Minnetonka, MN asked in Real Estate Law for Minnesota

Q: Can a person purchase a home anonymously and if so how can ownership be proven?

Our family home, a contemporary in excellent condition, was estimated to be worth 395-425k

At the time of my mother's death Zillow value was 410k The sibling executor of the trust sold the home for 249k to a flipper without conferring with other siblings, or putting it on the market. No explanation was given. After cosmetic renovation, the home is now for sale for 625k

We suspect the sibling executor purchased it and the renovation company is complicit. How can ownership be proven? Is this a matter for a real estate or trust and estate lawyer? Thank You
