We love our work at Appraisal Group West Michigan. We think you will, too.
Real estate and commercial investing can be an intimidating world. So can appraising everything from single-family homes to golf courses and family estates. That's why we formed AGWM -- to provide high quality appraisals for any kind of property, and as a resource for appraisers looking for a welcoming community of property professionals. We also love to travel, and enjoy assisting legal professionals with their property valuation requirements.

After owning a music store in a small Michigan town with his wife, John pivoted into working as a contracted assessor in southwest Michigan in the mid-1980s. Moving to Holland, the transition into real estate appraising was a very natural one for John. He became licensed and worked with Appraisal Associates, INC. starting in 1992. John enjoys sailing and long distance cycling. He even rides across the state of Michigan every year for his birthday. Wide Variety of experience.

Devin grew up in Holland, Michigan, and is happy to be back after 10 years living in the American West. Devin studied film and photography in Salt Lake City, but found himself taking a job on a ranch. He attended Michigan State University for Beef Cattle Management and worked with cattle in Nebraska, New Mexico, and Colorado. Devin is an accomplished woodworker in his spare time, using almost exclusively 18th century tools and techniques.
Tom's journey as an appraiser began in 2003 with Appraisal Associates Inc. after prior careers in land surveying, new home construction, and real estate sales. With John's help, Tom fast tracked through the appraising licensure levels, and by 2006 acquired the top level of Certified General Appraiser. Tom's favorite pastimes are spending time with family, gardening, and sailing.
