Attorney At Law

Providing personalized quality legal services for decades

North Carolina Residential Real Estate Lawyer

We pride ourselves on the highest level of personalized service for our residential real estate clients.  Unlike many firms, all of the legal aspects of any real estate transaction, including title searches and closings, are handled by an attorney to insure our quality standards are upheld.

Purchasing Real Estate:

The most common residential transaction is the purchase of a new property. While a lot of attention is focused on the closing, the total real estate process is much more involved and lengthier than many people realize. We can guide you from the contract phase through the title search, the closing and the follow-up, as well as make sure you know what you can do to help the transaction to stay on track.

Our experience covers thousands of closings on various types of residential real estate in locations throughout North Carolina. Whether you are buying a new main residence, a mountain retreat or a beach house, we know how to handle it. Our longstanding working relationships with lenders and Chapel Hill  and Triangle area real estate agents help us serve you better.  For answers to frequently asked real estate questions, click here.

Refinancing Property:

Handling the legal aspects of refinancing homes is also a long-standing part of our practice. We are used to working with all types of lenders, whether local or not.  We help our clients streamline their refinances including the coordination of home equity lines or other complex situations.

Selling Real Estate:

Assisting sellers with the sale of their real estate is another service we offer. This ranges from drafting and reviewing contracts to the preparation of the seller’s closing documents (deed, etc.).  We also can act as the escrow agent on behalf of our clients.  For answers to frequently asked real estate questions, click here.
