Real Estate

With two offices, one downtown Toronto, the other in Richmond Hill, we are conveniently located to act as your real estate lawyer in the GTA. We appreciate that buying a home is one of the biggest purchases that you will make. This is why we personally take the time to explain the home buying process.

We promise, up front pricing – nothing hidden, no surprises later. Sometimes costs quoted by lawyers do not include the cost of all disbursements, or explain the reason for the charges. We promise reasonable, upfront rates for your real estate closing.
