Sargeant Appraisal Service is the only full-service appraisal office in southern Vermont staffed solely with MAI and SRA designated members of the Appraisal Institute;

Sean A. Sargeant, MAI, SRA and George Sargeant, SRA

We have been trained, tested and peer-reviewed in all aspects of commercial and residential real estate valuation.  We specialize in complex properties, retrospective valuations, and litigation support.  Our clients include mortgage lenders, estate administrators, attorneys, tax professionals, home sellers and home buyers.  With 30 years of experience in southern Vermont we have the expertise and data required to deliver a properly supported opinion of value in this challenging market.  Our full-time appraisers, researcher and office staff are licensed to perform all types of residential and commercial real property appraisals.  When you contact Sargeant Appraisal Service you speak with professionals.   

Our practice is built around providing valuations for commercial, mixed-use and residential real property in the six southern counties of Vermont; Addison, Bennington, Orange, Rutland, Windsor and Windham.  The old adage is true; the three most important features in a piece of real estate are location, location and location.  As a result, residentially we typically limit ourselves to Rutland and Windsor Counties as specific knowledge of the appeal of micro-neighborhoods is often necessary to complete a competent and supportable opinion of value.  However, the motivations of buyers and sellers of commercial property in southern Vermont, especially along VT Route 100 that runs from ski area to ski area along the spine of the Green Mountains, are typically similar.  While we occasionally take assignments outside of these six counties, the influence of Burlington on Chittenden County real estate  requires an appraiser who is specifically knowledgeable in that market.  If you need a Chittenden County appraisal please contact us for a referral.
