WHAT'S NEXTThe Appraisal Process

Once you and Christine agree upon the appraisal assignment, Christine will send you an engagement package.

Once you’ve completed the forms and returned them, Christine will contact you to set an appointment date. If your circumstances are unique she may want to clarify the purpose and direction of the appraisal to best suit your needs.

Once the property is seen, the research and report development will begin–this can take a couple of weeks. After the report is written, Christine will email it to the appropriate parties and offer a consultation to go over your report so that you understand exactly how the information was derived and to answer any questions you may have.

Andy Hall-Realtor/Broker/Consultant

The court’s ruling came out today.  The court accepted our figures for the value of the property and completely discounted the other appraisal that was submitted. The property was awarded to my client. We won on all major issues. Many thanks to you for the very thorough job you did on the appraisals and the professional way in which you testified.

Janet Uthe-Attorney at Law

Thanks so much for coming over today.  The County appraiser was very impressed with your appraisal and did not contest anything in your findings. In fact, she won total agreement and assured me that she would make the adjustments to the record and revalue the property as you recommended in your report.  What started out as an argument ended up in total agreement once she read and examined the work you provided.  We have an assurance now that the value will be corrected in line with your findings.  Thanks for the meeting with us today with such short notice!

I have always received excellent service with Appraiser Christine Pyle Banks. Since the early years, 1990 and forward Christine has been an excellent choice for our appraisals when I was a lender and after when I became a sales and listing Broker. Christine has always performed with professionalism and efficiency. I still recommend her whenever I get a referral for a good quality appraiser who is honest and does her research beyond what is required. I strongly recommend Appraiser Christine Pyle Banks. She does her appraisals with reliability and integrity!
