Darin Smith, Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser and owner of Darinzona Appraisal Services LLC

I got started in the appraisal business in 2003 after spending ten years in the graphic design and adversting industry right out of college with a degree in art and design.

My first year of required pre-licensing apprenticeship appraising was spent mostly appraising HUD owned properties. I valued the vacant HUD properties in their as-is condition and provided a laundry list of health and safety related repairs needed to the properties to bring them up to code and make them saleable and marketable for HUD.

I received my first appraisal license in 2004 and certified appraisal license in 2005 after completing a second year of required apprenticeship and additional classwork followed by passing the state exam.

I started my own business Darinzona Appraisal Services in 2008 and work for myself. I have no additional appraisers on staff. When using Darinzona Appraisal Services LLC I will be working directly for you from start to finish.
