Real Estate

More than just buying and selling, we advocate for your vision and help you navigate the entity formation, zoning, planning, permitting process to create vibrant living spaces in harmony with the land, natural resources and the built environment.

Alternative Real Estate Projects

Sustainable Developments, Cooperatives, Eco Villages, these are just a few examples of real estate in the new economy.  All begin with a vision to create a better model than the divide and conquer developments of yesterday.  Common areas, energy efficiency, shared open space, trails, water conservation, guest lodging, and other sustainably vibrant systems are optimized for the greater good, but somehow this all gets lost on planning commissions, intent on current zoning laws and the permitting process status quo.   Advocacy Matters will help you navigate the process and assist you in assembling a team to move your dream from inception to reality.

Residential Investment Properties

Investing in rental properties and becoming a landlord or host for short or long term residential renters is an investment strategy that can be a viable alternative to investing in other volatile markets.  However, the lament I usually hear is that it often turns into more hands-on involvement and headaches than originally envisioned.

As a former landlord and property manager myself, I have first-hand knowledge — earned by much trial and error — of the expertise you’ll need to protect the investment you’ve made in your property.

You can count on Advocacy Matters to listen and understand your unique issues and to draft the short and long term agreements, and to assist in resolving any dispute to ensure that you are successful and supported in your residential investment endeavors.
