Since 2004, Steel in the Air has helped over 3,000 clients nationwide to negotiate favorable leases against wireless carriers, lease buyout and tower companies. We also provide lease valuation and asset management services to small tower owners, appraisers, and investors. Over the past decade, along with our partner, SteelTree Partners, we have assisted in the brokerage of over $800 million in wireless assets.
Steel in the Air is a trusted authority in the cell tower and wireless communications industry, and we are known to provide reliable, fair-market valuations using proprietary, comparable sales data comprised of more than seven years of transactions. We are regularly retained by investment banks and investment groups for our analysis of current market trends and historical sales and lease data. We have unparalleled access to ground level information because we are the first point of contact when it comes to the development of new cell sites. Since we don’t work for wireless carriers, lease buyout companies, or lease optimization companies (and aren’t obligated by their NDAs), we can readily discuss the anecdotal information we receive about who is doing what and where. We keep close tabs on what is occurring in the industry so that our clients do not have to.
Cell towers are originally built with a certain capacity in mind. Some are built to house singular carriers, while others are built to support multiple carriers. As such, their values vary a great deal.
