As a Personal Representative - or Executor - of an estate, your responsibility is both complex and serious.
From the MA Legislature:
A personal representative shall have the duty to settle and distribute the estate of the decedent in accordance with the terms of any probated and effective will and this code, and as expeditiously and efficiently as is consistent with the best interests of the estate.
Real estate is often one of the largest and more complex assets to deal with when settling an estate. A poorly handled real estate transaction can cause extended delays and increased costs.
