Real estate attorneys typically step in after the selling price and terms have been established by the real estate professionals and all parties have signed the contract. They advise and negotiate in order to expedite transactions according to the laws and statutes that often differ at the county, city and state level. Our legal partners provide residents and investors with additional protection, ensuring the integrity and compliance of the sale, purchase, refinance, construction or remodel of land or property, and ultimately peace of mind in complex real estate transactions.

We partner with a wide range of legal entities, local attorneys and nationwide law firms to ensure each and every real estate transaction is legal and fully compliant with the applicable laws and statutes. We offer our attorneys a full suite of products and services to enhance the real estate solutions we jointly provide to our customers.
