The landscape of downtown Wagener has changed in the last few months. Tommy Willis bought what used to be the old peanut factory at 151 Main Street, and has made major improvements to the facility. The building will house four office suites, two of which are already opened for business. Delta Loan Company was the first occupant of the refurbished building, and in December Jackie Busbee opened up her law office for business.
Since leaving Kepes & Busbee of Aiken, SC, Ms. Busbee provided legal services out of her home for several months, before hanging out her shingle on Main Street. The office of Jacqueline F. Busbee, Attorney-At-Law is open full-time, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Susan Gentry is her full-time secretary.
A graduate of Clemson University and USC's School of Law, Busbee's area of expertise is commercial real estate. She performs all aspects of a commercial and residential real estate practitioner, including but not limited to title searches, title examination, load closings, and the drafting of leases and closing agreements.
Before working as a partner at Kepes & Busbee, Busbee was employed by Wyatt Development Company in Aiken, where she performed all legal aspects of the purchase, financing, development, and sale of commercial real estate. While attending Law School, Jackie Busbee was employed by the South Carolina Senate Judiciary Committee, where she researched issues related to proposed and existing legislation. She drafted legislation and amendments, assisted with subcommittee meetings, and assisted the legislative efforts of senators, representatives, the attorney general, and special interest groups.
In 1988, the former Jackie Fogle married Doug Busbee of Wagener. Doug is an Auto Demolition Technician and the owner of Busbee's Frame and Body in Wagener. The Busbees have two children: Ethan, age 3, and Brielle, age 1.
