We loved what we were doing and our clients appreciated
the superior service we provided. When changes in banking regulations necessitated the need for
appraisal management companies, our clients asked us for guidance.
They trusted that we were qualified to step in and meet their needs for management of their entire work pipelines. We re-grouped, got organized for appraisal management and made a lot of new friends to eventually build a nationwide network of appraisers. We were able to meet clients’ needs and to foster good relationships with appraisers who came to realize that Absolute Value Management was not a typical AMC. Because our company roots were in appraisal, we had a great respect of the skills and knowledge of those in the field. Happy appraisers. Satisfied customers. Slam-dunk.
A few years ago, another opportunity arose when one of our clients asked us to step in to manage a handful of properties that had landed in their portfolio as a result of foreclosures. Our vast network of contractors, our ability to evaluate return on improvements and our regional expertise (thanks to our hundreds of appraisers who live and work in their own neighborhoods, all over the country) had us perfectly aligned for property management and gave us a unique advantage over existing property management companies.
We quickly stepped in, secured the properties, evaluated their conditions and recommended updates to either maximize return on investment or to minimize loss. We were then able to arrange and oversee any construction or repairs, maintain the properties' exteriors and interiors, and finally use our valuation network and experience to advise on local market conditions and listing price. We had great success across the board and continued to get requests to manage properties.
Along the way, we also developed a service that allows homeowners to order valuation reports online. Based on answers to very specific property-related questions, real, live valuation professionals create a report (not a computer generated value) that mirrors what you would expect from a full real estate appraisal. Neighborhood Comp Check gives homeowners a realistic and solid basis for making their own real estate decisions—at a low cost and within a few days.
What’s next? We have some ideas . . . and we’ve had a few requests that would aim us in the direction of real estate sales. So here we are. Our clients have come to us looking for direction and we have led the way. That’s what we do. We partner with our clients to solve problems and provide exceptional service.
We'll get back to you soon!
