Friends of the Ecusta Trail, Board Member

John and the team were great to work with in appraising the Ecusta Trail corridor.  His experience was invaluable!  When the rail road and DOT had questions or needed clarification, John was super responsive.  He also made suggestions for documentation that will make the appraisal very useful for future grant applications.

I have worked with John Palmer for over ten years. He is a great resource as an appraiser. He is diligent and timely and provides all the services and more than you expect in an appraiser. Based on my experience and his accreditation I recommend him to anyone.

While I have known John Palmer for close to forty years, I have been engaging him as an expert witness for appraisal testimony over the past five years. Without a doubt, John’s preparation and presentation are the best I have ever seen. John is able to deliver his testimony in a very careful and thoughtful manner, and further able to hold up under very tough cross-examination.

 I have found The Palmer Company to be responsive, timely, and thorough. I appreciate their customer service.


I highly recommend John Palmer and his team at the Palmer Company. I’ve worked with John on numerous estate and trust administration matters where his attention to detail and ability to work through complicated valuation issues have proven to be invaluable. John’s work has provided peace of mind to my clients, allowed for the expeditious administration of estate and trust matters, and likely resulted in significant tax savings for several of my clients.
