Sellers: As we hammer out your deal, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for lower closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you are buying a home in Palm Beach County, you'll be given a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's past experiences and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not startled when you come to closing time. I'll be glad to look through the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
