The Game Changer

What Sets Exceptional Property Tax Consultants Apart

Having the right consultant by your side can be a game-changer, the difference between overpaying and securing fair assessments. You deserve a tax consultant that will truly care for your properties as much as you do.

Here are four indispensable qualities you can distinguish when choosing a property tax consultant that will make a difference in your results:

Passion for Your Company: 

A truly effective property tax consultant isn’t just in it for the paycheck; they’re genuinely invested in your company’s success. They take the time to understand your properties, the operations, and unique challenges. This passion translates into a deep commitment to securing the most favorable tax outcomes for your properties. Look for a consultant who demonstrates enthusiasm for your company’s mission and values, as this passion will drive them to go above and beyond in advocating for your interests. 

Exceptional Capabilities with Each County’s Property Tax Appeal Process and Relationships: 

Your consultant should not only possess a comprehensive understanding of tax laws, assessment methodologies, and appeal procedures for each county they will represent you in, but they should also have a respectful relationship with each county. They need to understand each county’s preferences and approaches. Proficiency in crafting compelling appeals, presenting persuasive arguments and providing an abundance of evidence while honoring the representatives from the assessor’s office is paramount to achieving favorable outcomes for you. Seek out consultants with a proven track record of success in reducing tax liabilities and securing fair assessments while maintaining high levels of respect from the assessor’s office in each jurisdiction. 

Personally Knowledgeable About Your Property’s Economic Dynamics: 

The economic drivers that affect each multifamily property are dynamic, influenced by a myriad of factors ranging from economic trends to regulatory changes. A top-tier property tax consultant is committed to continuous learning and staying current of developments that impact your industry, properties and the local economy. They conduct thorough market research, monitor trends, and leverage their insights to inform their strategies for minimizing your tax burden. Choose a consultant who demonstrates a hunger for knowledge and a proactive approach. 

Exuberance for Each Property: 

Effectively representing your interests in property tax matters requires energy, drive, and an unwavering commitment to excellence. Avoid consultants who spread themselves too thin, as this can lead to subpar results and missed opportunities for tax savings. Assessors love working with overwhelmed consultants because they are willing to take any reduction they offer. Instead, opt for tax consulting companies who limit the number of cases per consultant, prioritizing client success and relentless pursuit of optimal outcomes over a massive volume of work to increase their profits. Your consultant should possess the time, stamina and dedication necessary to effectively work on each case one by one without compromising on the quality of their work. 

Selecting the right property tax consultant is a critical decision that can significantly impact your property’s financial health. You can ensure that your properties are in capable hands as you invest the time and effort to find a consultant who embodies these essential attributes.

Understanding the Kolbe A Assessment 

Kolbe A is not a personality test.  It focuses on conative abilities, or our natural operating modes when we are free to be ourselves.  The focus is on how an individual naturally tackles tasks that require work. It identifies four primary modes of operation: 

Fact Finder: This assesses how individuals gather and disseminate information. Those with high Fact Finder scores love to gather as much data as possible before making decisions. 

Follow Thru: Measures an individual’s propensity for organizing and structuring information and tasks. High Follow Thru scorers thrive in creating systems and processes, ensuring efficiency and order. 

Quick Start: Reflects an individual’s comfort level with uncertainty and risk. Those with high Quick Start scores are innovative and adaptable, often taking the initiative in fast-paced environments. 

Implementor: Evaluates how individuals handle tangible tasks and ideas. High Implementor scorers excel in hands-on work and construction, bringing practical skills to the table. 

Building a Dynamic Team 

Understanding each team member’s natural mode of operation can help you curate teams that complement one another’s strengths and mitigate weaknesses. For instance, for jobs that require a lot of research and detail, people with high Fact Finder scores will be energized by the work.  While roles focused on administration and processes would be a joy for people with high Follow Thru, and they would ensure projects stay on track and are executed efficiently. Those with high Quick Start scores could be strategically placed in creative departments such as marketing and sales, where innovation is key. 

Improving Team Culture 

Embracing and respecting the diverse work styles of each team member fosters a culture of appreciation and collaboration. Rather than viewing differences as obstacles, celebrate them as unique contributions to the collective success. Recognize that every individual brings valuable skills to the table, and by leveraging these differences, multifamily property management teams can achieve superior results. 


So, here’s the bottom line; in the competitive landscape of multifamily property management, a high-performing team is just as indispensable to your success as choosing the best tax agent possible. By harnessing the insights provided by the Kolbe A Assessment, property owners and managers can assemble a powerhouse team primed for success. This tool not only aids in team formation but also unlocks the full potential of each member, driving innovation, productivity, and ultimately, success. Embrace the opportunity to optimize your team and propel your multifamily property management endeavors to new heights.
