Areas of Expertise
Expert Witness Testimony
While our full range of real estate valuation and consulting services encompass a broad spectrum of property types, we are also experienced in litigation support. Clients who have used our services include corporations, individuals, government agencies, financial institutions and legal/accounting firms. Our ethical, independent, supportable and empirical analysis usually allows clients to settle cases and avoid costly litigation.
While appraisers must remain unbiased when performing any property appraisal, we can consult with and advise you about the relative strength of appraisals presented by opposing parties. We can also perform additional research and analysis to support or refute the opposition's assumptions and/or conclusions.
Some examples of issues on which we can provide support include:
Valuation as of a date in the past
Complex residential properties (unique design, award-winning architect, etc.)
Valuation for taxation, condemnation and eminent domain cases
Valuation for divorce, partnership, business acquisition issues etc.
Our broad general business acumen and proven track record provide us with a unique perspective regarding most types of valuation and consulting assignments. That foundation, combined with our ethics, diligence and commitment to our clients, allows our valuations and consulting to withstand the most severe scrutiny.
