I'm a commercial real estate appraiser based in Lowell, Massachusetts. I have been in the appraisal business for over 25 years. I started as a research assistant at T.H. Reenstierna & Sons in Arlington, MA. Later I moved on to start my own company, providing commercial real estate sales data to appraisers. About 1995 I started working for Eric Reenstierna Associates as a trainee appraiser and in 2007 I became a Certified General Appraiser in the state of Massachusetts. I have worked on many property types, from small commercial condominium units to large industrial facilities. My primary area is the Merrimack Valley, but I take on assignments just about anywhere. I am also happy to share data with other appraisers. I am a candidate member of the Massachusetts Board of Real Estate Appraisers and I am on their Government Affairs Committee.
