What are your qualifications?
I am an Oregon Certified Appraiser. I’ve been in the appraisal business since 1991, and an appraiser since 1997. I can appraise any residentially zoned house, or 2-4 unit property in the state of Oregon. I am also active/registered in the mortgage lending business and can assist with some lending questions as well.
What area do you serve?
I specialize in the Portland Metro area including outlying suburbs.
What kind of turn-around time can I expect?
I can usually get an appraisal completed within one week or less if agreed to specific terms that are shorter.
How much does it cost?
Appraisal fees vary depending on location, property type, size, use, and the requirements of the user. Please call 503 349-3765 for quick pricing.
What data sources to you draw from to determine a value?
RMLS, County Records, RealQuest, Marshall-Swift Cost Handbook, and Rental Data Bureau, builders, and realtors.
What does the appraiser look for?
We look at the house as a whole, and we look at individual features. We measure, we take photos, and we compare.

Nathan answered his phone quickly, listened and offered to help with a vacant lot's value. He was very helpful in a time when I needed a value to assist a Buyer. I will keep his # handy for the future.

Wasn’t able to directly assist me with my issue but promptly gave me referrals to those who could. I never leave comments but figured their assistance warranted it

A few weeks ago, an elderly friend of mine living in the Portland area asked me for my help. She was getting ready to sell her house and needed an appraiser. I had called a few with no response, left a few messages and then called Bernhardt Appraisal. They answered right away. I explained the situation with Helga and her timeframe. He was extremely professional and thorough explaining the process and walked me through everything. We scheduled the appraisal. Nathan came out and completed the report in a timely manner. It was a pleasure to have someone that was professional, knowledgeable and a really nice guy to too! I would highly recommend Bernhardt appraisal to anyone seeking the services of a truly professional appraiser.Stephanie Lopez

I called with a question on a small matter, and the person I talked to was super friendly and helpful. In the end the person I talked to explained that I didn't really need their services; I really appreciated the honesty and helpful info.

Bernhardt Appraisal deserves the highest recommendation. When I first called Nathan about an appraisal, he was extremely professional and flexible to what I needed, and I soon learned upon meeting him, that he was also very detail oriented and timely in his reports and drawings. Overall, Nathan's appraisal experience and knowledge about the housing market was extremely impressive, and that is what gives him the advantage over his competitors. Great rates too!
