Jeannette joined Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP as a paralegal in the Real Estate department more than 17 years ago. Her main focus is to assist the real estate lawyers on residential closings; however, she has worked on all aspects of real estate law, including commercial real estate. Jeannette works with individual and corporate clients on all real estate matters, including, but not limited to, acquisitions, developments, sales, private lender loans, and construction closings, and her extensive experience has allowed her to effectively handle many different closing scenarios that arise, such as title defect and survey issues. As a result, she has a better understanding of how to assist clients through any potential issues to facilitate a closing. In fact, Jeannette believes buying and selling real estate tends to be a happy time, and she enjoys being the person that helps clients finalize their closings. She especially appreciates the relationships she has made with repeat clients, realtors, and loan officers/processors over the years.
Away from the office, this rare born-and-raised Florida native loves photography and creating digital scrapbooks. She also enjoys spending time with her family, including being kept on her toes by her three children, the oldest of whom recently joined the Air Force.
