What We Do
National Coverage. Local Knowledge. True Valuation Independence.

Valbridge appraisers evaluate commercial property based on objective criteria, in-depth knowledge of local property markets, and time-tested judgment. We identify and analyze the variables that affect value, often seeing what others don’t see based on our expertise and independence.

Valbridge appraisers evaluate commercial property based on objective criteria, in-depth knowledge of local property markets and time-tested judgment. We identify and analyze the variables that affect value, often seeing what others don’t see based on our expertise and independence.

In our industry, some service providers (including many brokerage firms) have an angle. They want clients to buy or sell, or borrow or lend, because their companies get paid for facilitating transactions.

We’re different from the competition.


We provide independent valuations and advise clients on real estate investment decisions. Second, the leading appraisers who manage our offices also are shareholders in the company.


Clients across the U.S. benefit from the collective strength of North America’s largest independent commercial valuation firm, and our dedication to elevating appraisal industry standards for accuracy, integrity, reporting, technology and data.


Valbridge professionals can’t tell the future, but we’re trusted by clients to provide independent valuations and powerful insights for better business.

Selected Assignments

Portfolio of 21 Investment-Grade Office and R&D Properties2021-02-19T15:13:04+00:00

Valued a portfolio of 21 investment-grade office and R&D properties for a major university endowment undergoing an audit. Five Valbridge offices in multiple states participated in the assignment, providing consistent work product and single-point-of-contact service to the fund manager.

Lake and Surrounding Buffer Zone2021-02-19T15:14:33+00:00

Appraised a lake and surrounding buffer zone for a recently deregulated power company. The assignment results compelled the state to purchase the lakebed and buffer zone from the utility to secure the lake as a public asset. Individual property owners with adjacent sites were then offered the opportunity to buy down to the waterfront, allowing those owners to control their frontage and stabilize their property values.

Six-Acre Industrial Property2021-02-19T15:15:45+00:00

Valued a six-acre industrial property including a bus storage and maintenance facility to help the owner determine the appropriate building lease rate and the land value.

Appraised an 802,000 square foot steel mill operated by the U.S. arm of an international manufacturer. The owner challenged the local government’s assessment of the property value. Our report resulted in a reduction of the owner’s tax liability.

Masonic Temple2021-02-19T15:17:58+00:00

Valued a Masonic temple that is a historic building, including a 2,300-seat auditorium, frescos and statues, in a central urban area. We helped the owner identify other potential community and cultural uses for the iconic property, recognizing that many religious and fraternal organizations nationally are experiencing demographic changes and declines in membership and, thus, are exploring strategic asset management opportunities.

11 Fast-Food Restaurants2021-02-19T15:18:52+00:00

Appraised a portfolio of 11 fast-food restaurants including the land and the buildings for the purchase and sale of a partnership interest. The sites are located in two states.

Valued an office complex containing 1.7 million square feet of Class A space within five skyway-connected office towers occupied by more than 85 tenants. The overall site features landmark-quality architecture and a range of amenities and walking trails. All the buildings are Energy Star certified, with some LEED rated. In conducting the valuation for the owner, we carefully considered the buildings’ energy operating performance.

Market and Feasibility Study2021-02-19T15:22:56+00:00

Performed a market and feasibility study for the owner of a 14-acre suburban site to determine the highest and best use of the property, including demand for for-sale or for-lease residential units based on market occupancy, projected absorption and estimated sales prices and asking rents. Evaluated 31 comparable properties in addition to the overall market, and analyzed the option of holding the site for future development versus developing the site immediately.

Valued an apartment portfolio including 7,200 units in 37 communities. We were hired by a fractional-interest owner concerned about estate administration.
