My Story

Austin - REALVALSI’m not like most of the real estate appraisers out there with an average age of 60; I’m closer to half of that. I guess you could also say that I bring a much needed new and fresh perspective to the industry.

My name is Austin Fernald, and I’m the man in charge here at REALVALS.

I’ve always had an affinity for real estate. Growing up with parents that were always buying houses, updating, and reselling them to move on to a new house and do it all over again, undoubtedly had a positive effect on me.

See, I’m that guy who drives around random neighborhoods looking for interesting houses (Is that even a thing?), only to come home and find them on MLS so I can learn all about them.

So why am I not a broker then?

Well, that’s because selling real estate has never really interested me and having time to spend with family outside of work is something I value more than money (Ha ha). Plus, I love the numbers and the hundreds of more properties I get to see in a given year.
