We recently had to work with Mr. Berkoben on a home closing and he was a nightmare every step of the way. He was never available, dragged on the process an entire month longer than necessary, and was unprofessional enough to not even show up to the closing (not to mention, he did not even make contact with our attorney's office to let us know he would not be joining us until he was already over an hour late). We almost backed away from the deal two times due to his disinterest in the transaction, lack of communication, and rude nature. Even his client's Realtor was embarrassed by the nature in which he conducted business and stated she did not recommend using him. If you are considering him, don't, and if he is the attorney representing the seller of a house you want, forget moving forward with the deal (even if the house is free!)...it's more of a headache than anyone should have to be subjected to.
