We Will Assist You With Your Real Estate Purchase, Sale or Closing

Our attorneys will review the closing documents and attend the closing.
Why You Want an Attorney When You Are Involved in a Real Estate Transaction
If you are selling or purchasing residential or commercial property, you may be working with a realtor. A realtor cannot, however, practice law. Illinois law provides that a realtor cannot draft real estate sale or purchase contracts. It is an attorney's job to prepare all contracts relating to a sale or purchase of real property, as well as obtain and pass good, clean and marketable title and represent your interests at closing. Your realtor's job is to match a seller with a purchaser.
For experienced representation in commercial and residential real estate matters, contact us to schedule a confidential consultation. Consultations are offered by appointment during our regular office hours of 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and by appointment at other hours.
