An associate attorney in McManamy Jackson Hollis' Savannah office, Amelia Smith focuses on the final component of the closing transaction while providing positive communication and customer service between buyers and sellers, and working with the attorneys to complete pending purchase agreements and oversees the closing checklist for all real estate sales.

In addition to the collection and distribution of real estate documents, Amelia also coordinates the preparation of final sequence of closing packages to ensure an easy and informative flow during the actual closing process.
