We're a Local, Independent Real Estate Appraisal Firm
10 reasons why we're the right firm for your appraisal...
|How we're different||Why it matters to you|
|We never use appraiser trainees or assistants||Most appraisal firms, especially those with the lowest fees, use inexperienced appraiser trainees (“licensed appraiser assistants”) to do your appraisal start to finish, with little or no supervision.|
|We guarantee our work||Most appraisers don’t. Knowing that your appraisal will not be challenged or rejected is as important as knowing it is accurate. We guarantee our appraisal reports will meet the standards and requirements of the authority you’ll be submitting it to (court, IRS, or government agency), and be accepted by that authority.|
|Each of our staff has a minimum 10 years’ real estate appraisal experience||Real estate appraisal is as much art as it is science, and experience really matters. While it takes nearly 3 years to earn a license as an appraiser, many more years are required to become highly proficient.|
|Real estate appraisals for legal, tax-related, and private uses is all we do||Most appraisers have no experience doing appraisals for anything other than mortgages, where a target value is provided by the bank. Hiring these appraisers increases your odds of getting a bad appraisal that is wrong and could be challenged or rejected.|
|NY State Certified Real Estate Appraisers||Each of our appraisers has attained the highest level of licensure a residential real estate appraiser can achieve from the New York State Division of Licensing Services, which regulates and oversees our profession.|
|IRS Qualified||We are Qualified Appraisers according to IRS standards and specifications.|
|Court-Appointed||Our appraisal firm is routinely appointed by New York Court Judges to act as the neutral appraiser for both parties in matters before the Court.|
|Our appraisal reports are accepted by Medicaid and Immigration||All appraisal reports we produce meet or exceed the standards and requirements set forth by Medicaid for asset reporting purposes, and by the Dept. of Homeland Security for Immigration Sponsor asset reporting.|
|We have been screened and approved by trusted independent quality assurance organizations||In addition to the NY State authorities which regulate our profession, we have also been screened and approved by trusted private organizations including Service Magic™ and Home Advisor™.|
|We are recognized as experts in our industry||Our expertise has be sought out and cited by local and national media. We’ve been quoted in The New York Times, AOL Real Estate, Yahoo Real Estate, and Housing Predictor—to name a few.|

“…I would recommend you enthusiastically to anyone…”
Recently you appraised a condo that my husband and I were interested in buying. Given the crazy real-estate market, we knew we could not trust the appraisal that would be provided by a lender, so we wanted a truly independent appraisal. As neither of us had a clue how to go about finding and appraiser in NYC, we simply turned to the Internet. Picking someone from the web always seems to be a chancy proposition. However, in this case our choice was excellent. In every way you impressed me with your professionalism and knowledge. You returned my initial call promptly. You arrived on time. You did a very through job at in inspecting the condo. At the end, my daughter did her best to get you to give a "ballpark" estimate on the spot, but I was very pleased to see that you insisted that you could not provide a meaningful estimate until you had all the information in hand. We received the appraisal report 3 days after the appraisal and it was extremely detailed. And all this for a very reasonable price. I would recommend you enthusiastically to anyone I know who needed an appraisal in NYC.Sarah Lenington, PhD
