Another awesome experience
We had a closing while Jennifer was out on vacation for the holidays. She responded to the emails from my mortgage lender timely and she came to the closing in person. She didn't rush and explained all documents and answered all questions thoroughly. This is our second time using her and I will be using her again. She is amazing, has a great personality and knowledge of her craft.

Fantastic Real Estate attorney
I am an attorney myself; however, I have trusted Jennifer to do all of my personal/family real estate closings for years. She's the best in the business. I wouldn't use anyone else for Real Estate matters.

Best Real Estate Closing Ever!
Jen took the reins on my condo sale right away and it was by far the smoothest I've ever done. She was super communicative during the process, emailing all necessary documents and requests for documentation. She must work around the clock based on when the emails arrive. I met her at the title company to sign the documents at closing and she had me in and out in no time, just fantastic!

Wonderful Attorney
Jennifer was wonderful. She was professional but personable. We felt very secure with her handling all matters in the sell of our home. She made the experience very easy and helped to calm any stress we were feeling. Have already highly recommended her to friends and family.

She lives up to these positive reviews!
Jennifer handled our closing...we sold the house without a realtor. Everything was handled smoothly...no hiccups!. The process started the end of May & we closed on July 9. couldn't have asked for a better attorney for real estate.She keeps you informed each step of the way & is quick to respond to questions you might have. Definitely would recommend her to represent people interested in selling their home. Thanks again, Jennifer!

The real MVP of real estate attorneys
Jennifer handled everything for me from start to finish. She’s personable, knowledgeable, and extremely responsive. The process was painless, and we closed in 30 days.

Recent house closing
Jennifer was wonderful to work with on the closing of my house. She was quick to respond to all the questions I had. She really knows her stuff and stays calm even though I was a nervous wreck. She took care of every last detail and I had no worries when working with Jennifer. I highly recommend her for anyone going through a real estate transaction.

Excellent lawyer for close on buy and sell!
Jennifer made our path to close (and close itself) as streamlined and easy as possible for both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new, for sale by owner home.

Highly Recommend
I hired Jennifer for a real estate closing. She made me feel like I was her only client at the time. Her attention to my needs was always through and prompt. I always felt that she was able to find the perfect balance of knowledge and understanding when answering my questions or explaining something to me. What a great feeling to to have an attorney like Jennifer you can trust to have your back. Without hesitation I recommend Jennifer.

Above & Beyond
Jennifer Kearney provided us with excellent service as our Real Estate attorney on the sale of our property. She is a true professional and went above and beyond her closing responsibilities handling a financial settlement with the buyers for us when a storm took out our fence 4 days before closing. We highly recommend her and her staff.

Jennifer Kearnay
I honestly don't know what we would have done without Jennifer Kearney. The buyers lender make the sale very lengthy and unnecessarily complicated. Jennifer kept in contact with the lender on a daily basis until the sale was final. When it was time to close on the new home, Jennifer drove an additional 45 minutes (herself) to deliver lien paperwork so that the closing could be completed on time. She exceeded all of our expectations, we would recommend Jennifer Kearney to anyone who is selling or buying a home.

God send
My husband and I just closed on our very first home which was exciting for us but in this process we had an incompetent lender that made the whole thing a nightmare which I Would rather forget. The only great thing that came out of this nightmare was Jennifer Kearney. Jennifer was very motherly and cradled us and fought for us tooth and nail weekends anytime she was there.Jennifer was so down to earth and had us laughing at closing which is what we needed. If it wasn’t for her I would of lost it. I will never forget everything she did for us and actually feel as I made a mew friend.
