Enhance Your Appraisal Experience with Our Staff Appraisers

Our experienced, growing team of staff appraisers fuse teamwork and expertise to transform the appraisal process.

Our Story

Opteon Appraisal

In 2005, we set out to solve appraisal challenges in the Australian market, including a lack of qualified appraisers and slow turn times. By uniting our team of experienced appraisers throughout Australia and New Zealand and equipping them with world-class field technology, we found a way to not only solve these challenges, but also revolutionize the industry. Now, we’re transforming the market in the United States with our sister company, Opteon Appraisal. Since our expansion into the US, Opteon Appraisal has brought several partners under the Opteon name, including William Fall Group, Keystone Property Valuations, and Valucentric – making us one of the largest appraisal firms in the nation.

Opteon Appraisal has over 250 staff appraisers across the United States. Our growing team works together to tackle complicated orders and stay up to date on the latest in the appraisal industry. Since our team closely works together, customers can expect consistent reports, nationwide coverage, and rapid turn times.
