What Our Clients Are Saying…

I called Tom to get an appraisal on my property before embarking on a remodel project. Over the course of our 40 minute phone call, he was so informative about what the market likes in terms of finishes, what I can expect as a return on my investment, how a remodel works in terms of what buyers want and he even sent me a list of comps for my area, which was way above and beyond what he needed to do. He graciously took time out of his day to talk to me so that I can make the best informed decisions possible. He is extremely knowledgeable and I really appreciated his input!! I would highly recommend him and plan on using him in the future!! Thanks Tom!! M. G.

Tom is an experienced SRA certified residential appraiser and a pleasure to work with. His final report is detailed and thorough . I would highly recommend him for all your residential appraisal needs. Thanks Tom! Anthony Edillo

I have know Tom professionally for the last 14 years, He has earned a reputation of being both timely, and extremely thorough, providing his clients with the confidence of trusting his work, reports, and valuations. When I recently needed a trusted appraiser for some personal business, I asked several experienced associates of mine for their recommendations and Tom’s name was always on the short list. We selected Tom to perform two appraisals on two rather difficult properties to value. Tom was quick to respond, easy to work with, prompt to the inspection appointments, and provided thorough reports in the time frame agreed to. He carefully explained each, and patiently answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone seeking the services of a truly professional appraiser. Barry Henry
