Invoke Tax Partners Promotes John Vanderah to National Director of High Volume Real Estate

March 2021 – Invoke Tax Partners is excited to announce the promotion of John Vanderah to National Director of High Volume Real Estate. Since joining Invoke as part of the AVTI acquisition in early 2020, John has been an essential piece during the integration of the two practices, ensuring a smooth transition and delivery of services. Drawing on his more than 35 years of experience, John will lead Invoke’s national high-volume commercial real estate practice by managing and growing a team of consultants and implementing operational best practices in order to optimize service for our clients with significant property counts under management.

“As we looked for the right candidate to lead the high volume real estate group, we quickly realized that the absolute best person for the job was already working within Invoke,” said James Sutton, Partner and National Director of Property Tax. “John brings 35+ years of experience working across the country and we could not be more excited for our high volume consultants to get to learn from one of the best in the industry. John’s client-first approach coupled with his relentless pursuit of the best possible value for our clients will lend itself to fantastic results both internally and externally.”

John joined AVTI right out of college after interning for an M.A.I. in Minneapolis during his senior year. Ten years after helping open the Los Angeles office, John moved to Chicago to become a Principal of the firm and spent the next 20+ years keeping AVTI on the leading edge of technology and best practices. His experience with a long-term, North American-wide client base has produced a unique perspective of the real estate industry both geographically and across the corporate ownership spectrum. John’s comprehensive understanding of the operational needs and financial motivations of property stakeholders makes him an invaluable resource to his clients and colleagues.

“I am honored and excited to take on the role of leading Invoke’s high-volume real estate practice,” said John Vanderah, National Director of High Volume Real Estate. “I take great pride in designing procedures and mentoring consultants, something that is at the core of our mission to provide an exciting and challenging environment that attracts and retains the best talent. Continuous pursuit of this mission leads to our end-goal of exceeding our client’s expectations, something this group will strive for every day.”
