Mediation requires not only the ability to understand the fine details of the real estate contract
but the ability to ask the right questions to get to the true nature of the dispute. I have a
background in contract law which is an important aspect in every Mediation, however, there
is a greater problem that brings the parties to Mediation – a breakdown in communication.
My mission is to help the parties come to an agreeable resolution so they can move beyond
the conflict. I am here to help.
