For over 60 years, the residential real estate attorneys at Harrison & Johnston have helped countless friends and neighbors throughout the Shenandoah Valley and Northern Virginia purchase and sell their homes with clarity and confidence.
For most people, buying a house, townhome, or condominium is one of the most significant investments that they will ever make. But it is one that involves much more than money. Purchasing a home is about beginning a new chapter in life, finding a place to raise your family, or enjoy your golden years. When selling a home, the stakes are no less high.
Purchases and acquisitions of real estate come with a host of legal, financial, and practical complexities. How such issues are handled can make the difference between a deal that is a cause for celebration and one that is a source of frustration and disappointment. Given the significance of a residential real estate transaction to buyers and sellers alike, having an experienced real estate attorney on your side is of critical importance.
