WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Oct. 11, 2022–AEI Consultants (AEI), a leading provider of building, environmental, land, and sustainability assessment and consulting services throughout North America, announced today that it has launched AEI Valuation, the newest addition to its due diligence services. AEI Valuation will provide unbiased commercial real estate appraisal reports to meet the requirements for lending, sales, investor reporting, or commercial real estate disputes for its clients.

AEI Valuation will be led by Richard West, MAI, an experienced executive who ran the Americas valuation group for the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm. He brings deep experience in property technology, garnered from his time running the lending and valuation platform for a technology provider that caters to the commercial real estate industry.

“Richard West is a natural fit for AEI,” said Holly Neber, AEI’s CEO. “He is not only an accomplished executive but also a humble, results-oriented leader who aligns with our shared values and our passion for being a great place to work and providing excellence to each of our clients.

“The addition of valuation services is the final phase in establishing AEI as an industry-leading, single point of contact for all real estate assessment services,” said Paul Hinkston, AEI’s COO. “Our success in these endeavors has always been predicated on having the right leader to ensure we are providing our clients with the best product and service possible, and we are very excited to be adding someone of Richard’s caliber and experience to be that leader.”

“I joined AEI because of its reputation as an industry leader and provider of high-quality due diligence reports. The opportunity to build a new service line based on modern technology from scratch—within a trusted company—is a perfect fit for me. Our goal for AEI Valuation is simple: on time, high quality, no surprises,” said West.

AEI’s commercial real estate valuation services provide the efficiency of a single outsourced third party without a conflict of interest. Available as a standalone deliverable or served concurrently with all of AEI’s services, including environmental, property condition reports, ALTA surveys, zoning reports, energy audits, and ESG reports, AEI Valuation will offer greater convenience to its clients by adding commercial valuation services to its quiver of services. Through collaborative project management, AEI’s client-focused teams will ensure the full suite of services contains consistent salient data and is customized to the unique needs of each of its clients. AEI Valuation services will initially be offered in the West Coast markets, with Central and Eastern areas to follow in the near term.
