Rave Reviews from Clients

Estate Planning

I've referred several clients to Nancy and all of them have reported back that they are extremely happy with her services. She is one of the few people out there who not only does not avoid conflict, she willingly runs towards it. She greatly enjoys what she does and is a perfect fit for her career. I wholeheartedly endorse Nancy Chillag.

I have known Nancy for over a dozen years through my NARI Association and through her columns she has written for the professional trade magazines. I have also known of her work for several friends that I have referred to her company. She has also spoken at seminars I've attended. Her knowledge of the legal aspects regarding construction is known nationwide. She is very astute, smart, and has a great moral conviction to do things the right way. Her book on construction is right on target and should be read by anyone considering a large remodel of their home. Her expert knowledge of construction matters is bolstered by her own experience remodeling and her marriage to a general contractor. I can wholeheartedly recommend her to any homeowner or contractor needing the services of a very capable and competent attorney.

In the mid 90’s, while visiting the headquarters of the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors, I read aloud from their weekly bulletin: “Attorney Nancy Chillag will be the guest speaker at Friday’s marketing meeting.” An employee of the association spoke up, “You’d better go early and get a seat, she’s a big draw.” I did go early then and have done so ever since. She continues to be a driving force within the real estate community. She has a well-rounded grasp of the issues, complemented by a savvy understanding of transactions inside out which is uncommon. One only has to review her website and its phenomenal content to come to a similar conclusion. I’ve been fortunate to have her repeatedly guest on my risk-management cable programs as well as seminars. Whenever I’ve called upon her for advice, her input was spot-on which allowed me to negotiate without missing a beat. No wonder that I enthusiastically I give her book, “How to Survive a Remodel,” to my clients.
