Residential Real Estate Advisor, Consultant & Appraiser

As an appraiser in Fort Lauderdale, BJ Crowley of the Gorman Group provides residential real estate appraisal services not just for Fort Lauderdale, but for the entire southeastern region of Florida.



The primary focus of our Fort Lauderdale office is on condominium appraisals. Arriving at condominium values takes in-depth market research and detailed analysis of each assignment. It takes an appraiser with knowledge of the past, an appraiser able to interpret the present, and one who will be able to provide guided expectations of the future. It also takes a good deal of common sense. You will find these things in BJ Crowley. It should also be noted that we also appraise houses, waterfront properties, townhouses, commercial properties, and industrial properties.


The Changing Landscape of Condominium Appraisal

The market in areas like Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach has suffered significantly since 2006. Prices have plummeted and ascertaining the real value of a condominium is more difficult than ever. Short sales, REO sales and other distressed sales have caused consternation for both buyers and sellers.

BJ understands the complex issues that Fannie Mae, FHA and others have placed on mortgage requirements. He's well-versed in restrictions such as the percentage of investors permitted in buildings, budgetary considerations and others.




A Unique Market Demands Unique Experience


It takes experience and familiarity with Fort Lauderdale to create accurate, timely appraisals. Known as "The Fort Lauderdale Appraiser," BJ is highly knowledgeable of local market conditions and well-versed in performing appraisals of all kinds in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding areas. In fact, he has appraised property in virtually every neighborhood, from the Gold Coast out to the Everglades.

A seasoned appraiser, BJ is experienced in performing appraisals for the purposes of Estate Planning, Insurance, Primary and Secondary Mortgages, Mortgage Refinancing, FHA, Property Tax Rebuttal, List Price, Employee Relocation and more. We provide FNMA and FHLMC reports as well as the more traditional narrative reports.

No matter what kind of appraisal you need or for what purpose, the Gorman Group appraisers of Fort Lauderdale will provide you with a well-considered, on-target appraisal for your property in the Fort Lauderdale area, and within your time frame.



From condominiums on Galt Ocean Mile to houses in Weston, make BJ your go-to residential appraiser.

NOTE : If you are thinking of ordering an appraisal for financing purposes, please consult with your lender first.  Federal law dictates that banks must order the appraisal - not the borrower.
