What was your greatest professional accomplishment in 2019?
I obtained a seven-figure property tax refund for a client whose center became impacted by the changes in the retail market. The owner was diligent in his efforts to keep the center viable; providing significant tenant improvement allowances to attract new tenants and free rent during build out periods. While the center looked healthy, substantial costs and expenses had diminished his NOI. By communicating with the owner and relaying the details of what was occurring beyond the appearance of the center, I was able to prove the owner was entitled to a reduction in assessment that was critical to the survival of the property going forward.
