Regarding Previous Client Lists: We feel strongly that Client Privacy is far more important than dropping names. We have worked with some of the largest corporations in the world – and we have appraised many tiny businesses as well (along with everything in between). Of the 230 appraisals last year we directly worked for over 40 banking institutions, 20 large law firms, several Fortune 50, several Fortune 500, and MANY privately held businesses nationally and internationally.

In a service industry, whereby goods are not supplied as a component to your business, Certified Consulting Group’s solvency is not an issue. The issue for financial display is the growth and expansion the company has realized to prove performance. The volume of assets valued for our clients over the past few years is in excess of  $1.2 Billion Dollars and is growing at about $200 million per year. Our Company averages 200+ individual Appraisals per year.
