Since 1983, I have worked for several appraisal companies doing an assortment of appraisal assignments. In 1988, while doing mostly residential work I ventured into commercial appraisal assignments working for various appraisers.  In 1990, I established John Carlson and Associates, which is a full service appraisal and consultation company in Lafayette, California.  I service most counties in the Bay Area doing residential and commercial.  I am a licensed Certified General Appraiser AG005107 and Senior Member of the American Society of Appraisers.
