This report is presented by Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist, Kathleen Daniels, Broker-Owner of NeedProbateHelp which provides probate real estate services



With the addition of a second probate judge, the cases are now starting to move through the court system at better than a snail’s pace.  The State reopening on June 15, 2021, may help as well. We will provide an update following the “The State of the Probate Court” Zoom meeting with both probate judges on Friday, June 18, 2021.

Let us look at a snapshot of the May 2021 data as of June 1, 2021.

  • Five (5) homes for sale
  • Six (6) homes under contract
  • Seven (7) homes sold


The highest price home sold: single-family home in San Jose, 95132. Original List price $1,100,000. Final Sale price $1,510,000.  


The lowest-priced home sold: condominium in San Jose, 95135. List price $530,000. Final sale price $530,000.

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist - Under these current market conditions it takes a lot of patience to be a liason between clients and the court. I hope there is some good news on June 18th! I don't know what is slower than snail mail but it must feel awful when time stands still and there's nothing you can do about it because it's outside of your control. Keeping a "pulse," on probate sales takes a dedicated professional to champion clients through the process. Thank you, Kathleen for being someone clients and the courts can count on when it comes to Probate Court sales.

Thank you Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - I am looking forward to what the two probate judges have to say. I'm not missed any of the Zoom meetings.  We waited over two months for Letters on one case.  That property will finally get listed this Friday.
