Legal Services for Home Buyers and Sellers

Put Our Experience To Work For You

Buying or selling a Seattle home can be both exciting and stressful.  Having an experienced real estate lawyer on your side can make a world of difference. Our firm has invaluable relationships with local realtors and lenders. We can handle every aspect of a transaction, from the review, negotiation and drafting of purchase and sales agreements and loan documents, to providing advice concerning necessary inspections, engineering reports, and title insurance.

We work directly with clients purchasing a Seattle area home; clients selling their Seattle home; and with real estate agents requiring assistance on non-standard contracts from a Seattle real estate lawyer.

In addition to guiding our clients through buying or selling their home, we also offer unique experience in areas of real estate law including:

  • For Sale By Owner (FSBO) transactions;
  • Disclosure requirements when selling a home;
  • New construction contracts;
  • Navigating the escrow and title process;
  • Complex financing or ownership issues; and
  • Disputes regarding earnest money, contract terms, and commissions.

At Sternberg Thomson Okrent & Scher, we have represented individuals and families buy and sell their homes for more than 20 years. Our firm has considerable experience in all aspects of residential real estate transactions and is responsive to your individual real estate needs. We have helped countless home buyers and sellers protect their legal rights in one of the most important financial decisions most people make.

Ideally, our clients engage us at the beginning of a real estate transaction so that we can initially negotiate and structure the deal  to minimize the risks and maximize the benefits to our clients.  Contact our Seattle office today to schedule a consultation.
