n Certified Residential Real Property Appraiser
I created Appraisal Minnesota to facilitate ease of use in the appraisal process for both the mortgage lender and the appraiser. I have had many positive learning experiences and am using them to make appraisal work more efficient and accurate. I have experience in all facets of the appraisal business from working with lenders all the way to training people who have never before touched a computer! I have a network of certified appraisers who cover the eight county metro area. I am concerned with quality and accuracy in all areas of appraisal and my people have a thorough understanding of the principles and practices required.
