    5.0 Will M. Portsmouth, VA

    I got the appraisal done through my trust company. There are a few added steps to get the work paid for. Betsy had no problems dealing with those added steps. I would recommend her because she was patient and persistent and got the job done.

    Mrs. Hughes was amazing. Very professional and understanding of my situation. The turn around time was exactly as quoted even with the holiday weekend. I could not be happier with my experience.

    1.0 Mi C. Hampton, VA

    DO NOT USE BETSY HUGHES from this business. She does not know how to compare apples to apples. She compares her apples to watermelons. She will compare your home to homes of higher quality jacking up the value; unless this is something that you want. She compared a 1960 s all original equipment house (extremely dated, knotty pine cabinets & all) to a comparable year house that had been fully remodeled, renovated & upgraded (new everything inside & some outside improvements). She is incompetent to the nth-degree.

    3.0 Svetlana R. Newport News, VA

    Had a good first impression. But ended up with a disappointment. It did not meet my expectations.

    5.0 Lisa P. Hampton, VA

    5.0 Roger S. Chesapeake, VA

    I needed an appraisal of a home to establish the value on the date that it was inherited and was on a very tight timeframe. I found this company on HomeAdvisor and the owner responded very quickly. The price was very reasonable and she was able to visit the house before we went to settlement and sent the appraisal report later that week. I am extremely satisfied!

    We hired BK for a home appraisal. They were prompt and had the paperwork to us quickly. Thier appraisal was identical to what the mortage company's appraiser did a month later.

    5.0 Ash M. Virginia Beach, VA

    Excellent, timely, reasonably priced, professional.

    5.0 Abigail D. Newport News, VA

    Professional, curteous, responsive, and fast.

    Seal of Approval

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
