My mother, Rochelle Anderson, was a very successful realtor in the 1970s and 1980s. I started as a real estate agent and appraiser during my sophomore year at LSU, forty years ago. I like real estate in general but I really love being able to use fair and objective standards to evaluate a property’s value so that owners and potential owners know what they have. Property values fluctuate but having definable appraisal standards that are fair to everyone provides a measure of stability. I have been doing this long enough that I have also learned what upgrades a property owner can make that will give them the most value for the most money. I particularly enjoy providing that service for people because home ownership and remodeling can be expensive and everyone needs someone they can trust to advise them.
