How Christopher Shaw Real Estate Appraisal Service Works:
An onsite inspection of the entire property is KEY to the appeal process as the Tax Assessor cannot personally inspect each property in the county therefore it relies on analyzing sale data through public records. The Tax Assessor can’t understand your property’s condition, updates or other issues outside of your property lines that may affect your property’s market value.
Expert Assessment:
Our team of experienced appraisers will conduct a thorough analysis of your property, taking into account various factors such as an accurate square footage calculation, location, and condition that will influence its value.
Receive Your Accurate Appraisal:
Within a short timeframe, you’ll receive a detailed appraisal report, outlining the true market value of your property. It will be emailed to you. We suggest thoroughly reading the report and submitting any questions before submission to the Wake County Tax Assessor’s office for consideration.
Save on Property Taxes:
Armed with your accurate real estate appraisal, you can now enjoy the benefits of fair taxation and potential savings on your property taxes.
Make the smart choice today and choose Christopher Shaw Real Estate Appraisal Service for precision real estate appraisals. Experience the financial freedom that comes with accurate property assessments.

More than 30 years of local experience

In today’s highly competitive real estate market, successful brokerage services need to be knowledgeable about the local market, have a strong online presence, and provide excellent customer service to clients. Real estate brokers should also have a deep understanding of the legal and financial aspects of buying and selling properties, as well as the ability to negotiate effectively on behalf of their clients.

In order to stand out from the competition, real estate brokers may also offer additional services to their clients, such as staging, professional photography and videography, and virtual tours. They may also provide guidance on how to improve a property’s value through renovations or upgrades.

In addition, effective communication is essential for real estate brokers. Clients want to feel informed and confident throughout the buying or selling process, and brokers should be available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise. At Christopher Shaw Real Estate Services we provide all the tools and experience to help you succeed in your real estate endeavors.

Ultimately, the success of a real estate brokerage service is measured by the satisfaction of its clients. If clients feel that their broker provided excellent service and helped them achieve their real estate goals, they are more likely to refer the broker to others and use their services again in the future.

Chris was wonderful! Extremely professional and flexible. Report was timely and very detailed. I will be using his service in the future.

I contacted Christopher at the end of the day last Wednesday. I was really in a spot because the closing attorney’s office had dropped the ball several times in the past two months regarding our closing. Our closing had already been pushed three or four times. I was desperate! Christopher said he could work me in for an appraisal right away. He said the weather was supposed to be bad the following day but said he should be able to help me the next day. He was there just as promised. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He delivered the appraisal within two days. Fortunately, this meant I didn’t have to push the closing yet again. Christopher is a true real estate professional! I would highly recommend Christopher to anyone that is looking to get a professional and timely appraisal!
