About Us


Summit Appraisal Services was established in 2006 with the mission of providing expertise in appraisal services for financing, estate valuations and litigation support. That mission continues to be a driving force.  Summit Appraisal has always strived to thoroughly research each assignment by speaking to local real estate professionals, reviewing published research specific to each job, and synthesizing the pool of information into a coherent, well thought out report.  This enables Summit Appraisal Services to provide expert advice to investors, banks,  attorneys and municipalities.

The owner of Summit Appraisal Services is Joel Tran, a Certified General Real Estate Appraiser who has been appraising properties throughout New England for 20 years.  In the early 1990's, Mr. Tran was a per-diem appraiser at Whittier Partners and Boston Market Analysts.  From 1993 thorough 2006, Mr. Tran was employed by Coleman and Sons Appraisal Group specializing in litigation matters.  Mr. Tran has been qualified to testify in Middlesex & Barnstable Superior Courts,  Land Court, Probate Court and he has assisted at hearings of the Appellate Tax Board.  He has also participated at several mediation sessions at JAMS and attorneys offices.

Mr. Tran earned his Bachelor of Science degree at the State University of New York at Albany in 1980.  He then worked as an accountant for various real estate firms during the 1980's.  Since then, Mr. Tran has moved into the appraisal field and has taken education courses sponsored by the Appraisal Institute and Massachusetts Board of Real Estate Appraisers.  All current Massachusetts licensing, Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), and Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions (Yellow Book Certification) are current.   He is an approved appraiser for the Massachusetts Highway Department, the FAA as well as numerous municipalities.
