Commercial Real Estate Appraisal & Valuation Services:

Jeffrey M. Johnson, MAI first began providing valuation services for his brokerage and investor clients in the early to middle 1980's. His work in this field predated FIRREA and formal requirements for real estate appraiser licensing and training or education. He became interested in the valuation field in the early 1980's after taking a Commercial Realtor Continuing Education Course on how to effectively challenge a poorly written commercial appraisal. Jeff quickly recognized that the lack of formal commercial brokerage experience and application of these land economics principles was ham-stringing some commercial and residential appraisal practitioners. leading to inaccurate or misleading appraisals. Jeff found it annoying that some practitioners were ignorant of the behavior of commercial market participants, and found many appraisers reaching out to Jeff for assistance with their commercial assignments; so Jeff began a long process of formally educating himself in the appraisal industry, and performing mainly commercial real estate appraisals, that eventually culminated with him becoming a State Certified General Real Estate Appraiser, eventually earning an MAI Designation from the Appraisal Institute.  In over 35 years of experience, education and training, Jeff studied closely under the tutelage at least five different MAI Designated Commercial Appraisers and Experts in Appraisal of Various Commercial Property types, across Missouri, Illinois and Texas.
