My Story

Austin Fernald - RealvalsI’m not like most of the real estate appraisers out there who are getting ready to retire. After 10 years as an appraiser, I’m just getting started. You could say that I bring a much-needed new and fresh perspective to the industry.

I’ve always had an affinity for real estate. Growing up with parents that flipped houses, and a dad that has been in the appraisal industry for most of his career had a positive effect on me.

I enjoy driving around random neighborhoods looking for interesting houses, only to come home and look them up online so I can learn everything about them. I’m also the first to dive deep into any newsworthy real estate stories.

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.
