PAM,

I live in Allegheny County, but I don't do litigation work. The only reason I don't is I have only been doing this 5 years and certified 2. When I am across the stand from an SRA or MAI with 25 years, I'm immediately discredited.

I could probably find some names for you.

Pam,

There are a bunch of MAIs/SRAs within a 20 mile radius of the zip code for Elizabeth, PA (15037) on the AI's website. I don't know if this case involves a residential, commercial, mixed use, or other property but here is link: http://www.appraisalinstitute.org/s...0&ord=name&npp=10&wc=1&dno=Y&sa=N&tbm=B&vpl=S.
I would be willing to help but, like my esteemed collegue Mr. Nordquist, I have been doing this for about 5 years with 2 years certified and would probably be similarly discredited against an MAI/SRA. Also, I am located in "other-end-of-the-universe", PA (just outside of Philly) so I would be geographically incompetant to help out in this particuar case anyway.

Best of luck to you!!!

The instructor for my courses at the AI in Pittsburgh was Mark V. Smeltzer, SRA. I believe he described a good percentage of his work involved litigation. I'm sure you'll be able to find him through the link that Ed provided.

Elizabeth is a dump, my guess the home value was inflated. Worked with Mark for a number of years, don't know if he does litigation work. Email me if you want, but I charge 500/day.

My link was only for a 20 mile radius from Elizabeth's zip code. Ironically enough, I was looking for him in that link and was surprised to not find him. His info is in this link: http://www.appraisalinstitute.org/s...id09=&pid10=&tbm=B&vpl=S&sbmt3.x=70&sbmt3.y=6.

You might not want to tell him that a bunch of his former students recommended him... he might make our next class a lot harder! :icon_mrgreen:

Mark Smeltzer was my mentor when i started. He also lived near Elizabeth township when I was working with him so he will know that area very very well. I bless the instruction i got from him in the beginning and would not hesitate one second to call him if i had a problem he could help with.
