Dave Sanders
National Development Services

“Colorado Appraisal Consultants were great.  We were in need of appraisals for a funding requirement and they were able to meet our deadline even with the enormous complexity of the properties and improvements being appraised.  All deadlines and scope of work was completed either on time or ahead of time.”


“Thank you for your prompt, competent service, which is what I wanted. Your website indicated a variety of levels of service available for a client’s needs and that caught my attention. I am most favorably impressed with your competency in providing me with the information for a baseline current perspective for my property. I do not throw money around, but I am adding a $50.00 tip to your fee in appreciation.”
