The Most FAQ: Do you do more law or real estate?
I am a lawyer and a real estate agent. I am a lawyer at all times. I am a member of the State Bar of Arizona. When I am working with buyers and sellers, I work under an additional license, a real estate license. The Arizona Constitution, Article 26, Section 1, gives real estate agents a right to “draft or fill out and complete, without charge, any and all instruments incident thereto including, but not limited to, preliminary purchase agreements and earnest money receipts, deeds, mortgages, leases, assignments, releases, contracts for sale of realty, and bills of sale.” This is a limited right to represent others in contract law. As an attorney I am unlimited in that right.
The answer is: I do law 100% of the time. I do a category of estate planning called "death and disability law" and I also practice transactional real estate law. In my real estate practice, I may help buyers and sellers to transfer ownership of a home or office, release a deed, adjust a boundary line, split a lot, or record an easement. I may draft a well agreement, modify a commercial lease, or form an entity for the purpose of buying property. This is all real estate law, and only when I am preparing and negotiating Arizona Association of Realtors’ pre-prepared instruments for property transactions am I acting as a real estate agent. My representation through Berkshire Hathaway is always as an agent. My representation through Zimet Law is always as an attorney. Clients who hire me through Berkshire Hathaway for the purpose of buying and selling real property pay commission on sales, whereas clients who hire me through Zimet Law, pay a flat or hourly fee. Each representation is clearly explained and a signed acknowledgement obtained prior to work commencing.
