Meet Our Team

At the core of every great business is a burning desire to bring value to its customers.  Since the day we opened our doors to the public, we at Barristers Title have tried to embody this principle.

We employ this everyday:  from the way we answer the phone (we do not believe in an automated phone directory), to our very short turnaround times, to the fact that our owner gives out his cell phone number to our customers. Our tagline has long been “A Helping Hand.”

If you are a current customer, we thank you.  If you have never worked with us before, we would love the opportunity to show you what we’re all about.

Sal Balsamo

Operations & Underwriting Counsel, Sole Owner

Did you know...I was one shot from qualifying as a Small Arms Marksman when I served in the military.

Sal is a graduate of the Wake Forest University School of Law and is licensed to practice law in the State of North Carolina. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Following Law school, Sal chose to serve his country as a Judge Advocate in the United States Air Force. After receiving an Honorable Discharge following the completion of his five-year term in the Air Force, Sal moved to Charlotte.

In July of 2000, Sal founded the Law Office of Salvatore Balsamo, P.C., a boutique law firm specializing in real estate closings. Sal personally conducted more than 8,000 residential and commercial real estate transactions. From his experience as a practitioner, Sal firmly believes that buyers and sellers have the right to be represented by legal counsel of their own choosing. Buyer’s attorneys, in consultation with their clients, should be allowed to choose their title company for any given transaction without interference from those connected to the transaction who have their own self-interests at heart.

In 2006, Barrister’s Title Services was born. Sal’s vision at the time was to build the best title agency in the State, a goal that has been achieved. As a result of his experiences as a Closing Attorney and Underwriting Counsel, Sal is a great resource for underwriting questions or to assist with a problem in the closing of a particular transaction. As a former real estate practitioner, Sal believes that the role for the title counsel is to assist the parties to get to closing. He has forged terrific relationships with our underwriters which allows him to seek resolutions that benefit all of the parties involved.

Sal is a founding member and the only person who has ever served as Treasurer of the Real Estate Lawyers Association of North Carolina (RELANC), an entity that is firmly committed to making sure that buyers and sellers are represented by attorneys during the closing process. Sal, like RELANC, believes that buyers' and sellers' interests are best served by attorney representation and that non-attorney settlement shops violate North Carolina law. Sal is also a member of the Mecklenburg Real Property Council.

Sal has a wonderful wife, Zoe, and a beautiful daughter, Isabelle.
