Theresa G. Dunleavy & Associates is second to none when it comes to technology
At Theresa G. Dunleavy & Associates, technology is the name of the game. We do our best to make appraising look easy and we believe a big part of it is our ability to increase our productivity with the newest tools. We use the latest technology around to complete your appraisal without sacrificing quality or accuracy.
The appraisal process has rapidly evolved in recent years and most would say, it's a lot more demanding than in the past. We offer the highest quality appraisals, and cutting corners has never been an option for us. Therefore, we've simply optimized our routine processes to do more in less time. Our continuous efforts to be the best have convinced us that using the very latest in new technology allows us to provide more credible reports, quicker turnaround times and of course, the very best in customer service.
Years ago, a lot of our orders arrived via fax and were confirmed with phone calls once we got back to the office. It might be hours before a client even knew if we could do the order. Things are quite a bit different now and when an order is placed on the site, we get an e-mail on our phones. We often log into this site from the field and send back an e-mail confirmation – including the time and date for the inspection if we've been able to talk to the occupant.
Let Theresa G. Dunleavy & Associates show you how we innovate ordering appraisals
Theresa G. Dunleavy & Associates understands that real estate is all about timeliness. We use our resources to reduce waiting between communications since the speed at which we get things done directly effects your bottom-line. This website definitely reduces cycle time for us and our clients by enhancing our communications.
Using Technology in the Field
Gathering the data for an appraisal is an in-depth process. We spend a lot of our time collecting both specific information about the subject property and general data about the local market and developing trends. Theresa G. Dunleavy & Associates takes advantage of technology to close the gap once again.
Instead of using paper forms and pencils and then re-keying all the information back at the office, don't be surprised to see us with a tablet PC or collecting data using an app developed for our phones that even lets us sketch a floorplan right on site. And instead of using an outdated tape measure, a larger percentage appraisers are beginning to use laser measuring devices that are quicker, more accurate, and can get into places that normal tape measures have always had problems with.
All of this technology ensures that the final report is as comprehensive and conclusive as possible. This benefits both you and us by necessitating less time for call-backs and revisions. A real money saver for busy appraisal clients.
Here at Theresa G. Dunleavy & Associates we want you to know you have more options to receive your report.
At a very minimum, you can expect us to deliver your final report electronically as a PDF. Generally our clients are most familiar with receiving PDFs attached to their e-mail. It's a lot better than the old days before e-mail. But, we've even been able to innovate how you receive your report with this website.
Ever lost a file that was sent to you? Or have you ever had an attachment blocked because of the file size? We have the technology to overcome those problems, too. When we deliver an appraisal through this website, the client gets a link sent to their email to retrieve the PDF. By bypassing email completely we can get around any problems caused by file size. And the download link is good for 90 days. So if anything happens to the file, you can log back in here and retrieve it again without even calling us or waiting for us to get to a computer so we can send it again.
Lastly, we use all digital workfiles...
It would be great if appraisers could never have to think about an assignment again after writing and giving it to the client. However, appraisals are used to demonstrate the condition of a property on the inspection date. Therefore, appraisers must keep their reports for 5 years in case any disputes or other matters arise regarding the property.
To sum it all up, Theresa G. Dunleavy & Associates uses all the technology available to us technology to improve service. By storing every aspect of the appraisal - notes, sketches, supporting documentation and calculations - along with the appraisal electronically, we skip the old-fashioned file cabinets and only need our computer to recall exactly what that assignment was about.
These are just a few examples of how we use technology daily. Utilizing the right tools, along with the appraisal know-how that you've grown to expect allows the appraiser to deliver reports quicker, more efficiently and with higher degrees of accuracy.
