Calvin E. Gardner, MAI, is the President of Gardner Consulting Services, Inc., and has been providing real estate appraisal and consultation services in Orlando and the Central Florida area as well as throughout the state for over 22 years. The primary business of Gardner Consulting Services, Inc., is the appraisal of residential and commercial real estate; however, we also perform brokerage services (Old Florida Properties), market studies, site selection, and litigation support. Our assignments are mostly in Central Florida, including the Counties of Orange, Seminole, Lake, Osceola, Polk, Volusia, and Brevard. However, we have worked throughout the State of Florida as well as other States in the southeast.

Gardner Consulting Services, Inc., has a combined staff of nine associates, including State Certified General and State Certified Residential Appraisers. Our size allows for a diversity of specializations and the ability to obtain the best data and technical equipment to perform assignments.

Our residential appraisals include single and multiple family homes, vacant lots, townhouses, and condominiums. Our commercial appraisers perform office buildings, condominium developments, housing subdivisions, planned developments, shopping centers, restaurants, net leased.

Commercial Real Estate - Our commercial department includes valuation and consulting on a wide variety of property types and services. Most appraisals are for mortgage financing with banks and institutions, but also includes appraisals and consulting for estate planning, asset management, and litigation, including eminent domain, divorce, partnership splits, bankruptcy, title discrepancies, and general real estate disputes. We provide a variety of appraisal formats, including complete self-contained narratives, summary appraisals, and limited scope appraisals.

Estate Specialists - Settling an estate is very important and can be stressful. The executor has many duties and responsibilities which require the executor to follow a specific legal process which is regulated by state statutes and federal laws. The IRS requires well documented appraisals prepared by appraisers who hold a designation with real estate appraisal experience with an understanding of the IRS real property valuation guidelines.

Attorneys and accountants rely on our understanding on valuing real property values for estate purposes, divorce, or other dispute purposes. Often for estate purposes, there is a date of death value for determining the fair market value of the property needed for the evaluation. We ensure the fullest degree of discretion and confidentiality which binds our company through the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

You can count on us to expedite all your estate needs and understanding the sensitivity to the feelings of everyone involved. Our client base includes attorneys, accountants, and estate executors.

Residential Appraisals – Residential appraisals are provided for a variety of reasons. Whether you are looking to refinance, purchase your first home or want a pre-listing appraisal to determine the listing price, an appraisal can help you make better decisions. We provide an unbiased opinion of a fair market value on the property for your specific needs. We also offer FHA appraisals for loans backed by the Federal Housing Administration which have specific requirements, guidelines and certification.

We have experience with all types of residential properties ranging from a typical single family dwelling to large custom homes, condominiums, multi-family properties (apartment and duplex units) and vacant residential land. Our company offers high quality appraisals with minimum turnaround time, including electronic ordering and delivery systems for convenience and time constraints.

At Gardner Consulting Services, Inc. we are very familiar with the current markets around all of Central Florida. The market has experienced significant value swings in the past few years and we work hard to keep pace with current valuation expectations to adequately reflect the market.
