I specialize in insurance appraisals for private sector building construction including multifamily residential, commercial, industrial and bare land/ common element properties.

Throughout my time at Suncorp, I have had the opportunity to experience and work on a large variety of assignments, from standard industrial appraisals, to multi-family, office, retail, agricultural and development land, as well as appraisals for a number of special use properties.
