  Neill McDonald, MAI

Real Estate Advisor, Consultant & Appraiser


Real estate appraisals in Savannah, Georgia, are almost always unique...and that's just what we specialize in. The Gorman Group is fortunate to rely on Neill for projects in areas including eastern Georgia and southeastern South Carolina.


Neill was called upon to appraise the Savannah International Trade Center


A licensed real estate appraiser in Georgia and South Carolina, Neill McDonald is nationally recognized both as an appraiser of large land tracts and for his appraisal work in the City of Savannah. And as you know, Savannah is right across the border from Hilton Head, where there are many golf courses.


Neill McDonald brings more than 35 years of real estate appraisal experience to land appraisals, commercial property appraisals, consulting, and real estate advising in Georgia and South Carolina. To see a sampling of some of the properties Neill has appraised, click here.


Professional Profile

Neill's clients range from federal, state and local governments and agencies to public and private companies, lending institutions, trust departments, and individuals.


Many of his clients benefit from his strong background in rezoning, subdivision and land planning. When International Paper was the largest private landowner d uring the last decade, Neill assisted them in marketing thousands of acres of undeveloped properties in the Savannah region. In addition, Neill offers considerable experience in consultation- and litigation-related assignments.


Neill's offices are conveniently located in the Historic District, at 145 Bull Street - feel free to drop in!
