Areas of Practice

For Lenders & Realtors

We title search in house 

We control when title work is done. We can meet and will often beat your deadlines. Need to close in a week? We can typically accommodate that.

For purchases, we do not wait on due diligence to pass before we run our search, as many other offices do, because we are not worried about having to pay a Freelancer, in the event the contract terminates.

  • Realtors, why wait on an attorney who freelances title work to discover title problems, the need for a survey, etc, after due diligence period?
  • Lenders, why wait on an attorney who freelances title work to get you a title insurance commitment after the due diligence period?
  • What’s more is that freelanced title searches can be inaccurate and attorneys often miss or disregard issues when reviewing a freelanced search.
  • Your lender will be happier, your client will be happier, and you’ll be happier using attorneys that control this, in house.

We E-record

Realtors, why wait longer for your check?

Many offices around here make “runs” to the register of deeds once or twice a day. We record digitally, in real time. Get your clients paid faster. Get your clients in their homes faster. Get your commission faster. You may not realize how much time is wasted on these items using an office that does not E-record.

Lenders, get your loans recorded and disbursed faster!

We can close in any county in North Carolina

Our E-recording ability, remote access to the AOC for each county, and statewide online access allow us to help you close your loans for any property in North Carolina.

Closing date and time flexibility

With multiple attorneys on staff and by incorporating a team approach, we are able to schedule closings on any date you wish and, often, any time you wish.

Communication (The #1 complaint about Real Estate attorneys)

Our protocol is to have all calls and emails, if unable to answer them in real time, returned within FOUR business hours. 

We have had a wonderful response from the professionals we work with, since instituting this protocol.

Se Habla Espanol

We can facilitate communication and closings in Spanish, should the client prefer. At the time we posted this, we are the only firm in WNC that offers this, from what we’re told by industry professionals.

Direct line to Managing Attorney

Ever want to make a suggestion or make a request to the owner of the law firm and not be able to get them to respond?

That is not the case here. We want to be the best and will only get there with your suggestions for improvement. Zeno will respond and fix whatever needs fixing.

Giving Back

Our Managing attorney sits on the REACH (Real Estate Agents Combatting Homelessness) Board, a division of Homeward Bound of WNC.

Ask us how you can get involved!

We also donate and volunteer with many other local charities.

If this is something you value, we hope you’ll help support these by working with us.

Diversity

If you value a company that hires and practices with diversity in mind, that’s us. We feel that you will not find a more diverse group of professionals at any other real estate firm in western North Carolina.

The talents and perspectives that our staff can provide you is a rare thing to find nationwide, much less in the area.

For Clients

Communication (The #1 complaint about Real Estate attorneys, and perhaps attorneys in general)

Our protocol is to have all calls and emails, if unable to answer them in real time, returned within FOUR business hours. 

We have had a wonderful response from the clients we work with, since instituting this protocol.

While our staff is wonderful and can answer or help you with most of your questions/concerns, at our office, you have a direct line to the managing attorney, should you ever feel the need or desire to speak with him.
