ALL Clients

I work with clients, buyers & sellers, regardless of whether it is a distressed or traditional sale, via an Attorney-Client Representation Agreement as required by the State Bar of California, my business practice done in concert with my E&O insurance carrier. Some representations are done on a flat fee or on an hourly fee basis.

Short Sales

On short sales, I work with Realtors via an Referral Agreement that defines the respective scope of responsibilities .. basically:

  • Realtors list / market / sell
  • I provide legal & other advice and negotiate with lender for short sale approval.

Regular Sales

On traditional representations, I work with Realtors via an Referral Agreement with

  • responsibilities,
  • costs and
  • commissions shared equally.
