Do I need an Attorney if I have a Real Estate Agent?
Real estate agents are paid a commission on real estate transactions and therefore have a self-interested, financial incentive to see your home purchase or sale finalized. He or she may be more inclined to compromise on certain issues in order to avoid jeopardizing a deal.
As your legal representative, our attorney is only interested in protecting your legal and financial interests. If we identify terms and conditions that create unnecessary and unwanted liability, we tell you about them so you can protect yourself. If we believe you are better off reserving your right to litigate post-sale problems with your home, we explain why and encourage you to reject an arbitration clause. If we believe agreeing to repair environmental hazards discovered after the sale of your home exposes you to unwanted liability, we tell you upfront.
