The Law Offices of Bruce E. Bergman is involved in a wide range of Commercial and
Residential Real Estate transactions for our clients.  Our law firm has been providing legal
representation to people in Connecticut since 1970. We understand the local Real Estate market.  
This allows us to provide effective representation to clients who are buying or selling property or
are engaged in other Real Estate situations necessitating legal assistance and guidance, including
foreclosure mediation and representation.

The Real Estate process consists of three phases: the purchase and sale agreement, preparation
for the closing and the closing itself.

We will represent you as either the Buyer or Seller from start to finish. We will assist you in the
contract preparation and negotiation, in the preparation for the closing (the inspections, survey,
title insurance), and at the closing itself.  We have substantial experience representing first-time
home buyers.
