We participate in national and regional real estate trade organizations and are one of the non-national firms based in the West Coast to be active members of NAREIT. Our clients invest in all types of real estate assets and all types of real estate entities with significant institutional investor capital; some of these entities have up to a billion dollars of real estate investments. We assist these clients in forming and structuring these entities, complying with regulatory and reporting requirements as well as performing transactional/consulting services.

Many of our dedicated real estate professionals have served as executives in large real estate companies, and many own real estate projects. In contrast to our counterparts, we do not believe real estate consulting is an academic exercise.
