John J. Hentschel, CRE, MAI, FRICS

John J. Hentschel CRE, MAI, FRICS is founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hentschel Real Estate Services.  

For more than 3 decades, leaders in business, government, finance, and law, have benefited from his unique blend of interdisciplinary experience garnered from multiple perspectives.

Accomplished as an executive in both the public and private sectors, he has analyzed problems and made decisions from these distinctly different viewpoints. His experience as a former consumer of real estate valuation and advisory services has sensitized him to client needs when providing those same services. His work as a real estate author and educator, has not only provided him with a commanding knowledge of the discipline, conferring an authoritative credibility to his expert advice and opinions, but also has infused his practice with an academic rigor that enables him to communicate complex concepts in understandable terms. A mixture of domestic and international assignments has facilitated his application of novel ideas and concepts observed in one market to problems and opportunities in another. As an industry leader he is strategically positioned at the forefront of the profession to spot emerging opportunities, trends and developments.

Business and government leaders in the U.S. and abroad have relied on his astute skills as a real estate counselor and advisor to make difficult decisions, solve intractable problems, and seize strategic opportunities.

Although his expertise as an appraiser, expert witness and litigation strategist is often sought for large scale, unusual, or especially complex assignments, his valuation experience includes properties of virtually every type, size and complexity for use in support of litigation, financing, taxation, and business and government decision making.
