by Mason Spurgeon, Certified General Real-Estate Appraiser

July 2019

Thanks to the continued support of customers like you, we have exciting news to share this month. Spurgeon Appraisals has now welcomed Bob Giovannini, a Missouri Certified General Appraiser, to join our staff. Bob will oversee our new appraisal office location in Kirksville, Missouri. He will be completing several different projects for our company and specializing in Residential projects in the western counties of our new, larger coverage area shown in the map below. After only a few weeks in the office, Bob has shown himself eager to apply his extensive knowledge and years of experience to our growing customer base. See the map below for the counties covered by our Residential Team as part of our regular service area. While we usually will not appraise residential properties outside of these counties, we will make exceptions for projects involving multiple or unique properties.

Bob entered the appraisal profession in 1984, long before the licensing and certification of appraisers. In December 1997, he was Certified as Residential Appraiser #RA001495. Along the way and for many years, Bob managed an office in Kirksville for a larger appraisal company until 1997, when he opened his own appraisal practice. There was an eight-year period when Bob served as the Adair County Assessor, which is an elected position. After serving at the courthouse, he returned to his appraisal practice. In July 2007, Bob became a General Appraiser. While in private practice, Bob has appraised nearly every type of property for nearly every type of intended use. He is also proud to be part of an appraisal team like the one at Spurgeon Appraisals.

We welcome the new insight that Bob will bring to our office, but we are also committed to providing the same level of quality service as we have in the past. Since no two properties are exactly alike, we dig a little deeper to discover precisely what makes a property unique and how that affects its value. Contact us today to experience first-hand the accuracy, thorough research, and efficiency of our appraisal services.

Spurgeon Appraisals regularly appraises a variety of property types. We have experience appraising farms, residences, and commercial properties. We pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service and quality appraisals. Contact our team to see how we can meet your appraisal needs and exceed your service expectations.

Matt began his career as a journalist. After spending four years as a reporter, he realized that the skills he had gained would serve him well as an appraiser. He entered the appraisal field this year and is currently working to become a Certified Residential Appraiser. His focus is on single- and multi-family residential appraisals for intended uses such as lending, divorces, estate planning and taxes, future sales, and appraisal reviews.  Matt grew up in Monmouth, Illinois and graduated from Monmouth College in 2014 with a bachelor's degree in English. His hobbies include hiking, kayaking and running with his blue heeler. He will also be a contributor to this monthly newsletter.

VISIT OUR IMPROVED WEBSITE

by Stan Choate, Appraisal Tech / Valuation Associate

January 2017

Here at the end of year, we've been busy making changes to our website, making it more suitable to serve the needs of our customers. The website displays a brand new look, smoother navigation, and a few new features.

For those of you who are more visually oriented, we have added several videos throughout the site explaining our services. On our homepage, you can now watch an overview of our company and the appraisal process. You can also watch other videos dedicated to our departments for homefarm, or commercial appraisals.

The new website also reflects our ever-expanding coverage area. We now have an office in Fayette, Missouri, allowing us to appraise more farms in that area. And our commercial appraiser is now able to travel to every corner of Missouri, Illinois, and Iowa.

We hope you will give Spurgeon Appraisals opportunities in the coming year to show our dedication to thorough, professional appraisal services.

OUR COVERAGE AREA EXPANDS

by Stan Choate, Office Manager

November 2015

Spurgeon Appraisals has spent the past few years building a reputation for professional, reliable appraisals throughout northeastern Missouri, western Illinois, and southeastern Iowa. Our name has been spreading throughout this region, and we have found ourselves doing more work across an ever-growing area to answer requests for our services. Since we have been doing appraisals in these more distant counties, we have decided to widen our official coverage area to include a total of fifty counties. We now provide agricultural and commercial appraisals in the counties shown below within the red border.

This expansion of our company has only been possible because of the loyalty of our clients. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued business over the past several years. We hope that our expanded service area will give us even more opportunities to work with you in the future.
