**** WE'VE MOVED ***
We are so excited to be in our new office located at:
4641 Spyres Way, Suite 4, Modesto, CA 95356

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 28 years, making friends wherever we go! 



Our Modesto (main) office is staffed by Rich Paddock and Jeanine Kraus.

  • Stanislaus County: All of Stanislaus County including Modesto, Turlock, Ceres, Keyes, Patterson, Hughson, Oakdale, Newman, and Riverbank
  • San Joaquin County: Escalon, Ripon, Manteca, Tracy, Stockton
  • Northern Merced County: Delhi, Newman, Gustine, Livingston

We appraise properties for lenders (Conventional, FHA, and FHA Reverse mortgages), divorce proceedings, eminent domain, estate planning, date of death valuation, proposed construction, and other purposes.

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 30 years, we have become part of them! Rich Paddock is very involved with the Oakdale Rotary Club, and Jeanine Kraus belongs to Soroptimist International of Modesto North.  Our involvement with these local service groups is one of our ways of giving back to our community.
