I have been a broker with Douglas Elliman since 1993. I have met my share of appraisers --in fact I was trained by an appraiser who helped me join DE.Scott arrived early and understood that the buyers needed an appraisal ASAP since the buyers had just won a bidding war with 2 cash buyers. I remember his requesting an early appointment and later found out he had a company holiday luncheon to attend----made an impression on me because, most people in the industry would schedule for another day before requesting an early appointment !

Hey, just wanted to share my experience with Block Appraisals. So, I recently had them check out an estate I'm dealing with – never done that before. The whole process was surprisingly easy and fast.Scott, the guy handling it, seemed to really know their stuff and was very professional. He knew the local real estate scene inside out and took the time to walk me through the whole appraisal process. I was surprised how smoothly the entire process went.When I got the final report, it blew me away. Super well-organized and easy to understand. The attention to detail was spot on, just like during the inspection.Long story short, if you need a real estate appraisal, Block Appraisals is the way to go. I'll definitely hit them up again if I need another appraisal down the line.

I just had an appraisal of my property completed by Block Appraisals. In conclusion, I highly recommend the company as the level of professionalism, quality of work, and efficiency of service completely surprised me. Furthermore, the pricing of the service is a good value, in my opinion.I needed an appraisal of my property completely ASAP as part of a net asset valuation process. I contacted the company directly via its website and to my surprise, I got a reply to my initial query within an hour.Scott Block was my contact point and he was extremely efficient in all communications and would be communicating with me well beyond working hours into the evenings.My first contact was a couple of days before the start of the long Thanksgiving holiday so I was concerned that would prolong the process. However, Scott accommodated my request to visit the property within a day and to my complete surprise, had the appraisal completed and sent to me on the Monday morning after the holiday. It was completed in only 2 working days.Block Appraisals is a company that you can trust and feel comfortable working with. It’s hard to find a company these days that is willing to accommodate client needs on such short notice, and during such a busy holiday period, all the while with a very professional demeanor.

"I recently used Block Appraisals for information regarding an estate sale of a residential property. Scott, the appraiser, was incredibly patient and answered all my questions before I hired him. The appraisal report was thorough, easy to understand, and arrived within the timeframe he quoted as promised. Scott even took extra time to answer my questions by phone after receiving the report. Overall, Block Appraisals provided excellent customer service, a professional and accurate appraisal, all at a fair price. I highly recommend them!"

As a tenant, I was presented with an offer by my landlord to purchase the property I currently rent. He proposed a purchase price and encouraged me to consider the offer. Not having much knowledge of the real estate market, I sought the expertise of a professional appraiser and came across Block Appraisals through Google. I am grateful to Scott from Block Appraisals, whose thorough appraisal empowered me to confidently present a counteroffer to my landlord. Scott's detailed assessment was a key factor in our negotiations, ultimately contributing to a more favorable purchase price. I extend my sincerest thanks to Scott for his invaluable assistance and professionalism. For anyone in need of expert appraisal services, I wholeheartedly recommend Block Appraisals.

My parents have never been the best at planning, and I recently convinced them to consult an attorney for some estate planning. Part of this planning involved valuing their assets, and our attorney recommended Scott for an appraisal of their house. Scott was very responsive and managed to address our needs promptly. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an appraisal. I will definitely use his services again should I require any appraisals in the future. Thank you, Scott, for making this process easy!

I recently had an appraisal done by Scott for a potential investment property I was interested in purchasing. Scott’s insight helped me make an informed decision and uncovered some potential considerations of the property I had not realized. I ultimately did not proceed with purchasing the property; however, Scott’s appraisal was invaluable and helped me avoid a bad decision. I highly recommend Block Appraisals to anyone looking for a reliable real estate appraisal service in NYC.
