Would you hire your family doctor to perform a highly specialized surgery on your vocal chords, or you would choose to hire an Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) specialist to perform the surgery? The answer is simple… you would choose the ENT doctor every time because he or she has the necessary specialized experience, skills and tools to more accurately complete the surgery. Why wouldn’t the same be true in the world of commercial real estate valuation?
