Two new partners and an associate attorney are joining Touchstone Closing, while the company is also opening a new retail closing office to meet market demand. Touchstone recently celebrated five years in business.
Peter E. Smith is joining the firm as a new partner, while David Allosso was promoted to partner and Michelle Beauregard is joining the team as an associate attorney.
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome Pete and Michelle to the Touchstone Closing team and to see David rise to partner,” said John K. O’Donohue, Touchstone co-founder and managing partner, in a press release. “As the housing market continues to be strong, we’re very pleased to have made these personnel decisions to put us in the best possible position to support our partners and this booming market.”
Smith, an Atkinson, New Hampshire, resident, has more than 15 years of experience in residential real estate transactions, including his own business. With Smith comes Touchstone’s new retail closing office at 289 Main St. in Salem, New Hampshire.
“I’ve been following Touchstone since their inception, and I’ve been very impressed by their achievements, team culture and the top-notch talent they’ve acquired,” Smith said in the release “I’m honored to be part of this team and excited to share Touchstone’s tremendous customer service and expertise with my current and future clients.”
Touchstone’s David Allosso hails from Billerica, Massachusetts, and has been promoted to partner. According to the release, local Realtors used Allosso as their preferred attorney for both their listing clients and personal closings, because of how involved he is in the process, his attention to detail and how skillfully he handles problems.
Chelmsford, Massachusetts, resident Michelle Beauregard joins Touchstone as an associate attorney. In 2008 during the economic crash and housing crisis, she evolved into the foreclosure/default field. Her practice has returned to negotiating purchase and sale agreements, reviewing title examinations, title curative and assisting real estate agents, buyers and sellers through the entire transaction process.
