Hornung & Scimone, P.C. was a pleasure to do business with, even under the stressful circumstances of a Short Sale. Communication with David Scimone and Holly Williams was exceptional, they were always available to answer any question I had, and there were many! The Short Sale was smooth and moved quickly. I was granted full debt cancellation, and am now able to move forward, and start fresh financially. I would highly recommend Hornung & Scimone, P.C.

Steve, MA (Short Sale Seller)

As if moving across the country isn’t stressful enough, add to the fact that we had to sell our house via short sale and you have 2 very stressed out people! The Attorney explained the process to us in detail to relieve that stress and went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us get our short sale completed as soon as possible.

Purchase & Sale Agreements (P&S)

The standard Massachusetts Real Estate Purchase & Sale Agreement (P&S) is anything but “standard.” Each real estate transaction is unique and thus, each agreement requires its own review and modifications. With the P&S arguably being the most important document in the buying/selling process, it is imperative that a Massachusetts real estate attorney look it over before you sign on the dotted line.

Looking to best protect all parties’ rights and remedies, and customize the agreement to the particular aspects of your transaction, Hornung & Scimone, P.C. is here to help.
