Barbara Phillips- Destin, Florida

Barbara Phillips became an appraiser 20 years ago when her excellent friend owned and operated a real estate appraisal firm. What puts Barbara apart from everyone else are as follows; for starters her talent for problem-solving, she can stay objective by setting aside any personal bias and even after 20 years she still has the desire to keep learning. For her, appraising is like putting pieces of a puzzle together by analyzing conflicting information.
