Acuara Appraisal

Acuara Appraisal is a real estate appraisal and consulting firm located in Claremont, California. Exclusively engaged in the appraisal of residential real property, owner Steven Davis, ASA, has 13 years of appraisal experience and is a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser.

Acuara Appraisal is a rare appraisal firm that is not totally focused on lender clients, rather the business emphasis is on addressing the needs of the legal community and their clients for such purposes as estate planning, gifting, estate tax, divorce, dispute resolution or litigation.

Mr. Davis has provided expert witness testimony on multiple occasions. Besides testifying in court, litigation support providing review of other expert’s work is essential to help clients understand appraisal strengths and weaknesses, as well as compliance with professional standards and ethics in preparation of cross examination.

Detailed appraisal reports are written in a format appropriate for the user’s needs, not on a form designed for lending purposes. Over the past 14 years, Mr. Davis has specialized in appraising all types of residential property in the Foothill Cities, while developing expertise in appraising high value homes.

Quality of education, proven experience, and a commitment to uphold the highest ethics and standards in the appraisal industry is the foundation of Mr. Davis’s credentials.
