Appraisal Services

Dustin Hawkins holds the coveted MAI designation. Through this extensive training, experience and specialization HREA is able to provide reliable and impartial valuation reports on all classifications of a real property. The Appraisal services have expanded our growing real estate expertise to facilitate client requests for appraisals, feasibility analysis, litigation support, and consulting services for all classifications of real estate.

As commercial real estate appraisers we estimate the value to solve valuation issues for various needs. The most well-known need for commercial appraisals is for new loans, however, there are many other situations in which an appraisal is required, such as real estate tax purposes, for dividing assets in divorce proceedings, and for eminent domain work.

If you’re looking to get an appraisal done on a piece of commercial property, perhaps because you want to buy or sell it or even because you want to establish a value of a lease or lodge a property tax appeal, there could be a bit of a learning curve in knowing what you’re about to embark on. Please contact us today for a consultation.

We provide clear and targeted solutions

Our integrated real estate services help you determine your organizational options related to real property or facilities, establish what to do with a real estate asset, and identify what it may worth. We can also help you plan, permit, develop and construct a new or renovated building, campus, or neighborhood
