When you buy a home, your mortgage lender will want to know whether the house you are interested in buying is worth the amount you are willing to spend. They need to check out the house for anything that can devalue or increase the property's worth. To do this, they require home appraisals for all borrowers.

I am The Mowery Group’s newest South Riverside local real estate expert. I moved to Temecula in 1986, and in the years of living in the area I have gained a significant amount of knowledge of Temecula Valley communities. As a result, my expertise is focused on clientele buying and selling homes in the Temecula Valley area to cities as far north as Perris and Nuevo. My primary goal is to ensure a smooth, stress-free transaction from initial contact through closing, and ultimately to make lifelong friends along the way. I’m analytical by nature and have a strong background of over 18 years in the commercial real estate appraisal industry. I’ve found a new passion in helping people find their dream homes, and nothing makes me happier than handing over a brand new set of keys! For all your real estate needs, you can trust me!
"I am the Mowery Group senior residential appraiser, specializing primarily in estate management and legal bankruptcy assignments, having prepared numerous reports for individuals who successfully obtained Chapter 7 protection from the Central District Federal Bankruptcy Court. I trained with Mowery Group founder and senior appriaser Donald Mowery, and helped him establish the Mowery Group in 2001. I obtained an associate degree from Delgado Community College, New Orleans; a bachelors degree from West Virginia University; and my master of science in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Redlands. My approach emphasizes customer service, based upon being readily available to clients, and by ensuring that the "Intended Users" understand the appraisal process as well as the results of the appraisal report. Client objectives as well as the Scope of Work often differ from one assignment to another, although appropriate due diligence and comprehensive market research allow an appraiser to maintain his independence and objectivity without sacrificing traditional customer service values. The Mowery Group mission that emphasizes local markets allows the firm and its appraisers to become real property experts throughout various local communities.
