Vahn and Lisa are both Certified Probate and Trust Specialists. In general, a Probate occurs when a homeowner dies without a Trust and by default leaves a home to an heir. This means (in many cases) that an estate attorney or representative may need the assistance of a real estate professional to help family members sell the property. Of course, these scenarios can vary widely which is why it’s important to work with an Agent that has a thorough understanding of the Probate and Trust process. As Certified Probate and Trust Specialists, we are well qualified to help you with these types of transactions, and the extensive documentation involved, whether you’re the Buyer or Seller. For more information you can also visit our PROBATE and TRUSTS pages.
