Fleet, Smith & Freeman

Fleet, Smith & Freeman has closed 66 transactions for me over the course of my career.  They are attentive, organized, kind, and close each deal with intension. There is a well respected attorney to oversee each property transfer on site and this has been proven time and again to be the saving grace of many of my closings. I would highly recommend the Attorneys, assistants, and staff at Fleet, Smith, and Freeman to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell a property in Florida.  They are located in Shalimar. No, you do not need to be physically present at closing. They have mailed packages all over the world for me to include, Germany and Japan. 


A big, "THANK YOU", as always to my ladies. You are fantastic!
