Home Appraisals You Can Rely On... Delivered On Time
“I remember this bi-level for sale in Springfield Twp., a prospective buyer hired me to perform an appraisal. After arriving and entering the home it was obvious something was off.
An MLS listing from a few months prior showed the home selling for $145,000--in the same condition. The seller was now asking $229,900.
I called the seller - a Realtor - to inquire about the previous sale and asked him if he made any improvements to the property. He said he remodeled the kitchen and bath and other items were replaced. It was obvious he was not being truthful.
While the market had changed, it hadn't changed that much. I completed the report and delivered it two days early to my client. Thankful to avoid a disaster, my client moved on and bought a different house at a fair price.
The role of an appraiser is to be objective and report the facts so our client can make an informed decision."

Since 2007 we having been performing residential appraisals in Lucas, Fulton & Wood County.
Residential properties include single family homes, 2-4 unit multi-family properties, condominiums, and vacant land.
Here's how we can help you:
✅ Pre-listing appraisals - The market is changing... Don't make uninformed decisions that could cost you thousands (or worse).
✅ Estate appraisals - Whether you need a current or retrospective value (based upon the date of death), we are sensitive to your needs during these difficult times.
✅ Divorce appraisals - Having a report that is credible and easily defended can give you an unfair advantage.
✅ Insurance appraisals - These can be complex and most clients require the cost approach if there has been a total loss. Fortunately, we have experience with these assignments.
✅ PMI Removal appraisals - Every lender is different. Please confirm (in writing) if your lender will accept a private appraisal for this Intended Use. Some do, some don't.
✅ Mortgage finance appraisals - We are on the preferred list for most banks and credit unions.
✅ Home measurement services - You'd be surprised at how inaccurate county records can be. Imagine if your home was a couple hundred square feet bigger than what the county shows? Do you think that would impact the value? And don't expect your Realtor to measure the house. Most will use what the county shows, even when there are glaring differences. (We see this on a weekly basis).
✅ Access to our private rolodex of VIPs - This is an exclusive benefit we only provide to our clients. Would you like a personal intro to an experienced and savvy Realtor who's a breeze to work with and consistently over-delivers? Need a reliable HVAC guy? How about a rock star plumber who shows up and does excellent work? We know people, and will share our trusted partners with you.
