How Can We Help?

Your First Purchase

There's nothing more exciting than purchasing your first home and the prospect of making it truly your own. But like any new experience, excitement can turn into worry if you are overwhelmed by documents, deadlines and unknowns.

Knowing this, Guertin Lawyers take a personal approach to your first home purchase. Throughout the process, you can contact us at any time – and as often as you need – to have your questions answered. And, you can be certain that one of our lawyers directly handles your deal.

We also offer you these benefits to help make your first home purchase experience a positive one:

  • No-surprise pricing . You'll know what the legal fees will cost you up-front. See Our Prices for more detail.
  • No-charge conversations . We won't charge you for each phone call or meeting you have with us – it's all part of the service in our no-surprise pricing. Our door is open to you throughout the purchase process.
  • Information and education . The first home you purchase likely won't be the last that you purchase. That's why we provide you with the information you need to become familiar with this important experience. In fact, we've collected much of the information you'll need in the Tools & Information section of this website.
  • Exceptional client services. With a lawyer, mortgage finance consultant, and full staff trained in all aspects of real estate transactions, your questions will be answered and your needs addressed quickly and accurately.
