As a certified general real estate appraiser, it is my job to provide comprehensive research and analysis for each property which I engage in the valuation of. In addition to ongoing research and database management, significant time is spent on each appraisal for the research and analysis of specific factors which may affect value.

An appraiser needs to be well informed with relevant data resources, technology,  education and experience. I have made it an important part of my career to seek out the best possible appraisal tools, education, resources and training available. With years of commercial valuation experience and hundreds of hours of education which are specific to real estate appraisal, I can provide the high level of professional service you require.    

Technology and resources available to the appraiser have significantly advanced within recent years. By utilizing these technologies and providing comprehensive research, I will be able to deliver appraisal reports which convey better understanding of current market conditions, developing trends, and individual components of value for each property type.
