 ABOUT DAVID V. FARRELL

 He is licensed by the State of New York as a Real Estate Broker (ID#31FA1046213) and is the Broker/Owner of Village Properties of Mineola, New York.  His is the former Broker and Owner of RE/MAX Village Properties and partner in RE/MAX Village Manor and RE/MAX Village Estates.  Prior to that, he had been the founder of Station Realty in Mineola, a boutique sales shop dedicated to serving clients requiring sales of estate and trust properties.  His sales career has come full-circle as, after more than one-half dozen years as a franchisee, he has returned to a botique shop.  The three longest tenures co-workers have worked with me,  in one respect or another, for nearly one-half century in total.

 

He is also the Principal of the David V. Farrell Company, a firm whose purpose is the evaluation and disposition of real and personal property.  The David V. Farrell Company acquired a portion of the Cornelius A. Heaney Company of Brooklyn, New York.  Cornelius A. Heaney, Sr. and his brother James Heaney, began the company at the time of the Great Depression.  Later, the company was turned of to Senior's son, Cornelius (Neil) A. Heaney Jr.   In 1997, David acquired the rights to certain clientele of the company and began business on his own.  To this day, David and Neil occasionally find themselves working together on estate appraisals, with David appraising the real estate and Neil handling the personal property appraisal. 

 

He has been active for more than twenty years in these fields and has maintained offices at 188 Montague Street, 488 Atlantic Avenue and (presently at 57 Willoughby Street) in Kings County, and 212 Station Plaza North and (presently at) 167 Mineola Boulevard in Mineola, Nassau County.  While David spends most of his time at 167 Mineola Boulevard in Mineola, he maintains the office on Willoughby Strete with Neil Heaney and, therefore, has had a constant presence in Kings County for well over 20 years.

 

David was fortunate enough to be hired by Neil Heaney between his Sophomore and Junior years at Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland.  (Loyola College is now known as Loyola University of Baltimore.)  While at Loyola, David studied both Political Science and Business, while excelling in the areas of accounting, statistics, economics and computer programming.  While graduating with a B.A., David was one class short of a double-major, including Business. 

 

As a Junior in college, David studied for a term at the University College Dubliin and lived in Rathfarnham.  There, he studiend European Economics, coupled with Irish History, Irish Literature and other pertinent classes.  The highlight of his time in Ireland was interviewing Roddy Doyle, who had just written the book "The Commitments" which went on to be a major motion picutre.  Doyle continued with two aditional books with the same characters "The Snapper" and "The Van", which are now known as, "The Barrytown Trilogy".  Other writings include "Paddy Clarke, Ha, Ha, Ha", "The Woman who Walked into Doors", "Paula Spencer", "A Start Called Henry", "Oh, Play That Thing!", and, most recently, "The Dead Republic."  His is possibly the most highly regarded Irish author of our times, and the first to win the fame "Booker Prize" since James Joyce.  David considers it one of his life's most enjoyable days.

 

David returned to Loyola for senior yead, after another summer working for the Cornelius A. Heaney Company in Brooklyn, New York.  Two days after graduation, David began his full-time career and has never looked back.

 

Presently, David is a Certified General Appraiser by the State of New York (ID#46-16371) and State of New Jersey (#42RG00202600) having met the experience, education and examination requirements for designation to appraise all types of real property in both states.*  See below for the extensive requirements to become Certified within the State of Nww York.  David has become a Certified General Appraiser in the Statet of New Jersey by their program of reciprocity. 

 

He has acted as an Appraiser on behalf of the Courts of the State of New York and the City of New York as well as the United States Bankruptcy Court in the Southern and Eastern Districts.

 

He is a duly licensed Auctioneer by the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA #860694) and has sold at numerous public forums for the disposition of furniture, furnishings, jewelry and personalty at auction.

 

He has acted as Auctioneer on behalf of the Supreme Court of the State of New York and the Public Administrators of various counties.

 

He has appraised, consulted and sold residential, industrial and commercial properties throughout the Metropolitan Area of New York on behalf of a wide clientele.

 

As a result of regular activity and employment in these areas, he has an extensive and current knowledge of values and methods of valuation of real and personal property.

 

While more particularly described below, Mr. Farrell's specialty is the valuation of partial interests in entities owning real property. As described:

 

Business Valuations

While David does not regularly appraisal businesses, he can provide you with assistance in that category as a Licensed Real Estate Broker.  Often, he rents or sells real estate in which a small or large portion of its value is a business within its premises.  In 2002, David acquired a mixed-commercial and residential building with a restaurant/pub, updated and converted the property, managed the bar to profitability, and sold both in 2004.  As such, he has a working knowledge and understanding of what area investors are willing to pay, and what owners may be able to obtain from the sale of their properties. 

 

By separating and understanding the ‘going-concern value’ of the business on site, coupled with the value of the real property, Mr. Farrell provides superior insight into the value of real estate in which the owner is also a business operator within the premises.  He is able to explain varying values based upon the owner remaining in possession or relinquishing possession of their business operating within the building.  Further, his appraisal background allows him to knowledgeably discuss the Highest and Best Use with the building owner who is also a tenant.

 

 However, Mr. Farrell’s areas of expertise is in the valuation C-Corporations, LLCs, FLPs, S-Corporations, and other entities which have a partial interest in real property – most especially small partial interests, he has been able to obtain discounts of up to 55% from the Internal Revenue Service and New York State Department of Taxation.  His reports are widely accepted and his testimony and consulting has been crucial in limiting the gift tax and estate tax liability of his clients.  Further, he has a team of expert witnesses who have made careers out of purchasing partial interests ready to testify on behalf of his clients, affirming his valuations.  Hiring David V. Farrell has saved clients tens of millions of dollars in estate and gift tax liabilities, when clients were unaware that partial, non-controlling interests are worthy of tremendous discounts for Lack of Marketability and Lack of Liquidity.   Mr. Farrell’s work was crucial in many recent estate valuations, including the valuation of a partial interest in a Coney Island Pier, in which Mr. Farrell’s 55% discount for one owner’s interest was upheld the day prior to the Federal Tax Court Hearing, when IRS representatives accepted his value and terminated the court case 24 hours prior to its inception.

Why not list your house or work with a Realtor with an office in your town? If the Realtor is trying to sell you on their local know-how and knowledge, ask why their offices are in other towns or even counties. This isn't Kansas, and each town here tends to have 25,000 or more residents. Work with someone who knows your area.

As an appraiser, David has performed several dozen of almost every type of property defined below.  Due to his unusual background in the business, he has actually appraised several dozen churches, schools, and convents, including cloistered convents.  These properties have rarely even been entered by anyone other than the residents.  Due to this background, he has developed one of the more extensive photographic libraries of stained glass windows from these facilities of anyone in the New York.  David has photographs of the original stained glass windows, as well as entire interior of many churches, schools and convents that have been razed.  The list shown below details the types of property appraised, but Mr. Farrell's particular area of expertise is preparation of appraisal reports for Estates, Trusts and Court Testimony.  Every appraisal he has written is a Narrative Report and no form appraisals are produced at the David V. Farrrell Company.  While I have done work on behalf of numerous banks, these appraisals are generally for their trust departments, never for mortgage lending purposes.
