My firm, Straw Hat Enterprises, is a professional valuation and consultation service business for residential properties including residential vacant land throughout Southwest Riverside County, (Temecula Valley)  and North San Diego County, since 1992. I Specialize in  IRS Estate Appraisal matters, Rural and Horse Properties, Residential Litigation, Vacant Land Appraisals, Divorce / Family Law matters, Wild Fire Cases, Private Party transactions including Consulting and Appraisals, plus mortgage lending. 

I complete appraisals, valuations and consultations on Custom Homes, Horse Ranches, Residential  Vacant Land, Manufactured Homes, Proposed Construction, as well as tract homes and condominiums. 

My appraisal career started in the North County San Diego area and then moved to West Los Angeles with a new mentor. This opportunity in 1992, helped me grow in the world of high end, luxury custom and proposed construction projects due to my work in Beverly Hills, Beverly Glen, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and Malibu. Working with the new mentor for 2.5 years, provided me with good a foundation and background that enable me to start and grow my own business in Temecula / Southwest Riverside County.

I started as an associate member with an appraisal organization in 1994, known as the Appraisal Institute.  I assisted in the merger of the two San Diego chapters in 1999 and 2000 and served on the first Residential Council Board with the Appraisal Institute San Diego Chapter. Through all the years, classroom work and continuing education I received the SRA, designation and my Litigation Certification. 

I reached the certified residential level in 1998, (highest level of licensing for a residential appraiser), I have been approved by the VA (Veterans Administration) and the FHA (Federal Housing Administration) to serve on their panels. I take pride in maintaining a personalized service that clients should expect from their professional real estate appraiser. Because of my service level I have been able to maintain a strong business position through three recessions, primarily due to my commitment to quality, service, integrity and a willingness to take on the difficult assignments. 

My commitment to quality and service has been noted throughout my career with very graciously being honored by several organizations, based on my commitment to serve. 

Those acknowledgements include; 

International Right of Way organization (IRWA)- Chapter 57 Sustained Service Award 2009
IRWA Chapter 57 Professional of the Year 2005
IRWA Chapter 57 New Member Service Award 2004
Appraisal Institute Distinguished Service Award 2001
