Appraising, Cleveland Area

Famous People From the Cleveland Area

Sharing is caring!

For my last blog of the year, I thought I would take a break from talking about appraising. There are a lot of famous people from the Cleveland and Northeast Ohio area that you might not realize.  Yes, Cleveland rocks! I thought this would be fun way to end the year. Since this is an appraisal blog, I added some charts that I put together, to give you an idea of what’s going on in these areas in terms the market. The charts are reflective of single family sales. I hope you enjoy this!

    1. Thanks Joe! We still love LaBron! He still lives in the area and does a lot to help kids in Akron and surrounding areas. He’s a cool guy. I will be taking some time off starting tomorrow.😃 Enjoy your down time with family and friends!

  1. This is great. I had no idea. I recognized your “Cleveland Rocks” line of course. I hope you get some time off with the family this next week. Have a great one Jamie.
