Minna Reid

Real Estate Expert Witness CT & FL

As a Connecticut and Florida licensed Real Estate Broker,  I have been practicing real estate since 2007, in various roles from salesperson, to team leader, to brokerage owner.

Throughout my career I have enjoyed helping my clients reach their sales objectives while at the same time gaining strategic insights into the real estate industry, including broker statutory obligations, liability, Realtor ethics, fiduciary duty, compliance, and standards of care. 

The focus of my real estate business has always been selling property with complex legal and financial challenges, including pre-foreclosures, short sales, probate sales, and properties with lien complications. I have extensive specialized real estate expertise in these areas.
