Tony Cardinal

Monday, October 13th, 2014 Josephs Appraisal Group lost a dear Friend and a great Appraiser. Tony Cardinal was employed with Josephs Appraisal Group for over 10 years and has provided appraisal services to many of our clients from the northern border all of the way to the southern border of Arizona. He will be missed by all that were blessed to know him. Our thoughts & prayers go out to his Wife, Family & Friends during this difficult time.

Realtors Are Welcome to Meet Us at the Appraisal Inspection

We recognize the time investment Real Estate Agents make in gathering data on their client's listings. We will listen to what they have to say about the Real Estate activity in the property’s neighborhood.

There is nothing in the Home Valuation Code of Conduct that says Realtors can’t talk to Appraisers. We value our relationships with agents, and appreciate their local expertise!

We Offer the “Green Appraisal

We contribute to efforts to clean up the environment by offering “The Green Appraisal”. Our appraiser will arrive at your home in a hybrid, electric or alternative fuel vehicle.

 

Additionally, a $50.00 donation will be made to ‘Conservation International’ (www.Conservation.org). Their mission is ‘to empower societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity.” Our appraiser will leave a complimentary CFL Energy Star light bulb at the property, as a ‘thanks’ for doing your part to making the world a better place.
