Purchasing your first co-op in Manhattan can be an incredibly stressful experience. The process, paperwork, and legal verbiage can be overwhelming and all-consuming – and I’m an attorney, so I’m used to death by a thousand paper cuts. After interviewing several firms, I was quickly impressed by my first conversation with Kacey Rosemberg. She is sharp, a straight shooter and breaks it down to plain English, always advocating for you as her client. She caught several issues which could have cost us the co-op – and as buyers without a broker, it was critical to have a strong legal advocate on our side. Kacey, Nathalie Marcille, Andres Armada, and Jordan Daniel are also very patient and responsive. They never let questions go unanswered for more than twenty-four hours, often responding within minutes, and we exchanged hundreds of emails! BONUS: if your transaction does not move forward, Katz will not charge you anything on the good faith basis that you will consider using them for your next transaction. That gave us comfort that they were just as invested as us in the process. Katz are consummate professionals, fairly priced, and know the key players in the real estate market, making the process from contract to closing a flawless transaction. Make an investment in your peace of mind, and one of the biggest monetary investments of your life. You won’t be disappointed.

As a first time buyer of a co-op, the process at times was overwhelming and stressful, but after all is said and done I am glad I went with Steven Szczesny at Katz and Matz to represent me during this transaction. My hunt for the right firm started by speaking with multiple attorneys, which only made my stress level worse. After speaking with Steven he was able to ease my concerns and reassure me that he will guide me throughout the process (contract negotiation and closing) without adding anymore headaches to my plate. He took the time to fully explain the process step by step, his approach to fair negotiation, and what was needed from me. His patience, thoroughness, and accessibility to contact him whenever allowed me to trust him to get the job done. I have no complaints about this firm or Steven and if I had to do it again, I would go with Katz and Matz without a doubt. Thank you Steven!

I just want to take a moment to thank you for your professionalism and hard work in getting this deal done.  I don't have many occasions to do real estate transactions in New York, but if I do have the occasion to pass your name along, I will. 

-Coop Seller


Honestly, some of the things you've done with me have been nothing short of remarkable. Very few attorneys could do what you've done.

-Real Estate Broker


Dear Team Katz Matz, I am so pleased. Thank you for a job well done, I know this was not an easy closing. I will totally recommend you to others. It's clear you both handle the tough situations with the highest professionalism. Thank you.

Steven, thank you so much for accommodating all of us today. That was one of the best informational sessions with a buyer I have ever been party to. Love your upbeat demeanor.

-Real Estate Broker


We truly cannot thank you enough for all of your help over the last several months.  As first time buyers and detail oriented people we know we were not always the easiest clients, but your patience never wavered.    We appreciated your opinions, advice and referrals throughout the process and would not hesitate to recommend you and your firm in a heartbeat.  We hope to work with you many more times in the future!

We just want to thank all of you for such a smooth closing and for the bottle of cabernet. We certainly enjoyed it that same night as we celebrated our new apartment. It was great to work once again with such a professional team and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Bruce, it was very recently I was shredding old contracts I no longer need to store and noted how far back your name was on these contracts… deals long forgotten about.  You and your firm have blossomed in my 27 years in this business knowing you. You deserve and earned it!  You always had a great reputation and this is known throughout the industry!  Throughout my years I have met so many attorneys, the good, the bad, and the ugly! You and your firm are one class act!!  Brilliance with PERSONALITY!              

-Real Estate Broker


I feel very fortunate and am very grateful for the terrific work you all did on my behalf. Beyond all the legal aspects of both the sale of my former apartment and purchase of the new one being handled seamlessly, you all provided me with much needed and frequent reassurance during a time of great stress. Lori really went above and beyond the call of duty and with only several days in which to do it, negotiated the same day closings; this saved me the expense of moving my things in and out of storage, which was huge.  Heartfelt thanks for your efforts on my behalf and for your great kindness.

I wanted to drop a note to express my appreciation with the expediency and professionalism that your associate Kacey has displayed thus far with my closing.  I have worked with many attorneys, both personally and professionally, and after my first conversation with Kacey, I chose to go with your firm.  Kacey has been ridiculously responsive every single time I have reached out with a thought or concern.  Without our world today of iPhones and blackberries, I suspect she would have been tied to her desk to ensure her immediacy in her responses.  She is quick to grasp any situation, has been particularly sensitive to my situation, and very diligent in her follow up of all parties relevant to the transaction.
