The appraisers consist of one senior managing director, two managing directors, three senior appraisers, a trainee, and an analyst. Administratively, we share a business operations manager, two administrators, and a part-time technical-administrative projects specialist. This administrative personnel also serves our offices in Tampa and Jacksonville, headed up by Ryan Zink, MAI, and James Toro, MAI, respectively.
The Orlando office provides a wide bandwidth of valuation services by asset type, from owner-user to investment-grade assets. Members of the appraisal team often specialize in various niches, including dealerships, car washes, subdivisions, condominiums, mixed-use developments, and complex income-producing assets. We have several appraisers who work regularly in Argus Enterprise. The Orlando office’s technology platform is entirely cloud-based and uses SaaS versions of Microsoft 365, SharePoint, Adobe, etc. In addition to comprehensive valuation and advisory services, we perform portfolio valuations and litigation support, including expert witness testimony.
