kathleen daniels: Santa Clara County Probate Homes | Myths vs Reality - 01/31/21 11:41 AM

 
Myths About Santa Clara County Probate Homes
Kathleen Daniels, Broker-Owner of Need Probate Help and Probate Real Estate Services was licensed in January 2003. Her first Santa Clara County probate listing was in April 2005. Throughout the years she has listed fire damaged and tear down homes.

Kathleen Daniels, Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist knows the best place for a personal representative to start is hiring a local attorney well versed in probate. We live in a highly specialized world. A generalist may cause delays in the probate process.

The attorney needed a real estate agent with knowledge and experience with … (0 comments)

kathleen daniels: The Power of Trusted Referrals | Who Do You Trust With Your Wallet? - 11/28/20 03:07 PM
Among the many honors, this Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist receives, is a referral from an attorney.  In this case, the referral came from a real estate attorney, not an estate planning or probate attorney which is where Kathleen Daniels receives most probate real estate and trust property referrals.  
 
A past client of the real estate attorney was so confused by all the information real estate agents were telling them their head was spinning.  Trusting the real estate attorney who helped them in the past, they scheduled an appointment with the attorney to get a sanity check.

The Gift of my Mother. No words can truly describe the gift my mother gave me when she left me in control of managing her care.
