Choosing a real estate agent to help settle the estate is a big responsibility that should be considered carefully. 

When it comes to complex probate, trust, conservatorship and inherited property sales, not all REALTORS® are created equal.

As a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist™, Craig Bacheller has specially trained in selling real estate through the probate process.
Probate is a court-regulated and often complicated series of steps that must be carefully monitored and managed. Legal deadlines are unforgiving, the documentation is very unique, and the court’s oversight must be adhered to throughout the marketing, negotiation, and escrow periods. This is why a REALTOR® with the prestigious CPRES designation is in such high demand.


In addition to being trained in the intricate details of probate sales, Craig holds the coveted GRI designation.
The Graduate, REALTOR® Institute symbol is the mark of a real estate professional who has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services by securing a strong educational foundation.
As the industry continues to evolve and change, today’s real estate professionals need more than just motivation and initiative to succeed. They need a solid foundation, as well as in-depth training in legal and regulatory issues, technology, professional standards and the sales process. Thanks to the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation—awarded by NAR—real estate professionals have access to all of this.





Don't go it alone.

The process of selling your loved one’s home is likely going to be emotionally challenging, from the sorting of the personal belongings to the finalization of the sale at the closing table. By surrounding yourself with professionals who are empathetic and helpful, this process can be easier.
In over 35 years of Pastoral ministry, Dr. Craig Bacheller has worked with families organizing and designing services that are both elegant and responsive to the desires of those left behind.
Everyone takes their time to deal with the passing of a loved one. When the time comes to liquidate the real estate portion of the estate, you need to take the appropriate steps to learn the market, educate yourself and have an empathetic REALTOR® that can save you time, money and headaches during the transaction. A real estate professional that is free from the emotional ties that can complicate decision-making.

The longer the home sits on the market, the bigger the discount in order to sell. The faster you reach all potential buyers, the more money you can get from selling your home.

If the home is in very poor shape, it’s sometimes best to sell it to one of our investor clients.

We have a number of investors that can purchase the estate home regardless of its condition. If you choose to sell the property “AS IS”, the investor pays all closing costs including the real estate commission.
This option is best exercised when the estate home requires significant repairs and/or when the estate is struggling financially and needs immediate liquidity to stay afloat.
