Residential Real Estate Appraisal Services

I am a State Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser, appraising in the Greater Cleveland area.  Since 1998, I have performed over 7,500 residential real estate appraisals. I work full time as an independent fee appraiser for banks, attorneys, lenders, investors and homeowners. I have experience in appraising vacant land and residential properties, two to four family properties and complex properties such as luxury homes.


I am a member of the National Association of Appraisers (NAA). I am also a proud member of OCAP(Ohio Coalition of Appraisal Professionals), and an active  member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the Ohio Association of Realtors (OAR) and the Akron/Cleveland Association of REALTORS(ACAR). 

On a semi-monthly basis, I write articles in my blog, at, covering issues related to the real estate profession. My articles have been published in several printed and on-line appraisal magazines. My blog is followed by individuals around the country. I also host a podcast called Home Value Stories where I discuss real estate topics. 

An appraiser is hired to develop a supportable opinion of value. Anyone can come up with a number. Professional appraisers are trained to develop an opinion of value by means of specialized training, detailed data analysis, research, and using state-of- the-art tools.
