Advisory Services

Since our founding in 1976, Greenfield Advisors’ principals have been involved in complex real estate matters throughout the world. Our expertise has guided residential subdivision development, implementation of urban villages, low-income housing development, brownfield redevelopment, and bankruptcy workouts. Our analysts have spoken at the invitation of dozens of organizations, including both the American Bar Association and the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the financial aspects of brownfields.

Feasibility Studies

Our approach to feasibility studies is grounded in three concepts: market feasibility, economic feasibility, and financial feasibility. The first asks the question, “If we build it, will they come?” The second, “If we build it, and they come, will they pay us?” The third asks, “If we build it, and they come, and they pay us, will it be profitable?” This approach is at the core of the highest and best use study, and it is one of the first steps in all complex real estate development decisions. Our feasibility studies have paved the way for urban villages in Washington and shopping centers in South Carolina. Some of our other successes, of course, are projects that didn’t happen because of our timely warning. In today’s environment, the difference between boilerplate reports and true analysis can also be the difference between failure and success.
