At HVA, Inc., we have appraised numerous property types ranging from vacant land to large mixed use developments. We don’t specialize in any one property type, however, due to the high volume of appraisals conducted here, we have appraised many properties that are considered specialty uses such as churches, schools, medical offices, and bank branches. Listed below are properties we have appraised over the past several years.



While we cover the entire state of Florida for large appraisal assignments, our primary coverage area is comprised of the Tampa Bay area and surrounding counties on the central west coast of Florida.


I’ve always been frustrated with poor service and unfulfilled expectations.  Why is it that when you order a product like furniture or computers and the delivery is promised on a certain date, you find yourself waiting only to receive a phone call late that day or the day after saying that the delivery was held up? Then when the product is delivered, something is missing or damaged and you end up waiting for the replacement.  Why is it that you have a 10:00 doctor’s appointment and find yourself in the waiting room for an hour only to be escorted to an exam room where a nurse asks a few questions and you sit there for another half hour?  Then the doctor drops in for five minutes.  And, why do you order an appraisal and don’t hear anything from that appraiser for two or three weeks?  Then, at the last minute the appraiser tells you he or she doesn’t have all the information they need to finish the appraisal?  


My customers typically order appraisals on commercial real estate on behalf of their client. Everyone is often in a hurry and they can’t afford to wait on a report only to find that the appraiser has an excuse as to why it’s late.  And, it’s not fair to them to receive a poor quality, inaccurate appraisal that was rushed by the appraiser.  This makes you look bad and could jeopardize your relationship with your client.


It’s been my mission to provide excellent service.  When I receive an order I set up the file and assign it to one of my highly trained and experienced appraisers, who conducts preliminary research before contacting the property owner and setting up an inspection.  We will notify our client if there are any problems or missing information early into the process so they have the time to rectify the deficiency and our goal is to deliver the appraisal early – only after diligently going over every aspect of the report, making sure there are no omissions or mistakes.


I have a vision of my customer getting to work in the morning and opening up their calendar to see what’s on the agenda and noticing that our appraisal is due that day and a look of satisfaction on their face when they realize it was delivered the day before or is in their inbox.  If this sounds appealing to you, I would love to have you as my client and develop a long term working relationship where you can trust me to always provide you with the service you expect and deserve.
