I have been dealing with Aura LLP Lawyers for the last few years and I found that their staff is very helpful and professional especially the Lawyer himself, Ryan Martin. Their staff members go extra miles to help I would highly recommend this Law firm to everyone and I will continue to deal with them in the future. I give them 5 Stars all the way.

Ryan and his team always got back to me straight away and never left me hanging. They were very helpful. When I had some uploading issues because my computer was down, they made it easy for me and were willing to go the extra mile. I am very pleased with Aura LLP.

– Mark Bonhert, Refinancing Homeowner

The entire process was extremely organized and informing. We loved that there was an introduction call to understand our goals and walk us through the process especially as first time home owners. A few days before close, we had a walk through with Ryan which he explained all the documents in detail. Jocelyn was great for answering any questions we had and ensured that everything went smoothly. I highly recommend Aura LLP for quality service.

– Brenda Tran, First Time Home Buyer

Excellent service. Andreas and Jocelyn were professional and made sure all my questions were answered. The closing was very smooth. Thank you for making the process stress free for a first time home buyer. Highly recommended.

– Nawabi Abdul Qahir, First Time Home Buyer (Toronto)

My wife and I greatly appreciated Ryan and his team’s services on our recent home purchase. Ryan made the process very straight-forward for us from start to finish, taking the time to explain to us the purpose of each document and why we were signing what we were signing, and ensuring that the process was completed as much as possible in advance of our closing date. Jocelyn and Stephanie were also very helpful, providing us with informatory materials and keeping us up to date on status. Services were also delivered entirely remotely as promised. Should we find ourselves conducting another real estate transaction in the future, we will definitely engage Aura LLP again. Thanks Ryan and team!

– Ryan Kelly, Property Owner

“Five Stars”

– Hank Chen, First Time Home Buyer

“Working with Andreas was nothing but a success. As a first time home buyer I had no idea what the process entailed but Andreas and the team walked us through it beginning to end. The process took longer than expected but the team was respectful, professional and helpful. They went to bat for us multiple times, they help our hand the entire way and they got the job done smoothly ! If I would go back and work with another team, I wouldn’t. Honestly couldn’t be any happier!”

– Lordeen Anang, First Time Home Buyer

My wife, Gillian and I would like to extend to Ryan and all at Aura LLP our heartfelt gratitude, and would recommend the Aura team highly to anyone. As first time buyers, when Ryan was recommended to us, we had no idea of what closing a purchase would entail. We are grateful to have had his expertise. The level of service that we received was exceptional. At every stage of the process, the information requested was explicit and timely, so we were able to respond without delay or complications. Memorable moments include meeting on Zoom and thorough follow-up explanations. It is with great pleasure and confidence that we recommend Aura LLP.

– Andrew Rudder, First Time Home Buyer

We were recommended to the Aura team from close friends who had recently purchased a home and had loved their experience. We worked with Ryan and his team to not only close on the condo we sold, but also help us purchase our new home. We greatly appreciated Ryan’s on-boarding process as well as the ease of the digital forms. Every question we had was answered with clarity and really promptly from him and the team. Even with the pandemic it still felt like we were in the room with Ryan as he deconstructed all the legal elements of closing in a straightforward manner.

Eleni Alpous, Real Estate Owner

“Being represented by Aura LLP was the most pleasant legal experience I have ever had. Ryan and the team at Aura helped make the process of selling and purchasing a home a hassle-free endeavor. Ryan’s knowledge, professionalism, dedication, and clear communication was everything that we could hope for. Ryan went over and above to secure the best deal possible, and I would enthusiastically recommend Aura LLP to anyone requiring legal representation.”

– Robert Doolittle, Real Estate Owner

“Excellent service. I highly recommend them and will continue to work with them. All steps were handled professionally without any issues.”

– Billy Yap, First-time Home Buyer

“I have been working with Ryan for over 3 years. He is a very professional, but more important he is very attentive. This is why he gets my business and my referrals.”

– Roberto Pelaccia, HomeOwner; Mortgage Agent

“Was a first time home buyer and needed a lawyer for closing. Andreas (and team) were extremely professional and got my closing done smoothly and promptly. They where more than happy and nice enough to explain and answer any questions I had. Thanks again and would highly recommend and use their service again.”

– Maria Galaxidas, First-Time Homebuyer

“I have never met a lawyer as responsive, diligent and professional as Andreas from Aura LLP. He helped us close on our home purchase which was anything but smooth. Andreas helped us navigate challenges with fixtures vs chattels, solar panel micoFIT contracts and damages. He kept in contact with us and even followed up with us after closing which is an extremely nice touch. I am certain all the other lawyers at Aura are just as good, but if you can, I’d recommend requesting Andreas. He’ll take care of you like he took care of us.”

– Thuy Mai, HomeOwner

“After spending a great deal of time contact several law firms to help with my real estate purchase, I selected Aura LLP lawyers and damn glad I did! Other firms I contacted, I was always connected with an assistance or intake person who had me fill out forms and sent me information for their fees which was convoluted and had the actual true fees buried and hidden in their document. Not sure why this is so common practice nowadays. I initially reached out to Aura because of their  advertised pricing on their website which was then plainly and clearly confirmed in writing by Andreas who handled all the communication himself. Andreas is the lawyer who worked on my transaction. The very fact that Andreas answered my questions and handled my intake really set him apart from the crowd of other firms.

