Buying and Selling Real Estate with Attorney Representation

You Want a Lawyer On Your Side When You Buy or Sell Real Estate.

We work hand-in-hand with our affiliated law firm.  When you hire us you are getting the services of an attorney and a Realtor. When you hire StoneCrest Realty to represent you while buying or selling, you work with us both as Realtors and as real estate attorneys – that’s our two-in-one promise! As attorneys we provide complete legal representation that you can count on, because your interests are protected above everything else. Protect yourself, use a real estate lawyer to buy or sell your home.

Selling a home is filled with legal contracts, disclosures, agreements and potential issues.  Why wouldn’t you have an attorney to review and advise you on these? You are clearly best served by not only having an experienced real estate agent and Realtor handle your listing but an experienced real estate attorney there as well to review and advise you on the entire sale process as well as legally represent your best interests.

It is important to leverage the expertise of an attorney to guide you through the sale process.   Whether it is to protect yourself against a future lawsuit from either the buyer or lender (in case of a short sale) or simply to handle a difficult negotiation with your  buyer or lender, we have the education, experience and skills to make sure you are protected and represented in the highest capacity.

Protecting Your Interests

Whether you plan to buy your first home, trade up to a larger home or downsize now that your children are out on their own, or relocate to a different area, our experienced real estate attorney can provide you with insight and legal guidance from start to finish.

I’m being sued by a law firm acting for BOFA for $170k on a deficiency judgment after they received $17k from a short sale settlement that closed in 12/2010. I was “forced to sign a letter” stating I was responsible “for the unpaid balance”

… Actual web inquiry submitted to the law firm by someone needing assistance now who didn’t have an attorney involved before in their short sale negotiation.

“We just sold our house on a short sale, and are now being sued by our second. We need a consultation to respond to the law suit and also decide if we need to file for bankruptcy.”
