Fred Bollaci has been practicing law in Florida since 2002 and has helped numerous clients construct estate plans that provide themselves and their families with sound legal strategy and added peace of mind.
As a both an experienced attorney and licensed Real Estate Broker Associate in Florida, Fred has helped many clients move within Florida, and relocate to the Sunshine State by finding their dream home and assisting them in establishing Florida residency and getting their Florida affairs in order, as anyone who owns property in Florida should have Florida estate planning documents, which typically include a Will, Durable Power of Attorney, Living Will, and Designation of Healthcare Surrogate, and in many cases warrant setting up one or more Trusts.
The above documents deal with whom you want to leave any real or personal property to, whom will serve to administer and distribute such property, whom you would want to have make legal decisions (such as pay your bills and handle your financial affairs) in the event you are incapacitated, a formal, legally binding statement of your healthcare wishes and whom you would want to have make important healthcare decisions in the event you are unable, and more. In fact, anyone over the legal age of 18 should have a proper set of legal documents that formally express their wishes.
Crafting and executing these documents properly requires skill and knowledge that only a Florida Trusts and Estates attorney can provide. There are special requirements and nuances in Florida law that may render out of state documents or anything clients may have drafted themselves invalid. Also, if your documents were prepared years ago, laws and circumstances change. Clients are advised to review their estate plan on an annual basis to be sure their expressed wishes are consistent with any possible changes in the law or in their circumstances. A consultation with Fred Bollaci can save you and your family needless grief and expense down the road and you can rest assured your affairs are in order.

“We were undecided about whether we wanted to be on the East or West Coast of Florida, as we have family and friends all over the state. Fred Bollaci took the time to explain each area and encouraged us to come and spend time in each to get a taste. He met us for several days of looking, first in Palm Beach, then he accompanied us to Naples. We fell in love with the small town feel, and elegant, laid back vibe of Naples, and likely never would have bought there if we started working with an agent who just did Palm Beach. Fred was able to offer an unbiased opinion and shared knowledge of the pros and cons of each area we looked, which helped in our decision. We love our new winter home, which is a short walk to the most beautiful beach and so many great shops and restaurants. Fred Bollaci is also now our Florida attorney, and a great person to know.” -Bob, Naples, Florida
Fred Bollaci is a valuable asset to locals as well! Even if you think you know an area well, it pays to work with an agent who not only knows the area, but who is also looking out for your best interests. Most agents operate as “Transaction Brokers,” whose job is to facilitate a transaction, these agents are supposed to act as neutral facilitators and do NOT have fiduciary duties of loyalty, confidentiality, and obedience, as their primary goal is to facilitate a transaction. With Fred Bollaci, you have access to your own Buyer’s Agent, who is working exclusively for you. As a Buyer’s Agent, his duties of loyalty, confidentiality, and obedience will look out for your best interests. Who you work with matters, and it pays to work with Fred.

”I was looking to purchase a turn key condo somewhere near the beach in South Florida from Jupiter to Fort Lauderdale and was overwhelmed by all the listings online and felt like most agents I reached out to were overly aggressive in just wanting to sell me something and not at all interested in learning about me or what I wanted. I was referred to Fred Bollaci who took time to listen to me and learn what I was looking for and what I didn’t want. We spoke and reviewed available properties for several months and I decided it was time to look in person. Fred found a place through his contacts that was not on the market but the owners were planning on listing soon. We saw it, it was the ideal space in an ideal place, steps from the beach and Delray’s Atlantic Avenue! I love my new home! Thank you, Fred!” -Marilyn, Delray Beach, Florida
