SMH has worked with numerous municipalities, counties, utility companies and developers establishing and acquiring easements for public projects of all sorts. Their extensive knowledge of the Uniform Act for Real Property Acquisition has been utilized to the benefit of many projects both State and Federal. SMH’s proven processes for acquisition negotiation have worked time and time again. These same processes have been reviewed by various auditing agencies and found to be rock solid in meeting the requirements of the Uniform Act for Real Property Acquisition. SMH can also help with suggestions for process if the Uniform Act is not required.
The SMH Acquisition Team is the most well-qualified team of individuals to conduct the property acquisition services available in Kansas. This team made up of attorneys from Morrison, Frost, Olsen, Irvine, Jackson & Schartz LLP; appraisers from both the Simmons Company and David Craig and Company; and surveyors and an acquisition agent from SMH Consultants that have all worked together in the recent past on property acquisitions involving the Uniform Act. The experience this team brings to a project and the fact that we are all familiar with working together only enhances the Team’s ability to perform the necessary services for any City, County, or other agency requiring property acquisition.
