“My wife and I hired Attorney Felicia Di Giovanni in the summer and fall of 2018 to represent us in the sale of our house and in our purchase of a condominium, both in Oak Park.
She is experienced, and knowledgeable. She looked out for our interests in negotiating the terms of the contracts we signed. She explained to us the terms of those contracts and consulted with us during the negotiations. She promptly answered our questions during the process of selling our house and buying the condo, which can get pretty complex. When it came time to sign all the documents for the closings, she explained to us orally and clearly the meaning of each document before we signed it, and answered any questions we had.
She worked long hours for us on short notice. For instance, the family to whom we sold our house asked us to make about 20 repairs on the house before the closing, some major and some minor. She drafted a letter setting forth our response to those requests, working closely over one weekend with both us and our broker to get the response just right. The letter advised the buyers’ attorney that we might not be able to complete all the repairs by the closing date, which was about two weeks away. We also offered to give the buyers a credit on the sale price of the house if they would do the work themselves.
The buyers accepted that offer about 2 or 3 days before the closing, and said they did not want to postpone the closing. Attorney Di Giovanni had several other closings that day and hustled to get all the papers ready for us to sign the day before the closing. She sent us a draft of the closing statement (which lists the price of the transaction and various credits and costs) at 12:03 a.m. on the day before the closing so we could meet with her that morning at 9:30 a.m. to review and sign about 15 different documents necessary for the closing.
Throughout she was never harried and was always both professional and friendly.
I recommend her highly.”
