Brokerer, law firm relationships are advantageous for two reasons. Firstly, such relationships enable efficient document handling procedures, thus shortening the time clients wait until closing. For instance, when seller's brokers mediate transactions, the broker immediately sends over deal information to us, and we are able to start preparing legal documents. Second, relationships increase communication among involved parties, and reduce the likelihood of issues at the time of closing.
