Receive Authority to List: Full / Limited Authority

Initially, the first step of a managing the probate process is to be granted the authority to list. There are two types of Authority that can be assigned to Executors and Administrators in a probate case. Full Authority grants Executors and Administrators the ability to act on behalf of the estate with less supervision. Limited Authority, however, requires much more attention from the court as well as an additional court date for the opportunity of overbids.

Open Escrow

Once your property enters Escrow, we work to ensure the process is smooth and free of encumbrances. We do this by placing buyers through an extensive vetting process to ensure our projected close date and the Estate’s goals are met timely and efficiently. We verify loan approvals, review buyer funds and remove buyer contingencies.

For Administrators & Executors that are granted limited authority, an additional court date is required to provide an opportunity for overbidders. During this time, our team works diligently to advertise the property and its overbid for the opportunity to generate higher offers.
