Real Estate Consulting Group

The Real Estate Consulting Group's focus is on appraisal and land planning.

Helping Landowners Make Informed Decisions.
For owners of significant real estate assets who wish to plan for

  • continued stewardship,
  • acquisition,
  • management,
  • estate planning, or
  • disposition of their real estate.

    Our Process: LandVest's Real Estate Consulting Group offers comprehensive land planning and appraisal services.
    The process is straightforward -

  • We first consult with each client to determine his or her concerns and objectives.
  • We work with families and institutions where goals may be conflicting or unclear.
  • We help sort through these issues.
  • Our land planners, appraisers, and GIS specialists will identify and maximize the value of your unique property by defining its potential through creative planning and design techniques, tied to market realities.

    In sum, we provide our clients with the information necessary to make an informed decision.

    Our Expertise: As advisors to owners of significant real estate over the last 30 years, LandVest knows many of the major properties in the Northeast and beyond. Because we have been a leading firm in marketing luxury real estate, our appraisers possess market knowledge second to none. Excellent appraisal work rises far above looking at comparable sales. It comes from understanding the subtleties of each property and transaction.

    What is the Objective?
    We work with clients to use this knowledge of their property to develop a set of choices and to understand the financial implications of each choice. Depending on each client's objectives, such choices may include:

  • sale of all or a portion of the property,
  • gifting to the next generation,
  • conservation of all or a portion of the property through Conservation Easements,
  • charitable gift,
  • development of the property, or limited development,
  • purchase of abutting property.

    LandVest is experienced in the planning and regulatory process, gaining approvals, and in managing land development. Our skills include negotiating complex transactions and conflict resolution for our clients.
