Three Characteristics to Look for in a Real Estate Attorney

Are you looking to purchase residential real estate? Perhaps you have a child who will be starting school soon, so you want to buy a house near Mary Calcott Elementary School in Norfolk. You have your eye on a great house on Dune Street that has everything you are looking for. However, the whole thing has you a little nervous. After all, real estate purchases are complex and you don’t really know what to expect.

Fortunately, there are attorneys who can assist you through your real estate transaction. Having an experienced real estate attorney by your side through the home buying process will allow you to focus on finding the home of your dreams.

When you are looking to hire a real estate attorney, you should look for three important characteristics:

  • Understanding of the applicable laws – Real estate law is not simple by any means. Your real estate attorney should have solid understanding and in-depth knowledge of real estate law.
  • Experience – Because of the complexity of Virginia real estate law, you want an attorney who has been involved in many real estate transactions and who can handle any sticky situation that comes up.
  • Work ethic – Your real estate attorney should work hard on your behalf. Knowledge and experience are not useful without the ability to put them into practice.


Don’t let your lack of knowledge of real estate law ruin your home buying experience. Contact our office and one of our skilled real estate attorneys can answer your questions and put your mind at ease.
