James Robert Deal, Attorney at Law
Allow me to introduce myself. I am James Robert Deal, Washington Attorney, WSBA #8103.
I have been doing real estate law, escrow, tax-deferred exchanges, wrap-around and lease-option transactions, foreclosures, and residential mortgage modifications and commercial mortgage workouts since 1980. I am a Certified Foreclosure Specialist, which means I have studied foreclosures and foreclosure prevention, mortgage modification, and short sales. I am also a commercial mortgage loan officer.
I enjoy helping buyers and sellers put together transactions. I especially enjoy working on wrap-around and lease-option transaction. Buyers are having a hard time these days getting financing. Buyers can’t buy, and so sellers can’t sell. Why not have buyers utilize the seller’s financing. The buyer pays a collection account which pays the bank in the seller’s name.
Real Estate: My primary focus real estate transactions. I help brokers structure and close transactions. I do escrow setup, which is working out the details of a transaction and getting it into escrow and getting it closed. I sometimes co-broker with other real estate brokers, receiving a separate commission at closing. People like paying at closing instead of being billed by the hour. I setup for-sale-by-owner FSBO transactions and get them closed. I list properties for sellers. I represent buyers as a buyer broker.
Modification: Many clients hire me to work on their modifications because they want help with all the many legal issues swarming about the modification process. I believe that the modification of mortgages is the practice of law. It is a mistake for mortgage loan officers, real estate agents, and other non-attorneys to be holding themselves out as mortgage modifiers.
If you have a question – about a wrap-around sale or mortgage modification or bankruptcy, send me an e-mail. Try to include all the facts you can think of. If you will do this, I will reply by e-mail or call you. I want to determine whether I might possibly help you. I do not want to take on your case unless there is a reasonable chance I can help you.
I have many other interests. I am a committed opponent of the stupid policy of polluting our drinking water with fluoride. I am the vice-president of Washington Action for Safe Water, which works to develop strategies to end water fluoridation.
I am currently a candidate for the office of Snohomish County Executive.
