Jeff Zdenek – Closing Attorney

Jeff opened his practice in 1997 after graduating from Western Michigan University Thomas M.

When not engaged in real estate activities, including the law practice, flips and AirBnB investments, Jeff spends his free time playing basketball and tennis, playing guitar and writing music, reading, and spending time at his place on Smith Mountain Lake. Jeff’s favorite charities are the Food Bank of NC, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, Guardian Angel, and 100 Men Who Give a Damn.
