Women in Real Estate 2019: Inland Property Tax’s Tracy Le Empowers Her Employees
With nearly 20 years’ experience in commercial real estate financial, accounting and property taxes, Tracy Le oversees Inland Property Tax Services (IPTS), a national property tax consulting firm based in Oak Brook, IL. On a diverse portfolio of more than $5 billion taxable market value of commercial real estate properties, Le has led IPTS in saving its clients in excess of $46 million in annual taxes.
One of Le’s primary responsibilities is to work closely with Inland Real Estate Acquisitions LLC, the acquisition division of Inland. Her creative and analytic thinking, effective communication and attention to detail are instrumental in strategically performing a structured transaction to benefit Inland ownership and its investors.
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Le as one of the 2019 Women in Real Estate Award winners. Connect Media’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of women who have reached respected positions of leadership and play key mentorship roles for others.
Le’s steadfast belief in fostering and empowering each of her employees to go beyond their roles and learn every aspect of property tax, has successfully led IPTS through the ebbs and flows of various economic and real estate cycles. By preparing lessons and giving her staff the tools and education to perform a variety of tasks, she has created a team that works efficiently and takes accountability and responsibility for the group’s work as a whole.
