Helmsing Leach partner Casey Pipes led a Counselors of Real Estate (CRE®) Consulting Corps team the week of April 17, 2023, in Knoxville, Tenn. for the benefit of the City of Knoxville and the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors. The assignment was to assist in creating a strategy to redevelop and revitalize Knoxville’s South waterfront area. The CRE® Consulting Corps is a public service program of The Counselors of Real Estate that provides real estate analysis and action plans for municipalities, not-for-profit organizations, government entities, educational institutions, and other owners of real property. Each Consulting Corps assignment is conducted by a team of members of the Counselors of Real Estate with expertise specific to the needs of the client, and all team members volunteer their time. The team delivers unbiased, market-driven action steps to address a real estate challenge, often enhancing the performance of a property or portfolio and improving the financial well-being of the client. This assignment called for Casey and his team to be in Knoxville from Sunday through Friday. The final report is available here.
