Commercial Real Estate
CPA, Partner, National Director - Commercial Real Estate Industry
Today’s dynamic economic environment presents commercial real estate owners, operators and investors with both complex challenges and unprecedented opportunities. To seize those opportunities, industry participants need sound, professional support and market-focused business guidance.
The members of CohnReznick's Commercial Real Estate Industry Practice work as trusted business advisors to private equity funds, pension funds investing in real estate, REITs, commercial and residential property owners and operators, hotels and resorts, real estate developers, homebuilders and land developers.
Services we provide to the commercial real estate industry include:
Market analysis and strategy: We help investors and owners evaluate the current market and develop strategies based on their portfolios, investment objectives and risk profile.
Transaction support: Once a potential transaction has been identified, we provide financial modeling, valuations and appraisals, preparation of financial statements and support in acquisitions negotiations.
Capital sourcing: We can help connect our clients with a unique group of capital contributors, particularly for strategic joint ventures and asset-level equity and debt placement. Our capital network includes private equity funds, pension funds that invest in real estate and their advisors, family offices, foreign and domestic banks, life insurance companies and newly formed CMBS platforms.
Tax consulting and compliance: Our tax professionals have an unsurpassed depth of real-world experience in addressing a broad array of complex national and international tax issues including state and local matters. We help clients proactively navigate changing tax laws and capitalize on relevant tax benefits.
Cost segregation: A thorough cost segregation study can significantly accelerate cost recapture through accelerated depreciation.
Troubled asset management: We offer a wide array of asset value optimization, workout support, bankruptcy support and liquidation services to help lenders minimize the impact and resource drain caused by troubled assets. On the acquisition side, we help our clients negotiate favorable terms with lenders in single property asset acquisitions of REO as well as entire portfolios.
Operational Consulting: Through a suite of strategic, operational, and financial consulting services, CohnReznick helps institutional investors and real estate owners improve performance, financial management, and reporting. By combining cutting edge technology tools with innovative business strategies, we help real estate management and private equity firms, REITs, new real estate ventures, and other clients drive change throughout their organizations to improve the way they work.
The scope and scale of our consulting services are further extended through NOI Strategies, LLC – a division of CohnReznick. As a premier global real estate consultancy, NOI Strategies provides domestic and international real estate clients with management consulting, technology solutions, and support services that can help them achieve operational excellence.
