About Amanda E Wilson, MAI

Who better to be an integral team member of an office that specializes in unusual properties, than someone who has appraised a railroad station?  Amanda Howard is a detailed and thorough real estate professional who brings sound judgement and diverse experience in commercial appraisal to the position of Director of The Gorman Group's Midwest office.  Her market insights and attention to detail have won praise from both clients and industry peers. 

In addition to appraising an Amtrak Station Amanda has appraised:

  • Golf Courses
  • Schools
  • Lodges
  • Athletic Buildings - including a YWCA

She is also well versed in appraising more conventional properties such as industrial  and retail buildings.  Geographically, her work has taken her from rural Illinois to east coast States like Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

In addition to purchasing, rehabbing and reselling properties on her own account, Amanda's family roots include ownership of shopping centers and other properties in the Chicago Metro area - real estate is in her blood.

Amanda graduated from the University of Illinois with degrees in both finance and marketing and has earned her MAI, a mark of excellence in the field of real estate valuation and analysis.

NOTE : If you are thinking of ordering an appraisal for financing purposes, please consult with your lender first.  Federal law dictates that banks must order the appraisal - not the borrower.
