Accurate and fair estate liquidation

The loss of a loved one is a difficult time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often entails an appraisal to establish Market Value for the real estate involved. We ensure the fullest degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

Most Americans do not have dedicated estate planners or executors to handle these matters, unlike wealthy individuals. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up a disproportionate share of the total estate value, understanding the correct value of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties walk away knowing they've gotten a fair deal.
