UPDATE: All remaining classes will be focused on issues relevant to First Time Homebuyers. New, updated topics below.
Once again, WaLaw Realty is offering a free home buying workshop to anyone interested in learning more about the Washington home buying process or WaLaw Realty. In fact, we’re offering five of ’em! These classes will run from 6pm to about 8pm here at our new office in Lower Queen Anne. We’ll provide pizza, beer and soda.
Whether you’re a first time homebuyer or an old pro, you’ll undoubtedly learn something new at these free home buying classes. Plus, you’ll learn about the WaLaw model that combines the services of a real estate agent with the skills of an attorney, all for a fee substantially less than what you would pay a typical agent.
