Verizon Wireless
Cell Tower Lease Experts


By Steve Kazella, Verizon Wireless Cell Tower Lease Genius.

We are the company that keeps Verizon Wireless real estate managers awake at night. And we are the Verizon cell tower lease consultants that their real estate site acquisition representatives cry about on their status calls. Why? Because we have been helping property owners like you deal with them successfully for over a decade.

If you are a property owner or cell tower landlord and you have you been contacted regarding by Verizon Wireless regarding a proposal to develop a cell tower on your property, or to put a Verizon cell site on your building's roof, or even lease space for a Verizon Wireless small cell for 5G, you're probably wondering what is the lease going to be worth?

You may also be wondering, is the Verizon Wireless tower leasing acquisition  consultant making me a fair offer, or are they making me a low-ball offer?

What is the fair market rent value of a Verizon cell tower at this location?

Can I find a list of Verizon cell tower rental "comps?"

What is my next step with the Verizon Wireless leasing representative?

Landowners, perhaps you’ve been approached by Verizon Wireless to have an expiring cell tower lease extended for a number of years or a company like American Tower is looking to purchase the cell tower lease rental stream from you and is making you an offer for a perpetual lease buyout or easement?

Need Help With Your Verizon Cell Tower Lease?
Look No Further.  

Verizon Wireless is the leading wireless carrier for the construction of newly built cell phone towers in the USA. A Verizon Wireless cell tower lease is a complex contract that is heavily slanted in favor of the carrier, and not towards you, the landlord or property owner.  One can imagine, that a company like Verizon Wireless is not going to spend upwards of one hundred thousand dollars on legal expenses, design and zoning to get the site approved by your municipality and a few hundred thousand dollars more building a cell tower without a rock-solid cell tower lease in place.

The Partners of Tower Genius, Kevin Donohue and Steve Kazella, are extremely familiar with Verizon's lease agreements, the strategies and tactics that they use in lease negotiations as we both used to work as cell tower site acquisition project managers overseeing hundreds and hundreds (actually more than that) of Verizon cell towers that were built form initial site identification through lease negotiations,  zoning and construction. Our wireless industry insider knowledge can greatly benefit you in a cell tower negotiation with the carrier. 

You should also avoid the 10 biggest blunders property owners make when negotiating a Verizon Wireless Cell Tower Lease Agreement.

Cell Tower Lease Experts who used to lease sites for VZW.

You have a choice to make when presented with a Verizon tower lease agreement. Almost always, property owners and building owners who play hardball with Verizon Wireless leases end up on the losing end of the battle and the carrier often walks away from the deal if there are other potential alternate sites or locations available. It's important to determine how much leverage that you have.

Cell tower leasing is a cat and mouse game. You have to know where you have room to negotiate, and you have to know what language is off-limits to negotiation with Verizon. Most attorneys who have not negotiated any or have only seen very few cell tower leases often times negotiate their clients right out of a deal because of the language they attempt to add or remove from the lease.  These are not typical commercial lease agreements. This is especially true with Verizon Wireless cellular leases.

If you will be negotiating a cell site lease with Verizon Wireless, talk to us first. We have seen hundreds of Verizon Wireless cellular tower and rooftop leases, and we can help guide you to get a fair deal. Our wireless leasing professionals will review and analyze your Verizon lease and can turn around the lease in one business day in most cases with comments for you and your attorney.

We can help you with our cell tower lease transactional coaching expertise helpful for you to negotiate terms that will maximize your revenues and ensure profitable future co-location on your Verizon Wireless cell tower lease.
