What our client says

Brad is a creative professional who brought a tremendous amount of value to a year-long valuation engagement. He is a fast learner and can be relied upon to deliver quality reports and analysis under tight deadlines.

Bill Duffy
Vice President Restaurant Portfolio Management at Inspire Brands

Brad worked with our firm to provide an appraisal of our company. The conclusion of the value of our firm was easy to understand and he provided an appraisal value that the ownership of our firm agreed with. He calculated multiple approaches to the valuation and explained in detail the information that each approach provided. He was available to provide alternatives for planning purposes and offered insight into strategic options as we prepare for the next few years. He was easy to work with and worked well with members of our executive team. We would definitely hire Brad and his firm again.

Phyllis Lamme
Former CEO at McFarland-Dyer & Associates (A Bowman Company)

My partner and I hired Brad’s firm to help resolve a misunderstanding regarding the value of our business and avoid a possible dispute. His analysis and report were very thorough and easily understood by all parties involved. It made the process shorter with fewer complications. Brad was always available on very short notice to answer questions and provide alternative solutions. He quickly understood the many nuances of our business. I highly recommend Brad and would hire him again..

Dave Hollister
Managing Partner at Level Seven Facilities Services

At my recommendation, my client retained Brad for purposes of conducting a valuation of the client’s business, and for consultation with regard to valuation issues. From the initial meeting, Brad was very thorough and well prepared. He was quick to respond as questions or other issues came up during the process. Brad prepared his report and provided supplemental information on a timely basis. My client and I were very happy with his work, knowledge and dedication. I highly recommend Brad.

Paul Coburn
Family Law, Partner, Levine, Smith, Snider & Wilson

I have known Brad for many years in both a corporate setting (strategic planning/acquisitions) as well as a being client of his firm later in life. He is a friend and colleague and I would highly recommend his firm to anyone needing valuation or real estate services. He leaves no stone unturned and is very analytical and ethical in his process and produces high quality work.
