Real Estate

Marks Paneth has served the real estate industry for more than 100 years. We have built a solid track record assisting many of the industry’s premier commercial and residential real estate owners, developers, builders, REITs (real estate investment trusts) and property managers. We are trusted advisers to leading New York City real estate management companies, as well as prominent real estate families.

We offer a full range of financial, tax and accounting solutions – including guidance on acquisitions and joint ventures, tax planning, financial statement and tax return preparation, tax consulting, partnership cash flow modeling and transactional services. These services are customized to satisfy the requirements of virtually every real estate stakeholder, from the individual real estate owner to the largest global institutional investor.

In addition, we work closely with local housing and monitoring agencies and have governmental compliance expertise with federally subsidized projects – such as Section 236 and Section 8. Moreover, we have worked with stakeholders in the affordable housing industry for over 30 years and assist our clients with in-depth knowledge of compliance and reporting requirements at the federal, state and/or local level, in addition to financial and tax guidance that fits the needs of each property.
