Good Real Estate Accountant/Lawyer in NYC

4 Replies

I'm just getting started in real estate investing, and I'm based in New York City.  I'll probably be doing most of my investing activities out of state; however, I'd love to get a great accountant and/or lawyer to help me get set up with the right legal entities, banking, etc. so I can get started.

Anyone have good recommendations?  Or, even if you use someone out of state but you're based in NYC, I'd love to hear from you too.

What part of NYC are you located in? I am over in the upper east side. 

Have you decided where you will be investing in?
I argue that you prolly want to connect with a real estate agent and lender in the area that you are looking at first before you start thinking CPA/Attorney.

If you are just starting out - you may benefit from attending some local real estate networking events. It can also be a great opportunity to network and see who people are using as a CPA/Attorney.
These events can also give you an idea on where people are investing in.

 I'd love to attend some of these events!  Which ones do you recommend here around NYC?
