I sold my home in June of 2016 and Lee Zeidman was my attorney. I couldn’t be happier with the level of service I received
I always think it’s important to understand the person leaving the review because “good service” to one person could be “average” (or “below average”) service to another. About me – I used to develop properties, however, now, I am an attorney in California. With that said, I have bought, developed, and sold over 20 properties in my lifetime. For these reasons, I have a deeper level of understanding of what Mr. Zeidman does and how he compares to his peers.
On this particular transaction, the buyer was being difficult to say the least. At every turn, the buyer’s were trying to find reasons to reduce the sales price. It was because of Lee’s business acumen and natural negotiating talent that allowed me to stay strong on my price. It wasn’t that he gave me false sense of confidence, it was that he correctly analyzed the buyer’s (weak) position and correctly advised me on what to do. His analysis coupled with his business acumen saved me over $20,000!
He understood when my position was strong, and when my position was weak, and advised me accordingly. This is something you cannot put a price tag on. Most attorneys basically act as liaison and get their money when the transaction closes, but not Lee Zeidman. Lee fought for every one of my dollars as if it was his own. When the buyer’s were trying to get credits, I could tell Lee cared, that I wasn’t just a transaction, but a real person who had real money to lose. This is not something they teach in law school, this is something you’re born with.
I can say unequivocally, he is the best transitional real estate attorney I have come across in my 20+ real estate transactions over the past 10 years.
He’s sharp, to the point, and very professional. He’s a no nonsense aggressive attorney who zealously advocated for me, his client.
I think it’s important to note, his rates were very reasonable and were in line with other attorneys in the area.
