Hi, my name is Paul Rowe and I’m the Owner and Chief appraiser at Rowe Appraisal Group. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing. After working in sales for a few years, I decided it was time for a change. I shadowed a family friend for a few weeks and made the life changing decision to begin my journey of learning the appraisal business. Over the next few years, I sought out the best appraisers in the Chicago area in an effort to obtain the best training possible.
By the time I was able to leave the world of an “appraiser trainee” and become a Certified Residential Appraiser, I was able to work for and learn from 5 different local appraisal companies. Learning from different mentors allowed me to learn many different techniques and methodologies of valuing residential properties. If you were to get an appraisal from 5 different appraisals on the same property, you may get 3-5 slightly different values. It was learning all of these different approaches and thought processes along with my nearly 10 years of experience appraising in the Chicago market that has allowed me to have the skills to provide you with an extremely thorough appraisal report.
