The Law Office of Christine Garner, P.C. is a law firm specializing in residential law, including real estate short sales. Located in Rockford, IL, this firm serves the residents of Loves Park, Machesny Park, Rosco, Belvidere, Byron, and Freeport. They have a satellite office in Lombard, IL, as well. This law office has negotiated over 100 successful short sales and has experience working with all major banks in the United States, including Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, and 5/3.

This law office assists homeowners in negotiating and completing short sales, which are a type of sale used when the sale of a home does not cover the remaining mortgage and payments; it is used as an alternative to foreclosure and can assist homeowners who can no longer afford their home. A short sale has less financial drawbacks than foreclosure and allows the consumer to recover a good credit score faster. The law office employs six non-attorney assistants who have experience with short sales and can guide homeowners through the process as well as work with their bank to ensure that the short sale goes smoothly.

In addition to short sales, The Law Office of Christine Garner can assist consumers with other aspects of residential law, such as foreclosure, landlord/tenant law, real estate disputes, Home Owners Association disputes, and eminent domain. They also help their clients develop wills and trusts, and can assist with other general legal issues, such as bankruptcy and personal injury.

Visit the website for The Law Office of Christine Garner to learn more about short sales, request a packet with information about short sales, and schedule an appointment to discuss residential law or estate planning.
