SELLING REAL ESTATE
We built our reputation representing buyers and sellers in real estate transactions.
Over twenty years ago, Attorney Jason Greller became the first attorney in Madison to market a flat fee service for sellers. Over the years we refined the service to fully address the needs of sellers in real estate transactions.
Technology changed the way we work but our practice philosophy remains the same. We take the time to fully explain the risks and benefits and advise you of your legal rights and obligations. Together, we help you make educated decisions and this allows you to be confident and comfortable in your transaction.
Don't make the mistake of working with a less experienced and less qualified real estate agent or attorney. Your real estate represents one of the biggest investments you make in your life. Protect your investment by having Jason Greller on your side.

OUR FLAT FEE SERVICE FOR SELLERS
Our all inclusive flat fee for sellers sets the benchmark for service, expertise and value in residential real estate representation and puts one of Wisconsin's most experienced real estate attorneys in your corner. Essentially, we will hold your hand from start to finish.
You should be aware that real estate agents are prohibited from providing legal advice or opinions. Only a real estate attorney is qualified to provide many services and opinions that should be offered to every seller. Services listed below that appear in boldface can only be provided by an attorney.
Our flat fee includes:
Outlining the real estate transaction process.
If you are also working with a listing agent (MLS listings) we will review your listing agreement to protect you.
Reviewing offer to purchase, drafting counter offers and providing legal advice regarding the terms of the offer as we work through the process.
Discussing the closing costs relating to the sale of your property.
Providing copies of all documents and useful transactions timelines
Contacting you with periodic updates.
Working directly with the lender to make sure that buyer's financing is on track.
Working with you through the inspection contingency and providing you with legal opinions on your rights including identifying which property conditions meet the legal definition of defects.
Working with your through any financing and appraisal contingencies.
Drafting and reviewing amendments and notices and providing you with legal opinions relating to the terms of the documents.
Ordering and confirming the title insurance order.
Responding to and assisting in curing any title objections identified by your buyer.
Ensuring that the requirements for the issuance of the title policy are met.
Scheduling the closing
Drafting of the Deed and Transfer Return. This service alone saves you over $100 at closing lowering the net cost of our service by $100.
Reviewing the settlement statement and making sure that it reflects the terms of the offer.
Ensuring that tax prorations or credits in the Offer are accurate
Attending the closing and representing you with legal advice and counsel at the closing table.
Discussing whether your transaction is exempt from capital gains and reporting requirements.
In addition to the above items, we will also work with you to answer all your questions during the course of the transaction.
What happens if the transaction with a buyer reaches a dead end? I will work with you to sell the property with as many buyers as you want to bring to the table within one year of our start date, all for the same fee. In other words, if you decide you want out of a deal or if a buyer exercises a valid contingency, you do not have to worry about additional legal fees with the next buyer. Other attorneys may charge you a fee for a set number of hours and if you exceed that number of hours they will tack on additional charges at their hourly rate. There are no hourly limits to my flat fee and we consider our service to be the most all inclusive fee available in this market.
No flat fee offered at any price is worth anything unless accompanied by the highest commitment to service. We encourage you to look at our online reviews to see for yourself how our clients measure our service in comparison to our fees. You will find that our combination of superior service and quality representation makes our clients extremely satisfied.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss your transaction.

During the past 20+ years I've represented buyers and sellers in thousands of real estate transactions. Quality representation typically saves you the entire cost of that representation and usually it saves you much more. Most consumers rarely "save" money by working with less experienced counsel or agents. I invite you to put my experience and expertise to work for you.
