Other Relevant Information:
Knowledge of policy, scope of damages, & accurate repair estimates should determine the amount of loss rather than professional alliances. An umpire should assist in settling differences by encouraging an honest scope, a proper estimate, and request the appraisers support their differing position with facts. Licensed as an adjuster in Florida from 1997 - present, his experience, knowledge of policies, building codes, and Xactimate software combine in producing a fair and honest appraisal.
