As a Certified Residential appraiser, I have the education and qualifications to provide professional appraisals that lenders, accountants, attorneys, estate planners, homeowners and investors require.  With over 23 years of real estate experience behind me, I’m prepared to handle a variety of property types. I have a BS degree in business with a major in information systems. I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1990 and wrote my first appraisal report in 1989.  My office is in the city of West Sacramento (Yolo County) just a couple of miles from downtown Sacramento.  I also prepare commercial assignments with a certified general appraiser. 

Lenders and AMCs:  I am on the FHA roster and Flagstar approved.

    Whether you email or call me, I'll need some facts about the potential assignment.  What is the purpose of the appraisal?  If it's for a loan check with you lender first.  Did your attorney or CPA direct you to get an appraisal?  How quickly do you need it completed?  And please tell me the basics about the property.  Address, type (residential or commercial) and is there anything unusual about it?  Getting the facts before accepting an assignment makes good business sense and is required by ethical guidelines. 

     Thank You!
