Franklin Street, a full-service commercial real estate firm, has added an experienced commercial real estate appraiser to its growing Valuation Advisory division.
Robert Baird joins Franklin Street as a Senior Appraiser with more than 25 years of experience. He specializes in all commercial property types including: office, industrial, multifamily, single and multi-tenant retail, acreage tracts, special purpose properties, port-related properties, churches, single-family residential subdivisions, conservation easements, partial interests, equestrian properties, residential, vacant land projects and a variety of eminent domain appraisals.
Prior to joining Franklin Street, Baird worked for Dennis Noto & Associates, Inc. and previously for Trigg, Catlett & Associates in Tampa.
“Franklin Street offers us a different experience than a company that does solely appraisal work,” Baird said. “With the company’s diverse and rapidly expanding real estate platform and its culture of collaboration, we are able to interact directly with dealmakers right under our roof and gather important data and trends seen in our line of work. This is a major benefit to our clients who are looking for the most-accurate valuation data available.”
Baird is a member of several organizations including the Association of Eminent Domain Professionals, and served on the Board of Directors for the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the Appraisal Institute. He is a State-Certified General Real Estate Appraiser and a real estate salesperson in Florida.
“Robert brings a wealth of broad-based experience to our Valuation Advisory group,” said Marty Engelmann, MAI, division president. “I fully expect his leadership skills and work ethic to be tremendous resources for our clients, further providing positive influences on our junior staff members.”
Franklin Street Valuation Advisory provides real estate valuation, consulting, litigation and expert witness services for all commercial real estate property types.
