Victor has over 15 years of experience in project management, consulting, real estate research and investments.   Previous related work experience includes: analyst/associate positions in residential real estate development – Washington, DC – with a focus in the areas of real estate finance (discounted cash flow analysis/proprietary valuation modeling) and project management.
We are a locally owned, independent fee, residential real estate appraisal and consulting firm specializing in single-family, condominium, cooperative and multi-family income property in Washington, DC.   We offer residential appraisal products and consulting services for national mortgage companies, local lenders, homeowners, private practices, and investors.
We believe that a credible valuation begins with a highly-qualified, certified licensed appraiser, who is in tune with the local market environment and current sales trends.   We emphasize quality and clarity in our appraisal reports and understand that a well-articulated narrative supported by reliable data is critical to making a confident investment decision you can depend on.
Accurate and reliable data is always a chief concern and the task of complying with changing appraisal regulations introduces an additional level of complexity.   To help insure compliance with client-specific requirements, USPAP, UCDP, HVCC and other regulatory guidelines each appraisal assignment receives an automated rules-based engine review and is subsequently hand-reviewed by an experienced appraiser prior to delivery.
We adhere to the highest quality USPAP standards and use the latest appraisal software technology.  Our web-based management platform supports compliance, ordering, fulfillment and customized reporting requirements.   We offer secure delivery via our website, direct interface and third-party portals.

Step 1: Request an Appraisal
In order for us to begin an appraisal we must first receive a written request; this can be completed online by placing an order here or through emailing our office.   Institutional clients can place orders directly through our order management platform or third party portal.
Step 2: Work-Up Order
Once we have determined the appropriate report to meet your needs we can begin our preliminary market research on the subject property and comparable homes in the neighborhood.   Next we schedule an appointment to conduct a thorough site-inspection, keeping all interested parties informed of the date and time of our visit.
Step 3: Property Inspection
Inspection times vary depending on the size and complexity of the property, but will usually take an appraiser between twenty minutes to one hour.   A standard appraisal inspection includes an interior walk-through of all levels, an exterior walk around the property, interior/exterior photos, and a sketch of the floor plan with exterior dimensions.   During the inspection we take notes about specific details of the property and its overall condition.
Step 4: Comparable Research
Following each inspection our appraisers will typically spend some time canvassing the neighborhood.   This is done so that we may assess any neighborhood factors that could potentially influence our valuation and so that we may photograph comparable property sales and current listings that we have selected for our report.
Step 5: Report Writing
Here is when the magic happens!   Writing a credible appraisal report using a clear and articulate narrative takes expertise and time.   During this stage in the process we organize and analyze all of the data that we have collected in support of our valuation.   This is where an experienced state licensed appraiser who lives in Washington, DC can really make a difference.
Step 6: Delivery
To help insure compliance with client-specific requirements and regulatory guidelines each assignment receives an automated rules-based engine review and is subsequently hand-reviewed by an experienced appraiser prior to delivery.   We use the latest appraisal software and a comprehensive order management platform to deliver or reports quickly and in the format you require.
My husband and I were very pleased; the turnaround time was quick and the report was thorough and easy to follow. If we ever need another appraisal they’re getting our repeat business.
