Real Estate

Property Disputes, Landlord/Tenant

Kitsap County enjoys an above-average home ownership rate, with over 2/3rds of homes being owner-occupied (U.S. Census. 2008) With lower land prices and easy access to Seattle, it’s a great place to own a home.

 

Your home may be your biggest investment and your most prized possession— but it can also be the source of some of your biggest headaches. Perhaps you are ready to sell or refinance and find an unexpected problem with your title. Maybe you want to buy, but discover just before closing that the property is missing proper easements. You could have a few investment properties and find yourself with problem tenants. Or, you would be happy to stay put, but have an insoluble problem with your neighbors.

 

Whatever your real-estate related headache, we have the help you need. We work with real estate agents, contractors, and other professionals to help you realize your dreams. Our strengths are in negotiation and thinking outside the box to find you a peaceful, affordable, and timely solution.

Estate Planning

Estate Management, Property Management

According to a survey by Caring.com, only 42 percent of Americans have estate planning in place. Yet, estate planning doesn’t have to be scary, unpleasant, or expensive. It can mean the difference between leaving your family the legacy that you want and leaving them with a giant headache, or without the provision you intend. We tailor our services and costs to your family’s needs, whether simple or complex.

Even if you have made an estate plan in the past, if it’s been a while or your family situation has changed—through marriage, divorce, children reaching adulthood, or even an interstate move—it may be time for a checkup to ensure that the plan you have is the one you need now.
