Real Estate Attorney And
Real Estate Broker

There are many real estate tools. This one is the best.

I am both a real estate broker and a real estate attorney. That can be a real advantage to you. If you hire me as your seller’s agent or your buyer’s agent, I will also serve as your legal counsel on matters pertaining to your transaction, from beginning to end. I will do that for no extra charge. That will give you peace of mind and save you money.


James Robert Deal - Broker and Attorney

From my grandfather Albert I inherited my motto, which is “a good deal more for a good deal less”. I charge less and deliver more.


In many real estate transactions, legal issues arise. Buyer or seller or both are well advised to retain an attorney in addition to their broker. Sometimes you don’t realize you need an attorney until you are already “in pretty deep”. If you buy or sell through me, I will be there from the beginning to the end. And I will not bill you by the hour. People hate being billed by the hour, and I hate keeping track of my billable hours.


All real estate forms include advice to “seek independent counsel”. But how do you go about finding an attorney experienced in transactional law? If I am your agent, you need look no further.


Since 1980 I have worked as an attorney structuring and closing real estate transactions of all different kinds, including residential and commercial transactions, land deals, business opportunity transactions, seller-financed transactions, and lease-option deals. 


As an attorney I have more tools available to put deals together. Real estate agents are only authorized to fill out forms approved by the multiple listing agency. When there are complexities, they must advise you to bring in an attorney. This can sometimes slow transactions down. The attorney may not understand what is going on. 


I ran an escrow department in my law office for twenty years. I ran Deal Mortgage Corporation for four years. I am still a licensed mortgage loan officer, although my license is inactive. I still do mortgages but only commercial mortgages.


I have a varied background in real estate law and mortgage law, and so I can be a lot of help in figuring out how to put deals together and get them closed.


If I am an attorney, why am I working as a broker? First, it is a lot easier. Second, it pays better. Third, I do not have to track my time by the hour and send out bills which give people heart attacks. Fourth, it is more fun.


Feel free to call me if you think I might be able to help. I do not charge for initial telephone inquiries.




If you are a broker and are involved in listing or selling a property where there are legal issues, bring me into the deal as a co-broker, and I will take care of all drafting and legal advice. Either the seller can pay my reasonable percentage, or the brokers can. Either way, I do not get paid unless there is a successful closing.
