My practice area focuses on residential and commercial real estate. McBrayer has one of the largest real estate practice groups in Kentucky that consists of an experienced team of attorneys equipped to handle any real estate contract. Our firm has strong relationships with the various banks located throughout Kentucky, many that date back to when our firm opened its doors in 1963.
As a real estate attorney, I handle virtually every aspect of real estate law, including title examination, title insurance, clearing title issues, deeds, settlement statements, preparation of loan documentation, contract negotiation and preparation, lease negotiation and preparation, and any and all other needs related to residential and commercial real estate matters.
Many times people will only come in contact with a real estate attorney when they arrive for a closing, whether that be for the purchase of a home, business, or investment property. Most of my work goes on behind the scenes, working throughout the transaction to ensure that when people take their seats at a closing table all of the legal issues have been addressed and resolved. It is only when things go wrong or issues arise during the process that a purchaser or seller of a property may hear from us prior to a closing. At McBrayer, we pride on ourselves on keeping those issues at bay and when we do come together for closing, making sure our clients feel confident that all the issues have been thoroughly addressed and that the transaction is legally sound.
The thing I enjoy most about real estate law is the many different types of people that I come into contact with every day. I may work on a closing for a ten thousand dollar piece of property or a ten million dollar piece of property, and I enjoy getting to meet everyone in between, as well as the challenges and nuances that come along with these different types of transactions.
Prior to joining McBrayer I practiced at Fogle Keller Purdy PLLC as an Associate from 2011-2013. In addition to handling real estate matters, I assisted in the areas of workers’ compensation defense, insurance defense, and federal black lung litigation.
Being involved in our community is a very important part of my life and my legal practice. I was selected to participate in the Commerce Lexington Leadership Lexington class of 2014-2015, and I can confidently say that that was one of the best experiences of my adult life. Nourish Your Neighborhood, an outreach program to address food insecurity in our community that I developed with the other members of my Leadership Lexington class, is very near and dear to my heart. Our goal was to unite local schools and businesses to create a relationship where community members could donate through local restaurants to provide food to family resource centers in local schools. This program has been working to feed kids in our own backyards who go hungry on a daily basis as well as strengthen and support our local restaurant businesses. I am proud to say our program has been a success; we have developed strong and ongoing relationships with multiple restaurants and elementary and middle schools that we are continuing to nurture. As of January 2015, we had raised over $20,000.00 that allowed us to purchase more than 500 gift cards given out to local schools to benefit their students, and we are planning to grow in the years to come.
As a direct result of the wonderful experience of my Leadership Lexington class, I now serve on the Steering Committee of both the Leadership Lexington Alumni Association and the Leadership Lexington Youth Program. I am also passionate about my work with Step by Step, an organization supporting young, single mothers in our community, where I serve on the fundraising committee.
