Make a few calls of attorneys in the area and ask them exactly what type of services you are looking for.

First, you should shop around in Holland, MI. Secondly, what do you need the attorney for? Are you a seller or buyer?

Lastly, if you are a buyer a buyers agent is normally at no charge to you and can really help make the process go so much smoother, and cheaper if your attorney is charging by the hour...

Good luck!

to do what???

you have a misconception of their respective roles.

a lawyer is not a salesperson, not for a buyer and not for a seller.

1) are you buying of selling. Lawyers price differently for each since selling involves more work.
2) you need to ask in the Michigan market
3) buying without a real estate broker will not save you any commission
4) selling without a real estate broker could leave money on the table
5) an attorney is important, but will not replace a real estate broker.

I would inquire in Holland, MI, not Chicago. But if you're buying a home in Holland, you probably need the guidance of both an agent and an attorney. There's no advantage to a do-it-yourself on the buy side.
