Best Real Estate Attorney: Best of the Best – Savannah Morning News

Written by Joel Gerber. Posted in Real Estate

I’m pleased to announce that I was voted the Best Real Estate Attorney in the Savannah Morning News “Best of the Best” edition. I also won the Best Overall Attorney and Individual Attorney. It’s incredibly humbling to be recognized by my friends and colleagues. I work with the BEST Realtors, lenders and clients in town and none of this would have been possible without their continued support. Most importantly, I would like to recognize my entire team of paralegals who are the BEST in the business.
