Real Estate Closing

As a REALTOR, and now as the Broker/Owner of Active Adults Realty, I take my responsibility to my clients very seriously. Honesty and integrity are qualities I demand of my agents and staff and anyone we associate with in our business dealings. Sometimes I have been disappointed by people with whom we have done a lot of business, but never with Heidi Gilmore.

Heidi is the best Real Estate Attorney in Delaware in my estimation and one of the best people I have come to know since living here. She and her staff are the most thorough that we have worked with. In real estate, the attorney represents the Buyer and is selected by the Buyer. On those occasions when we have had to work with another attorney, we always comment “I guess we will have to do everyone’s job!” When the attorney is Heidi, we know we don’t have to worry. The entire process and settlement will be timely and painless for the Buyer, the REALTORS and everyone involved in the transaction.
