Nelson Boswell, Jr., SRA, President and CEO has over thirty years experience in the field real estate appraisal, as well as being an experienced State Certified Class A General Contractor, and homebuilder in the state of Florida. He has experience in matters of construction that are rarely found in the appraisal industry.  He can offer unique perspectives on appraisal assignments and problems where most appraisers cannot as well as offering unique perspectives on cost estimates, where many estimators and contractors cannot. 

Whether by way of a written report or verbal testimony, Mr. Boswell provides articulate expert explanation and experience in Cost Estimating, and Real Estate Appraisal. 

Mr. Boswell is available to consult and advise on the validity of an appraisal or cost estimate presented by defense or plaintiffs counsel.

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. 

Pertinent to the current climate, retrospective valuations in the distant past are becoming much more prevalent.  It takes a very experienced expert to handle these one of a kind assignments.  Each are very unique and made complex in their own right due to the amount of time that has passed, regardless of the complexity of the property type.  In many cases, our independent, detailed, supportable and exhaustive analysis has allowed clients to settle cases without going to court.

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.  

Post Dodd-Frank, USPAP now has teeth.  It often becomes the central issue when appraisal touches anything, even before the issues of value or loss in value are explored.  Both of these time periods have remarkable similarities, especially concerning bad loans on real estate, appraisals for lenders, and ensuing economic collapse. 

Mr. Boswell has done presentations and seminars for attorneys in matters concerning Appraisal Law, Appraisal Independence, USPAP, Review and Recourse for attorneys and their clients.
