Joel Sellers leads our Real Estate Group. His expertise lies in finding solutions to the many complications which can arise when dealing in real estate. He also acts as trusted advisor and problem solver for both small business and public agencies that seek solutions to complicated legal problems.

When deadlines are approaching and the deal is at risk, our Mac, Mac & Mac Real Estate Group can make the difference between a costly legal lawsuit and a successfully closed transaction. Just ask your realtor about our reputation for results.
