Listen as Vice President Menachem Rapoport describes the long-term relationship Crown Court Properties has with Baker Tilly and the ongoing value he sees from our housing transactions team.

“They crunch the numbers. They don't just look at the finances and the economics. They also have a deep knowledge and understanding of what the rules are,” Menachem explains. “I can say, several times that has kept us from taking a turn down the wrong road. Baker Tilly puts the pieces together and helps you see the path of how to do a deal right.”
