Real Estate and Construction | Tax Partner


Business teamwork - puzzle pieces

Who I work with

As a partner in Aprio’s Real Estate and Construction Practice, I use my 15 years of tax and accounting experience to advise companies in commercial real estate development, construction, professional services, restaurant, and investment industries. With a focus on S-corporations and partnerships. If you are a commercial or multi-family real estate developer with over $100 million in gross assets owned, we should connect.

My specialty

I consult with clients in the areas of rental real estate taxation, construction contractor taxation and Section 1031 (like kind exchanges). One of my specialties is advising clients on how to utilize the partnership structure to achieve tax savings and realize business objectives. I also work with clients on tax structuring as well as complex merger/acquisition transactions.

Here are some of the results I have helped clients achieve in my time with Aprio:

Advised client on structuring rollup transaction of $300M commercial portfolio into 2 companies to consolidate family and estate planning strategies.
Advised client on 1031 strategies to bring in new equity and exchange out of a nonperforming asset deferring $5M of federal and state income taxes.
Structured sales of commercial real estate to reduce exposure to real property tax reassessments.
