Certified General Real Property Appraiser - MN License No. 20306483

My highest priority to the intended users of my work is providing effective communication of how I arrived at my opinion so they can make informed decisions suited to their motivations. I have experience as an expert witness in litigation related assignments and also have performed numerous appraisals related to financing, estate planning/taxation, and also determining the reasonableness of the assessor’s estimated market value on properties.
