Mark and Tim Cantrell, along with Bobby McCulloch, founded Cantrell McCulloch, Inc. (CMI) in December 2000. In their opinion, most traditional tax consulting firms were not thorough enough in their evaluations and overall level of service. From the beginning, CMI succeeded in reducing property taxes for clients that had unsatisfactory results using larger, more established firms. Even clients that appeared to have low assessments found that CMI often reduced valuations significantly in the first year of representation. Today, many well known and respected multifamily companies trust CMI with their property tax issues. In 2013, CMI represented over $5 billion in property assessments for multifamily alone, resulting in actual tax savings to our clients of over $20 million. Bobby, Mark and Tim have a unique multifamily background involving brokerage, ownership, management, construction, appraisal, and accounting allowing them the ability to determine the optimum approach to pursue when negotiating with the appraisal district. And their motivational philosophy is evident with each CMI consultants compensation being directly related to the results they generate.
