Why am I better off with a lawyer rather than just a real estate agent?

For many reasons and here are the two big ones. First, as lawyers, we can never represent both sides in a transaction.  We focus only on our clients and protecting their best interests. Real estate agents can (and do) represent both sides which creates an unavoidable conflict of interest.  Second, as lawyers, we are qualified and licensed to help you navigate the complexities of real estate transactions. We provide actual legal advice and analysis including custom contract drafting, review of title documents, instructing escrow agents, and reviewing closing documents. Real estate agents are only permitted to fill in the blanks on pre-printed forms, leaving you at greater risk of an unexpected problem down the road.
