Do you always get a reduction?
No, we can’t guarantee a reduction, but we can guarantee we will use our extensive resources and 100+ years of combined experience to make sure your property tax value is fair and equal.
I’m considering selling my home. If you are successful in reducing my value, will it affect my listing price?
No, prudent realtors will assist you in setting a selling price. Their objective is to obtain the highest price for your property based on current market conditions. Our objective is to obtain the lowest property tax value based on our knowledge of the property tax system and comparable property assessments.
Why do you charge a flat up-front fee?
