I have known Blake prior to his high school days, yes I am now that old, and have watched him mature into a man of the highest integrity. As a trainee he strove to learn quickly and comprehensively, and worked long hours with minimal return. He is a quick study who desires to produce the highest quality report possible. He is detail orientated with a strong grasp of the big picture. It was an easy decision for me to leave my business in his hands, and I consider it an honor that he continually seeks my input and appreciates my opinion. One lesson that he learned well is that an appraiser is only as good as their most recent report.

Blake Ponek did a great job on our commercial property. Blake found good comparables and did a rigorous analysis. Blake delivered the appraisal on time during a time of high volume real estate transactions. Blake has superior knowledge of San Luis Obispo County. I wholeheartedly recommend Blake to anyone seeking a reliable commercial appraisal.

I’ve been appraising residential properties on the Central Coast for 15 years. When I have a question on commercial properties I go to Blake for the answers.
