Industry Experts Combined With Financial Strength, Integrity And Independence.
For cell site owners seeing to capitalize on the financial potential of their cellular sites, the industry experts at Crescendo offer objectivity, flexibility and a shared vision that you won’t find anywhere else. The reasons are obvious:
- Crescendo purchases and manages cellular assets for its own account. We invest for our own account. We have the capital. When you speak to us, you are talking to the decision makers, not a broker looking to lock up your asset while trying to re-trade your deal. Brokers waste your time and money.
- We are independent and are not affiliated with your tenants. Many landowners have been approached to sell their cellular assets by firms who have formed alliances with tower companies and cellular tenants for the hidden purpose of reducing the rent on your property. When you choose Crescendo to be your cell lease partner, our interests are aligned with yours-maximizing the long-term value of your assets.
- Many landlords have been inundated by high pressure sales tactics of boiler room phone call operations trying to highjack your assets. Our professionals are industry experts who are will take the time to explain our win-win approach to business.
Our management team offers a wealth of experience in financial services, telecommunications, law and real estate. Most importantly, our cellular lease industry experts bring a relentless desire to provide unique solutions that will maximize the potential of cellular and billboard lease holdings for both private and public sector property owners.
