Expertise & Experience
Maxis Advisors provides valuable expertise and experience for comprehensive incentive negotiations, real estate advisory, site selection, and compliance.
We evaluate a variety of factors that help determine the best way to package and present your next expansion, relocation, merger, or realignment. Working with Maxis Advisors ensures the best incentives opportunities available.
Maxis Advisors uses an effective, non-adversarial negotiation approach. The Maxis Advisors team works with state and local governments to increase and identify all incentives, while ensuring positive relationships among parties. The negotiations focus on “impact incentives,” which directly affect project ROI by reducing up-front capital costs and on-going operational costs.
Some examples of impact incentives include cash grants, tax abatements, land/lease subsidization, infrastructure support, utility rate reductions, payroll reimbursements, and job training grants.
Maxis Advisors’ skilled representation during complex incentive negotiations allows companies to focus on their core business. Here are some examples of how we represent our clients.
- Presenting the project properly to government officials.
- Identifying and evaluating all incentive programs.
- Correctly outlining the true value of an incentive package.
- Illustrating clearly the differences between incentive programs.
- Identifying project costs that can be directly offset by incentives.

The report will contain comprehensive community and business cost data as it relates to up-front and on-going operational costs, as well as other decision-making factors.
