Working with a real estate lawyer is a valuable move to make, whether you are buying, selling, refinancing, purchasing an investment property, or moving forward with any type of transaction. A real estate lawyer can ultimately make all phases of your transaction go smoothly, so if you are buying or selling real estate in the near future, here are a few things you should know:
1. Don't wait—Your real estate lawyer should be involved from the very start-- not just when you have a problem. Your attorney can help you avoid expensive mistakes while buying a home or property and is a valuable resource to use at all stages of the transaction.
2. Remember attorneys and real estate agents can do different things—Your attorney is going to act like a referee, making sure everything involved with your transaction abides by the law. If you need help with a certain legal issue or advice, your attorney can provide guidance your agent may not be able to.
3. Sellers can benefit, too—Most people think real estate lawyers only help buyers. At the same time, an attorney can help sellers with many things during the selling process.
4. Attorneys do a lot of behind-the-scenes work—Your attorney may come back to you before a transaction and say everything looks fine. If this is the case, don't forget that a lot of work went into making sure you have peace of mind about your upcoming purchase or sale.

Harry was extremely helpful. He answered questions I had regarding foreclosure and possible outcomes without taking me on as a client. His patience was outstanding and all my questions were answered in a very timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone needing real estate guidance and use him in the future for help with my next home purchase.
We left our first lawyer and went over to Harry close to our closing date. Our first lawyer didn't want to answer a few basic questions we had, and then he wanted to charge extra for answering the questions. Harry accomodated us in the short space of time we had left, answering all our questions, clearly and professionally. He also carried out all our additional requests. I would highly recommend Harry to anyone looking for a property lawyer.
Harry Marsh Law helped us close on our home on time & with ease. He is extremely knowledgeable & was willing to share his expertise to answer all of our questions! Would highly recommend!
Harry is the most wonderful attorney with whom we work. He is extremely knowledgeable, and as investors, he knows exactly how to handle all of our questions and closings, and we never have any problems when he is handling our affairs. 5 stars for sure!!
