We have helped thousands of clients buy and sell personal residences, investment properties and commercial buildings. Let us put our team to work for you.

Here Is How We Are Doing It

Expertise. There are hundreds if not thousands of lawyers claiming to practice real estate in the Chicagoland area. Many, if not most of them, are competent and they know the basic formula of how to perform a real estate transaction.

We do all the formula things too; we make the same contract modifications in attorney review letters, we help you deal with inspection issues, we check in with lenders and appraisers and homeowner’s associations to make sure everyone is on track for your closing.

When you are the buyer, we attend the closing with you. We review and explain the documents. When you are the seller, we attend the closing, so you don’t have to, and we will wire you the proceeds.

There’s nothing new about that process and it hasn’t changed in decades. What we offer is the true expertise that can only come from practicing real estate law every single day. Generalists who claim to do a little bit of everything often overlook the details and fail to appreciate the minor nuisances of real estate law that can have a huge impact on your bottom line. If you’re going to hire a lawyer for a real estate transaction, hire an expert.

Volume. Real Estate law requires volume to be efficient and we handle volume. We’ve done this a few thousand times and we make it as much like clockwork as we can. When something goes wrong on your file, whether it is that your property didn’t appraise for the purchase price, the well and septic report came back with issues, your lender cannot get their questionnaire filled out by the homeowner’s association, we will be there. Even though we made it into a formula, we get to know your file and your process uniquely, so we can think of and address your problems before they happen. And when problems come up that we could not foresee, we adapt and react quickly to diffuse and manage the situation. Our goal is when you walk away from the deal, whether it’s with new keys or proceeds check, you will be glad we were there to help.

Here is why we are doing it

We believe that every buyer and seller of property should have access to competent counsel at a fair price. The Chicagoland area is unique in that almost all Buyers and Sellers of real estate use attorneys and we think that is important.  Most people do not realize how stressful buying or selling property is and how many things can go wrong.  There are a lot of things to remember and slip ups on the part of a buyer or seller can easily result in costly litigation.  Having an expert handle the process for you greatly reduces your chances of a lawsuit and often results in you saving money at the closing table.  Everyone deserves an advocate who is dedicated to help them close. For most us, our home is our single largest investment we will own during our lifetimes. Hiring a real estate lawyer when you buy or sell such a large investment can help provide peace of mind that your investment is safe and protected.

That’s why we do this and that’s why we’re different.
