"I wanted to circle back around and let you know the outcome of my grievance. I had informal meeting with the assessor and they granted my grievance. They didn’t come down to $327,506.00 but she came down to $340,000.00. (a $100,000 reduction! ) Thank you so much for your amazing website and your expertise. I truly appreciate it!"

By working through your steps I was able to lower the total assessed value of my home by over $57,000 and my total market value by almost $85,000, all through an informal meeting with my assessor. Please keep up the good work! Thanks again!"
"The final assessment was brought down to $152,000. It had started at $174,200 and we had asked it to be brought down to $148,000 so we are very satisfied. Mr. Golisano's website was most helpful to us."
"I was able to get a favorable outcome, due to all of your help I am sincerely grateful for that."
"I just went in to the assessor with lots of comps figured out by type of home and square footage cost. I not only wiped out the increase on my home $110,000.00, but got $50,000.00 more off my past assessment!!! It really does pay to be prepared! Thanks for your help. I'll let you know what happens to the rest of our street!!!!"
"Thank you for your website. I followed the directions and got my assessment to stay at the level it was. You really helped me fill out the forms. I submitted pictures and descriptions from zillow and my camera of the 3 comps my town furnished and photos of my own house. I compared my house to the 3 comps. On grievance day, after seeing the photos, they didn't even argue. The assessor accepted my submission. They had raised my assessment $7900. Now it is staying the same."
