Getting The Most Out Of A Real Estate Transaction

Real estate is a high-stakes endeavor for nearly all individuals, businesses and investors. We want to help you protect your finances and get the most value out of your real estate transaction.

Buying a home is often your largest lifetime investment and with this is mind it is imperative that your interests be protected. Similarly, there are just as many pitfalls involved with selling a home as there are with buying one. This is especially true if you are considering a “for sale by owner” transaction. From the initial offering to the final closing, our skills and experience can help you get the results that you desire in a timely and cost-effective way.

As a business owner, worries about commercial real estate can consume your thoughts and distract you from what you’d rather be doing: tending to daily operations. Our attorneys work tirelessly to take the hassle out of buying, selling or leasing commercial property, and we are committed to anticipating and resolving problems before they cost you unnecessary time or money.

Broward County and surrounding areas have long appealed to real estate investors, but the market has gone through some major fluctuations and difficulties in recent years. We can provide the advice and guidance you need to make smart investment decisions and to protect your financial interests in all transactions.

Recognition From Other Members Of The Real Estate Industry

The Firm is an authorized agent for Old Republic National Title Insurance Company which is one of the nation’s highest rated title insurance underwriters. The Firm received the President’s Circle Award from Attorney’s Title Insurance Fund, Inc., recognizing the top 100 agents out of membership in excess of 4,600 members in 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018.

Due to recent changes in Federal law, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has made sweeping changes affecting the mortgage lending industry. In its reaction to changes, the lending community engaged an independent risk management firm to vet settlement service providers and weed out dishonest and disreputable companies. We are pleased that MacLean and Ema, P.A., was fully vetted and has been approved by the lending industry’s only independent, comprehensive risk evaluation and ongoing monitoring program to continue to provide the quality closing and settlement services to which our clients have become accustomed, services with an eye towards not only efficiency, but to consumer protection and security.
