Shivji Law assisted me with the purchase of my condo. Their team was great from start to end. At our meeting, Farouk explained all of the legal and mortgage documents very clearly. I was very happy with the level of service and the quality of the work. I will definitely use them again and I highly recommend them to anyone completing a real estate transaction!

Shivji Law was referred to me by a colleague at my squash club. The law firm assisted us with the purchase of our new property. Farouk and his team did a great job of handling our rush closing. During our meeting Farouk did an excellent job of explaining all the legal documents and answering all of our questions. I was very happy with the level of service at Shivji Law and I found the fees to be very reasonable. I will be sure to recommend them to friends and colleagues.

Mr. Shivji has always been very responsive from day one. My first inquiry to him came back less than 5 mins, which is super impressive in today’s busy and fast-paced real estate world. We also really appreciated Farouk’s attention to details in catching some of the errors the other parties made during our buying transaction. I would highly recommend Shivji Law to anyone needed a good real estate lawyer.

Leona L.

Experience with Shivji Law was outstanding and highly recommend them. Being a lawyer and knowing how much work goes into a home purchase, the impeccable work Farouk and Keane performed pulling off a closing in an unbelievably short timeframe was impressive and is a precedent other law firms should endeavour to meet.

Shannon M.

I used Shivji law for the sale of my first home. Farouk really took the time to ensure I understood the process and went through everything in detail with me. Farouk was extremely professional and everything was done in a timely manner. I highly recommend Shivji Law to others.

Melissa D.

Having moved from one city to another, I was quite stressed out about tackling the long list of things to do during the sale of my property. Right after my first phone call with Shivji Law office, I knew I had made the right pick. My transaction was executed seamlessly. Farouk was wonderful to meet with in-person and concisely answered any lingering questions I had. My concerns were put to ease when I experienced the smooth, fast, and convenient services of Shivji Law. Thanks for everything, Farouk and team!

Harpreet A.

I just bought my first home, and had no clue how to proceed. Farouk broke the process down for me in an efficient and professional manner, with absolutely no error in his communications and documentation.
Not to mention, he was an absolute delight to work with – quite the charismatic guy, haha! Thanks again, Farouk!

Benjamin K.

Farouk was a pleasure to deal with, he took his time in going over every detail of our house purchase. Our paperwork was completed in a professional and timely manner. I also recommended Shivji Law to my parents when they were looking to draft up their will. Farouk went above and beyond in getting to know them personally in order to tailor their will to their needs. I have and will continue to recommend Shivji Law to friends, family and colleagues in the future.

Kate C.

Farouk is one of the most professional and accommodating lawyers I have ever dealt with and would never think twice to go anywhere else after our experience of buying our house. He was always extremely well organized and thoughtful in ensuring we understood all the details to the purchase of our first home. I would highly recommend anyone interested in buying or financing a home to work with Farouk and his rock-star team.

Mark B.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Farouk and his team at Shivji Law recently in purchasing our first home and of course, we were nervous. He walked us through the entire process, through the legal lingo and dealt with our bank. He completed everything without a hitch and within a short period. We never once worried about the process dragging on with Farouk like we heard with other Real Estate Lawyers. It went so smoothly, I recommended him to a colleague of mine and I’d do it again. Great service, professional and gives great focus to his clients. Thanks again!

Jackie F.

Farouk and his team were great to deal with. After checking around at many places in Calgary, their prices were the best out there we could find and they provided a perfect experience. We had a shorter time-frame but they accommodated everything and Farouk was very efficient and articulate when we met with him to finalize everything. Highly recommended.

Kevin K.

We found this to be a friendly and very professional law firm.
Farouk Shivji and his colleagues are pleasant to deal with and have a very quick response time.
We especially liked the personal interaction; Farouk showed real interest in us and our construction project. A bonus is that they offer great value for money, and with excellent quality and delivery. Highly recommended for all your real estate legal needs.

Rich L.

I was given a specific time-line to purchase and get possession of a new house. After finding out that the homebuilder lawyer was no longer representing me, Farouk was referred to me. Farouk was able to accommodate to my busy schedule no problem and was able to schedule me in within’ 24 hours after contacting him. He was very informative while reviewing documents and made sure the home purchase process was explained thoroughly to my understanding. Farouk and his team were quick to respond to my inquiries and handled all aspects of the closing in a smooth and timely manner. I highly recommend Farouk Shivji and Shivji Law.

Sophana T.

Farouk and the Team at Shivji Law make the house buying and selling process as easy as possible. I have work with Farouk on both a purchase and a sale and his diligence, professionalism and personality make him my ‘go-to’ lawyer for real estate. He is responsive and happy to act as a trusted advisor instead of just a transnational lawyer – something I think is a rare commodity today.

Natalie M.

When I Googled Calgary’s best real estate lawyer , Shivji Law came up and the reviews are excellent. So I emailed Mr. Shivji and got a reply within minutes. From then on emails back and forth all very prompt and answers right to the point. The communication was smooth and the quote was very reasonable such that I didn’t even get a second opinion. His team had everything prepped and instructions clearly laid out, when it was time to sign the documents, Mr.Shivji explained each document in a very clear and easy to understand manner . All questions we(my family) have asked have been answered. It was a very professional transaction and we felt been very well served.
I am confident that to hire your own lawyer for real estate purchase is the right thing to do for yourself and the money spent will be well worth it.
I highly recommend Shivji Law.

Jason S.

Great experience for my first home purchase. Very easy to deal with, and simple explanations of legal documents were extremely helpful.

Scott G.

Farouk Shivji and his team recently helped me through the process of buying my first property. If I had any questions regarding the fees or what to expect during the acquisition his team was very quick to respond and answer any concerns I had. I would recommend him if you are looking for a Real Estate Lawyer.
