Managing the Real Estate Process

Unlike the traditional Real Estate Agents who either don’t know or are just unsure of what to do when they are selling a property in a Probate, Trust, or Conservatorship, Aragone & Associates knows and understands the intricacies of these complex processes. Our CEO/Founder, Paula Aragone, attended 4 years of Law school in Argentina and when she moved to California in 2002 she decided to apply her Legal Background to Real Estate. From there she has built her career in Real Estate with an emphasis on Probates and Trusts. Now 20+ years later and being ranked in the Top 1% of Real Estate Agents Nationwide, Paula has done exactly that. She has skillfully built this Division of Aragone & Associates to not only work with all types of homeowners but also directly with attorneys to help their clients with complex real estate matters.

By understanding the behind-the-scenes legal process for these sometimes complicated and timely property sales, she has created a step-by-step plan to help sellers navigate these legal processes. This is why we have been able to successfully build a team that is just as knowledgeable and has the ability to assist any sellers with their Real Estate needs. Our proven track record has resulted in 800+ successfully closed transactions and over $650 million in total sales volume with only more to come. We look forward to being a resource for you every step of the way and helping with any of your real estate needs!

Managing the probate process

Preparation Is Our Strength

There are two types of authority that can be assigned to Executors and Administrators in a probate case, Full Authority & Limited Authority. Full Authority grants Executors and Administers the ability to act on behalf of the Estate with less supervision from the probate court. Limited Authority, however, requires more oversight by the court, including an additional court hearing to allow for overbids.


  • Complete understanding of all California Probate Real Estate Contracts
  • Experienced at selling property with court confirmation
  • Selling the property within 90% of the Probate Referee’s appraised value
  • Date of Death Appraisals
  • Address any title issue as it relates to the transaction
  • Provide vendor repair services upfront that will provide the Estate the highest return, with vendor payment deferred until close of escrow


Whether it is a probate with full or limited authority, or any other type of sale, effectively marketing a property requires a multitude of strategies and an aggressive campaign. Our marketing plan is designed to showcase your property to buyers worldwide and sell the property for the highest value possible. When you list with our team you receive local and international MLS exposure, two custom property websites, multi-platform advertising, YouTube videos and so much more.
