Our firm has two appraisal divisions, commercial and residential. The commercial assignments run the gamut from shopping centers, athletic facilities, office and industrial buildings, subdivisions (single family/duplex/condominium), restaurants, golf courses, hotels/motels, medical facilities, gas stations, mixed use properties, churches, mobile home parks, and unimproved land. The residential assignments include single family dwellings, two to four family multi-families, small apartment buildings, mixed use properties, condominiums, and residential house lots. Our clients include local and regional financial institutions, attorneys, accountants, developers, municipal, state and federal agencies and individuals.
Our professionals provide comprehensive valuation services through diligent research, skilled analysis, and well-documented, unbiased opinions. Clients depend on our market-leading services to make informed real estate decisions.
Lenders rely on us to provide them with thorough, accurate, and objective appraisal reports that result in reliable opinions of market value so they can make prudent underwriting decisions.
Estate planning is an important part of financial planning. We conduct estate planning valuations for individuals and privately held business interests (stock, partnership units, etc.) as required by IRS regulations to determine values or support values claimed on estate or gift tax returns.
Our staff provides a variety of litigation support services, including expert testimony. Both partners have been qualified as an expert witness in US Bankruptcy Court, Worcester Superior Court, and the Appellate Tax Board.
Many of our attorney clients retain us as consultants. As consultants, we often assist with trial strategy, help develop direct testimony or cross-examination questions for the testifying experts, and address unexpected issues that arise during litigation.
We work with private individuals and public agencies in all aspects of property acquisition, disposition, and eminent domain valuations. We work with federal, state, county, and municipal governments, as well as quasi-public agencies.
