Comprehensive Real Estate Sale and Purchase Guidance

My background in both the legal and financial aspects of real estate transactions provides a foundation for my insight into the purchase, sale, lease or development of residential or commercial properties. Using the knowledge gained throughout my decades of practice, I assist clients with numerous aspects of real estate transactions, including:

  • Documentation: I will thoroughly review all documents and contracts involved in the transaction to ensure your agreement is clearly reflected and work to minimize your potential exposure.
  • Contracts: My experience dealing with real estate contracts allows me to negotiate effectively with or on behalf of contractors, developers, landlord and lease applicants, and home owner associations. I also negotiate and draft easements and reciprocal easement agreements and the documentation needed for common interest developments, including drafting Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions and forming homeowner associations (HOAs).
  • Commercial leases: I assist landlords and tenants alike in drafting and negotiating commercial leases.
  • Tax credit financing transactions: I help nonprofit housing developers take advantage of special financing options available to their organizations.

My real estate and finance background enable me to offer efficient and cost-effective representation to move your real estate transaction toward a swift close. Unlike some larger firms where you may deal with multiple attorneys, you will receive my focused attention and personal communication.
