Real Estate

We are pleased to represent buyers, sellers and developers in a full range of real estate transactions. If you are looking for advice before contracting to purchase, sell or lease a property, contact us for a consultation.

Residential Real Estate
Buying a home can be intimidating, overwhelming, and often frustrating. We understand, and we want this to be a positive experience for our clients. We work closely with all of the people involved – buyers, real estate agents, lenders, sellers – to make the experience as smooth and painless as possible. In coordinating your closing, we will:

  • Search the title to the property
  • Obtain property tax information
  • Confirm home association dues/requirement
  • Request payoffs for mortgages and equity lines, where applicable
  • Prepare deed and lean waivers, where applicable
  • Review and explain all loan documents
  • Record the deed and deed of trust
  • Collect and disburse all funds

A home is the biggest investment many people will make and whether you are buying, selling or refinancing, your family needs to trust that your attorney has your best interest in mind. We firmly believe that you should understand what has happened, why, and what you are signing! Our team is available throughout the process and beyond to answer questions and explain what you can expect.

After closing
Once you have purchased your home, things may come up. You may find yourself in a dispute with your neighbor or needing advice on how to minimize the tax liability on the property or transferring title to a loved one. Our attorneys have experience ranging from boundary disputes to applications for rezoning to limiting liability through LLCs. If you are concerned about an issue with your property, call for a consultation with Maggie. We will explain the legal landscape and help you plan your next steps.
