Valbridge Office Spotlight: Inland Pacific Northwest
January 25, 2022
Valbridge Property Advisors | Inland Pacific Northwest is the largest real estate appraisal and consulting firm in the Inland Northwest. A majority women-owned business, the staff consists of seven MAIs, seven staff appraisers, and nine research assistants and support staff. Although the majority of assignments are typical market value appraisals, staff members are also involved in specialized assignments, such as feasibility studies, special benefits studies, and eminent domain (condemnation) valuations. Consultation services are available to those who may not need a full appraisal. These services include supply/demand market studies, highest and best use studies, partial interest valuations, and individual real estate investment planning. The firm also conducts the only comprehensive surveys of the Spokane County and Kootenai County Retail, Office, and Industrial markets.
One of the advantages of having a large staff is that several of the staff appraisers have developed specialized knowledge of specific markets ranging from single-family to most commercial and industrial property types. The general service area is Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho, Montana, and Oregon.
Seven of the appraisal staff hold the MAI designation, and all others are candidates in good standing for the MAI designation. Also, all of the appraisal staff is currently State Certified in Washington, with several certified in Idaho, Montana, and Oregon. The educational backgrounds of the various appraisers are not only extensive but varied, which provides a much stronger base for the different assignments and often specialized needs of clients.
