    Evan from American Realty Appraisals came out to our home last spring to conduct a home appraisal in support of our property tax appeal. He arrived promptly at the agreed time, was very professional and conducted a thorough walk through. We were very satisfied with the results of his appraisal - they were well-researched and accurately captured the features of the home. His appraisal proved to be a crucial element in a very successful tax appeal. I would gladly recommend his services to others.

    When the interest rates dropped last year, I decided that it was a good idea to refinance my mortgage. I was recommended to American Realty Appraisals by my mortgage company. They were affordable, expedient, and ultimately put together a very comprehensive report with figures, photos, and local comps. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional and honest appraisal company.

    Before I went to list my home, I hired Evan at American Realty Appraisals. I wanted an unbiased opinion of what my home was worth.
