"These guys gave me exactly what I needed - a true fair market value. I was looking to list my home for sale and realized that brokers & online sites like zillow were giving me different figures for my property. I called up Homeland and they told me that they will appraise it as if they were appraising it for a bank. They said that this way it would reflect the true value of a home as it would be what a bank is willing to lend on. Lo and behold their appraisal came in at exactly the same amount the bank's appraiser came in for the mortgage loan. If you want a true unbiased opinion of value, call these guys up - they definitely know what they're doing."

"It was such a pleasure working with Homeland; they were very flexible with their scheduling and fulfilled their promise of a 24-Hr Turnaround! (They saved me from my procastination!) The appraisal was for tax grievance purposes and it eventually helped me to significantly reduce my property taxes. Their certified appraisal met all the requirements set forth by the town. I would highly recommend them in the future!"
Stacey Fanara – Rye, NY
"I used this company to help settle my Father's estate. They knew what I needed even before I had a chance to explain. They provided me with a certified retrospective appraisal dated at the date of passing and were very professional throughout the whole process. I recommended them to my neighbor who was thinking of listing her home and she was very satisfied as well. Call these guys up, you can't go wrong."
