The round-about in the photo above is found in downtown Edmonds, Washington, just down the hill from where we live.

Sometimes we get lucky in love. We find the one we want to live the rest of our lives with.Sialia_sialis_Michigan_Love_Birds_NC

Sometimes we get lucky in real estate. We find the buyer or seller we want to do business with on our own – without the assistance of a broker.

Sometimes we sell to or buy from relatives or friends. A lot of real estate is sold by word of mouth, without the benefit of a real estate broker or a real estate listing.

Four-leaf_clover_NCIf you are so fortunate, feel free to give me a call. I will write up the transaction for you, set up title insurance, set up escrow with the title company, and follow the transaction through to closing.

I do not charge for initial telephone inquiries. I do not start charging fees unless and until we agree on what the fee will be. 

If you are a buyer and you have not found the property you want to buy, bear in mind that I am both an attorney and a broker. I can help you find the property you are looking for.

If you are a seller and you have not been able to find a buyer on your own, list with me. In many cases I will get you a better price than what you would have gotten selling FSBO.The key to getting the highest price is to create an advertising sensation, which is what we do.

The Foreclosure Train Rolls On

The Foreclosure Train Rolls On

Private corporations such as Loan Star and Caliber bought thousands of mortgages. The government pays them to modify mortgages, but they are quick to foreclose. They invest in high value instead of low value homes. They should be required to serve the interest of the local neighborhood as are banks. They should be regulated as banks.
