Just like in any real estate transaction in California, most heirs decide to hire a licensed real estate agent to help with the sale of a home. It is a wise decision in any real estate sales situation, and even more so in probate. Why? Because probate is more complex than a regular real estate transaction and because a successful probate sale requires a qualified team, which in most cases here in California includes a real estate agent, attorney, probate referee, judge, and others.
