We represent buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate, handling all matters, from the negotiation of terms to the closing. We help buyers with unsatisfied contingencies, including due diligence contingencies for commercial clients and mortgage or home sale contingencies for residential clients. For sellers, we ensure that all contract obligations are satisfied and clear title is passed. We will also represent you in real estate litigation, if necessary.
