Get to know John Fariss
I started appraising over ten years ago with a firm in Orange County where we provided desktop appraisals, quality control, review appraisals and conventional appraisals. I had the unique opportunity to work with both a certified residential appraiser and a general appraiser. With each I was exposed to a wide variety of properties and appraisal projects. We valued beachfront properties, golf course properties, condos, properties up to $20 million, portfolios of properties. Assignments varied from refinances and purchases to dissolution of marriages and estate valuations.
I moved to Bakersfield in 2002 as business here was growing too fast to keep up from Orange County. Since that time I have been appraising throughout Kern County from Tehachapi and Lake Isabella to Pine Mountain Club, Delano and everything between. I launched a new website, set up phone systems, started training help, and developed great relationships with several real estate professionals in Bakersfield.
My experience with such a wide variety of appraisal products and property types helps me take on most properties out there. If you need any help with appraisal questions, don't hesitate to contact me, the Bakersfield appraiser.
