Trust is KEY

Liz was professional & responded quickly to my inquiries about an appraisal.

She explained what is happening in the real estate market and how values are accurately determined.

Our property is unique in size and location. There is also a dock, which added another layer of issues.

We live in South Lake Tahoe, so working with someone I can Trust is KEY to our relationship.

Liz scheduled a meeting with us when we planned to be on San Juan.

Her experience combined with the ability to communicate, confirmed she was absolutely the right choice!

We would recommend Liz in a heartbeat!!

Friendly, professional, timely

My husband recently passed away and, of course, there was a multitude of details that had to be attended to.  One was to have an appraisal of my home at the date of his death.  This was on short notice, but Liz was willing to meet my deadline.  She came to my home, was very friendly and professional.  She was timely in getting what I needed done and met all details.

I would strongly recommend her and deeply appreciated all she did to ease my mind at that particular time.

Thank you, Liz!

True to her word

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!”

Professional yet warm

July 20, 2018

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.

Detailed and thorough

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.

Absolutely outstanding!

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!
