About this pro
We do not do mortgage/ lending-use appraisals, so that allows us to focus on legal/ attorney-related work, especially probate/ estate appraisals, and divorce appraisals. Being a divorce appraiser and probate/ estate appraisal specialist keeps us focused on two specific sets of clients, who we enjoy helping with real estate appraisals. Last, appraiser, Nathan Bernhardt holds specific real estate certifications, beyond the Oregon Appraiser Certification, for probate real estate, and divorce real estate. I like the "pure-valuation" professionalism required of working with the legal and tax communities, and their clients.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?On pricing, I like to save people money by not giving them more than they need, report-wise. There is no need to charge big money for a 30 or 40 page report, when a thinner report will yield the same result, but without all the "bells and whistles".
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?A quick, friendly conversation to see if their needs fit well with our services. Then we can price the appraisal and discuss timeline.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am an Oregon Certified Residential Appraiser, and hold specific certifications for both divorce and estate/ probate estate. I also hold a real estate salesperson license in Oregon.
