Closing attorney readies for a new chapter with a familiar beginning
Closing attorney Jackie Kurz finds her greatest satisfaction at the settlement table as the ink dries and she sees the smiling faces of homebuyers and sellers, all eager to begin a new chapter of their lives, knowing she played a part in making it all happen.
"Having a hand in creating that happiness is very rewarding," the Pennsylvania native said.
Kurz starts a new chapter of her own this week as she returns to Federal Title & Escrow Company. After more than two years, and two states, she is ready to pick up right where she left off, creating a settlement experience for each client that is seamless and painless.
A practicing attorney for the past eight years, Kurz focuses primarily on real estate matters. She received her Juris Doctorate from the Dickinson School of Law of the Pennsylvania State University and is a member of the Pennsylvania and D.C. bar associations.
Her experience and expertise make Kurz an invaluable resource for consumers, who may have questions about the closing process. Additionally Kurz blends nicely with Federal Title's business culture, said Todd Ewing, Federal Title founder & president.
"We are all very excited for Jackie's return 'home,'" Ewing said. "She has a firm grasp of the underwriting legal requirements and her demeanor at the closing table is non-intrusive yet deliberate in those rare instances of conflict between parties."
The self-professed "foodie" and Army wife looks forward to revisiting favorite local restaurants and getting acquainted with new ones that have opened since she last lived here.
Kurz worked for Federal Title from July 2005 until April 2008 when she relocated with her husband to military bases in Georgia and later Kentucky. After 20 years of active duty service, her husband is slated to retire, allowing the pair to settle down in one place for a while.
Kurz is the second attorney to return to Federal Title in the last 12 months, following Catherine Schmitt who returned in November 2009 after military service and a stint at Monarch Title, Inc.
"Federal Title has honestly been one of the best places I have ever worked, and I look forward to picking up where I left off – doing everything I can to assist homebuyers, sellers and borrowers who are refinancing," Kurz said.
