Coverage Area

We prepare valuation estimates throughout the State of Illinois. Although the primary focus of our market area is the Chicago metropolitan area, we cover all areas within the state.  In addition, our research team and affiliates are qualified and licensed in several states in the midwest, allowing us to provide you services in multiple jurisdictions and market areas.

Providing Dedicated Professionals

Every appraisal assignment is prepared or reviewed by an appraiser holding the MAI designation and the State of Illinois General Certification. The staff appraisers are expert witnesses who have testified in court in matters relating to condemnation, zoning, tax appeals and estate matters.
