Real Estate

Purchasing or buying property requires detailed-oriented, meticulous analysis of the terms and conditions of a contract, as well as exhaustive due diligence in connection with a review of condition of title, access, entitlements, and physical aspects of the property. Often, investors, developers and entrepreneurs do not have time to focus on the myriad details and address all of these issues before contract performance deadlines expire. They need the assistance of someone who has done it many times before.

As a partner and participant in guarding our clients’ interests, we identify issues that need to be discussed with an accountant, title company, land planning professional, engineer, architect or lender. Taking the initiative for our clients, we act to preempt complications that could derail a financially lucrative deal in the middle of negotiations, or worse yet, during the development, construction, or sales phases of the project.
