I regularly recommend trusted contractors, photographers, designers, and other vendors to my clients. When it comes to lawyers, sometimes they ask if it’s necessary to get a real estate lawyer specifically, and I always say yes. Why? Because when it comes to something as important as buying or selling a home, it just makes sense to ensure everyone working on the deal is a specialist.
A professional in this field can save you both time and money. They’re experienced, they know contracts, and they also know what has or hasn’t historically worked in the industry. Additionally, your real estate lawyer will typically get you better title rates, and when they go through your inspection report will see points of interest right away; a lawyer with little or no experience in the field can require much more time to sort through your needs before closing.
Another important thing to remember is that generally speaking, real estate lawyers who work in the same city all know one another. If they’re constantly doing deals throughout the year, then your lawyer will know the backgrounds of other lawyers involved, and can give you that kind of useful information right away. When their rapport is good it benefits you, as things move along more quickly.
Because they’re the best in the industry, we regularly refer clients to attorneys Joe Palmisano (who I’ve worked with for 30 years) and Cambi Cann. My team and I can always trust them to do exceptional work, both for us and any of our clients!
