Probate. We Make It Simple!
Probate Real Estate Services & Sales – The PRESS Team
By specializing in the unique area of probate real estate and working as a team we provide expertise, energy and efficiency to our probate clients that they can’t get anywhere else. We know the probate process from start to finish and that sets us apart from 95% of real estate agents and the companies they work for.
The national average to become a licensed real estate agent is only thirteen (13) hours of training! Most agents are part-time and based on industry studies sell less than five (5) properties per year! You can see by those numbers that most agents don’t have very much experience in “typical” real estate sales, let alone probate sales. Added to their lack of experience, is the fact that most agents work alone, with no administrative staff or other support.
These facts don’t build very much confidence in the average agent. Yet, these agents expect personal representatives to trust them with the biggest asset they may ever have to manage! Why take the risk?
Probate Real Estate Services & Sales, LLC (PRESS) is a different “brand” of real estate brokerage: specialized, expert, and committed. That difference can be summed up by four qualities.

Our team approach means that we can be readily responsive to the needs of our clients and, at the same time, meet the constant demands of the marketplace – showing property, counseling potential buyers and their agents, managing disclosures and documentation, trouble-shooting, handling the requirements of the Probate Court, and aggressively marketing properties for maximum benefit to the estate or trust.
In our probate, trust and conservatorship transactions, we deal directly with attorneys, paralegals, fiduciaries, conservators and other professionals. We recognize that our clients don’t have time to waste, so we don’t waste their time: we focus on communication, accuracy and results.
