Fleet Bank

"I have employed R.D. Geronimo Ltd. and affiliated firms for a wide variety of appraisal assignments in several states over the past several years. Their work product exhibits competency and professionalism, and is consistently delivered in a timely manner. During our routine appraisal interview process, R.D. Geronimo personnel are always cooperative. Additionally, on the rare occasion when a report contains perceived mistake, when assignment criteria changes during the course of the appraisal, or when a complex property requires additional explanation, R.D. Geronimo staff respond quickly and courteously, and always endeavor to resolve problems.
I enthusiastically endorse and recommend R.D. Geronimo Ltd. and affiliates for real estate appraisal assignments."
