About About Q&A Publications News Credentials About Sarah Sarah Yaeger focuses on real estate transactions representing utilities and lenders in the purchase and sale of real property, negotiating and acquiring easement rights, commercial loan transactions, and loan workouts. Q&A Expand All Collapse All What do you find most exciting about your work? I am what people call a "dirt" lawyer. My practice focuses on anything and everything real property related. When you think about it, almost all matters have some sort of real estate component. Because of this, I get to not only work on transactional matters, but I am always assisting in various other matters that have a "dirt" component. It is exciting to use my knowledge of my practice area to assist other attorneys in other matters they are handling. What previous experiences, prior to your work at Balch, influence your practice? The first thing I did as a new attorney was learn how to run a title search. This has shaped my practice in the most influential way. Learning how to search real estate records, whether they be online or in the courthouse, for any and all matters that affect a piece of property, shaped the way I think and practice as a real estate attorney. No matter what I am working on, I always approach it with the question "If I am examining a title 20 years down the road, will this document be clear and accurate as to what we are trying to achieve?" Having this background has made me a more thoughtful attorney.
