Real Estate Lawyer Salt Lake City

Real Estate Lawyer Salt Lake City

Like any other realtor in Utah—especially anyone working along the Wasatch Front or Back and encountering a wide variety of clientele, circumstances, and demands—a good real estate lawyer in Salt Lake City that knows that the climate, terrain, construction quality, and as always, business relationships are all part of the legal landscape, too. Representing clients in a variety of situations with so many factors contingent upon legal outcomes means that these guys have to be on the top of their game, especially with this legal blog article saying that even “satisfied” clients don’t come back.


While the writer works for a powerhouse law firm in Manhattan and works with New York City real estate law, the same idea applies to the average real estate lawyer in Salt Lake City and the surrounding towns. The legal market is competitive. What are you, as an attorney, going to do about it? The statistics that the blog author puts forward are that 20% of “satisfied” clients fire their lawyer each year, and that it is less than 1% of “over satisfied” clients say goodbye to their legal counsel.

Okay, so law firms looking to keep clients have to “over-satisfy” them if they want repeat business, and given how difficult it can be to win new clients from firms with which they’re already working, it’s tempting for a real estate lawyer in Salt Lake City to throw up his hands and stick with the old standbys of practicing with integrity and competence and hoping for the best. And while being at your personal best is important, and will certainly develop your reputation and may even get you some friend-or-family, word-of-mouth referrals, unfortunately, it’s not enough.

So how does an attorney make sure he “over-satisfies” his clients? Jokes of Thanksgiving gluttony aside, our legal blog writer working in NYC says the trick is to “wow,” them. Likening the marketing strategies of the practice of real estate law to the marketing strategies of real estate itself, he cites a book by strategists at Ritz-Carlton, whose development of leadership and a superb business model have resulted in hundreds of successful properties raking in money for the company across the globe. Even the name Ritz-Carlton has become suffused within popular culture in songs like “Putting on the Ritz” and adjectives like “Ritzy.”

This isn’t to suggest that lawyers looking for repeat business should team up with firms that have crystal chandeliers or state-of-the-art swimming pools out back—simply that they should shine brighter than the other firms, so that when clients have a choice, they’ll come back to you. Thinking as a client does, this might mean a few things like: efficiency, success in court, lower billing rates, accessibility, expertise, confidence and warmth in communication, to start. The Sandy real estate law firm has taken on a new mantra to remind them to go above and beyond: “A satisfied client is only the beginning!”

About the Author

People who want a lot of Bull go to a Butcher. People who want results navigating a complex legal field go to a Lawyer that they can trust. That’s where I come in. I am Michael Anderson, an Attorney in the Salt Lake area focusing on the needs of the Average Joe wanting a better life for him and his family. I’m the Lawyer you can trust. I grew up in Utah and love it here. I am a Father to three, a Husband to one, and an Entrepreneur. I understand the feelings of joy each of those roles bring, and I understand the feeling of disappointment, fear, and regret when things go wrong. I attended the University of Utah where I received a B.A. degree in 2010 and a J.D. in 2014. I have focused my practice in Wills, Trusts, Real Estate, and Business Law. I love the thrill of helping clients secure their future, leaving a real legacy to their children. Unfortunately when problems arise with families. I also practice Family Law, with a focus on keeping relationships between the soon to be Ex’s civil for the benefit of their children and allowing both to walk away quickly with their heads held high. Before you worry too much about losing everything that you have worked for, before you permit yourself to be bullied by your soon to be ex, before you shed one more tear in silence, call me. I’m the Lawyer you can trust.
