Real Estate Law

Blalock Walters Real Estate Services Group

We make a difference for our real estate clients by closing deals with a common sense and creative approach to our clients’ transactions. Our real estate group has been a core practice area since our firm’s inception, and today encompasses a wide variety of real estate related matters, including residential and commercial purchase and sale transactions, mortgage financing and re-financing, commercial leasing, loss mitigation assistance, and loan workouts.

Our firm is a qualified title insurance agent of several of the nation’s major title insurance underwriters, and is capable of issuing title insurance policies covering land located anywhere within the State of Florida. We work extensively in the complex commercial area, handling transactions and issuing title insurance for large projects throughout the State.

Our attorneys are particularly knowledgeable with respect to the purchase, sale and financing of shopping centers, apartment buildings, commercial office projects and mobile home parks. We provide services that require the particular knowledge and ability to manage complex projects, including multiple property portfolios. With our experience in handling larger transactions, we can offer expertise in structuring complicated matters in order to minimize transaction-related costs and tax liabilities, including arranging for 1031 tax-deferred exchanges. Regardless of the size or complexity of the transaction, we strive to always provide prompt high quality representation.
