Donnie serves his clients in a professional manner as an objective appraiser and maintains a high level of integrity, providing a benefit to individual clients and the community as a whole.

The goal at Beacon Appraisal Group is to provide our clients with same high level of appraisal services and professionalism that our office provided as Bratton Appraisal, Redmond.

“I believe that some of the most difficult appraisal assignments are unusual residential properties and Mr. Montagner has the skill and experience required to value a variety of home types.  Review appraisers extend high marks for his research, analysis and ability to communicate clearly.  Donnie Montagner earns my highest recommendation. If you are expanding your approved appraiser list, you certainly must include this professional”.

                   – Dana Bratton
