[03/26/20] The finance industry is considered an "essential business," and as such, Appraisals Guaranteed will remain open. While Covid-19 is still out there, though, social distancing will be practiced. In the event I have to enter your house, I ask that unlock all doors, turn on all lights, and stay at least six feet away from me during the visit. - Rick Phillips
[02/25/20] The ideal client is someone who is both organized and wants to learn something new.
[01/18/20] Do you want to know a secret? Most buyers of residential real estate do not care even a little bit about the notion of dollars-to-square-feet.
The abbreviation for a listing that has been WITHDRAWN in the new #BrightMLS system is "WTH." When I see WTH, I immediately think "what the hell?!"
WTH indeed. If you are selling your house and you are experiencing a withdrawn (or expired) listings, then wth are you doing wrong? Call an appraiser and get your house sold.
[03/15/19] Been hammering out some new slogans: "Appraisals Guaranteed--we're not half bad!" Or ... "Appraisals Guaranteed, we're pretty good some of the time!" It might help lower expectations, but don't know if this is really going to reel those clients in :-)
I haven't logged into Angie's List in a while. Was nice to see this today. Report Card - A:
After 15 years in the biz the praise never gets old :-) Remember to thank somebody who did something to help make your life easier, and happy Friday!
[10/29/18] It's nice when the first email you read for the day begins: "I have completed my review of your appraisal for Tilden Street, and I just wanted to say that it was an awesome report. As an analyst, it's always nice to receive a well-put-together report..." and then it goes on to praise our great work :-) Keep those cards and letters coming!
[06/15/17] I have performed 19 appraisals this week, and it's only Thursday. Ladies and gentlemen: a new record!
[02/09/17] A question I receive at least once a month: "Can you go back more than six months?" The answer is YES. An appraiser often researches properties similar to the subject property that sold one, two, or even several years in the past. To use one of those properties as support for the value opinion, however, I must also demonstrate what has happened in the market (rise/fall/etc.) from that time to now.
[12/22/16] For the second year in a row, Appraisals Guaranteed has won the Angie's List Super Service Award. This means are in the top 5% of businesses on A/L....

[10/09/15] Instructions from my client this morning: "Also - there is an old dog named Angel that stays outside in the backyard. Big and fairly harmless. Just don't go near her food bowl..."
[10/02/15] Do not be afraid to throw those things in your fridge with expiration dates long gone by...

[10/01/14] Appraisals Guaranteed is kicking off October with a promotion for Angies List members: We are donating $50 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
What is the "guarantee?"
It is pretty simple, really: we do what we say we will do.
[05/23/13] MRIS (the local MLS) - It refuses to allow me to log in. No reason offered. Tech support offers "a solution in the near future." Ugg .... Maybe it's a good time for a jog :)
