Residential Real Estate Transactions Throughout Massachusetts*

Buyers: Not having representation to handle the biggest purchase of your life could end up being your biggest mistake.  Don't risk your deposit by signing the standard form contract provided by your real estate agent.  Let us handle your transaction from drafting the offer thru attending the closing.  We charge buyers a flat fee for representation.

Sellers: Allow us to negotiate the purchase and sale agreement, resolve title issues, draft the deed, and attend the closing.  Signing a standard form purchase and sale agreement is not only a bad idea, but it could leave you vulnerable down the road. 

Lenders: We routinely represent lenders, large and small, in real estate closings. 


Landlord and Tenant Law


Evictions: Don't go through the eviction process alone.  Start the process with a professional and save yourself months of what might end up being unrecoverable rents.  We often charge an affordable, flat fee to properly terminate the tenancy and a reasonable hourly fee should court action be necessary.

Leases: Get started on the right foot with documentation that will protect your investment and establish the rental terms in clear, concise language.  Residential leases can be tailored to fit your property and used over and over again providing you with exceptional value.  Commercial leases are also available and can be customized to fit the needs of your business. 

Misc.: We regularly handle matters involving nonpayment of rent, security deposit disputes, last month's rent disputes, and terminations of tenancy due to illegal activities.  We also provide landlord consultation to individuals interested in investing in rental properties for the first time or those wanting to streamline and better manage existing rentals.

Wills and Trusts

Ensure that your property passes to who you want.  You worked hard to build your estate.  Don't let it get it squandered through the probate process, estate taxes and costly attorney's fees.  A comprehensive estate plan can protect your loved ones by sheltering your assets from estate taxes and giving you peace of mind.

Typical estate plans include wills, trusts, health care proxies, advanced directives, powers of attorney and homesteads.

Here's what some of our recent clients had to say:

FROM A SIMULTANEOUS HOME SALE AND HOME PURCHASE:
"When the market was good, I flipped a handful of houses over 5 years. Used a few attorneys here and there.  None of them did the job as well as you.  I always felt I had to be on top of them or basically handle everything myself to make sure things got done.  I didn't feel that way with you.  You did a great job and I appreciate it.  Thanks again." 
Kevin of Lynnfield  FROM A SHORT SALE:
"Thank you very much for your help resolving the real estate matters I've been involved with the past few months.  During this time I have found you to be very clear and concise in all of your communications with me and spot-on in your legal recommendations, advice and representation within the courts.  In my dealings with Professional Services firms and the individuals that comprise those firms, I place the highest value on clarity of communication.  Despite the fact that I have no legal background, I was fully able to understand everything you told me.  I also want to say that the value you provided me, given the scope of the services that I required and you delivered is exceptionally good.  Thank you."  Anthony of Wakefield

FROM A HOME PURCHASE BY A FIRST TIME HOMEBUYER:
"We were extremely excited when we made an offer on our first home this winter; immediately afterward, however, reality set in when the pressure of deadlines and the need to understand the complex wording within the offer to purchase and the subsequent contract and sales agreement quickly made us realize the need to hire a lawyer with expertise in realty law.  After searching the internet and viewing past experiences of other home buyers in need, we found and chose to have Jennifer DiCarlo represent our real estate purchase.  She is very knowledgeable and at all times made it evident that she was working hard to protect our interests in the purchase through constant communication, personal trips to our home to have documents signed, and by spending many long nights on the phone with the seller and bank's attorney to ensure that our home purchase went as planned.  We are now enjoying life in our first home, and we have Jennifer to thank 100%."  Joshua of East Boston

FROM A CONSULTATION WITH A FIRST TIME HOMEBUYER:
"We were very pleased with the response time, professionalism, the accuracy of the information and all the great advice from Jennifer. She gave us so much information that we'll be able to use in the future if needed. I would recommend her services to anyone whether you're planning on buying a house and need financial guidance or for any other issues."  Daphney of Waltham
