David Ruzow, Managing Director of Granite Real Estate Tax Consultants, is delighted with his company’s year-end results – down, the way he and his clients like it. That’s because Granite’s business is helping homeowners lower their assessments and save on property taxes. Ruzow is uniquely qualified to represent clients because of his dual expertise as both a certified real estate appraiser and a licensed real estate broker. His knowledge and judgment, gained in over 30 years of valuing real estate, make all the difference in mounting a successful property assessment challenge.
“The fact is, we offer our property tax reduction services only to homeowners who we believe are over-assessed,” commented Mr. Ruzow. Granite will prepare an appeal and follow all of the steps necessary to get the reduction the client deserves. The fee, 50% of the first year’s tax savings, is owed only if and when the assessment gets reduced.
Trust the experts
The burden of proof is on your consultant to present a credible case of over-assessment. Having an expert represent you – someone who knows values in the area, understands what comparables to use as proof of value, and who speaks the same language as the assessors, is critical. David Ruzow can handily counter an argument put forth by an assessor because he is an expert at the valuation, and negotiation of real estate.
