“We’re not saying that we are the best cell tower lease experts in the United States, we’re just stating the obvious, that we haven’t spoken with any that were smarter.”
Surprised about other cell “tower experts”?
Don’t be. We can’t blame the competition for trying to get into the cell tower lease consulting industry, but when you take a closer look there are less than a handful of companies who actually would qualify as subject matter experts in this specialized field.
Yes, here at Tower Genius LLC both partners, Kevin Donohue and Steve Kazella have also served as expert witnesses for clients in cell tower lease related lawsuits, and have both been qualified as subject matter experts concerning cell tower infrastructure, site management, real estate site acquisition, telecommunications zoning and matters pertaining to determining cell tower rent values.
We’re not looking for that kind of work, but sometimes it still finds us.
Many cell tower consulting services firms do not list the names of their owners or partners. Why is that?
Don’t they want you to know who you are calling? You can save yourself a lot of future pain by vetting your cell tower expert before you hire them. Any company that operates in the shadows or does not give you bios of their consultants should cause you to ask, “why not”?
Does your cell tower lease advisor have a verifiable LinkedIn profile?
It is possible that you might not have a LinkedIn profile page, but you can still ask a friend or somebody that you know to do a search for you on specific company or individual on LinkedIn so you can see if they post any relative content or if their profile is “rather thin” or even have one at all? Tower Genius is on LinkedIn and you can easily verify that both Kevin F. Donohue and Steve Kazella have extensive wireless telecom careers.
Verify your cell tower consultant’s Facebook page.
We’re not huge facebook fans, but for better or for worse, facebook is the “virtual town square” of our time. Does the cell tower lease company have a facebook page and what have they posted there? Makes you wonder, eh? Here is ours.
We left the best for last. Check out the competition’s Google Business Reviews… if you can find them.
Credibility matters. Half of “cell site experts” don’t even have a Google Business Listing. We suppose you can’t get bad reviews if you don’t have a listing. See for yourself. And the ones who do have reviews that sound like they were written by the waitress at Waffle House. Decide for yourself if the cell tower consultant reviews are real or fake and then compare them to the authentic Tower Genius reviews shared by real clients.
When you compare cell phone tower lease experts, there really is no comparison. Calling Tower Genius for 5 minutes won’t cost you anything. Calling Tower Genius for a 30-minute discovery consultation call will cost you $29.99. However… not calling Tower Genius might cost you a small fortune.
