Integra Realty Resources – South Carolina

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Integra Realty Resources – South Carolina

I try not to use this website to promote my business too often, but occasionally, I’ll get an email asking for information on what we do. Integra is a national appraisal firm with over 60 offices. I am the managing director of the Columbia, SC and Greenville, SC offices, although we have done appraisal work throughout the state including the Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Florence, Hilton Head, Bluffton, Spartanburg and Aiken markets. Our appraisal staff includes three MAI designated appraisers and in total, the staff has over 100 years of combined experience. Personally, I have been in the appraisal profession full-time since 1985, where I worked in Charlotte, NC for five years.

In addition to traditional real estate valuation work, we routinely complete market rent studies for medical office buildings and feasibility studies for apartments and senior housing developments. With tax bills being mailed soon, we can also assist with real property tax appeals, so keep that in mind. One of the newer services that we offer is working with banks to ensure that their real estate appraisal process meets federal guidelines. Our appraisal management division operates a little different than most, since the fee appraisers invoice the bank directly instead of invoicing Integra. This provides a higher level of transparency that the regulators like.

What we don’t do is sell real estate. That way, there is no conflict of interest and the users of our services can have confidence that their rent roll doesn’t end up in the wrong hands. No broker or leasing agent should have access to an appraisal file…..but they do in many cases.

Let me know if we can assist with any of your real estate needs.

Michael B. Dodds, MAI, CCIM
