Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing real estate in Los Angeles County, you'll get 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 a reasonable range so you're not startled when you get to closing time. I'll be glad to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem questionable.
