Thanks for visiting me online. I am an Alaska based Real Estate Counselor and Private Mortgage Investor. I have been continuously active in the real estate profession in Alaska since 1962. Therefore, I guess it is accurate to call me an “Old Dog” (visit my blog on this subject at An Old Dog Sez). But I am still learning new tricks, and thank the Lord for the privilege of still being active in a profession I enjoy!
REAL ESTATE COUNSELING: Over the years I have earned professional designations in real estate appraisal (MAI), real estate syndication (SRS), commercial and investment real estate (CCIM) and real estate counseling (CRE). To review my full Professional Qualifications Click Here.
I now limit my counseling activities to the following areas:
- Appraisal Review: I review commercial appraisals for a number of Alaska’s leading financial institutions, attorneys and government agencies.
- Litigation Evaluation And Expert Testimony: I often work with attorneys to evaluate evidence and recommend strategies in real estate litigation and also provide expert testimony.
- Valuation Dispute Settlement: I have acted as a Mediator, Arbitrator; Court appointed Master and neutral member of appraisal panels to resolve disputes relating to the value of real property.
- Note and Mortgage Appraisals: For someone desiring to sell a Note for CA$H NOW, I complete evaluations as a part of preparing a CA$H NOW offer. For more information on selling a Note, Click Here. However, sometimes it is necessary to know the Market Value of a Note that is not for sale for purposes such as divorce, estate settlement or other reasons. I can provide professional appraisals of all forms of Notes, Mortgages, Deeds of Trust or Contracts for Deed.
PRIVATE MORTGAGE INVESTMENT: As President of CA$H NOW Financial Corporation, I am involved in paying CA$H NOW for Seller Financed Real Estate Notes, providing Creative Commercial Loans and appraising private mortgages. To learn more about these activities, Click Here.
CREATIVE REAL ESTATE: I also host an online forum on Creative Real Estate that is a great place to learn about the topic, exchange ideas and gain access to valuable information. To visit this site, Click Here.
