    Connors Appraisals Inc
    I cannot speak to this individual's competence as a house appraiser since I ultimately have chosen not to hire him. In healthcare, we have a saying though that often times a brilliant provider can only get so far with poor bedside manner. The same applies to those in the service industry. This individual may be competent at his work (I do not know this to be true based on my interaction); however, he started our conversation with minimal information about the job I was interested in and indicated that I probably didn't want to hire him. He said it would cost me $550 for an appraisal of my property and he would do a very extensive job which others could do for cheaper if I only needed a written value for the house, but "you get what you pay for." When I asked if he could email me his credential and designation information, he became defensive and indicated that he received 5-6 such calls from people like me each day and so he couldn't spend an extensive amount of time on each person and that people typically hired him based on his website and what was discussed on the phone. He also went on to say that he typically work on complicated cases from lawyers that involved multimillion dollar properties or other complicated issues. He actually stated "I do not mean to be disrespectful..." In my experience, if someone starts a sentence with "I do not mean to be XXX," the opposite is in fact true. This is basic leadership communication training. So in a sense, my perception was that a job such as mine was small potatoes for him. Which is fine. If you only take a job that meets a certain dollar minimum or value for property, I don't have any problem with that, but then make that abundantly clear to the consumer, but do it in a friendly manner. Secondly, even if he's the best at what he does and has a skyrocketing IQ, this is clearly an individual who has low EQ and hasn't mastered the art of customer service. It's really unfortunate because his background is in line with what I was looking for, and his quote did not concern me, but his attitude made it clear to me that this would NOT be an individual I would like to work with. What ever happened to showing a little bit of kindness in dealing with potential customers?

    The whole process went extremely well. We found Rick Phillips of Appraisals Guaranteed through Angie's List, attracted by his "All A" ratings from previous customers. We can say without hesitation that from beginning to end, Mr. Phillips' services lived up to that sterling rating. The home appraisal was easy to schedule by telephone, within a week. Mr. Phillips arrived on time; asked very good and detailed questions that would not have occurred to us; and photographed the property from all angles and directions. When Mr. Phillips delivered the appraisal report on a timely basis, it was the most detailed, carefully researched appraisal product that either of us had ever seen. The comparable properties in North Arlington were extensively researched, beyond our expectations. The insights on the property itself and the state of the market in our specific neighborhood were very useful. The bottom line appraised value of the property was fair and reasonable, well within the range we had expected. Throughout the process Rick Phillips was personable, easy to reach by phone or e-mail and transparent. His fee was more than reasonable for the product we received. We would and will recommend his services to anyone we know seeking a home appraisal in Northern Virginia. Elaina Newport and John Romano, 10/23/2019

    FERNWOOD ESTATE SALES
    Can not say enough good things for Ann Garagusi and Fernwood. Came in, promoted the estate sale and in the space of 5 days, sold furniture, furnishings and household items, found donations for non-salables, managed a last minute HVAC service issue and completely cleared out the remainder of the house in time prior to closing, and all while we were 1,000 miles away in our new home. Don't know how we could have completed the sale so completely and efficiently without Fernwood.

    I contacted Rick on the phone. He promptly put me on his schedule and within days, he came out and walked the property. During the entire process, Rick was very professional, extremely knowledgeable and detail-oriented. The purpose of the appraisal was to dispute the county's assessment. I am very satisfied with the appraisal and will definitely seek out Rick's services in teh future. I highly recommend Rick! He took the stress out of the process.

    Citywide Services
    Mike Walsh was very polite and professional.   I live in the Washington DC area I needed my mom's house appraised in Chicago.  Because I knew no one, I resorted to "cold calling."  A Google search led me to Citywide Services.  I was very pleased with how responsive Mike was.  He was so nice, I used his services twice! If you are seeking a great appraiser in the Chicagoland area, look no further.

    The appraisal process went very well. I contacted Rick a few days before. He was available on a Saturday, came out to the property as promised, and we had the report by Monday. The appraisal report considered 5 comps to arrive at the value for the house which was very helpful in final negotiations with the sellers. Rick was professional, reliable and easy to deal with. I would certainly use him again and recommend to others.
