JAMES ROBERT DEAL
SHORT SALE ATTORNEY – SHORT SALE BROKER

Hello, I am a real estate attorney and a real estate broker. My office is in Lynnwood, Washington, but I work for buyers throughout Washington.

Contact me at 425-771-1110 or 888-999-2022. JRDeal-6-18-15-full-png

I graduated from the University of Washington Law School in 1978. I have written hundreds of purchase and sale agreements. I have handled hundreds of for-sale-by-owner transactions. I have closed hundreds of real estate escrows. I have handled dozens of tax-deferred exchanges. I have successfully handled scores of mortgage modifications and short sales. I have brokered scores of real estate mortgages.

If you are seeking a short sale attorney or short sale broker serving all of Washington, contact James Robert Deal at 425-771-1110.

If you are a short sale seller or a short sale buyer, you ought to have a real estate attorney on board.

A short same may have less impact on your credit score than an outright foreclosure.

If you have significant assets or income, if you own other property, your short sale lender may try to get you to sign a note for all or part of the loss which the lender is incurring. That is a good reason to have an attorney on board. 

If you are seeking a real estate attorney serving Lynnwood Washington, contact James Robert Deal at 425-771-1110.

Sold-Sign-NCI ran an escrow department in my law office for twenty years. I ran Deal Mortgage Corporation for four years. I have a varied background in real estate law, mortgage law, escrow law, business opportunity sales, seller-financing, lease-options,wrap-around deeds of trust, tax-deferred exchanges, corporation and LLC setup, wills and trusts, mortgage modification, short sales, and real estate sales, and so I can be a lot of help in figuring out how to put your deal together and get it closed.

Note: In Washington real estate agents are now technically referred to as real estate brokers.

I am a frequent candidate for public office. See http://jamesrobertdeal.org.
