The loss of a family member is a hard thing to experience in any circumstance, but dealing with the hassles of wills and estates makes the grieving even worse. Having a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (CPRES) by your side will help alleviate some of the difficulty during this unpleasant time.
Throughout Northern California, probate filings in the local courts appear to be endless. Probate is a complicated process that can carry significant consequences. Executors and Administrators are required to have the knowledgeable resources available to assist in the facilitation of the marketing and sale of the real estate. And the courts want to ensure the transaction is handled efficiently and with integrity.
Being named the executor of a family member’s estate can be overwhelming: At a time when you’re grieving, you’re called on to handle a host of unfamiliar administrative duties.
A Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (CPRES) has been specially trained by US Probates Services on the process of selling real estate through the probate process. Probate is a court-regulated and often complicated series of steps that must be carefully monitored and managed. Legal deadlines must be adhered to throughout the marketing, negotiation and escrow periods. This is why a REALTOR with the prestigious CPRES designation is in such high demand.
A CPRES REALTOR understands the unique complications, the time-sensitive process, and adheres to the best practices necessary to navigate the potentially complicated transactions to completion and help the estate realize a win-win-win transaction.
I make a commitment to walk every probate Executor and Administrator through the process and help you understand the decisions you face as an Executor or Administrator of a Probate Estate. The first step is a free consultation and evaluation of the property along with any external market.
The second step in order for the seller to get the greatest return on investment is to recommend repairs that are needed prior to the sale and improve a higher return on the sale of the property. As a Realtor, I also have a vast list of affiliated qualified vendors to perform these tasks to completion in a timely manner. The goal is to achieve the highest of returns with great compassion and understanding as a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (C.P.R.E.S.) – Serving Northern California.

It doesn’t have to be a bumpy ride through this process if you’re fully prepared. Selling an estate also differs slightly then selling a regular home. I’ll take you through that.
