I believe in being very proactive; perhaps borderline aggressive to be honest, but in a good way!
Jana values her close working relationships with her colleagues and customers. If she anticipates any unique challenges, she has a team of subject matter experts that she can call on to help resolve even the most difficult issue. Jana also looks upon her colleagues and customers as mentors helping her to continually strengthen her talents and expand her knowledge of the commercial title real estate industry.
