Real Estate Appraiser

Michelle Sims is a licensed Appraiser with considerable experience appraising all types of homes. When valuation becomes an issue Michelle's Narrative Appraisal gives the Assessor's Office more reasons why the current assessed value should be lowered.

Over the years Michelle has found that the Assessor's Office has the wrong square footage, the wrong number of bedrooms and bathrooms and other errors. The finding of such errors is what will lower your assessed value.
