About Us 40 + years Real Estate experience

About Me: Former Broker/Sales 40 yrs. Appraising 35 Yrs. Former Residential Field Assessor 20 years. Highly rated in Cook County. Called upon by tax appeal attorneys. When you appeal taxes you need the right ammunition to win. We will figure out what that is.

Your Home's Appraisal Value

We inspect your property according to accepted standards.  We then compare your amenities to similar sold properties and their prices.  We adjust plus and minus dollars for various items to determine a most probable final value estimate.

The Tax Appeal Process

This is not an appraisal, but an estimate of an appropriate tax assessment.   Barring unusual situations, we don't need to inspect the property.  We research sales in your area, compare your property, and convert  selling prices to  assessments.  No contingent fees.  For a very low fee, we provide you with a report which you include with your own tax appeal.   We also provide services for tax appeal Attorneys.  Cook County Illinois.
