works diligently on the behalf of his clients and stays in close communication from the beginning to the end of the closings.  I found Brian to be both honest and trustworthy.  He alerted me when he thought others were being untrustworthy.  For that I put a great deal of trust and confidence in him.  Without a doubt, I would whole-heartily recommend him."

Frank G. - 2019

"I used Brian Lohse for the closing on a "Sale by Owner" home....  Brian met all of our needs for the closing and was exceptional in responding to all our questions (even some beyond just the closing details).  I can say that Brian caught several incorrect items on the Buyers closing documents that needed revising and the Buyer's attorney agreed with all of Brian's changes.  I highly recommend using Brian for any real estate closing that you may have.

Tab S. - 2019

"Brian represented us on three transactions and did a superb job in making sure docs were in order and needed monies were held in escrow! We were overly happy with the results. His price is very reasonable!"

Brent B. - 2019

"Brian recently handled the sale of my property. He provided very detailed and clear instructions on the things i needed to do. At every step during the sales process, Brian would respond quickly to any messages or emails regarding the transaction, and was a fierce advocate for protecting my interests. He handled all of the closing paperwork, and made the entire process a breeze for me."

Melissa J. - 2019

"Brian did the sale of our home and purchase of our new home.  We couldn’t be happier with the support and attention to detail Brian gave to our transactions.  We had a very difficult seller on the home we were purchasing and Brian completely had our best interest and fought for us.  Hands down, the best attorney we’ve ever worked with."

Susan S. - 2018

"I worked with Brian for both the purchase of my new home and the sale of my condo and was very pleased with how he handled these high value transactions. I was impressed right out of the gate as Brian provided very clear and thorough instructions .... He was very accessible and responsive and kept me informed through the entire process.

I would recommend Brian and will definitely use him again on future real estate transactions."

Bernard C. - 2018

"I hired Brian to represent me in a difficult real estate transaction that was held in a trust.I could not have found a more caring and knowlegeable real estate attorney. He walked me through the whole process and was always available whenever I needed him. Any real estate dealings that I have in the future will be with Brian. That’s how much confidence I have in him."

Joey L. - 2018

"Being a first time home buyer, and not having a realtor, left me with many questions that Brian answered for me. He walked me through every step of the way.  He was always available and explained everything in a way that I could understand. He went above and beyond my expectations. In the future I will always contact him and recommend first."

Mark O. - 2018

"My wife and I are delighted that we chose Brian Lohse to help us close on our house this summer.  The week before the closing, we ran into some serious complications that threatened to derail the process.  Brian hit them head on and was dogged in his persistence on our behalf.  Nothing got delayed, and he still only charged us the normal rate.  He is talented, organized, and on our side."

T.M.K. - 2018

"Brian Lohse is the best lawyer that I have ever worked with. Among the reasons why I say that is because he has always called me back or replied to my emails within 1 business day. I know that there are a lot of lawyers that you have to keep bugging them to get a reply but not Brian. He answers all your questions and explains everything to you so that you can make the best decision if something comes up. I highly recommend Brian Lohse!"

Nikol S. - 2018

"Attorney Lohse represented me in the sale of a townhouse with plenty of twists and turns.  He was most professional, diligent and saw to it the deal closed.  
I have an eye for detail and was MOST comfortable trusting that he was operating in MY best interest.   I highly recommend him whether you're a seasoned buyer or novice."

Peggy S. - 2018

"Worked with Brian on a closing while I was out of state.  He was excellent.  Delivered on everything promised AND his price was VERY reasonable and much less than the prices of the attorneys suggested by my realtor.  You will be in good hands having Brian handle your closing.  Highly, highly recommend!"

Timothy G. - 2018

"Brian helped us close with both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our house.  He had great insights along the way to help us avoid certain pitfalls and unnecessary financial burdens along the way."

Morgan M. - 2018

"If you are a first time buyer or seasoned in real estate know that Brian is a lawyer who knows his stuff and is focused on real estate law.  Great to talk to and quick with emails and phone calls... Was a great help resolving a few snags and he gets the jobs done.  Will go above and beyond for his clients.  

Don't pick a a criminal attorney or any attorney who thinks they can handle real estate. Get one who actually does [know] what they are doing."

Bill D. - 2017

"Brian Lohse represented my wife and I on our first home purchase as well as working towards selling our condo.  We both couldn't be happier having Brian as our attorney.  His  guidance throughout the entire process is extremely helpful and ensures you are fully prepared as a buyer or seller.


He was very prompt in responding to our inquiries and very helpful during the A/I negotiation period with the seller.  I especially appreciated how Brian explained all the finer details at our closing, so we knew full well what we were getting into!  You can tell he cares about his clients and really works hard to ensure you are well represented from start to finish.  I highly recommend Brian for your real estate transactions."

Emmatine H. - 2017

"Brian Lohse was fantastic in every respect when helped us sell our home.  His availability to our needs was outstanding, and we felt secure and well-represented.  Every step of the way, he explained the process to our satisfaction and provided us with sound and helpful advice and guidance.  The closing was smooth and painless.  I was so impressed with his performance throughout the entire process, that we chose Brian to assist with the sale of my elderly parent's home some months later.  

The sale of my parent's home was more a bit more challenging due to the dysfunctional interdepartmental workings of their village offices.  However, Brian kept us informed of each hiccup, and promptly followed through with the proper actions as needed to put things back on course and avoid excessive delays to closing.  

Many thanks to Brian!"
