Raising appraising standards.
Republic Valuations is a full-service real estate appraisal and consultancy firm offering localized insights throughout the majority of the US.
Making Decisions InformedTM
For over two decades, Republic Valuations has partnered with financial institutions, real estate investors, estate planners and property owners to identify and document the full, honest value in each property.
Beyond algorithmic software or generic comps, we fuse local understanding, specialized expertise and national infrastructure, applying these strengths to each property on a thorough and case-by-case basis.
The Republic's Constitution
Turn findings into financial guidance
We understand that we sell a tool, not a product.
Our insights and evaluations help shape financial decisions for the long term. So we leverage our specialties to inform the most sensible, profitable corporate action. Especially in situations where others are unable to arrive at a sound conclusion.
Keep boots on the ground
In today's tech world, we could use robo-tools or compromise with virtual site visits.
But we know that our clients know the difference. So we insist on real, local, human representation in every single territory we serve.
Tell the full truth, and nothing but
Sometimes, real value is hidden. Or presumed value is nonexistent. Our job is uncovering the truth.
We promise clients the basis of real data and honest equity. We never embellish what isn't there-or miss what is. Every i dotted. Every t crossed. Zero corners cut.
Expertise you can count on.
