RETC HISTORY

In 1986, when the real estate market was contracting, VK Gupta identified an opportunity in property tax advisory. Property values were decreasing and jurisdictions were not making the appropriate adjustments. VK leveraged his extensive valuation knowledge and access to information from his experience as a real estate broker and applied it as a property tax consultant where he quickly realized that the market was underserved.

He founded RETC and began building a team of talented tax professionals with strong analytical skills, offering a high level of service to their clients. Over the years, RETC has gained a reputation in the real estate community for its level of commitment and service to its clients, which is evidenced by its representation of more than $20 billion in assets. In 2010, VK’s son, Amish Gupta, joined RETC from The Carlyle Group where he worked as an investment professional in their U.S. Real Estate Fund. With a fresh new perspective, Amish has bolstered RETC by providing a strong backbone in real estate valuation and investing. Under his guidance, RETC’s efficiency has quadrupled.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

As Director of Acquisitions & Dispositions for Centennial Holding Company, I frequently utilize RETC’s professional tax projections as a part of my underwriting process. Property tax is the most impactful expense category for any real estate deal and accurately calculating it is of paramount importance to effectively forecasting the deal’s returns. By providing detailed Sales Ratio Studies for the respective counties, RETC allows me to underwrite more confidently.

RETC's property tax expertise has been invaluable to us over the years, particularly on the underwriting side. They have helped tighten our models by making sure our real estate tax projections are as accurate as possible. In addition, for existing assets, they have kept our taxes down through their appeal work and assisted in our budgeting process by effectively projecting our property taxes for the subsequent fiscal year.
