  • Prepare and file protests as well as other documentation according to local authorities
  • Create appraisal presentations to be presented to the assessing authorities 
  • Informally meet with the appraisers to negotiate an acceptable value   
  • Protest the case formally to the Appraisal Review Board (ARB)
  • If fair values cannot be acheived, we facilitate the litigation process if lawsuits need to be filed
  • Provide our customers detailed reports as well as 24/7 online access to the status of their protest
