What is an Appraisal?
At Velardo Appraisal Group, the appraisal process starts by identifying your individualized needs. We will schedule a walk-through inspection – which leads to brief explanation of what we look for and what you can expect on your appointment. We will then perform our appraisal inspection, such as gather and discuss any specific relevant property characteristics. That’s when the real work begins. Since an appraisal is an estimated current market valuation process, we take all that unique information, coupled with the most appropriate, relevant and up to date sales data in order to develop final value opinion.

I was born and raised in Medina, Ohio. Graduated with honors from both Medina High School and the University of Akron, with a Bachelor’s in Corporate Financial Management.
As a second-generation Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser, I was first exposed to the world of appraising growing up watching my mom, Charlene. I worked alongside her until I took over the business in 2015 upon her unfortunate passing from breast cancer.
It is with great pride and determination I want to continue to develop and grow the business that my mom started. Most importantly, in a way that will make it my own, while still making her proud.
