Clemson University Students Battle in Appraisal Competition


Clemson University‚Äôs Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program recently held an “appraisal competition” among the second year graduate students. I was asked to serve as a judge, along with the following real estate professionals.

  • Chuck Walsh, MAI, Director Of Sales, The Reserve at Lake Keowee
  • Nick French, Professor in Real Estate & DTZ Fellow in CRE, Oxford Brookes University
  • Bruce A. Kellogg, MAI, ARGUS Software, Past National President – Appraisal Institute

The students were divided into teams of five, and the properties to be appraised including flex buildings, a grocery anchored retail center with excess land and outparcels, an office building and several properties involved in a land swap – none of them were easy properties! The students did great, both with their reports and their PowerPoint presentations. This Clemson program is top notch and in good hands under the guidance of Dr. J. Terrence Farris, CRE, AICP and Elaine M. Worzala. I fully expect these students to go on to do great things in the real estate profession!
