Pursuit of excellence
While feel for an area is important, the unbiased development of an opinion of value relies on much more than this element. Statistical and paired data support; interviews with market participants; analysis of the here and now (for current valuation projects) are all elements that may go into a report that is supported by facts. While intuition is important, it needs to be backed up by a level of critical thinking.
Rachel Massey completes every appraisal and appraisal review with attention to detail, realizing that this is a critical need for her clients. Each appraisal is completed in an unbiased manner and with the utmost integrity.
Put your trust into the expertise of a local market expert who combines specific market knowledge with unbiased, critical analysis of the problem to be solved.
