Save money by hiring an attorney to handle the transaction, or hire us just for document review.
No need to divert money from the sale to pay for real estate agents when you already know the property you want to buy, or the home you want to sell. Allow one of our licensed Ohio lawyers to help you instead.
We charge a flat fee of $195 up front and $1,795 paid at closing. No real estate agent commissions necessary!
We charge a flat fee of $495 to review closing and loan documents for buyers. You must be represented by a real estate agent to qualify for this service.
Only one side pays a fee to us because we can only represent either the buyer or the seller, but not both, in the same transaction (no dual agencies). We always recommend each side be represented by their own attorney.

Drafting/completing addenda to the contract as desired by you.

Communication with you regarding the terms of the sale.
Negotiations on your behalf and at your direction regarding the sale.

We can assist with properties located anywhere in Ohio, even if the buyers or sellers are located out of state. However, our law firm is licensed only in Ohio, so we are able to assist with property sales in Ohio only.
