Florida Auto Diminished Value Appraiser Reviews

Amy H (Florida)- Dear Frank, I am remiss in thanking you for your expert testimony in my auto diminished value case. Thank you! You did an amazing job just as Bill had predicted. You are grace under pressure and you came across as knowledgeable and trustworthy, and I love that State Farm’s attorney couldn’t rattle you one bit. I truly appreciate your time and expertise, and it was so nice to meet you. If you find yourself in this neck of the woods I’d love to take you out for good sushi! Have a wonderful week, Fondly, Amy

Attorney Fausto R (Florida)- Franklin— I thought I’d let you know Geico settled this claim for $2k even, which I’ll take as a win. Thanks for your help on this one! It took some back and forth with educating the DV team that their State Farm 17C schedule is completely arbitrary and defective. They also used KBB and edmunds as a basis for determining the DV and, notably, didn’t hire their own DV expert. When I pointed this out in a nasty response letter, they quickly paid the $2k. Again, thanks for your help. I’ll keep sending you any cases I come across.

William B (Florida)- I think you did a nice job in a very professional manner. Your standard wording in your reports is much like the standard wording in real estate appraisal reports, but it does a very professional job of setting up the reader to either agree with your methodology and diminished value conclusion and not allowing the insurance companies to discredit your report. They may disagree with your value conclusion, but not how you arrived at your value. Thanks again for the fine professional job.
