Formerly known as Gulf Appraisers / Hettema, Saba & Walch, LLC, we have been in business providing real property valuation and consulting in Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte Counties, as well as other areas statewide for 35 years. Our commitment to doing thorough and consistent work has resulted in a continued strong client base that includes members of the local and regional lending community, attorneys, and governmental agencies. Our expertise is in commercial and specialized appraisals, including litigation and right-of-way appraisal work. Roger L. Hettema, Ronald M. Saba, and Ilya N. Gaev hold the MAI designation with the Appraisal Institute and are State-Certified General Appraisers.
In addition to the three MAI designated partners, we employ two research and administrative assistants and have two independent contracted associate appraisers. We employ two research and administrative assistants, maintain a computerized database of our own and a partner supervises all work. This organization structure allows us to maintain our normal client load while focusing on large or special projects that may involve more detail and attention.
