I recommend Robert as an appraiser and especially as an expert witness in real estate trials. He has completed a number of real estate appraisals which were used in some trials I was preparing for. I found his work to be of the highest quality. And his integrity and effort are second to none.

John H. Ruby, Attorney at Law
I want to thank you for the recent consultations you have provided for me and my real estate clients. The appraisals you completed, the house measures and consultations helped my real estate clients meet their real estate goals, and as their Realtor, my job was made easier.

I will continue to recommend you to my real estate clients who need either an appraisal or a seller’s consultation.

Julie Anderson, Realtor, Auctioneer, Real Estate Unlimited
Dear Robert,

I wanted to thank you for helping me with both the appraisal and sale of my home and also helping me find the home of my dreams. Your appraisal work, consultations and advice proved to be invaluable. I appreciate the patience and professionalism you extended to me as we worked through the process of completing all of my real estate goals this year.

Thanks Robert for the home appraisal and the consultations that followed. I read through your report and this really helped me to understand why my home had not sold during the previous listing period.

Also, I appreciate the hour you took to come over and consult with me to help me prepare my home for sale, and to strategize the best ways to sell my house quickly and for the highest price. Lastly, I am more than half way through your excellent book Smart House Selling and I will gladly recommend it to any of my friends who might want to sell their homes.

For Home Owners

Home owners see the advantages of having an appraisal completed prior to listing their home for sale. An appraisal removes the guess work and makes the pricing process a snap. This leads to higher sale prices, faster market times, more offers and larger checks at closing.

Knowing the value of your home gives you a big advantage.

As a service to our clients both REALTORS and home owners Appraisal of Kentucky has developed a summarized, yet very thorough, complete residential appraisal report that is affordable to the home owner, and if you’re a home owner and want to replace the floor of your house, the use of a Resin Flooring Company can be great for this.

If the home owner would prefer the traditional URAR report, Appraisal of Kentucky can gladly accommodate that request as well. See below.
