It’s a big honor for us to be nominated and especially cool since it comes on the heels of an awesome article they about us last April. You have to be a dues-paying member to read the whole article so we’ll sum it up for you. The reporter looked all across the company to see if anybody else had a business model that combined the traditional strengths of a top notch real estate brokerage with the practical advice and counsel of a real estate law firm all for a low flat fee. Sure enough, we’re the first and only ones to do it and that, my friends, is the definition of innovation!
This nomination is right in line with our mission statement which makes it all the more satisfying. WaLaw Realty – Changing the way people buy and sell real estate!
