Chicago is simply a wonderful city to appraise in. Here we have just about every property type imaginable. We also have among the greatest economic diversities imaginable. We have Ford Heights, one of the poorest communities in the United States, and there is Kenilworth, one of the wealthiest. Appraising here has provided us with the opportunity to value all kinds of unusual properties. We've appraised globally rare earth, sand dunes, depleted sand mines, slug pits and even a dog track. We've been to Jamaica in New York City and the City of Yakima in Washington. Our location in Chicago makes us only hours away from virtually anywhere in the country.   

This list is only meant to be representative of some of the types of properties we have appraised. Obviously, we appraise numerous common properties such as industrial buildings, subdivisions, shopping centers and warehouses. Properties with an asterisk have photos added.
