Mr. Glasser and his team have completed over 1,000 property tax appeals in 24 counties, during the past 25 years, for commercial property, with a strong track record. Mr. Glasser holds the MAI designation, which is the highest designation in real estate valuation, as well as a broker’s license. The firm can provide an initial feasibility review for an individual property or portfolio without charge.

Our Strength

Our talent is in identifying property which has been valued too high by the Assessor’s Office, determining the cause of the over assessment, developing support for the appropriate tax assessment, and negotiating with the Assessor’s Office for an adjustment to the assessment. We also prepare for and conduct hearings before the Assessment Appeals Board (AAB) on those occasions when negotiation with the Office of the Assessor is not fruitful.

Thank you for considering us
for your tax appeal needs.
