The Property & Acquisition Specialist 2 or 3 will assist in negotiating acquisitions needed for highway construction from commercial, residential, agricultural, and industrial parcels. The PAS 2 or 3 acts as the lead agency representative to property owners and the public, coordinating the flow of information and activities between owners and staff from other disciplines for each assignment.

We are looking for someone who has an extensive background in real estate with an emphasis in eminent domain acquisition.

MAI or Certified General Appraiser | Seattle, WA (posted 10/22/2019)

MAI or Certified General Appraiser | Appraisal Group of the Northwest LLP | Bellevue, WA

We are a small, full-service appraisal firm (office, commercial, industrial, and residential properties; raw land; right of way, etc.) providing services in the region for 33 years.  Our clients include private individuals, financial institutions, engineering companies, and a variety of municipal jurisdictions (city, county, state, etc.).

We are seeking an MAI or experienced Certified General Appraiser and can provide a furnished office in our suite.  Since August 2018 our staff no longer includes an MAI, but we continue to get requests from clients who require that designation, so it would be a plus.  The position would include performing appraisals and occasional review of junior appraisers’ or outside contractors’ work.  Right of way experience would also be a plus, as a good deal of our work in recent years has been right of way appraisal.  We give our appraisers control of their schedules, and aim for quality work on time.  The company pays for continuing education.

If you would like to explore the possibility of working with us, please send a letter of intent and resume/qualifications to Peggy Price, Appraisal Group of the Northwest LLP, 1409 140th PL NE, Ste. 105, Bellevue, WA  98007-3963, or e-mail them to agnw@AppraisalGroupNW.com<mailto:agnw@AppraisalGroupNW.com
