Real Estate Brokers for the Next Generation of Buyers & Sellers
WaLaw Realty is owned and operated by Marc Holmes, an attorney as well as a licensed real estate broker. Marc also owns and operates our law firm Holmes Law Group PLLC. When you sign on to work with us, you get the benefit of working with both businesses – that’s our two-in-one magic!
From its beginning in 2005, Blackmon Holmes (now Holmes Law Group) focused on helping people buy or sell homes without incurring the costs of a real estate agent. As we handled more and more of these transactions, we realized our clients would definitely benefit from real estate brokerage services too. WaLaw Realty was born soon after.
With this model, we’re able to represent you as your lawyers, not just as your agents. This makes a big difference – and we offer expertise and services that conventional real estate agents can’t. As lawyers, we have a legal obligation that real estate agents do not have to adhere to – which means we are always looking out for your best interests.
Our fee structure is different too. We charge a flat fee for our services, which is a lot less than you’d pay in commissions. Typically, agents are paid 3% of the sale price to represent you – a big chunk of change compared to our flat rate of $4,995.
Of course, we’re not for everyone. Our services are geared towards people who want to do some of the work themselves and appreciate the value of being represented by an attorney for such a large financial transaction. But if you want somebody else to do everything, you’re willing to pay for it, and you’re okay with not having a lawyer involved, you’d probably prefer a traditional agent.
