John Grichine, Residential Appraiser

Northstar Appraisal has been in business since 2006. We provide a wide range of appraisal products; we offer everything from BPO’s to light commercial, FHA, divorce and estate related valuation services. We pride ourselves in thorough, timely, credible and reliable valuation methodology. With a cumulative licensing experience exceeding 40 years, there is no valuation request that we cannot tackle. From studio-sized condominiums, dome-shaped custom homes, manufactured and mobile homes, garden homes, townhomes and ocean-front properties to 14,000 square foot custom-built villas and mansions, our experience and background has given us the opportunity to appraise just about every type of residential property imaginable. Our experience in light commercial and light industrial valuation is not as renown, but is nothing to frown about either. Our fees are very competitive and our turn-times are among industry leading.

As the founder, owner and chief appraiser of Northstar Appraisal, I vow to do our best in completing any and all appraisal assignment. I guarantee great quality, timely completion and a professional, friendly and courteous customer service. Working in the appraisal profession since 2003 and licensed since 2004, I have seen a wide range of market conditions in both the residential and commercial real estate markets. With expertise and valuation experience between San Diego and San Francisco, we are your appraisal company of choice for California (we concentrate our practice to San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles and Riverside counties, but will appraise Central and Northern California markets in some circumstances).
