Hello everyone, I am Kelly Cook with the Kelly Cook Real Estate Group, your short sale and real estate expert in Arizona. You can find us on the internet at www.KellyCookHomes.com. We’re part of the Keller Williams Real Estate Network, the second largest real estate broker in the entire country. We specialize in helping Arizona homeowners avoid foreclosure through the means of a short sale. We also provide other assistance and services, such as probate, which is what we are going to talk about today.

Probate is one of those topics that most people don’t get around to talking about mainly because it has to do with death and people tend to avoid it. Probate is a very important process because when you die, your estate will go through probate whether it’s through the courts or through your will. Basically, it is a set of terms to adhere to when someone passes away to make sure that their estate is transitioned to the correct parties. With that being said, most people have real estate as part of their estate. At Kelly Cook Homes, we are certified probate real estate brokers with the county and would love to assist you if you have a situation where probate is necessary. When the estate judge and the courts go through everything and assign a person to sell off real estate assets, they do select a licensed realtor that has been approved by the county. We are that real estate group that has handled probate in the past and would like to help anyone that is in need of help with their probate situation.
