Need advice transferring ownership of property and selling company

Hello expats in Turkey,

My name is Robin. I opened a short term rental company in Istanbul in 2007. It is a registered Turkish company (LLC). I've stopped doing business in Turkey and need to close my business. At the time I bought, foreigners could not buy Turkish properties in historic areas, only companies. So I was advised to open a limited Turkish company which I did in order to buy a flat.

I have returned to the US to care for my aging parents and have been unable to sell my flat. I am still required to pay an accountant each month as well as "stoppage tax" because I still have a company.

I need a trustworthy English-speaking expert who can help me transfer ownership of my flat from my company to myself - and I need help closing my Turkish limited company.

Have any of you purchased or sold properties and/ or closed companies with the aid of a Turkish lawyer or accountant? My accountant speaks only Turkish so we can not communicate. The Turkish lawyer who helped me set up the company and purchase my property is demanding a very high fee to help me.

Can you recommend someone? I live in the States and hope to be able to handle this from here, but can come to Turkey if necessary.
