Neil Garfinkel is quoted in an article by AnnaMaria Andriotis in SmartMoney “Home-Swapping Sites No Easy Fix For Sellers”

An excerpt appears below:

“Really treat this transaction as you would treat any other,” says Neil Garfinkel, a real estate attorney and partner at the New York-based firm, Abrams Garfinkel Margolis Bergson.

Think twice before accepting the attorney or closing agent recommended by the web site, says Garfinkel. Instead, shop around for a real estate attorney who knows the law in the city or state where you’re planning on moving. “Make sure that…your interests are adequately represented,” he says.
