The Chelepis team is comprised of CPAs, attorneys, engineers, and commercial real estate specialists, making us leaders in lease, utility, and construction audit and consulting services throughout the country.

Chelepis creates and maintains measurable solutions for our clients through consulting, audit, and cost saving programs. Chelepis distinguishes itself with the ability to negotiate favorable settlements on complex issues. Often, due to budgetary and time constraints, corporate real estate departments lack the depth of expertise needed to properly execute audits and cost saving initiatives. That’s why, with over 30 years of experience, Chelepis is invaluable to our clients. Chelepis has recovered over $250 Million for our clients through our  lease auditing programs, utility savings strategies and consulting services.

Tracy Chelepis founded Chelepis & Associates in 1987. With his financial analysis skills and fascination with the industry, Tracy led the company into a  practice concentrating on commercial real estate. At the request of a client, Chelepis & Associates began the specialized practice of real estate lease auditing, and through the years, has developed a process and expertise that's resulted in savings and cost recoveries for our clients.
