Sellers: As we get through the details of your sale, not only will I work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also advocate for limited closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: When purchasing a home in Los Angeles County, you'll be given a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's prior experience and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not surprised when you reach the closing table. I'll be glad to go through the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
