Paul Rowe is a consummate professional. In appraisal work there are hard facts and there is nuance. Paul does not ignore factors that are outside of the facts that could influence the value of a piece of property - such as litigation regarding the property, conditions of the immediate neighborhood that might not be affecting other similar properties a few blocks away. Paul digs in, does his due diligence and is able to come up with a number that not only can be relied upon but can stand up in court (and has). Absolutely one the top appraisers in the Chicago metropolitan area.
“I recently worked with Paul Rowe on a divorce case and was extremely impressed. We hired him to appraise a property and be our real estate expert. The property was very unique and his appraisal was very detailed and well thought out. There was a significant difference in value between his appraisal and the opposing party. Due to the thoroughness of his appraisal, finding flaws in the other appraisal, we were able to get the opposing counsel to agree to reconcile the disputed appraisals using his opinion of value (which saved my client $200,000)! He was in constant communication throughout the process, was professional, and completely exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Rowe Appraisal Group for your appraisal needs.”

Larger estates, commercial properties, and higher end complex properties can take longer.
