E. Jane Brady provides honest and ethical appraisals for Frederick County

For honest and ethical appraisals, rely on Brady Appraisal Services

In our case, appraising has been a long term career. Requirements to become a certifies or licensed appraiser have increased over the years and recently more than ever.  So it goes without question these days that real estate appraising can certainly be called a profession as opposed to a trade. As with any profession we must follow strict ethical standards

Brady Appraisal Services has worked hard for its track record for providing appraisals with the highest of ethics. Contact us at 301-845-9876 to learn more.


We have quite a few obligations as appraisers, but our primary duty is to our clients.  What makes Brady Appraisal Services unique is that typically you, your family, your heirs, your estate or your business are our clients.

We talk to you or your representatives to understand the circumstances involved and we then develop the valuation using the appropriate appraisal methods. 

We require the highest ethical standards possible from ourselves. Accepting orders based on contingency fees is not something we can consider. That is, we are not able to agree to do an appraisal report and base our pay upon coming up with a particular value conclusion. There's a definite conflict of interest if an appraiser can report an unsubstantiated value and then get paid more money! This isn't how we operate.

Finally, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice clearly defines a violation in ethics as the acceptance of an assignment that is contingent on "the reporting of a pre-determined result (e.g., opinion of value)", "a direction in assignment results that favors the cause of the client", or "the amount of a value opinion" in addition to other situations We diligently follow these rules to the letter which means you can be assured we are going above and beyond to provide an unbiased determination of your home or property value.

As soon as you engage Brady Appraisal Services, we'll make sure you're getting the professional service you deserve along with the high ethical standards we're known for.
