Dear Real Estate Professional: As you know, the downturn in the real estate market has been a trying time for all of us. Yet I firmly believe that every situation creates opportunity. In this letter, I will explain this opportunity and tell you how it can benefit you. In my case, I am fortunate to have an estate planning practice to fill the void created when real estate closings diminished. But I found that I am still doing a lot of real estate work – only now it is from the estate and business planning perspective. I realized I had always incorporated real estate work into my estate planning practice, but I had not incorporated estate and business planning into my real estate work. This realization showed me an opportunity to better serve my clients and at the same time establish a niche for my practice. Instead of just writing title insurance and handling the closing, I can incorporate my knowledge and experience in estate planning and business issues. I can help put the transaction together, manage the financial, liability, estate, business and tax issues up front, and create sales where a traditional approach would have failed.

This same opportunity exists for you, and I would like to help you capitalize on it.

Many times a seller believes that the only way to succeed in a sale is to demand a higher price. Together, we can help sellers identify their true goals and show them alternatives to reach them. There are endless opportunities where a unique approach can create a deal that initially appeared unworkable. For example: – You have successfully negotiated a complex deal. Will your customer walk because the terms look too complicated? Who will help them understand? – Your buyer wants to avoid personal liability in owning the property. What are his options? – Your buyer wants to know the best way to own the property. What are the pros and cons of each type of ownership? – Your seller is an estate or relative of a deceased owner. Is probate necessary? How can you make the property marketable? Helping customers resolve these issues leads to more sales and closings. As a real estate and estate planning attorney with more than 20 years of experience, I am uniquely qualified to advise in complicated deals that affect your customer’s “big picture.”


I would like to work with you and offer a team approach to help your customers solve their problems and close their transactions. Here are three ways I can help: 1. Refer your customer to me and we can all work together to make the deal happen. 2. Send an email to and sign up for my monthly newsletter. Each month you will receive articles and information to give you new ideas and help you structure deals that will work in today’s market. 3. Check back to this website periodically.  Here you will find tools and articles that take a unique perspective on issues that affect your business and success. Being creative and thinking outside of the box can create deals. Educating your clients as to new ideas can help them understand their alternatives and allow them and you to be successful. You will have more than a listing – you’ll have a partnership where you work together with your clients to solve their problems. This creates loyalty, leads to repeat business, referrals and, of course – commissions. I look forward to working with you and your customers. If you have any questions regarding these ideas, I would love to hear from you. Please don’t forget to request my newsletter.
