The company partakes in:

  • Commercial property tax assessment reviews and appeals
  • Rental studies for retail, office and industrial properties
  • Valuation reports for litigation and arbitration
  • General appraisals

Job Description:

The applicant would preferably have experience in the property tax field, although this is not essential, and at least 3 years of appraisal experience.  The ability to research agents’ web-sites, space for lease, Paragon and RealNet, and other data sources is a benefit, although all can be learnt.

During the rest of the year, the company needs assistance with ongoing appeals.
