Our experienced team of advisors at Patchin Messner Valuation Counselors offers the complex task of appraising your real estate property to ensure they discover the true value each and every time. From retail, commercial and industrial properties to rural, special purpose, estate tax planning, tax or eminent domain issues, our team consistently provides thorough expert valuations.

Our main focus is to provide you with complete:

  • Real Estate Appraisals

All of our principals hold the MAI designation awarded by the Appraisal Institute. Our staff of appraisers is experienced and can provide a wide range of services relating to all types of real property including commercial, industrial, agricultural, residential and vacant land.


Our team of advisors provides appraisal reviews for determining whether the given appraisal methods are appropriate, whether appraisal reports conform to applicable standards, and whether the analysis is reasonably supported by the data presented.

We perform both in-office desk reviews and on-site field reviews to determine whether the report contains accurate information of the property being reviewed. We also determine if the review has missing information or lacks necessary appraisal reasoning and logic.

Christine Mackaman holds the AI-GRS designation awarded by the Appraisal Institute for appraisal review experience and knowledge.  Our team provides appraisal reviews for residential, commercial, and special use properties. Whether the purpose of the appraisal review is for financing or eminent domain, we have the knowledge and skills to complete single and/or multiple property appraisal reviews in a timely manner.
