Skoloff & Wolfe knows what multifamily property owners are up against.

Skoloff & Wolfe is hyper-focused on one line item of the entire portfolio – property taxes.

We know that in order to be competitive and attract the most rent, landlords realize they must market their properties as places where people can and want to spend time. Amenities more commonly associated with hotels and office buildings, such as gyms and free coffee bars, not only cost money but consume valuable square footage.

Only hard evidence and analysis that supports your claims will get municipal taxing authorities to reconsider. Similarly, for owners with a portfolio of multifamily properties, it is vital to have experienced counsel screen all assets in the portfolio annually and recommend on which properties should be contested and which should not.
