Simply put, a commercial real estate appraisal is a professional appraiser’s opinion of value. According to the Appraisal Institute, a global professional association of real estate appraisers with almost 20,000 professionals, “The preparation of an appraisal involves research into appropriate market areas; the assembly and analysis of information pertinent to a property; and the knowledge, experience, and professional judgment of the appraiser.” Appraisals are typically required whenever property is sold, mortgaged, taxed, insured, or developed.


Professional appraisers provide unbiased, equitable, expert opinions about the value of real property—providing assistance to those who own, manage, sell, invest in, and/or lend money on the security of real estate. A blend of expertise and depth of experience, every appraisal requires technical knowledge, strong analytical skills, and sound judgment.

The Appraisal Institute’s MAI designation is a mark of excellence that recognizes the very highest professional levels of knowledge, analytical skills, experience, and judgment.

Chet Rogers has earned and maintains the MAI designation. This means that Chet has expertise and experience that extends well beyond the requirements of state licensure. It provides you the confidence that your commercial real estate appraisal – no matter what the property type or appraisal purpose – will be thoughtful, comprehensive, accurate, reflect current best practices, and be of the highest quality.
