I specialize in complex industrial valuations. I often review the opposing side's appraisal and testify against it in court - but I take cases based on the merits. My expertise includes electronics, paper mills, oil refineries, automobile plants, food processors, solar, and all types of manufacturing facilities. I also have expertise in shopping malls and other commercial properties. I am a certified general appraiser and licensed real estate broker Much of my work is for property tax appeals and I work for industry as well as assessors. Other work includes corporate buyouts, and other complex valuation assignments. I am a published author of books, instructional courses, and numerous articles on industrial appraising and economic issues. Author of "Fundamentals of Industrial Valuation," the sole textbook for industrial appraisers published by the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) in April 2007. Author of "Analyzing Complex Appraisals for Business Professionals", published by McGraw Hill in 2016.
