Handling Probate Issues is NEVER Easy!
Whether you are a newly appointed executor, personal representative, or an attorney retained by the estate or appointed by the Court, it's an absolute certainty that there will be difficult moments ahead.
First, there are the obvious emotional aspects of the situation. Often, the person chosen as the executor or personal representative is also someone who is grieving the loss of that loved one or friend. Then, that same person is faced with the added challenge of having to make many decisions in areas in which they have no previous experience.
These decisions must also be made with the added pressure of knowing that whatever the results of these decisions are, they will likely be very closely scrutinized and (all too frequently) second-guessed by family and/or friends. Couple this with the legitimate concern that everything must be handled "legally and properly" as well as all the horror stories about probates that have gone badly, and the pressure and stress really begins to multiply.
Even if there is no real estate in the matters to be disposed of by the personal representative or executor, this is a big undertaking and when real estate is involved, the load is compounded.
We Can Absolutely Help Make This Tough Task Far Less Stressful!
Be aware that no one should ever tell you that being an executor or personal representative can truly be stress free because decisions will indeed have to be made. As experienced Real Estate Professionals, we will make sure you are always well-informed in regard to these decisions - especially related to real estate. We will also help you with some of the difficult conversations you may need to have with family members and other heirs. If you haven't yet secured the services of a competent probate attorney, we can help you choose one we know and are comfortable recommending.
We'll help you at every step along the way and do everything possible to steer you clear of the minefields. Of course, you'll still have to make some choices, but having us as an advisor - on your side, makes the task significantly less lonely.

OK.... So What About Selling The Real Estate That's Included In This Probate?
Here's where our experience and knowledge provide the best value to our clients. First, we will help you determine specifically what the most critical objective or objectives are in regard in the real estate that's involved in the probate.
DO YOU NEED TO DISPOSE OF THE PROPERTY AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE?
If so, we can often provide immediate cash buyers from our list of qualified investors. Often this is vital to allow a surviving spouse to move into a more suitable location, handle medical or other bills or simply get asset funds into the hands of the heirs quickly. Our investors can often make offers within 24 hours on almost any property and can probably close very quickly. Of course, timelines are frequently subject to the courts and filing timeline which are beyond our control, but our efforts minimize these delays whenever possible.
Our Sister Company, DownSizing Management, is familiar with the various options available in senior housing if a surviving spouse needs help with that decision. Many of the resources and experience are the same we use every day working with senior adults downsizing into a smaller home or a senior community.
DO YOU NEED TO MAXIMIZE THE SELLING PRICE TO PROVIDE THE GREATEST CASH BENEFIT TO THE HEIRS / STAKEHOLDERS?
When maximum revenue is the focus, we'll make certain the property is not only listed promptly, but marketed aggressively and intelligently to assure maximum exposure. We'll make sure you know exactly what the property is worth if you are willing to wait for the right buyer and we'll help you determine any possible repairs (if any) that might add more to the final selling price than their cost. In other words, providing the greatest bang for the buck. Be aware that all too often, ill-informed sellers spend far to much on repairs that do not even cover their cost in the final sale price. This is where our experience in repairing and re-selling homes combined with savvy marketing comes into play.
