Moretz & Skufca, PLLC offers a wide range of services related to commercial real estate in North Carolina and South Carolina. We represent all types of parties in real estate transactions, including buyers, sellers, investors, lenders, contractors and developers. We have many years of experience in handling complex real estate transactions throughout the Charlotte metro area.

Our lead commercial real estate attorney, Zac Moretz, is one of only a handful of attorneys in the Charlotte area certified as a Specialist in Commercial Real Estate Law by the North Carolina State Bar.


Zac is also a licensed real estate broker in both North and South Carolina. He has substantial experience in commercial and residential real estate development, including setting up residential, commercial, and mixed-use developments and owners’ associations of all kinds; representing commercial property owners and developers throughout the state; and advising businesses of all kinds on corporate, contractual and other business-related issues. Zac is former general counsel to a large local developer and has represented the developers or the owners associations of many of the Charlotte area’s highest-profile real estate developments.

We look at business deals from the owner’s perspective, with our top priorities being first, to help protect the owners from liability, and second, to help get deals done and not be an impediment to the process. Government regulations and financing options have become much more complex recently – these days, the help of a specialized commercial real estate lawyer is essential to protect your interests and make sure you are getting the best deal possible.

  • Real estate development issues of all kinds
