“I went to the assessment appeals hearing and gave them my presentation following the instructions in the Little Black Book, I seemed to be the best prepared one of all of them, including the one from the County itself.
My presentation had color pictures of the Comps and along with it I presented the analysis just like in your book for appraisals. The county gave a recommendation for my property value at $735,000 and I presented the value at $525,000. I received the Assessment Appeal Board’s decision of fair market value is $600,000!
Overall it was a good outcome, since I thought that there was no use to appeal because most persons do not know how, or think is almost impossible to go against a government agency on their own.I have been able to save more than $1,500. Additionally, the experience was educational and worth it and using your books was an excellent guide not to mention the support you provide, which very few persons do when they sell their service products.”

“We went to Hawaii with the money we saved by implementing the Little Black Book! We purchased our home at the height of the market, and so our property value has dropped severely. Using the principals outlined in the Little Black Book, we have been able to substantially reduce our tax base from what it was when we purchased our home a few years ago. Her methods save us $700 per year!”
