About Snowdon Valuation

Commercial Real Estate Appraisal Services for the Hudson Valley, Capital, Saratoga, and Adirondack Regions of New York State

I hope you’ll find this website informative and useful. If you’d like to check my appraisal qualifications (learn what type of experience I’ve had, or the services I provide), you can do that at the bottom of this page.  Above all, please feel free to contact me by mail, e-mail,  or telephone.


I’ve made a career out of performing difficult appraisals on complex properties- the ones other appraisal firms wouldn’t take on. The tougher assignments are best performed by an experienced one-person firm, like Snowdon Valuation.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t accept the less complex commercial, industrial, and vacant land assignments. I still enjoy doing them and my experience with the more complex assignments adds to my ability to perform the smaller property appraisals.

I also accept multi-discipline assignments involving real property (real estate) and other appraisal specialities such as personal property (fine art, antiques, furnishings), machinery and equipment, and business value through my membership in the American Society of Appraisers (ASA). ASA is a multi-discipline society of appraisers who work together to appraise the total property value in such assignments as hotels, hospitals, convenience stores, and others. ASA appraisers are unique in their ability to put together the right team of appraisers for the assignment.
