The Closing

Cohen yardA real estate closing has been defined as “the process of executing legally binding documents most commonly associated with the purchase of real estate and the borrowing of money to assist in the purchase.”

As with most things in life, the reality goes far beyond the textbook definition.

The closing is the culmination of days and weeks of work and preparation involving many players – sellers, buyers, Realtors, lenders, inspectors, surveyors, mortgage originators, title examiners, closing agents, lawyers, paralegals, and so on.  Layer in the fact that the purchase of a home is often the largest financial transaction in which a person is involved, it is easy to understand why the process can, if not handled correctly, result in frayed nerves, confusion, and unconcealed emotion.

It is fair to say, then, that buying or selling real estate isn’t as simple as signing a contract and showing up with a check.

My team’s job is to ensure that your transaction is managed with a firm, competent hand, so that its completion becomes a pleasant formality.  Just like a stay at the loveliest hotel, or a meal at your favorite fine restaurant, our closings are intentionally orchestrated to take the stress out of the equation, while deftly managing competing interests with a focus on delivering your intended outcome.
