The goal of the presentation is to teach attendees how to recognize potential red flags that can arise in a residential sales transaction and how to mitigate them. There will be an interactive discussion, case studies, and a checklist handout.
How to Avoid Surprises Before Listing and Selling Real Property
I am very proud to lead and own one of the very few woman-owned residential real estate brokerages in the state of California! As my real estate career has grown over the past 20 years, so has my passion for protecting, caring for, and creating maximum results for my clients.
This brokerage has been built on the dream of entrepreneurship that I have had since I was a young girl. As a tribute to my own family, I created the logo for my company from my mother’s handwriting of my name in a letter she once wrote me. It stands as a constant reminder of what HOME really means – a sanctuary where we feel protected, supported, and appreciated. Exactly what I want each of our clients to feel when working with us.
Susan Ghormley, J.D., CLPF
As a Licensed Professional Fiduciary, I provide private and court appointed fiduciary services in estate and personal management. I work to protect the physical and mental integrity of persons who have no one else to rely on, or whose families live too far away or are unable to assist their family member in need of support. Often I hold and manage all of the assets and resources belonging to elderly, incapacitated or deceased persons, or for families needing an independent third party when struggling over distribution of assets. Services include acting as a trustee for family trusts, special needs trusts, and other trusts; Conservator; Guardian; Agent under Powers of Attorney; and care planning for elderly and physically or mentally disabled persons. These services are provided with caring and respect for the wishes of those served.
