More About Us

Our services.


A real estate appraisal provides the basis for a knowledgeable business decision concerning real property. We focus primarily on the appraisal of the income producing and special purpose properties to determine value for investment, disposition, acquisition, financing, taxation, settlement of an estate or portfolio management.


For many clients, Market Value is not necessarily the needed answer to the question. How should the property be developed? Should I build now or wait? What should the rent be? We provide a range of consulting services that can help sort through the complexities surrounding a new project using Highest and Best Use Analysis, Pricing Surveys, Rental Studies, Absorption Studies, and Feasibility Analysis.


Navigating Florida Statute 193.011 when a property is being overburdened by ad valorem taxation is difficult for the average property owner to resolve. We have considerable experience dealing with tax appeals at both VAB hearings as well as at the circuit court level to resolve these types of issues.


Frank A. Catlett, MAI, SRA has extensive experience in providing expert witness testimony in 15 Circuit Courts within the State of Florida, and six Federal District Courts. Preliminary evaluation services can help weigh the merits of going forward with sometimes expensive and often lengthy court proceedings.


In the development of new roads and infra-structure, private property rights are often impacted. Many times, there are damages like loss of parking, impaired access, diminished utility and reduced visibility and exposure, that are overlooked by the condemning authority when making an offer for compensation. It is important to have an experienced valuation expert at your side when negotiating condemnation settlements.

Estate Planning

Accurate valuation is essential when transferring estate property for the estimation of taxes as well as distribution among heirs. This firm appraised many properties for estates and has experience in dealing with life estates, partial interests, minority interests, gifts and donations. We have prepared appraisals for the Internal Revenue Service and have a working knowledge of the IRS code of 1986 as it pertains to the appraisal of real estate.

Business Valuation

For some property types discerning between the real estate and the business values can be complicated. A complete business valuation, including asset and liability analysis, cash flow analysis, and evaluation of financial statements can can assist in the determination of worth in a variety of situations, including sale of a business, financing, buy/sell agreements and resolving estate or shareholder valuations.

Appraisal Review

If questioning the results of an appraisal prepared by another firm, let us take a look to see whether it meets the standards of professional appraisal practices. For years we have provided appraisal review services to our governmental clients to ensure reliable valuation results.



Over the years we have had the opportunity to work on many types of projects ranging from a 5,700 acre ranch to an antenna site on top of the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center. Take a look at some of the highlights.
