Our Appraiser

Jon Gargulak, MAI brings more than 20 years of experience when assisting a wide variety of clients with their real estate. Prior to establishing a commercial real estate appraisal company in 2001, Jon gained valuable experience originating long term debt financing and managing multi-million dollar institutional grade commercial real estate throughout the country for IDS Life Insurance Company and American Express Financial Advisors.  Jon has extensive experience conducting in-depth research and analysis on complex real estate for lenders, attorneys, accountants, local, state and federal government entities, and private property owners.

With a passion for the environment he specializes in the valuation of unique tracts of real estate throughout west-central and northern Wisconsin.  This passion translates to his personal life as you will often find him out exploring on foot, on a bike or in a boat.  His prior experience as an institutional grade banker allows him to bring a unique perspective to other asset classes such as hospitality tourism (hotels, resorts, bar/restaurants, campgrounds, golf courses), multi-tenant commercial property, single-tenant net-leased retail, industrial timberland, car-washes, laundromats, conservation easements, condemnation/eminent domain cases and subsidized apartment complexes.   


Jon is a lecturer in the Real Estate Property Management program at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, an Associate Instructor for the Appraisal Institute, has served as board of director and on several committees for the North Star Chapter of the Appraisal Institute, a Rotarian, regular volunteer at Red Cedar Church and usually found coaching one of his kids teams.  Contact Jon for a free initial consultation.

What is USPAP?
USPAP stands for the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. These standards are considered to be the governing law and guidance book for appraisers. The standards are published and maintained by the Appraisal Standards Board (ASB) of the Appraisal Foundation. Every licensed appraiser is required to know and follow the statements, standards and adhere to advisory opinions of USPAP. The primary purpose of USPAP is 'to promote and maintain a high level of public trust as well as confidence in professional appraisal practice'.
