Manhattan is a place of constant change, and the commercial leasing process can feel overwhelming. Sophisticated parties, in-depth contracts, regulations, and many other factors can turn a straightforward transaction upside down.

As part of our commercial leasing services, our firm can help with a wide range of buying and selling services, including 1031 exchanges. A 1031 exchange can be a powerful tool for deferring certain taxes on investment property, but the rules are complex and can be confusing. Our firm is ready to help you explore whether a 1031 exchange might work for you and the effect it could have on your bottom line. We can structure your transaction and handle all the paperwork that you need to make the process work as smoothly as possible.

We can answer your questions, explain what options may work for you, and guide you through the process from start to finish.
