(or, who we are and how we built a thriving firm at a time when established firms were failing)
The fall of 2008 was arguably the most difficult time in decades to start a new real estate appraisal firm.

They spend this training period under the supervision of one or more seasoned and highly trained commercial real estate appraisers. And although the initial three-year training process is thorough, many more years of real world experience are required to become truly proficient.
