"JoAnn has extensive knowledge and experience in real estate and financing matters. Her expert counsel has assisted the Company, which does real estate and financing transactions, and me with a number of difficult transactions. With her guidance, I was ultimately able avoid those transactions which would not have been in the best interest of the Company, allowing us to continue to have a solid financial foundation through difficult times."

"Jo Ann can take a very complex subject and explain it in easy, understandable terms to a layman. She is knowledgeable in her subject area and I always feel well taken care of without the confusing jargon and her prices are more than reasonable. She is also a lovely woman and easy to work with. She answers any and all questions without making the asker feel ridiculous. I highly recommend her without hesitation."
