Los Angeles Real Estate Mediation Services was formed by practicing California real estate broker/owner John Graff in 2015 after seeing the need for independent, non-attorney mediators with a unique understanding of the complexities involved in real estate transactions.
Our areas of expertise include but are not limited to: contract negotiations, e-brokerages, real estate agency, RESPA, CFPB, disclosures, green building, property valuation, commission disputes, short sales, foreclosures, mortgages, and fair housing laws.
Using an effective, 5-step mediation process, we are often able to resolve disputes amicably between parties in a matter of hours. Our conflict resolution methods settles your dispute while saving you thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in costly litigation or arbitration. “An ounce of mediation is worth a pound of arbitration and a ton of litigation!” — Joseph Grynbaum
