Welcome!

This page explains a few important points to know about a family law appraisal, which may include a divorce appraisal, expert witness testimony, estate appraisal, or probate appraisal. There are vast differences that you should be aware of.

I take appraising to an uncommon level of excellence. My appraisals include additional levels of work in order to create appraisals that all parties will respect for the quality and quantity of analysis and support they contain.

You have options to deliver professional family law appraisal expertise to your clients.

Every family law appraisal is unique and every appraisal needs to be handled with great attention to detail. In family law appraisal work especially, appraisals need to be handled with care, civility, and understanding. We are likely dealing with the largest financial investment in someone’s life at a difficult time in their life.  Count on my extensive experience since 2001 to handle all cases, regardless of complexity.

family law appraisal quote from Einstein

Division and/or disposition of real property in a divorce is one of the most complicated and important division of assets. The valuation of community property assets is paramount to negotiating equitable settlements. There is a need for different types of property valuations: fair market value, retrospective appraisals to determine fair market value at various times of ownership, as well as the allocation of value to specific improvements that have been made to community or separate property. 

Don’t be misled by appraisers that have the most years of experience, or that have the most credentials, or even belong to the most organizations. Judge an appraiser on the quality and the complexity of their work. My work stands on its own and says more than any resume ever could. Excellence!

The expertise I have gained from appraising the most beautiful and unique homes has elevated and refined my skill set so that I can appraise any home in any market area in precise detail, through every phase of the appraisal. Click here for more information about appraisal criteria.

Finding an appraiser is easy. Finding an appraiser that fully understands and can read the market is another thing entirely. I was appraising complex homes when I had only been an appraiser for five years. I had achieved excellent progressive experience, which is vastly superior to the same experience repeated multiple times. Since I have been appraising from 2001, my mastery of appraising has allowed me to appraise many unique homes, and homes in the most complicated of situations, such as divorce appraisals, expert witness testimony, probate appraisals, IRS appraisals, and estate valuations.
