Overview

 

Buying real estate is likely the biggest and most important purchase you will ever make, having a qualified broker and experienced real estate attorney on your side is a tremendous advantage. 

 

Real estate agents are legally prohibited from giving legal advice and may not draft or alter language in the standard printed MLS forms.  If you have a real estate legal question or need language drafted for an addendum our Flat Fee Package has you covered.    

 

Unlike most real estate agents, because the services are primarily legal, we will never act as a dual agent – we work for you and you only.    

 

Savings

 

The savings can be dramatic!  For example, the traditional realtor commission for the buyer's agent on the sale of a $700,000 sale would be $21,000 - our Flat Fee Package would only cost you $7,995 - you save $13,005, which is credited to you at closing.  

 

Services

 

When you hire us, you get the essential services of an experienced real estate agent plus the legal counsel of a lawyer – and you save money in the process!   As an experienced real estate lawyer, Jeff will make sure you understand the process and are fully protected.

 

How it Works

 

Your job is to search for properties online.  Once you have one or more possibilities, just send us the information and we will take it from there.
