A Remarkably Different Commercial Appraisal Company
We are advocates for better commercial valuation practices because we do not like the standards that prevail in our industry. Not all commercial appraisers are the same. Just because one holds a commercial appraisal license (certified general license) or is an MAI (Designated Member of the Appraisal Institute), does not mean that the quality of work, service, report layout and attention to detail will be the same despite conforming to USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice). After reviewing thousands of commercial appraisal reports across the nation from various small to large commercial appraisal firms, it was clear that there is a wide range of quality and customer service levels. There are far too many commercial appraisers out there that consistently turn in assignments late, use poor methodology or comparables, have a lack of communication, have poor customer service, and etc. We started Vanguard Realty Advisors with the mission to make your commercial property matter more by providing the highest quality on-time commercial valuation and customer service that exceeds industry standards.
We are a commercial appraisal company that is small enough or large enough for your needs. Many of the smaller commercial appraisal firms (1 to 2 person shops) do not have the capacity, database & resources, and/or experience with various property types and geographical locations. Many of the larger national commercial appraisal firms have trainees performing the appraisals. All Vanguard commercial appraisals are performed by experienced licensed commercial appraisers. Many of the larger national commercial appraisal firms charge "brand fees" and have huge shared (appraisal, management, brokerage) overhead resulting in high cost commercial appraisals. Furthermore, the larger national commercial appraisal firms are commingled with a brokerage & management division. This is important as we are not influenced by a brokerage arm and are truly independent and unbiased. We only provide commercial appraisal and consulting services. We do not include additional fees for shared overhead expenses nor do we charge "brand fees" for being part of a larger national commercial appraisal firm.

Charlotte Commercial Appraiser..."I had the pleasure of working with Rusty King, the managing director of the Vanguard office in Charlotte, North Carolina. We needed multiple properties appraised for estate tax reasons with a fast turn around time. The properties were located in Charlotte, Asheville, Wilmington, Raleigh, Greensboro and Winston-Salem. There was also properties in South Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. He delivered the reports on time and with a high level of expertise. I recommend Rusty King for any commercial appraisal located in the Carolinas and surrounding states."
