Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for limited closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you know exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: When buying real estate in Los Angeles County, you'll receive a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's past experiences and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not shocked when you reach the closing appointment. I'll be glad to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
