I am a state certified residential real estate appraiser, and I lovewhat I do. I particularly enjoyseeing homes with innnovative or unique architectural/design featuresandam continually expanding my knowledgeofand expertise inthe wonderfulvariety of neighborhoods we have the opportunity to enjoy herein the Bay Area. I truly love dogs (I have a white border collie and a blue merleAustralian Shepherd, and I support thePeninsula Humane Society), and always enjoymaking new friends with them while I amin "the field".I am an associate member of the Appraisal Institute, andregularly take professional development/continuing education courses in order to staycurrent with the latestvaluation-related information, trends, and techniques. One of the tasks appraisers regularly do is determine and/or verify the square footage of the living area of your home by measuring theoutside dimensions (this ismore challenging for below grade and upper level living areas, but it can be done, and I take pride in takingthe necessary time to do it right). One of the measuring devices Iemploy for these lower and upper living areas uses sonic waves to measure the distance between interior walls and it is over 99% accurate). It is important to know thecorrectly and accuratelyestimatedliving area of your home for insurance, tax, and marketing purposes. Please e-mail me or give me a call today to discuss your appraisal and/or living area verification needs.MoreLess
