My Story

Austin Fernald - 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 owner and principal appraiser here.

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.

I’m a guy who enjoys driving around random neighborhoods looking for interesting houses, only to come home and look them up on MLS so I can learn everything about them.

But, enough about me.

If you ever need an appraisal in the Bay Area, you can call/text me at 415-233-6925, or email me directly at austin@realvals.com.
