Commercial Grade is a post by John Cicero, MAI who provides commentary on issues affecting real estate appraisers, with specific focus on commercial valuation. John is a partner of mine in our commercial real estate valuation concern Miller Cicero, LLC  and he is, depending on what day of the week it is, one of the smartest guys I know.
Six years ago today Miller Cicero, LLC  was born!
From the minute that I put out my shingle, it’s been a great ride. The synergy created between me and the Millers  has been dynamic and from day one…my biggest problem has been getting all of our work done in time. (We always did, but it often took a lot of midnight-oil burning!!).
I’m fortunate to say I’ve got one of the best appraisal staffs in the profession and a terrific roster of clients as well. Though the market is clearly changing I am confident that we will be able to ride the roller coaster to come (I’ve got toI start paying my first college tuition bills for my daughter this fall!)
Sorry for getting sappy, but once a year on my anniversary I’m entitled to get a little maudlin, aren’t I?
