Residential Real Estate

The real estate process consists of three (3) phases: the purchase and sale agreement, preparation for the closing and the closing itself.

We will represent you whether you are the Buyer or Seller from start to finish. We will assist you in the contract preparation and negotiation, in the preparation for the closing (the inspections, survey, title insurance), and at the closing itself.

Our firm does not charge to meet with you initially, and my attorney fees are based on a project basis. These fees will usually he substantially lower if we issue the title policy.

Our firm is a policy-issuing agent of Attorneys’ Title Insurance Fund, Inc. and First American Title Insurance Company. The Fund is the largest title insurance underwriter in Florida and the seventh largest in the U.S. First American is the second largest title insurance underwriter in Florida and the largest in the U.S.

The advantage to working with an attorney in a real estate closing is that the Buyer and Seller will get the title insurance required for the closing and will also he provided with legal counsel to represent their interests. Our firm’s title insurance charges are very competitive.
