In weighing the expert testimony of an appraiser, the court considers the appraiser’s demonstrated qualifications to form an opinion, the appraiser’s relationship and prior dealings with the petitioner, the appraiser’s selections of comparative sales, the appraiser’s familiarity and contact with the potential market for the [subject] property, and, the appraiser’s familiarity with the contributed material. Hiring the experienced staff or associates of Just Appraisers will ensure that your expert witness meets the qualifications, professionalism and impartiality that the court demands while providing a comprehensive, fact based appraisal.
