RETC Group was established in Dallas, TX in 1986. After the Great Recession, Amish Gupta returned to Dallas from his career in real estate private equity to bolster in build RETC’s national presence focused exclusively on real estate property taxes. To-date, RETC has worked in all but 3 states and remains grounded on the core principal of communication, quality control and being creative for each individual client.
RETC works in all asset classes in the CRE spectrum. Clients are career, sophisticated holders of real estate and demand the same level of commitment from their third-party consultants. They want the most aggressive consultant working on their behalf. They find this to be the case when they work with RETC.
Our team separates itself from its competition in the real estate deal cycle. In the acquisition phase, where information is paramount, we make certain the client is informed as possible so they can win the deal and give them a winning advantage amongst their peers. Secondly, in the hold phase, we are very aggressive and mindful of the approach to win in the appeal and litigation. We eliminate all the guess work and formulate the best strategy. Thirdly, in the disposition phase, it is critical we validate brokers opinions of value. It is vital that they understand and are analyzing properly what a new investor is facing.
Leading members of the RETC team have extensive real estate backgrounds that include real estate private equity, finance, and investment sales. This experience is blended with traditional consulting and property tax backgrounds to build a formidable team. The end result is a gain for the client and allows us to approach an investment in the same manner they see best.
An advantage of being a boutique firm with a national presence, is it allows us to be highly creative and nimble. More real estate firms are moving to a virtual approach in all aspects of their business. This is true even in the local appraisal jurisdictions where we serve. Therefore, having consultants planted and spread across the country is less necessary. Ultimately this creates a highly collaborative environment internally that pays dividends for the client.
No two clients are alike. They may be similar in asset class, but each has their own set of requirements and peculiarities that drive the fee structures we negotiate. It simply a matter of doing what is fair and appropriate for both parties involved. The task is to ensure their happiness, establish the relationship and act as an extension of their asset management.
Communication is a critical theme throughout RETC. How we disseminate information is a very large part of our daily operations. This speaks to our objective of providing our clients with the best possible information for their own edification and decision-making process. Even internally, RETC employees abide by a 24-hour rule in follow-up verbally and/or electronically.
The goal is to help our clients to be as successful as possible with their investments. Preserving and improving cashflows will undoubtedly benefit our clients and allow us to grow alongside of them. Our approach is long-term in nature as we truly value the relationship and the part we play in the success of our clients investments.
