Welcome to the Nordal Appraisal.com blog!
My name is Craig A. Nordal and I have been a full time professional Real Estate Appraiser since 1989. I have been serving CPA's and accountants for estate and tax appraisal purposes as well as lawyers for divorce and property disputes for 22 years now!
If you are looking for a seasoned real estate expert and qualified and highly articulate expert witness you have come to the right place! As noted in my web site at NordalAppraisal.com I now have completed and reviewed over 11,000 appraisals since August 1989. I am a California State Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser.
Over the course of 22 years I have appraised almost every imaginable residential property including ocean front and ocean close estates (a specialty), Rancho Santa Fe sprawling Estate Homes, vacant land, horse properties, citrus and avocado groves, nurseries, and small income properties (1-4 units). I have also appraised the largest estate in Del Mar (close to the "snake wall property") for an estate valuation.
My court experience is now extensive having appeared in court dozens of times in various capacities for depositions and expert witness testimony for divorce and dissolutions, and a variety of expert witness experiences including property built on or over a lot line, square footage discrepancies, lender and appraisal fraud, and landscaping disputes involving views. I've represented my share of celebrities, once appearing as an expert witness in a case in a dispute of a sale of a large thoroughbred racing horse ranch in the Temecula area where proper disclosure was the issue. I have appeared in lender fraud cases involving illegal appraisal influence, and the list goes on.
