Hello, I am Greg Pirie owner of and the appraiser for Big Buck Appraisals. A little about myself: I grew up in Forest Grove, OR (a small town between Portland and the coast). This is where I met my wife who was attending Pacific University pursuing her career as an Optometric physician. After her graduation she convinced me to move back to her hometown of Spokane, WA. This was probably one of the best decisions we have made as I have fallen in love with this area. It is a great place to raise a family and is full of outdoor recreational activities.
Since moving here I have obtained an AA degree from SCC and in 2005 I began my real estate appraisal career. I began as a real estate appraiser trainee under the supervision of a local real estate appraisal company gathering the experience required by the AQB and the states of Washington and Idaho to become a Certified Real Estate Appraiser. I have also worked through all of the new and vigorous requirements set forth by the AQB in an effort to raise the quality of appraisals and re-establish the public's trust in the profession. The new requirements have included requiring a minimum of a two year college degree, drastically increasing the number of core class hours required to take the certification exam, and the exam itself went from a fairly broad 2 hour exam to a detailed 6 hour test. I have succeeded in fulfilling all the new requirements and passing the new exam early in 2008. Shortly after receiving my Washington Real Estate Appraisal Certification I acquired my Idaho Real Estate Appraisal Certification to enhance my services and broaden my coverage area for my clients. I have also recently been approved and placed on the FHA roster for both Idaho and Washington. As anyone in the real estate world knows FHA loans have become a big part of our ever changing industry.
Big Buck Appraisals goal is to provide the highest quality appraisals possible while catering to each clients specific needs and time lines. I pride myself in heads up communication and low turn times. Coming from a smaller town myself I prefer the "small town" business relationships based on trust, honesty, and good communication. Times are changing and the trend seems to be taking away the appraiser/client relationship. I am always willing to discuss any issues with clients and to learn how I can better myself in order to meet the needs of my clients. If you have any questions I may be able to help you with please feel free to send me an email at Greg@bigbuckappraisal.com or give me a call at (509)456-4588.
I am a Certified and FHA approved Appraiser in Washington and Idaho. I have experience in single family, 2-4 family, income producing properties, manufactured homes, condos, and FHA appraisals. I do business in southern Stevens county, Spokane county, northern Whitman county, and Kootenai county.
