Jonathan, you were an absolute pleasure to work with and we will absolutely be using you again when we buy our next property in Massachusetts
My wife passed away last year and Jonathan helped me get everything in order to help sell our home. It is difficult for me to get around, so he came over several times to meet with me in person to sign documents and talk hockey. He is a wonderful young man. I am very happy with his services. -Jim C.
I am in the military and relocate every few years for my job. As a result, my wife and I have owned houses in five different states before moving to Massachusetts. We had been through the home buying process before and it had been very stressful. However, working with Jon was such a different experience for us. He is really knowledgeable and good at communicating. He did a great job of explaining the process to us in a very easy to understand way – and he was funny too. The entire process was very enjoyable. We wish he could practice in more states.
I cannot say enough good things about Jonathan. I was referred to him by a mutual friend to help me with the sale of our house. My husband and I had lived there for 25 years and had raised our children there, so it was a very emotional process for us. Jonathan was so kind and understanding throughout. It felt like we were dealing with an old friend, which is why we invited him over for beers afterwards! He is a great attorney and an even better person.
My wife and I are so thankful we chose Canner Law and Jonathan as our attorney to help us buy our home. The day before our closing was set to take place, the people selling their home to us received what they thought was a better offer than ours. When we showed up to the closing, the sellers and their attorney indicated that they were not going to sell to us. We were devastated. We had just sold our home a couple days prior and we were living in a hotel with our kids for the time being. The school year was starting in a few weeks and we were so concerned.
Jonathan immediately knew the legal consequences of the sellers actions and began negotiating with their attorney. He was very calm, intelligent and direct with the sellers attorney, who became flustered. Let’s just say that we were glad that Jonathan was representing us!!
The negotiation process went on for over three hours. Jonathan continually took us into the hall to explain everything that was going on. He even called his office and had his colleagues start drafting a lawsuit in case the closing didn’t happen. It was really reassuring to know we were in such capable hands.
Eventually the sellers decided to sell the home to us and avoid any lawsuits. We closed that day and officially became owners of the home that afternoon.
We truly cannot thank Jonathan enough and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate attorney.
