With three-regional offices to serve your appraisal needs Christine Pyle Banks, senior appraiser and mother to Christopher Pyle and Jennifer Smith, is happy to offer her community a locally based business with an attention to detail and quality customer service.

“Working with my children in a business I built was not a planned path; however, I’m grateful to be able to work with my family and share this stage of our journey together. We each bring a different strength: I spent years in the foothills as a licensed real estate agent which allows me a different perspective to the marketplace. Christopher has spent years in school and has owned multiple businesses which allows him a specialized writing skill with an attention to detail and Jennifer has a drive and work ethic unrivaled, she’s our go to when time constraints are tight. Too, Jennifer and I have worked to a higher license level and are FHA approved. The office can pretty much do it all when it comes to residential appraisals. We’re excited to offer competency

and humanity to a business that all too often lacks both.”
