  About Us

The Gorman Group, Ltd. provides services nationally from our offices located in the metropolitan Chicago area. We have been providing quality professional real estate services to hundreds of clients ranging from the Federal Government to major financial institutions like Citicorp since 1965.

The depth of our knowledge stems from "hands on" experience of construction, sales and, of course, appraising. From building banks to developing network location strategies, the Gorman Group has provided real estate support services to virtually every aspect of the business world.

The Gorman Group’s principal field of expertise is real estate valuation. With roots in the heart of America’s industrial belt, our industrial experience is wide and diverse, with experience on both sides of the market. We have significant experience with distressed property, having performed appraisals of defunct steel mills, contaminated land, wetlands and floodplains. 

Conversely, we have performed appraisals of high-rise office buildings, hotel condominiums, USDA-compliant buildings, numerous fast food restaurants (QSR's) and more.

Litigation support, eminent domain and market value appraisals are just some of the additional services we provide. To see a partial list of the types of properties we have appraised, click here.

Since we are a Chicago-based company, a large percentage of our work is in this area. However, the Gorman Group has the resources to provide national coverage, adn we do. We have performed appraisals from New York to California and from Washington (State) to Florida, and, as the train conductors used to say, “all stops in-between.” 

The Gorman Group prides itself on its ability to handle the most unusual real estate problems – properties that others lack the experience to attempt. This is an important factor in any assignment in light of the current federally mandated standards regarding competency.

The wide-ranging diversity of the Gorman Group’s experience provides our clients with the knowledge that their assignments, whether they be unusual or typical, simple or complex, will be managed with the highest level of expertise.




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.
