I retained Bob to assist with my dad’s estate. He was fully transparent and took the time to answer all of my questions. It was evident that he has a passion for what he does. I referred Bob to a friend who was just as satisfied with his services.” (Local Resident)

I have relied on Bob throughout the years for various projects. Bob’s professionalism and communication skills are second to none. I regularly recommend Bob to others.” (President & CEO/Chairman of the Board of Directors with a Local Financial Institution)

I’ve known Bob for many years both as an appraiser and as a friend. Being a Broker people ask me all the time what their property or asset is worth, and Bob has always been there to help me out. His experience and knowledge about the current Puget Sound real estate market is invaluable. We compare notes all the time and I find him to be extremely accurate at the end of the day. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, hardworking, and competitive real estate appraiser I would highly recommend Bob.” (Local Broker)
