In a dynamic industry like real estate, workflow is complicated —many dependencies and paths run not only parallel, but can often cross at numerous critical points along the value chain. Basic operational needs may be ongoing, but unique circumstances and challenges must be met quickly and effectively to remain productive and ahead of the competition. CohnReznick has an array of offerings specific to companies involved in commercial real estate.
Don’t pay more — or sell for less — than your property is worth. Through our proprietary financial modeling, expert valuations and appraisals, preparation of financial statements, and support with acquisition negotiations, your position will be clear.
Our network is vast and our relationships are long-tenured. Among capital sources are private equity funds, pension funds, family offices, foreign and domestic banks, life insurance companies, endowments and CMBS platforms. Throughout our Firm’s history we have connected clients with strong partners, unique sources of capital, and specialized advice in strategic joint ventures and asset-level equity and debt placement.

CohnReznick helps clients leverage technology to identify opportunity and streamline operations, executing more than 100 technology road map, selection, implementation, and organization projects annually. With global resources and experience in most real estate technology platforms, we help even the most complex organizations turn data into profit.
Improve the performance of properties you own by better aligning operations to strategy and optimizing critical business processes. Our solutions eliminate fragmented property operations and accounting silos, lower the cost per square foot of property assets under management, eliminate inefficiencies, and improve cash flow.
We provide cost segregation analysis so your organization can reclassify assets for faster depreciation — deferring taxes and increasing cash flows.
