What is Probate Real Estate?

Probate Real Estate is a court-supervised procedure where the assets of a deceased person must go through probate in order to satisfy creditors and distribute the estate to heirs.  Probate can be a very emotional and difficult process, one that you should not have to navigate alone.  Without the right team, many estates are stripped, destroyed, and devastated. Don’t let that happen to you.


Recent Probate Sales in Los Angeles

Needed to be secured, cleaned, and junk hauled. Sold in 2 days. This home was in South Central and had to be monitored regularly to prevent vagrants from entry.

Apartment building in Gardena. The tenants were put up at a local hotel, while the termite work was done. We make sure the tenants are always taken care of.

This was a Trust sale in Lomita. My team re-did all the hardwood floors and painted the entire interior. No upfront charge for this. The work was paid at the close of escrow.

Small home in Lennox that was occupied by one of the heirs to the estate. We helped him get financing so he could buy it and continue to live there.

This L.A.. probate had an out of state Executor. Even though she couldn't be here, we made sure she was kept in loop. The sale went smoothly and sold for the asking price.

This probate was a little difficult. The administrator of the estate was also going through bankruptcy. We had to get approval from the BK courts prior to selling it. We did get approval and the sale went smoothly after that.

This home was in Mar Vista. It needed a lot of cleaning before we could put it on the market. We had to sell 2 cars for the state, too. After cleaning and some heavy marketing, it sold the first week at full price at all cash. Everyone was happy.

Laurel Canyon - 5 bed 3 bath, 3,000+ sq ft home. Was originally built as a hunting lodge. It was sold part of a large estate. The buyer bought this home, the home next door and 5 surrounding vacant lots.

3 bed 2 bath home in Victorville. Didn't need much as far as repairs go. We cleaned it up and did some light painting, installed a new door on the side of the garage. It sold for full price.

We have referred him to several clients and will continue to refer him. His services are invaluable and he comes highly recommended."
