Practicing real estate law means a lot more than helping a family buy a house. My real estate practice is centered on the use of real property, which tends to be from more of a commercial or business perspective. My clients include real estate developers and investors as well as businesses, rather than individuals. Even landlords with more than a few properties should be running their investments as a business.
I work closely with other professionals, such as inspectors, surveyors and contractors, to conduct due diligence for purchasers of real estate and with tax professionals in establishing the right kind of entity. Sample projects include oceanfront and riverfront condominiums, commercial and industrial space in Volusia County and Pinellas County, assembly and entitlement of large parcels for mixed-use towers in Downtown Tampa, commercial land leases and entitlements throughout the I-4 Corridor.
