     Many people have heard of the probate and estate settlement process, but wonder what it is and what the probate process entails. To put it simply, probate is the process the probate court uses to make sure the deceased person’s creditors are paid through estate settlement and that anything left goes to the deceased’s beneficiaries.

     Unfortunately, the probate and estate settlement process can be anything but simple, depending on the size and nature of the assets to be administered, the number of parties involved in the probate and estate settlement process, how well those parties get along, and many other factors. Complex probate and estate settlements are made all the worse by the fact that the family is in a state of mourning and under a great deal of stress. The last thing most families want to deal with at a time like this is the probate court system.

     Using a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (CPRES) can be beneficial for individuals who are dealing with the probate process and need assistance in selling a property. A CPRES can provide valuable expertise, guidance, and support throughout the process, helping to ensure a successful sale and a smooth transition.


      •     Expertise in Probate Sales: A CPRES has specialized knowledge and experience in dealing with probate properties and the legal and financial aspects of probate sales. They can guide you through the process and help ensure a smooth and successful sale.

      •   Understanding of Estate Planning: A CPRES has a deep understanding of estate planning and can provide valuable advice on how to handle the sale of a property as part of an estate plan.

      •   Access to a Network of Professionals: A CPRES has access to a network of professionals, including attorneys, accountants, and other real estate agents, who can provide additional support and expertise throughout the probate process.

      •   Marketing Expertise: A CPRES has the marketing expertise to effectively promote and sell a probate property, which can be especially important in a competitive real estate market.

      •   Neutral Third-Party: A CPRES can act as a neutral third-party in the probate process, helping to minimize conflicts and ensure that all parties involved are treated fairly.

      •   Time and Cost Savings: By working with a CPRES, you can save time and money by avoiding common mistakes and pitfalls that can occur during the probate process.


     I can offer assistance to people who find themselves in the probate process and don’t know where to turn.  I work with professionals that can provide you with legal consultation, financial consultation, assist in asset inventories, right-sizing and/or auctions, and I, being certified in probate, am dedicated to help you through all aspects of the probate process.
