Future Trainee

We plan on hiring a trainee appraiser sometime next year. 

Our Company Values

We provide peace in real estate transactions. Peace to a lender who is putting their money on the line, peace for a widow that just lost her husband, peace for a family that needs to take out money for a wedding or an addition to their home. [Philipians 4:7, Romans 16:20]

We value people and property. That value starts in the office. We value each other and we value our customers. We provide an essential service for our economy. Without us, banks could fail, people could lose their homes, and family members would face uncertain tax problems at the hardest time of their lives. [John 3:16, 2 Peter 3:19]

We produce expert reports. Staying close to the mindset of the local buyer is essential. We are speaking for them. We continually ask ourselves “Are we in tune with what they value?” [Philipians 2:14-16, Colossians 3:23]
