live probate seminar california

March 29th at The Southland Regional Association of Realtors

Paul Horn is perhaps the only probate attorney and CPA in Southern California who consistently teaches live seminars to real estate professionals, including REALTORS and investors. Most of the time, the content-packed 3-hour seminars are free of charge or very low-cost and provide in-depth knowledge about the probate process as well as legal and financial consequences of holding a title. The live training outlines the Probate Process from A to Z from the perspective of a real estate professional. Our goal is to make sure that the attendees leave the seminar confident in their ability to handle a probate real estate transaction from start to finish.

Paul is super knowledgeable and pleasant. He explains things clearly and with a touch of humor that makes the information easy to remember. As real estate professional with 17 years of experience, I can honestly say I've never met anyone with a better understanding of estate planning or probate. He taught me a few things and got me thinking about aspects of my personal estate that I otherwise would never have considered. I highly recommend him to anyone that is thinking of buying or selling or that already owns any type of property.

  • the personal representative's address
  • the personal representatives telephone number (if filed with the court)
  • the personal representative is the person with the court authority to sell the house
  • the type of authority the personal representative has requested (either limited authority or full authority)
  • the applicable hearing date which grants the authority
  • the value of the house and the mortgage on the house
  • the beneficiary or beneficiaries of the estate
  • the date the probate case was filed
  • the name, address, and email of the probate attorney handling the case
  • the probate case number

The leads are all delivered on an Excel spreadsheet on a weekly basis.  The spreadsheet can easily be sorted or used as part of a mail merge process to easily contact of the personal representative.
