The purchase, development, use or refinance of real estate is a complex and stressful process. We are here to help you through this, whether you are the buyer or seller. Both attorneys and realtors can provide dual representation for both the buyer and the seller. Although we effectively and frequently represent both parties without any problems, we may also advise that you consider your own independent representation – whether you are the buyer or seller. It generally doesn’t cost you any more than if the same firm represents both the buyer's and seller's interests. However, it makes a difference in the attorney's approach and the role they play.
We are here from prior to, or receipt of, the offer to well after closing. Our attorneys want to assure that you understand the process and procedures. We attempt to make ourselves available to you and your realtor when you are considering the purchase or sale of real estate - after hours and weekends. This is to make sure that your offer or acceptance of the real estate contract is in your best interest and it meets your specific needs. We feel that this is the most important of the documents that you are entitled to modify. Thereafter, we strive to close smoothly and on time, to the extent it is within our control.
Collins and Burkett Law Firm is also pleased to announce our teaming with the Real Estate School of South Carolina to offer continuing education classes to realtors. We see this opportunity as an opportunity to teach and, more importantly, learn from your realtor of what contractual and other issues affect the real estate industry on a daily basis. We strive for continued improvement, exchange of information and knowledge. We truly see the real estate industry as a problem-solving exercise and a team effort with realtors, lenders, inspectors, developers, local government and others. We want to foster and instill a cross-discipline approach that benefits the most important people – our clients, which are the buyers and sellers. So, give us a call. I think you will find our rate very competitive and our service exemplary, ethical and client-focused.
We are a full-service real estate firm, dealing with residential and commercial closings, simple and complex refinances, land development, eminent domain, contracts, all leases, land use and local governmental regulatory matters, homeowners’ association covenants and much more. Call us and explain your situation and see what we have to offer!
