One of our goals is to be viewed as an extension of our client’s staff versus an outside financial advisor. The firm focuses solely on providing independent financial advisory services, which eliminates the conflict of underwriting a client’s bonds or managing assets. Our effort goes beyond the specific transaction.
LongEDA is one of the most experienced financial advisory firms concerning real estate and sales tax TIF bonds in the U.S., having completed TIF projects in each of the last five decades in over ten states, including the $250 million Flats East Bank Redevelopment Project in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
