Residential Real Estate Buyers: Our services are a flat fee and we collect our fee at the time of your closing. Our flat rate includes review, modification and negotiation of the terms of the purchase agreement, negotiate issues raised by the property inspection, review the title insurance commitment and closing documents and provide complete representation through the closing of the transaction.
Residential Real Estate Sellers: We review and if necessary negotiate and modify the terms of the real estate brokerage listing agreement, review, modify and negotiate the terms of the real estate contract, obtain the title insurance commitment and survey, prepare the deed and other closing documents and provide representation through the closing of the transaction. Lauren is a registered title agent for First American Title and Fidelity National Title, so there is always a title office nearby for your convenience. Additionally, most sellers, elect to sign over power of attorney to Lauren to sign the settlement statement at the closing so that they do not have to take time off to attend.
Commercial Real Estate: We offer a very competitive hourly rate to handle your transaction. Commercial transactions have more unknown circumstances that come up throughout the deal as such there is no flat fee rate that applies.
