With over 75 years of collective transaction experience, we have the expertise and relationships necessary to deliver timely, value-added solutions for our clients. 

We adhere to our core values of hard work, integrity and relationships in everything we do and manage all aspects of an engagement to ensure a successful outcome. While numbers are our business, we firmly believe that not everything that counts can be counted.  We focus on the interpersonal relationships that can bolster or compromise a deal depending on the circumstances.

C Squared Gives Back

At C Squared, we believe in giving back to causes and charities that are important not only to us but also to our clients. C Squared Gives Back was established to provide a different way to expand our charitable work to include our clients. The initiative provides the C Squared principals and our clients the opportunity to help organizations in the communities where we work and live. As part of the program, we designate a portion of transaction success fees to charitable organizations with clients directing half of all donated funds to a charity of their choice.
