"Roz's sharp attention to detail, calm demeanor, and quick turnaround make her the ideal residential attorney. She makes sure that her clients are protected; issues are dealt with promptly and professionally. Nothing unravels under her close watch; she is a deal saver. I have worked with Roz on many transactions and have only had great results, every time."
"I started working with Roz about 7 years ago when a colleague of mine introduced me to her. I only recommend her for all my buyers and sellers. She is very detail oriented and I always have peace of mind working with her. Roz is always responsive to all of my clients throughout the entire transaction. I love working with Roz, because of all her hard work she makes me look good as a broker. I highly recommend working with her and all my clients enjoy her as well!"
"I worked with Roz on [my] sell/buy deal that all needed to be done on a tight time line and I would not have been able to successfully execute these two deals without her. Her responsiveness, efficiency and support was beyond valuable and critical to these two deals. I could not recommend her enough to people looking to buy or sell property in Manhattan. She is an all star."
"Roz was instrumental in leading us through a complicated transaction whereby we were buying two adjacent apartments, from two different sellers, each with a separate contract and attorney, all while negotiating the purchase as a combination in concept for approval by the Co-op board. As a first time homebuyer it was incredibly valuable to have to Roz's experience and judgment to guide me through the process. We closed without a hitch!"
