"Wanted to pass along a “well done” to Kurt Smook. I thought he did a really good job answering the questions I had about the self-storage facility. It makes my job a lot easier when appraisers provide thorough explanations to review questions. It’s nice to be able to have these responses on file, as I’m able to pass them along the loan officers. In addition, I’m able to include the responses in my review, which adds validity and support to the review. Even though the loan officers might disagree on certain issues, I can tell you that they appreciate it when appraisers take the time to provide well-thought-out responses.
Please feel free to put Kurt on any assignments for Umpqua in the future." - Matt Dodd, VP & RE Valuation Services Appraiser - Umpqua Bank
