Testimonials for Kenneth Rossman
Chuck Brannon, Pastor - Gateway Community Church11/26/2014
I'm glad to recommend Ken Rossmann, Appraiser, to you with high marks. He recently completed a land appraisal for Gateway Community Church. His work was well done, accurate, complete, on time and met all the needs we had in seeking the appraisal to sell our property. As a result we signed a contract with our potential buyer and the appraisal was right on target.
Very importantly, his price for the work was reasonable and the value we received enabled us to move forward in our goals.
Chuck Brannon, Pastor
Gateway Community Church
I contacted Ken for a last minute appraisal on a residential real estate transaction. He was immediately responsive and even agreed to meet me at the property the next day (which was a Saturday.) He finished the appraisal very quickly and I was so happy with the quality of his work. He was able to locate information about the property which ended up being very important in the negotiation/closing process. I would absolutely recommend him and I will use his services again.
I am writing this letter to say thank you for all your professional guidance and assistance in developing an appraisal for my home in West Palm Beach.
You were very cordial, on time, not only for our appointment but also in finalizing the appraisal within 3 days of your review.
Thank you also for spending time to explain your conclusions and educating me on the process of how the market works today.
You had some great pictures of my home and I have used them to market my home on various websites.
I highly recommend any person whom is looking for an appraisal for their home should contact you for your expert knowledge and services.
We're a non-profit in NY and were gifted some empty land in S Florida. Donor requested appraisal for tax purposes. Ken was highly recommended and proved worthy of it. Professional, timely, detailed report and fair price add up to top notch!
I needed an appraisal to help me decide on a listing price for my home that I am selling in Ocean Ridge. I found Ken through searching for a real estate appraiser on Google. I called and Ken answered the phone which is a first sign of a good company. I explained what I wanted and Ken said he could have the appraisal completed within 2 days. He did a thorough job and as promised I had the appraisal in 2 days. I have no reservation is recommending Ken to someone that is looking for a professional service that is super responsive.
" I am a New York State Certified real estate appraiser for over 15 years and I frequently get requests for appraisals of commercial properties. I always refer the client to Ken who is very professional, courteous and his prices are very fair and competitive. His appraisal reports are accurate, extremely thorough and his turn around time is fast"
Ken Rossman performed an appraisal for me recently. He was very professional, courteous and completed the assignment quickly. I received the report via email which was very helpful to me. I would highly recommend him to any one needing an appraisal.
Hi Ken, I would like to thank you for your excellent service. I am very happy with your appraisal, and your very fast service. I will recommend you to any one who could use your service. It was a pleasure dealing with you.
Excellent knowledge of appraisals and will help you with any situation.
I found Ken Rossman listing on the internet. All of our communication was via email. I was completely satisfied with the appraisal and the comprehensive and detailed report he provided me within a timely manner. I will not hesitate to recommend Ken to family and friends.
