About

Get to Know Your Team at The Law Office of Enrique J. Fernandez, P.A.

 

Enrique J. Fernandez, Esq. – Founder and Owner

Enrique J. Fernandez was born in Miami, Florida. After high school, Enrique joined the United States Air Force where he served in the response to the attacks of September 11th, 2001. He came home after an honorable discharge armed with his Associate’s Degree and went to work managing an avionics repair station while pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree at night. Enrique always knew he would own his own business and that he loved real estate. Unlike many potential law students who are unsure about what area of the law they want to practice, Enrique went to law school specifically to become a real estate attorney. He graduated early in December of 2006, was admitted to the Florida Bar early in 2007, and promptly founded the Law Office of Enrique J. Fernandez, P.A.

Enrique believes the key to success is loving the life you have, while you build the life of your dreams. He wakes up most mornings before 5 a.m. and attacks his day completing a rigid morning routine that centers him and provides the clarity he needs to provide his clients with an incredible experience. Enrique was organized even as a child; from an early age every toy had its place. Basic military training developed Enrique’s natural aptitude for organization into a keen attention to detail. This attention can be seen in all he does. The systems he and his team have developed help take a deal from contract to closing smoothly. When asked what he does, Enrique will often say he builds systems and fights fires. Every day he focuses on making his team and his systems better and is always ready to lend a hand when a challenge arises that is outside the system’s ability to respond quickly.

Enrique lives in Miami with his wife Stephanie and daughter Arianna. He enjoys spending time with his family and taking them on adventures. Every summer they take a road trip and try to go farther and longer each year. He has also always enjoyed working with his hands and does not mind turning a wrench or swinging a hammer if an opportunity presents itself.

Stephanie Fernandez – Closer

Stephanie Fernandez was born and raised in Miami, FL. After high school, Stephanie completed her Associate’s Degree at Miami Dade College in Business Administration. Armed with her degree, she decided to go into public service and joined the public works department of her local city government. In this role, she learned the inner workings of local government and how to navigate its departmental structure. After years in the public sector, she decided to join our team where she quickly mastered the closing process while working through the post-closing and processing departments before becoming our Closer. As a Closer, Stephanie’s role is, simply put, to overcome challenges and close real estate transactions.

Those who work with Steph quickly notice her focus. She is well aware that it is her job to close the deal and she lets nothing distract her from that mission. When challenges arise during the closing process, she gets to work on them early so that there is no delay in closing. She uses her experience with the city to navigate municipal departments when a violation or other government issue threatens the deal. As Stephanie moves the deal through the closing process, those who come in contact with her are met with a smile that can be heard on the other end of a phone call or email. It is her ability to connect with people and understand them that truly sets Stephanie apart.
