Knowing the true value of real estate is more important than ever, and poses more difficult to discern, especially in today’s highly scrutinized regulatory environment. Here at M.T.C. Real Estate Appraisal Company, LLC, that’s our greatest concern!


We evaluate properties based on objective criteria, in-depth knowledge of local markets, and time-tested judgment and experience. We identify and analyze the variables that affect  value, often seeing what other appraisers overlook. Therefore, our approach to real estate appraisals is always the same: know the market.


When preparing a real estate appraisal, we deal with local property owners, property managers, governmental officials, sales and leasing brokers, and other appraisers to develop a clear understanding of the history of the market as well as the market’s perception of the future.
