Our mission is to provide solutions to whatever valuation question you may have!


We specialize in residential  and commercial real estate appraising for almost any purpose. We have extensive experience in our local real estate market that enables us to value properties for lending, legal and estate purposes. We have the knowledge and background to lend our expertise to legal proceedings should the need arise.

We are a small, local firm with two offices dedicated to providing exceptional service to our local communities. We have been in business for 26 years, making friends wherever we go!

We specialize in REO appraisals for clients facing foreclosure or lenders who obtain properties through foreclosure proceedings.  Each appraisal is unique and determined by the client’s needs. We work very closely with each client to ensure that we are providing the appropriate solution to their individual need. 

We live in the communities we serve and over the last 25 years, we have become part of them!  Rich Paddock is very involved with the Oakdale Rotary Club, Jeanine Kraus belongs to Soroptimist International of Modesto North and Jack & Tammy Paddock belong to the Lions Club of Lake Don Pedro.
