I own construction company and I was told to ask John to help me with one of the vehicles was in accident ( front and back damage). John quickly respond to my questions and explained process. Appraisal was down in day and I send it out to insurance for diminish value refund. Case was settled quickly after offers were exchanged. I hope not to need His services any more - but if I will need appraisal I will call him asap and use his knowledge again.
