We recently had occasion to need an appraisal on our property on Lopez Island. Our search for an appraiser led us to All Islands Appraisal, LLC, Elizabeth A. Hance, Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser. Our contacts with Liz were clear, easy to understand, and the resulting appraisal fulfilled our needs promptly and efficiently. We have no hesitation in recommending Elizabeth Hance to others.

"Liz was great to work with in ordering an appraisal for our home on Orcas. She had quick and friendly communication with us throughout the process and the turnaround for the appraisal was great as well. Highly recommended!"

Liz provided an appraisal of our vacation home in the San Juan’s which included a hard to compare property. She was easy to work with, professional yet warm, timely and her appraisal was comprehensive and well documented. Our home was accessible only by private boat and Liz was flexible in dealing with the unique logistical and access challenges inherent in island living. She is honest and operates with an eye towards producing the most objective, fair and accurate appraisal possible.

I used Liz for an appraisal for an estate valuation. She was such a pleasure to deal with, as well as being very professional. She was prompt, courteous and such a lovely person. Her appraisal was very detailed and thorough. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Liz Hance, All Island Appraisal, LLC, is absolutely outstanding! From the get go, Liz was professional and quick to respond to anything our loan officer or bank needed.
The property we had Liz appraise was complex and unusual, but due to her knowledge of the San Juan area and ability to research and find comparable homes and make precise mathematical calculations, she was able to put together a clear, 38 page document that met the bank's needs in determining value.
First, Liz is from the area of the San Juans. She knows Anacortes and all the islands, so she is very familiar with all the types of homes and land in the area, current and past.
Second, the comparable homes that Liz researched and presented in our appraisal were spot on. Then, not only did she find the perfect comparables, but she showed in detailed pages of the appraisal how each house mathematically compared to the one we were looking at ourselves. It was then extremely clear how she ended up calculating her opinion of value for the property we were buying.
Third, the 38 page appraisal was well organized with a clear table of contents, detailed research, maps, photos and mathematical calculations all enabling our bank to see a very clear picture of the property. We could not have asked for more.
You need look no further if you need a professional appraisal that your bank will be able to read clearly.
We recommend Liz!

Needed an appraisal of our property for estate planning purposes. Called 6-7 appraisers in Skagit county. Liz was prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable of island life. Understood island ferries both state and county and its impact on home comps. She was timely, did what she said and was easy to work with. Would definitely recommend her and will use her in the future if I have the need.

What I appreciate about Liz is she does her homework, rolls her sleeves up and really digs in to understand the questions and anwsers. Her follow through and communication raises the bar for other professionals. If you do not work with, or network with Liz, you are missing out on a qualified team player."

"Liz recently did an appraisal for the refinancing of our home that we had recently remodeled. She did a great job and worked well with our lender in a very professional and competent manner! She made sure to find plenty of comparable properties and while walking through our home she took note of every feature we have that adds value. I really appreciated how detailed her report was. Thank you Liz!"

“Liz has the qualifications most other appraisers do not have to appraise property in this area. She has lived in Anacortes and the San Juan Islands most of her life, and has logged thousands of hours inspecting all types of properties on nearly every island, both ferry and non-ferry served. Her professionalism, competence, integrity and knowledge of the area is unsurpassed. I highly recommend Liz for your next appraisal.”
Gary W. San Juan Island May 9, 2017
"Liz and I worked together closely for four years; I have personal knowledge of her appraisal work and her personal and professional ethics. I would recommend her, without reservation, to anyone wishing to have a thorough and competent appraisal performed."
