Clients and Lenders | Testimonials


“It has been wonderful working with Chantal Griffin. On every property we work on, she has the utmost professional and positive attitude. Chantal accommodates rush orders and travels long distances without a complaint and her turnaround times are among the quickest of all appraisers. Her reports are very detailed and she is lender conscious on all appraisals, from the $95,000 one bedrooms in Santa Rosa to the multi-million dollar mansions in Ross. What impresses me about Chantal is her complete understanding of all the different markets in the Bay Area and her grasp of the wide ranging nuances of each neighborhood. Chantal’s solution-oriented approach is critical especially as lenders become more difficult to work with.”

“I met Chantal at a Chamber of Commerce mixer several years ago and since then, I have been using her as my appraiser of choice. Chantal is responsive, thorough and trustworthy. She always returns calls in a timely manner and makes corrections promptly. In this turbulent market, Chantal is always more than willing to check comps to determine if our estimated value is realistic. I would highly recommend Griffin Appraisals.”
