What Others Are Saying About Us

“I have worked with the principals of Chesapeake since the inception of Cinnaire in 1993. They have proven to be the most highly skilled and knowledgeable group of professionals we have ever worked with in this industry. Their creative and entrepreneurial approach to real estate development and finance have made them the number one choice for Cinnaire to assist us in complex and difficult real estate transactions. The use of Chesapeake in our Housing Tax Credit Year 15 disposition strategies has produced results for our investors that were beyond their expectations and has been a model we use in all of our disposition strategies. They are real estate experts extraordinaire with the added benefit of being socially minded. They not only care about the investor and owner benefits but also take into account a positive outcome for the residents.”
