Real Estate Transactions

Creative Vision and Attention to Detail

Successful and profitable real estate transactions don’t happen by accident. Creative vision needs to merge with meticulous attention to detail for a deal to come to fruition without expensive delays or intractable hurdles that can scuttle an otherwise lucrative opportunity.

At McAllister, DeTar, Showalter & Walker, our real estate lawyers provide the experienced guidance and well-crafted documentation that can facilitate the consummation of your real estate transaction, no matter its nature, size, or complexity. We know the Maryland real estate landscape, as it’s our backyard. We also regularly assist investors and lenders on real estate transactions throughout the country. We have been involved in thousands of transactions and have cultivated strong working relationships with the individuals and institutions involved – lenders, brokers, developers, contractors, local governments, and zoning boards – which play crucial roles in a project’s success.

The Skills and Foresight You Need for Success

Large institutional investors, developers, individual buyers and sellers, lenders, and real estate professionals rely on our skills and foresight to shepherd their important commercial, residential or agricultural transactions.

From routine purchase agreements to complicated financing structures, we craft detailed documentation and work collaboratively with all parties to make sure our clients’ interests and investments are protected.  As agents of multiple national title insurers, we regularly provide the seamless transition from negotiations through due diligence to closing, all conducted by the same trusted advisors.

Communication, Clarity, and Completeness in All Real Estate Transactions

Many problems with real estate transactions are avoidable; they arise out of inadequate preparation, inexcusable oversights, or a lack of clarity and detail in the applicable documents. Our clients receive the peace of mind that comes from having knowledgeable, local real estate counsel who will not tolerate such lapses and who will take every step to minimize risks to your investment today and in the future.
