Do not settle for a Realtor who does not understand the legal and financial implications of every document in a real estate transaction.

Purchases & Sales

Our firm handles all types of residential real estate purchases and sales. In a typical real estate sale transaction, our clients receive a complete explanation of every real estate document pertaining to the transaction, especially the Transfer Disclosure Statement (TDS) and the Seller Property Questionnaire (SPQ). During the escrow process, our clients receive expert consulting on how to legally and responsibly complete all disclosures and related documents to minimize the chance of lawsuits. Our clients also benefit from our broker’s experience as a real estate attorney, making the closing of any transaction consistent and predictable.

For representation on purchase transactions, each phase of the escrow process is thoroughly explained, allowing for minimal uncertainty. It is customary for our clients to engage in our representation for a home or investment purcahse at no cost to the buyer.

Leasing & Management

Safa Real Estate offers leasing services for all types of residential property on either a one-time or recurring basis. Our legal experience in tenant selection, local compliance, lease negotiations, and evictions set our firm apart from other brokerages.

We understand that at the core of every investment property is a positive landlord-tenant relationship and efficient property management. Our experienced real estate professionals use a variety of online and tangible marketing platforms in order to attract the most qualified tenants to achieve those results. Additionally, our managing broker, a real estate lawyer, will ensure that all leasing procedures comply with state and federal fair housing laws.

Included with our leasing services is advice on proper formation of a tenancy and lease-end procedures. We consistently consult the California Civil Code when dealing with tenants both upon move-in and move-out. We always take photos and videos to document property conditions as well as use m0ve-in checklist forms to minimize disagreements between the landlord and tenant.

Whether you are a buyer or a seller, it is always a good idea to obtain a second opinion on a contract before issues arise.
