Religious, Education, & Nonprofit

Though it may only happen once or twice during the lifetime of a congregation, buying or selling a religious facility is one of the most important – yet challenging – endeavors a congregation will undertake.

More than a building

The same holds true for a neighborhood school or other nonprofit organizations. The reason is simple. Emotional ties to the building itself are born from years – often lifetimes – of memories made there.
