“It was an excellent experience working with your organization! I really appreciate your business for selling my property in Canada while I reside in the USA. The closing was completed on time and very efficiently. Thank you.”
“We had the pleasure of working with Bonnie during the fall of 2015. She greatly assisted us with the sale of our mother’s house – not only with the final closing documents, but throughout the entire process. Her information booklet regarding every detail necessary for a successful move, was highly organized, very professional, and extremely helpful. It contained a checklist that was invaluable, reminding us of services/utilities we needed to cancel, as well as many other tasks we had to complete prior to closing. Bonnie also looked after my mother’s will, and worked quickly to expedite probate so that it would not interfere with the closing date of the house. She also handled other issues related to the will in a most sensitive and proficient manner.
We found Bonnie to be personable, understanding and most competent. She was always available to answer our questions, and scheduled appointments at times that were convenient for us. All documents were completed efficiently, accurately and in a timely fashion. We know that our family will be using her services in the future.”

“Lorne, I wanted to thank you very much for your help and support in closing a deal for mutual clients of ours. I know there were some last minute hiccups, but you dealt with them in a professional, confident manner. I appreciate that more than you know.
Unfortunately, many solicitors would have handled the circumstances differently and been critical of the lender, the process, and me and in turn, that would have caused panic with the clients. You handled things with a sense of calmness and kept me in the loop, so collectively we were able to assure the clients that everything would be okay.
Thanks again and I hope to work together in the future.”
— Jason Magder, Northwood Mortgage
“We have used Bonnie Shuman to help us on the purchase and sale of our last two homes. We highly recommend Bonnie and her team. Bonnie is very client focused, demonstrates strong attention to detail and has deep knowledge of real estate law. On our most recent purchase, we encountered an extremely difficult Vendor. Bonnie was able to guide us through the process and even stayed on top of the file while away from the office. She brings a practical approach to the process and was calm and level headed through a very difficult transaction. We highly recommend her and her team for anyone entering into a real estate transaction. Thanks Bonnie!”

“Lorne – I can’t tell you how appreciative I am for your legal counsel on my recent real estate transaction. What should have been routine turned out to be anything but and with your guidance, we avoided a lawsuit and managed to close on schedule. You were always available when I called and your direction was always clear. Thank you and your staff (as everyone I spoke to was always helpful). I look forward to working with your firm in the not too distant future with formalizing my will.”

Referred to me by my real estate agent, Lorne has provided valuable advice regarding my new property which helped me with my decision. His efficient and professional approach made the whole process very smooth, quick and easy for me. I also appreciated his reasonable fees, as well as his central location.

“Lorne has been an invaluable resource and attorney for all matters pertaining to the purchase of my condominium. He and his team were professional, thorough, honest, efficient and responsive to all my legal needs. Even after the purchase of my condo, Lorne went above and beyond reasonable efforts to ensure that all matters were closed out effectively and that all parties were fairly and respectfully dealt with. I am incredibly satisfied with Lorne and his team and would not only use his services again, but I would also highly recommend him to anyone else looking for a qualified real estate attorney. I am very happy that I went with him!”

We would like to thank you so much for your help handling our sale and purchase transactions. You were recommended to us by our real estate agent and we are very happy to have chosen you. Besides our purchase transaction which was relatively smooth, you helped us navigate a very complex sale of a co-op apartment that involved numerous parties including a board of directors, a property management company and a buyer who changed lawyers midstream. Throughout these transactions, and especially our sale transaction, you showed complete professionalism in the midst of a number of challenging situations due to numerous missteps by other parties. You helped us bring together the various parties and ensured the purchase and sale took place as expected. We were impressed at how you were always reachable, how you helped explain things, and efficiently handled all the paperwork ahead of or on time. We will definitely keep you in mind for any future legal work and would be happy to recommend you and your company to anyone looking for similar work. We also appreciate the post sale and purchase help you have provided. Thanks again.”

“Buying one’s own home can either be a dream come true or a nightmare if without sound advice. Fairly new here in Canada, we needed all the support and valuable advice one could get. As part of the major players in the purchase of our new home, Lorne Shuman served as our lawyer when we were looking into buying a home for our family. The first house we wanted, though it appeared to be very nice from the outside in, apparently had property management problems. Thankfully, Lorne prudently looked into it and was able to save us from a high-risk transaction and saved us from a lot of headaches, heartaches and losing hard-earned cash. Subsequently, we ended up getting a better house than before and through Lorne’s advice, was finally able to secure the house of our dreams. We are very grateful and delighted with the firm of Isenberg & Shuman who did an exceptional service to us during the time when we needed them most.”

“Thank you for your attention and concern regarding our home’s title insurance. Your follow through and persistence made it much easier for us to know that after all we did not have to fight against the previous owner in order to find out who had to pay for our yard renovation, in order to comply with the City’s Bylaw. At this time we are getting estimates from a couple of contractors. Mr. John Tracy of the Insurance company has been nice and co-operative and things are going well. Thanks again for all you have done for my family and myself.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to pass on a few good words regarding the service I received from Lorne Shuman of Isenberg & Shuman Law Firm. I have had the opportunity to refer some Real Estate clients to Lorne and have been greatly impressed with his service to them. Lorne is well versed when it comes to the many facets of Real Estate law and his approach with first time home buyers is much appreciated.
Most recently, he provided council over the phone to a potential client which he was not obligated to do. IT was some extra service that enabled these buyers to actually buy a property and Lorne had not even been retained by them.
I trust Lorne with my clients and feel confident that they will receive the best service out there. Thanks Lorne for a job well done.
More business to come your way…”
— Robert Archambault | Remax Sales Representative
“Lorne Shuman is a partner with Isenberg & Shuman, Real Estate lawyers, who acted for my wife and I during our purchase of a house. It was not a difficult transaction, but we were concerned because we would both be out of town on the day of closing.
Lorne indicated that this would not be a problem and gave us a letter that clearly detailed the steps of the process we were entering into. In addition he emphasized the action items that he required from us, and a timetable that we were to adhere to. We followed instructions and, as a result, the transaction was completed on time, and without worry on our part. The house keys were collected by our Real Estate agent, and were ready and available at the time Lorne said they would be.
Lorne is clearly an experience real estate lawyer, who provides sound advice and instructions. As long as you follow the instructions and adhere to the timeframe he gives, the work will be done without worry or concern.
Lorne did a great job for my wife and I, and I strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a lawyer to conduct their real estate transaction.”
