We are SBPTA

We have assembled a group of professionals at SBPTA to ensure an orderly appeal process. Researchers, administrative assistants and client relation specialists have been assembled to ensure a smooth appeal process for our clients. During the appeal process, you will likely be contacted by some, if not all members of our team.

Each member of our team will focus on certain elements of the appeal process. To ensure the best results from your appeal, please provide information requested, if any, in a timely manner. Our team is available and will respond to your inquiries as soon as possible. If anyone on our team does not have the answer, then they will coordinate with the appropriate team member and get back to you.

You as the property owner, know your property better than anyone and your input will likely be needed to ensure the best possible results. We look forward to working with you and ask that you sign up for your Free Property Analysis.
