David Hunnicutt, MAI, SGA, CRE, JD,
With over 44 years of consulting, valuation and appraisal experience working with financial institutions, developers, golf course owners and operators as well as state, local and federal agencies, I have gained extensive background in appraisal of existing and proposed projects with an emphasis on golf properties, ADR, eminent domain and litigation support. I was elected to membership in the Appraisal Institute and hold both the MAI and AI-GRS designations. I am also a member of the Society of Golf Appraisers (SGA) and Counselors of Real Estate (CRE). Both groups hold membership by invitation-only and are dedicated to recognition of professionals who are outstanding in their specific area of expertise. I am a 2004 graduate of Seattle University School of Law and have been a member of the Washington State Bar Association since shortly after graduation.
In providing continuing education to the profession, I have created, developed and instructed seminars on Easement Valuation, Appraisal of Golf Properties, Law and the Appraiser, and Regulatory Takings. I am an approved instructor for a variety of courses and seminars through the Appraisal Institute, and I have authored articles on Mortgage Fraud Litigation, Rules of Mediation/Arbitration in Washington, Rules of Evidence for Expert Witnesses, Daubert and the Appraiser and others.
I assist clients from a wide range of public and private industries to navigate and understand the appraisal process – both from a legal and financial standpoint. Understanding the law associated with large scale valuations is an important part of the work which I bring to my clients. This can be a daunting process but our expertise can make the process become simplified and seamless for you.
Please contact me at Hunnicutt and Associates when the need arises, and together we can solve your valuation problem. In the meantime, send us your name and email address below if you wish to receive our periodic newsletter.
What Our Clients Say
We really appreciated the class that you taught (Eastern Washington Chapter of assessing officers).
Deputy Chief Assessor
We have reached a settlement and that was in huge part due to your involvement in this matter. I feel blessed to have someone like you to call upon to assist me with my client’s issue.
Max L. Attorney at Law
I don’t think we ever got back to you to say “thank you” for making the final edits to our appraisal. We appreciate your thoroughness (and patience!).
Kathy and Steve
We’re grateful to have a working relationship with you and appreciate the care you take and show to each client we’ve had the privilege of calling ‘mutual’. Again, thanks for your thoughtfulness and generosity.
I attended David's seminar. While scores are respectable, they don’t convey an accurate report in this case. David’s preparation was phenomenal. He wrote a 150-page book for his handout. I am reading it now and it is well written. He is a subject matter black belt. In my entire appraisal career, I have never witnessed an instructor with such a strong command of material. Obscure questions were answered succinctly and with total confidence, David is passionate about real estate law. There is a genuineness and energy in his voice that cannot be faked. The material would be valuable to all appraisers, residential and commercial, even if they avoid legal work. Anyone who owns a house should take it. I have been an appraiser for a long time and I was shocked at what I didn’t know. This seminar is worth offering again in the future.
Educational Conference Chair
Thank you again for the time and energy you spent speaking with us about our situation and the throrough research you did to determine whether or not there was credible evidence to assess our property at a higher value. It sounds like our settlement amount was fair for the declared damages that were agreed to be paid. We appreciate your thoughtful and honest response.
