My Specialties

Where I focus:

Appraisal Review

I enjoy working with other appraisers to solve valuation problems. All appraisers have different opinions. Working with them to figure out the best approach to solve a valuation issue is much better than dictating how it should be done.


I have a great deal of experience in working with clients to maximize their real estate investment. This comes from value engineering, demand / supply analysis and investment evaluations.


I have over 25 years of experience in appraising all types of commercial, residential and agricultural properties in the midwest.
