      Pledge of Conduct

      We do not solicit clients on a mass basis. We solicit through referrals from satisfied customers. We provide service which is swift, accurate and confidential. We protect the integrity of the industry as well as our client base. Our client list is held in the strictest confidence and no appraisal is discussed with anyone other than the addressee or their representative (provided authorization is received). Each of our staff members is polite, courteous, professional and dedicated to providing you with the best service. We maintain a sophisticated up-to-date computer record of all our appraisals, as well as general market analysis and trends. This helps us provide you with fast, accurate and reliable appraisal services including cost effective “in-office” update appraisals and electronic transmission delivery of all appraisal assignments upon request.
