Real Estate Law Blog: Service, Please


Customer Experience and Real Estate Law


I'm in the US at present and as ever here, you really notice the way they 'do' service.

It's hard to know what engenders this great service. Message, personality, timing, team? However, if you could bottle it then it's a 'winner' for any service business. With AI, AR, Proptech and wearable-tech all developing at a 'rate of knots' soon the only differential for lawyers in the real estate world will be customer experience.

I hope we manage this at Freeths - we certainly have the team and we all strive to go the 'extra mile' for our clients. As the New Yorkers would say: “excelsior”...Wherever you are in the world great service makes for a good experience and that makes a good business a great business, 20% on top or not...
