Business Owner

As a seasoned professional in the real estate industry of over 24 years, I bring extensive experience as both a real estate appraiser and a real estate salesperson. Born in Joplin, Missouri, and raised in the vibrant city of Kansas City, I embarked on my academic journey at the University of Colorado Boulder and later pursued further studies at the prestigious University of Missouri in Kansas City, Missouri. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree, I honed my skills and knowledge in Missouri before venturing to Atlanta, Georgia, where I spent six enriching years.

In 1999, destiny led me to the breathtaking shores of Naples, Florida, where I found my true home. Since then, I have cherished every moment in this idyllic location, falling in love with the vibrant community and its captivating real estate landscape. Naples has captured my heart, and I have never looked back.

During my leisure time, I indulge in a few cherished activities that rejuvenate my spirit. Fishing, strolling along the sun-kissed beaches, and cherishing quality time with my family are passions that fuel my soul.

While I have found my home in Naples, my son has spent his entire life here and is embarking on his own adventure as he attends graduate school at Florida Atlantic University and is starting an internship at Arthrex. As a young and spirited individual, he eagerly looks forward to exploring new horizons beyond the Sunshine State.

Understanding the value of your property is a crucial factor in many of life's most significant decisions. This is where a residential appraisal comes into play. A residential appraisal is a comprehensive analysis that determines the fair market value of a property. It's a vital tool, whether you're applying for a mortgage, considering listing your home for sale, or simply interested in discerning the market value of your property.

Beyond these commonly recognized needs, there are numerous other situations where a residential appraisal can provide invaluable insight. These include:

  1. Estate Planning: Understanding the value of your property can help shape your financial and estate planning strategies, ensuring your loved ones are well provided for in the future.
  2. Financial Planning: An appraisal can aid in making informed decisions about refinancing, investment, or property improvement.
  3. Real Estate Owned (REO) or Short Sale Scenarios: Accurate property valuation is crucial when dealing with distressed properties to ensure you are making a sound financial decision.
  4. Bankruptcy or Divorce Proceedings: A precise, unbiased property valuation is vital in legal situations such as division of assets.
  5. PMI or Mortgage Insurance Removal: An updated appraisal can help you remove private mortgage insurance (PMI) once you've reached sufficient equity in your home.

Appraisals play a significant role in the decision-making process of banks, lending institutions, and individual homeowners. They provide an objective perspective on a property's value, taking into account a multitude of unique features and market conditions.

Our experienced residential appraisers delve into meticulous research, examining specific factors that might influence the value of your home. These include the presence of any recent renovations, needed repairs, upgrades, and both interior and exterior features of the property. An in-depth inspection of the property is also conducted to ensure an accurate and comprehensive valuation.

With Appraisals of Southwest Florida, you're not only getting a service, but you're also gaining the expertise and knowledge of certified residential FHA-approved appraisers with 23 years of experience in the field. Our professionals have the requisite training, proven experience, and the competency to deliver precise and reliable appraisal reports.

So, whether you're selling your home, undergoing legal proceedings, planning for the future, or merely curious about your property's value, an accurate appraisal can provide the insights you need to make informed, confident decisions.
