Top ten reasons why it is great to be an appraiser:
1. Dazzle your friends with your knowledge of external obsolescence.
2. Enjoy the wonderful world of rats, bats, and spiders.
3. Join the profession blamed for the collapse of the financial world.
4. See places in people’s houses that usually require a search warrant to access.
5. Arouse the suspicion of an entire neighborhood when inspecting comparable sales.
6. Get a chance to irritate annoying real estate salespeople.
7. Walk around holding a clipboard just like “Skipper” at the Jiffy Lube.
8. Spend hours researching comps to justify the market value of a property you decided on when you pulled into the driveway.
9. Find out that some people really do hang black velveteen pictures of Elvis in their living room.
10. Be one of a handful of people who know that USPAP is not a medical term.”

The REO or Short Sale Appraisal

nana smith

I have 15-years’ experience as a residential appraiser for Fairfield County, Connecticut. I have extensive, and historically, excellent experience in Real Estate Owned (REO) appraisals for both lenders and various other.

My areas of expertise are mostly comprised in the Lower portion of Fairfield County, particularly; Stamford, Norwalk, Greenwich, New Canaan, Darien, Fairfield and Bridgeport.

Having based my company locally in Stamford, CT has afforded me the ability to stay on top of the current market in Lower Fairfield County as well as gaining comprehensive knowledge of the local REO market.

I have working knowledge of expenses acquired through residential single-family, in both owner-occupied and leased properties.

Along with being a certified appraiser, I am also a licensed real estate agent, which keeps me up to date on current market conditions.

Please feel free to contact us.

As an appraiser, real estate investor, Realtor; I am always on the go! My passion is real estate. My love for real estate started than I first stepped onto American soil, the land of opportunity! 15 years ago.A few months after my arrival, I lived and managed at a small B&B in New Canaan, while going to school, here, in Norwalk, for Hotel Restaurant Management. However, I shortly discovered that real estate was my calling.
When I started out, the first two years I did property assessment for Sabre Appraisal Division in New Canaan, CT. While with them, I diligently took courses and studied to become a licensed Certified CT Assessor, thereafter a licensed appraiser, then to top it off, a licensed Realtor! All part of my master plan to be entrenched in the real estate world.
As a residential appraiser for 12 years now, I have gotten the opportunity to go inside homes all over the county and state. I have appraised 100 of dozens of homes in Fairfield County. I truly think the more complicated the property, the better I appraise it, my Ph.D. analytical thinking helps me here a lot.
I reside in Stamford, CT with my husband of 10 years, who works the appraisal side of the business with me. I hold a Ph.D. degree from my home country in Physics. My two sons leave in California; one has his doctorate in political scientist and philosophy and is a professor at Claremont University, the other is an entrepreneur, President/CEO of his start-up company.
As a person that cannot sit still, in my free time I love to travel, to antique, do photography, cook and entertain my friends. I believe in giving in life, without expecting to get back. This is what brings me the utmost joy, yet being rewarded for a good job done, is as important and satisfying or equal to the joy of helping.
