Since 1992, Specializing in residential properties including Rural and Horse Properties, Custom Homes, Proposed Construction, Residential Vacant Land, Manufactured Homes on acreage and tract and condominium homes.

One of the key comments I hear from potential clients is that appraisers don’t return calls and they aren’t willing to spend time to understand the client, their property and their needs. Maintaining a personalized service is what clients should expect from their professional real estate appraiser. If you are asking someone to assist in the valuation process of possibly your single largest investment you deserve to have a high level of customer support and the willingness to spend time with you. 

My appraisal career started in 1992, in the North County San Diego.  I then transferred to West Los Angeles under a new mentor. This opportunity helped me grow in the world of high end, luxury custom homes and proposed construction projects based on working in Beverly Hills, Beverly Glen, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and Malibu. After working with the new mentor for 2.5 years, it established a good appraisal foundation that enabled me to grow my own business in Temecula / Southwest Riverside County.

To expand my knowledge, I became an associate member with the Appraisal Institute (an appraisal organization) in 1994. In 1998, completed the state requirements for certified residential licensing, and serve on both the VA (Veterans Administration and FHA (Federal Housing Administration) panels. I assisted in the merger of the two San Diego chapters in 1999 and 2000 and served on the first Residential Council with the Appraisal Institute San Diego Chapter.  Serving on the board of IRWA Chapter 57 (Right of Way) from 2003 to 2010, it included being president of the chapter in 2009. I received the SRA, designation and the Litigation Certification in 2018 and 2019, respectively through the Appraisal Institute. 

My commitment to quality and service has been noted throughout my career by being honored by several organizations with distinguished service awards, based on my commitment to the industry.

Those honors and awards 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
