James has vast experience working with estates, trusts, courtroom support, date of death valuations, relocations, and many other difficult valuations and appraisals. His clients include families, homeowners, Realtors, attorneys, CPA's and divorcing partners. He personally attends to each situation, never sending out a new trainee, and always develops a report that is " ready for the judge".
With all this experience, Mr. Ebert has also found that many folks hire him to advise them with their real estate purchase, often for investment purposes or for a son or daughter attending an away school. This allows the decision- making team to include an impartial third party, who can research the local market as only an appraiser can, right down to which neighborhoods and grade schools are the best, and why.
As a consultant, Mr. Ebert has assisted dozens of families throughout Southern California, and armed with his grasp of the sales in the market, he has saved many thousands of dollars for his clients. His pre-purchase appraisals can steer away from a poor choice, to a better, more valuable opportunity. This is especially helpful for out-of-area investors or families with college students.
Centrally located just outside of Los Angeles, Mr. Ebert works the region from Santa Barbara to San Diego. Check out his website at www.eas2.org.
