Marsha Keller Earns Real Estate Collaboration Specialist in Divorce Designation

A Divorce Real Estate Specialist can provide crucial support during the divorce process.

Marsha Keller is a licensed real estate broker now certified as a Real Estate Collaboration Specialist in Divorce. This designation was created based on 15 years of multi-state legal research by J.D. Harvard Law School alumnus, Professor Kelly Murray, J.D., and real estate professional Wendy Waselle, to protect consumers preparing for or undergoing divorce mediation. 

There are many facets to this designation, but the overarching goal of this training is to help real estate agents and related professionals understand how the courts handle family real estate disputes that often accompany divorce, death, tax and bankruptcy proceedings.

A divorce, in particular, can bring about numerous complex real estate issues that can have long term effects on a person’s financial future. Challenges such as property’s fair market value, responsibility for maintenance and repair expenses, loan payments, lien holders, and more often arise. Court imposed decisions regarding property division are part of a permanent and binding contract, so it’s crucial to understand the nuances of how each of these issues can impact you personally and financially.

As a real estate broker with more than 10 years of real estate experience with the Lisa Barton Team, Marsha understands the local market and the legal framework governing divorce proceedings. For example, in a divorce where property is involved, Marsha can provide you with a copy of your current property value, arrange a home inspection, assist with new home insurance, provide title evidence, and arrange a marital balance sheet, among other needed documents. Marsha and the team have a vast network of associated professionals, such as loan officers, title companies, insurance brokers, and the like to help you understand what is involved as well as help protect your financial future. Access to these professional resources can be a valuable asset, saving you time and hassle, during this complex process.

Whether you are going through a contested or uncontested divorce, having a licensed real estate broker who is certified to help divorce attorneys can make all the difference. Marsha can provide the insight, knowledge, and expertise to ensure your property division (or other real estate related matter) is fair, equitable, and aligned with your goals and objectives.

If you are considering a divorce and need assistance, or have already begun divorce proceedings, please don't hesitate to contact Marsha. She is dedicated to providing a compassionate and personalized experience to help you navigate this challenging time.
