Nelson Boswell, Jr., J.D., SRA, President and CEO has thirty-four years experience in the field real estate appraisal, as well as being an experienced State Certified Class General Contractor, and homebuilder in the state of Florida.

Forensic appraisal review, retrospective valuation, and cost estimate peer review - for cases involving professional liability, professional negligence, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract, appraisal fraud, appraisal negligence, and insurance claims.
Retrospective valuations involving market value issues, loss in market value issues and/or repair/remediation cost estimation in the past, especially in the distant past--and often one of a kind assignments--must be handled by an experienced expert appraiser/cost estimator. Mr. Boswell is such an expert. His real estate appraisals withstand withering peer review scrutiny and opposing counsel cross examination. Each are very unique and made complex in their own right due to the amount of time that has passed from the date of the report (which is current) and the effective date of the appraisal (which is in the past). The adversity affecting the real property, the amount of relevant data, assumptions, extraordinary assumptions and any hypothetical conditions and other factors also effect the complexity of assignment. Mr. Boswell has the requisite experience to competently take on these assignments, and persuasively explain his findings to the fact finder.
Mr. Boswell's extensive experience includes a wide variety of appraisal & appraisal review assigments, cost estimation, remediation estimation and expert testimony. He is an expert in FIRREA Title XI Appraisal Regulations created in 1989 after the S&L Crisis and the new Dodd-Frank Act, Title XIV, Subtitle F, Appraiser Independence Regulations after the residential real estate collapse beginning in 2006 (and subsequent global economic bust 2007-2009); also an expert in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). USPAP was first implemented in 1989 after the S&L Crisis by the U.S. Senate Appraisal Subcommittee's Appraisal Foundation.
