Try these ideas. You can appoint anyone as trustee, even yourself (but not a great idea since one of the purposes is to keep your name out of the picture) The important thing is for the trustee to be someone you trust!(self evident) Lawyers are fine, but tend to cost. Relatives are fine, if they don’t have the same surname. Whoever you pick, you can always change, if necessary later on. Purchase it in "The 123 Anyname Trust,(Your example) and title it the same with "John Jones (or whoever you pick), as Trustee. Thats what goes on the land records. If accepted, set up the trust at closing, it just some paperwork that the title co can notarize. If not accepted, you can forget it. Anything else?
