Guiding You Through Your Real Estate Transaction
Buying or Selling a Home
If you are purchasing or selling a home, we can help you throughout the entire process. We review and negotiate the contract, work with you on title matters, obtain association documents, and organize the property survey and well & septic tests, as applicable. We also monitor contingencies, complete title reviews, and we coordinate and attend the closing to review the closing figures, title, lender documents, and to transfer documents with the client. This ensures that the process runs smoothly so that you can have a successful closing and peace of mind to enjoy your new home.
Buying or Selling a Commercial Property
If you are purchasing or selling a commercial property, there are many additional matters to consider, such as, zoning and land use, ALTA surveys, due diligence and environmental studies, reviewing existing leases, commercial loan documentation, lease and service contract assignments and title insurance coverages and endorsements. We have the experience necessary to navigate these additional considerations, and to protect the interests of our clients throughout the negotiation and closing of a commercial real estate transaction.
