Dealing with intricacies of estate transfers

Lee Johnson, you made this long and arduous deal gratifying . Thank you.

I find it unsettling when someone says they don’t want to use a real estate agent for their property deal. It makes me nervous about the bind-ability of the contract and the potential issues with the steps prior to signing title transfer and delivering payment. I have a working knowledge of contract law but no expertise in property law and especially the intricacies in estate transfers. I bought a house directly from the executrix of an estate who did not want to use a real estate agent.  Lee verified the market value of the property and helped me consider all my needs and wants, confirming that this property was right for me.  Lee Johnson ended up completing all the purchase documents and the many extensions over 4 months until probate was complete.  He is extremely practical, knowledgeable and really cares about his client’s needs.  With his extensive knowledge in property insurance as a former brokerage owner, he understands risk and reward, commercial and residential values and the importance of the details in all the contracts.  He made sure that both parties met every deadline over the 4 months.  He responded to texts and emails promptly and with diligence. Plus, he’s fun to work with. Always keeping things real and light-hearted.

I am so grateful for your personal and professional support through this process.
