Over the course of more than four decades of real estate assessment, I have had the privilege of working with numerous thought leaders in the field. I have participated in the sometimes rough-and-tumble process of developing policy and practice methods both as a public servant and as a practitioner. I began on the government side, as Chief Deputy Commissioner of the Board of Appeals, now the Board of Review, before entering private practice. So much of the assessment practice is dedicated to mastering the factual details of a case. But it’s equally important to take the long view. Especially, in this period of flux and rapid change, understanding an appeal as part of the bigger picture can be the key to winning insight.
Simply put, we strive to get our clients the best result. We’re responsive. We pay close attention and manage their real estate assessments to get them the fairest and best tax reductions possible. Sometimes, it’s our job to bring them our expertise, even when they don’t want to hear it.