The initial consultation with Andreas reinforced the fact that we had made the right choice as he re-assured us he will deal with any and all issues arising from the transaction. Unfortunately our purchase was riddled with issues with the seller and agent. Ultimately they had ripped out fixtures they were not supposed to and we are in the processing of dealing with that post-closing.

Not only did Andreas gave care to our transaction like it was his own, he helped us understand our rights and options for litigation for various issues we had with the seller. In total, I’d estimate that he’d provided us 2-3 hours of extra legal advice and consultation above and beyond the real estate purchase. That was beyond appreciated and reminds of what a great decision it was to have him on our side.

And did I mention his rate was below all the other folks that I contacted?

Andreas was responsive, professional, firm, and not only makes you feel that he serves your best interest, he demonstrates it through his attention and actions. This glowing review may seem like a shill but I have gladly asked Andreas to use me as a reference for anything that is interested to know more about my experience with Aura LLP.

In my previous real estate transactions I would have rarely spoken to the lawyer…it would only be on the signing of the documents briefly. Would be lucky if he even responded to any emails…usually it’s their assistant that I speak to.

If you are on the fence or wondering if you should engage Aura, just book a consultation, and ask to speak with Andreas and you’ll know what I mean. You’ll be glad you have him at your corner of the ring as I sure am!”

– Long Nguyen, HomeOwner

“We used Aura’s service for purchasing our condo in Downtown Toronto. I highly recommend using Aura services. We had some challenges in our closing process and Andreas personally spent the whole day to make sure our closing goes through. The team is responsive, professional and overall I am very happy that we chose Aura.”

We found that Ryan had the specific expertise to walk us through the process as co-owners and to prepare the agreements tailored to our situation. We purchased the home during the pandemic and Ryan and particularly, Jocelyn were responsive, flexible, and accommodating under these circumstances when we could not meet in person. Ryan was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend Aura LLP especially to those who are looking to enter into co-ownership or c-op housing arrangements.”

– Quinn Grundy, Home Co-Owner (Toronto)

I have no hesitation in recommending Aura LLP.”

– David Wood, Music Industry Executive; Real Estate Owner

“Aura LLP helped me purchase my first home and guided me from start to finish! Andreas initially put me in contact with a fantastic real estate agent, Lesli Gaynor, and they were both there with me every step of the way. It was great to see their working relationship in action. Lesli herself did amazing work in an exceptionally tight timeline to find my new home! Andreas was always responsive and patient with my questions and gave thorough explanations to reassure my unease. The varied knowledge provided helped me to avoid any common pitfalls for first home buyers. I had a particular situation in which I needed to do an exceedingly quick close, Andreas was extraordinarily accommodating in the quick turnaround to make this happen, I couldn’t have done it without him. Legal advice, real estate advice or music management, give him a part in any venture, you’ll be impressed and come away with something new.”

Their competence and wealth of knowledge in real estate law and commercial law assisted me in making decisions for structuring my business and they have given me insight into avoiding legal pitfalls that could arise while owning commercial and residential property.

I highly recommend these guys.”

– Dr. Kristian Dorken, Real Estate Owner/Investor

“As a Financial professional, I have an opportunity to work with a clientele from different professional backgrounds. It is a cognitive journey of learning clients (not only) their financial needs, but their views, hopes, aspirations… The best way to learn about the collective that we live in. The best way to learn about the presents and future about our society. Week ago I had a client that gave me hope that there is bright for all of us. Lawyer that not only loves his profession and proceeds with his full capacity of knowledge, but human with heart and exceptional kindness. It was one of the most memorable appointments where ideas were exchanged and all wrapped up with the outgoing and respectful personality that Ryan Martin radiates.  This helped me to make my right choices in a future when ever I will need legal advise.

–Anonymous, Journalist & Published Author

“I initially contacted Andreas because I needed an intellectual property lawyer to advise me on a publishing contract.  On a Sunday afternoon, I left a message, expecting he’d be in touch the following business day.  But he emailed me within the hour, offering to review the contract.  Even though it was his last week before going on vacation, he made the time to meet with me twice, do an in-depth analysis of the document, suggest improvements, and negotiate with the publisher.  He even arranged for a colleague to continue the negotiation process in his absence.  I was so impressed that a month later I asked him to review a contract I was offered by a literary agent.

On both occasions, Andreas made it his priority to protect my legal and financial interests as well as to ensure the contracts reflected the relationship I wanted with a publisher or agent.  To that effect, he carefully explained the implications of the original contracts and the rationale for any changes he proposed.

I have no hesitation in recommending Andreas to anyone in the creative community, and I look forward to working with him in the future.”

– Leonardo Dell’Anno, Producer, Artist Manager

“My wife and I contacted Andreas Kalogiannides because we needed a lawyer who was well versed in music contracts. Our daughter, a minor, had been asked to sign with a label as a new artist. As it’s an ever changing industry that we were not familiar with, we wanted to make sure our daughter had someone who could negotiate the best deal for her new career. Andreas was very clear on what he liked and didn’t like about the initial offer and helped us to obtain and negotiate a new offer that satisfied all parties. As we live in a different city, Andreas explained everything via emails and phone conversations so we could be confident about our decisions. We were very pleased that Andreas travelled to meet us and to attend our daughter’s first big concert. He will continue to be a valuable member of our team moving forward.”

Andreas provides more than his expert legal services; He goes above and beyond to support his artist’s as well as all artists in any capacity that he possibly can. Andreas is an active advocate for artists, and champions not only the issues of his clients but the causes of the arts scene in Toronto overall.”
