When a probate or trust calls for the sale of real property, one of your most valuable allies is a knowledgeable real estate team. Your team can provide you with information about market conditions, pricing and strategies. An experienced team can also help you, and your clients, to understand the transaction – and to get the terms you want and need. Free of the emotional ties that sometimes complicate decision-making, a skilled team can save you time, money and headaches and support you as you make important choices during the transaction.

What to look for:

· Your team should be up to date on local and regional markets and experienced in meeting the requirements of the court.
· Your team needs an established network of qualified, trained associates throughout the region who can assist with properties beyond local neighborhoods.
· A qualified team will make sure that you have the most current contract documentation and disclosure forms for real property transactions.
· Your team should be able to provide straightforward explanations in non-technical terms to lawyers, accountants, trustees, administrators, conservators and, of course, clients.
· Your team should be available whenever you have a question – by office phone, cell phone, pager, voicemail, e-mail – and prepared to respond promptly.
· Look for a team who is trusted by your professional colleagues. Successful real estate teams are full-time professionals and, like doctors and jewelers, develop long-lasting relationships with their clients. The time you invest now in your selection could yield a friend and ally for life.
The time you invest now in your selection could, yield an ally for life.

Probate real estate sales are complicated legal matters and most real estate agents are not experienced or well-versed in the process. It makes sense to choose an agent who specializes in probate and trust real estate, and who understands the intricacies of pricing, marketing and presenting such properties. We represent your interests throughout the transaction; being able to understand and explain the process is essential.
