My name is Bill Falkanger and welcome to our A-Appraisals Web Site.  I began full time appraising in 1977.  Basic qualifications include:  Certified General Appraiser State of IL, ASA designation, IFAS designation, ERC member, VA and FHA approved.  I've served on the Board of Directors for the Chicago Chapter of the ASA-RPC.  Over the past several years our group has organized several successful lunch meetings which have drawn 100 +/- attendees by offering pertinent topics and speakers.  Our organization merged with the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and has been renamed the ASA-RPC.  The formal merger took place July 1, 2018.

As a general practice real estate appraisal business, our firm regularly completes assignments on a variety of commercial and residential property types.  Residential assignments are typically completed for various relocation companies, mortgage purposes, legal (typically estate/divorce), appraisal reviews, and real estate tax needs. Commercial assignments vary from industrial, retail, mixed-use, multi-family, land and numerous others. Frequently, we are requested by legal counsel to testify and remain available for depositions.

On the residential side, our firm is experienced in providing real estate valuations for properties throughout the Chicago Metropolitan area.  Our coverage area includes Lake, Cook, McHenry, Dupage, Kane and Will Counties.  For specific residential assignments, which primarily include relocation requests, our service area is narrowed to a tighter region which includes the north and northwest suburbs of Lake, Cook and McHenry Counties.

The commercial division is capable of handling assignments within this same six-county coverage area.  Assignments are regularly completed on retail, office, industrial, multi-family, mixed-use, vacant raw land and vacant land suitable for various types of development.
