New York NCS
Stephanie Paulos

VP & Commercial Counsel

What I have found here at Commonwealth is a group of extraordinarily competent, but also warm and welcoming people who are always ready to help. We are definitely a group of varied individuals – but we are a TEAM!


Steph serves as Vice President and Commercial Counsel for Commonwealth’s New York National Commercial Services operation (NYC NCS). She does extensive work on multisite transactions and works “hands-on” with customers and local offices to resolve title and survey issues. Steph is responsible for the examination, review and preparation of various title and real estate related documents including corporate formation and authority, leases, owner and loan pro formas, and settlement statements.
Steph joined the Company in 2014 as a closer, but was already familiar with Commonwealth from her days as a real estate attorney with various firms (Stark Amron, Goldberg Weprin, Herrick Feinstein, Pryor Cashman). She states that the always congenial voice of Frank Hoffman on the phone exemplified the place for her and she is now thrilled to be a part of the team.
Steph earned her J.D. from NY Law School and is admitted to the New York State Bar. She currently resides in Astoria, Queens and represents the Borough of Queens on the steering committee of a not-for-profit organization.
