WHAT IS A CERTIFIED DIVORCE REAL ESTATE SPECIALIST?

Anyone going through a divorce which involves any real estate needs a professional, not an amateur. Divorce specialists are trained in the legal and tax aspects of the divorce process as it relates to real estate. We have specialized knowledge regarding obscure legal rulings, regulations, and tax implications and how it can affect divorcing couples.
A large part of our training is understanding the emotional nature of property issues in the divorce process. There may be difficulty deciding on such things as a sale price or disagreement on the anticipated equity.. This can be further complicated if the divorce is contentious. We work to educate couples about the financial and legal aspects of the real estate process. Our job is not to take sides, but to focus on the property issues and demonstrating to the divorcing couple that they do have options.
