Master Appraiser Patrick M. Smith
Mr. Patrick M. Smith SR, ISA AM, MSA, MPPA, CAGA founded his appraisal firm in late 2004. In 2009, realizing there was a vastly underserved market for appraisers with the experience and credentials to appraise used building materials from deconstructed homes, Mr. Smith transitioned his company from a residential and commercial real estate appraisal firm to one solely focused upon non-cash charitable donations of used building materials from deconstructed homes. Highly credentialed and with his varied real estate appraisal background/education, Mr. Smith was easily able to grow his new firm, Green Donation Consultants (GDC) into one of the Premier non-cash charitable donation consulting firms in the nation today.
GDC with eight (8) credentialed, certified personal property appraisers now operates in 14 states. GDC is working diligently to expand that footprint to help more of our fellow Americans realize the economic, environmental and philanthropic benefits of deconstruction.
