TBG offers a range of professional services delivered from a platform with clear distinctions in the marketplace.

TBG focuses on the resolution of critical, confidential and often urgent issues related to executive compensation, governance, organization and operations – guiding solutions through recommendations established from years of experience and insightful analysis. TBG focuses exclusively on the real estate industry, and the range of services it offers are not conflicted or compromised by other services such as accounting/tax, financing, executive search, or mergers/ corporate transactions.

TBG is comprised exclusively of experienced professionals committed to your success. We are not overly focused on “what everyone else does,” instead, believing that that such reference points are only one of many possible starting points for an effective solution to an issue in your company. Our approach and analysis are unique for each assignment. We are not constrained by generic “Programs” force fit to the circumstances of your organization, or to standard management reports.

Most importantly, we are professionals experienced in the often difficult reality of implementing change designed from TBG recommendations. We are committed to the highest professional standards, your company’s success, and your competitive advantage.
