What We Do

Real Estate Advising & Transactions

When a client is not sure what the best path forward is with their real estate or finances, we look at the full picture and develop a plan to fit their needs. From selling a property and reinvesting in real estate funds to a 1031 exchange with our management, we have a variety of ways to advise and assist with real estate portfolios.


During a transaction, there are many pieces to the puzzle to be accounted for. We work with our clients and their brokers to ensure everything is done in a timely fashion, ensuring your assets are transitioned to the best place for you. We often identify new properties for an exchange in advance of a sale, allowing for a smoother process and better planning. Our team has vast experience in every asset class and area of the country, allowing us to diversify portfolios and accounts for any client goals.


Our expertise also enables us to advise when selling a business, as this may often involve real estate components. When deciding the terms of sale, incorporating our team allows for additional creative thinking to maximize your value when finalizing transaction details.


From Fortune 500 to “mom and pop,” our team has a boutique approach. We can be as hands on or off as our clientele need us to be. In person, on Zoom, via phone or email, we make ourselves available to help our clients achieve the best possible outcomes with their assets.
