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

Buyers: When buying real estate 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 previous experience and is required to be within a reasonable range so you're not shocked when you get to closing time. I'll be willing to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
