I also provide Land Planning Services to my clients free of charge as part of my Value Added Service as a Real Estate Broker. Like any other Broker, I get paid by commission, and in addition I do not charge extra for these Planning Consulting Services:
Consulting Services: I council and advise my clients in examining the highest and best use for the property, whether selling or buying.
Site Analysis (Preliminary): I provide a preliminary site analysis looking at physical and environmental characteristics that affect the property. This includes property assessment information, zoning, soils, wetlands, topography, etc.
Rezoning Services: If a rezoning is required, I will, if requested, consult and coordinate the rezoning effort. If it is a straight forward rezoning, I may handle the rezoning all the way through the process. If it a more complicated matter, I will consult throughout the process in the event a lawyer is required to present the rezoning at public hearing. I do not provide legal, surveying or engineering services, but will coordinate these services on behalf of my clients.
Minor Subdivision Services: In the event where my client wants to create a minor subdivision (no streets) and the local jurisdiction allows, I will coordinate the process to completion. I will provide a sketch plan and preliminary site analysis. If approved by the local authority, I’ll coordinate the surveyor’s submission, etc.
Meetings: Meetings required in relation to clients property may include pre-application meetings, staff meetings, planning commission and council meetings, etc.
Public Hearings: If an action is required by the local authority, I will represent my client and in most cases will handle the public hearing and all related activities. If a lawyer is required to present the application at public hearing, I’ll support and coordinate with the attorney on behalf of my client.
Building Permits: I’ll pick up and deliver permits on behalf of my clients.
