Appraisals and Consultations
We have completed countless residential and commercial appraisals with our expertise — focusing primarily on geographic areas of Northern Illinois located west of Route 47. Our knowledge and database go back for more than 30 years. It is this tremendous resource that serves as a foundation for many additional assignments. We have completed assignments for the following purposes:
- Estate Planning
- Litigation/Expert Witness
- Real Estate Assessment (Taxes)
Our senior staff members have obtained the SRA designation through the Appraisal Institute. This is a graduate-level curriculum, which includes a written demonstration appraisal report and attaining 2,000 hours of qualifying experience beyond state certification requirements. SRA-designated members are recognized experts in appraising residential properties of all kinds.
Our quality is a necessary component, and we also appreciate the need our clients have for fast turnaround times and reasonable pricing. Our location, combined with our investment in technology, helps us fulfill these needs.
