A Deal in a Day. From your preparations before your first meeting with the seller to your record retention duties following closing, walk through every phase of a transaction with the Washington REALTORS Legal Hotline Lawyer. Class discussion will highlight requirements of state and federal law as well as industry norms and best practices intended to keep you out of trouble with buyers, sellers and other brokers. How can you win listings by impressing the seller with your knowledge of forms and industry practices during your listing presentation? How do you deal with divorcing sellers? What should listing brokers look for in every offer? What should buyer brokers include with every offer? What is the best way to negotiate repairs? Should you meet the appraiser at the property? Should you attend closing? What should you do after closing when you receive that ever-dreaded phone call? Class discussion will be focused through consideration of real-life situations and class members will be encouraged to ask questions and apply discussion to their own experiences and transactions.

Annie Fitzsimmons

Annie Fitzsimmons is a lawyer whose entire post-adolescent life has focused on the Washington real estate market place in one form or another. When she was 11 years old, her parents opened a real estate company and she worked in the office first as the cleaning crew, later as a receptionist, bookkeeper and typist and ultimately as a real estate licensee. At age 23, she school at the University of Washington and upon graduating, began her legal career with the Tacoma law firm of Gordon, Thomas, Honeywell, Malanca, Peterson & Daheim. She was one of the firm’s primary residential real property lawyers until 2001 when she left to open her own office and since has served as Washington Realtors Legal Hotline Attorney as well as providing a variety of other legal services for WR. She served on the task force that drafted the Agency Law from 1994 to 1996 and the task force that worked in 2004 and 2005 considering revisions to the Licensing Law, RCW 18.85. She has sued and defended real property owners, buyers, sellers and brokers across the state but has recently made it her personal priority to ensure that no Washington REALTOR® is ever sued again for something they could have avoided. Believing that education is the best way to achieve this goal, she is here today. So, take advantage of her experience and ask questions that are important to you. Raise your hand and focus discussion on issues that are challenging you today.
