Real Estate Business Valuation Machinery & Equipment Credentials Careers


TEDESCO is Santa Barbara County’s only multi-discipline appraisal firm. We are the area’s only truly independent appraisal firm as we do not hold memberships in any data cooperative or trade organizations where members regularly share market data with other members.  Not only do we never list current and past clients in marketing material, but also, we never publish proprietary and trade information obtained in the performance of an appraisal in the reports prepared for other clients by our firm and therefore, your trade secrets and business practices will not be passed along to your competitors as market data published in appraisal reports. 

Our areas of specialization and expertise include: Business Valuation, Real Property Appraisal, Machinery & Equipment Appraisal, Cost Segregation Studies, Vineyard & Ranch Appraisals, High-Profile Trophy Properties, Subdivision/Development Propositions, Conservation Easements, Economic Damages, Internet Domains, Charitable Contributions, Estate & Gift Filings, Employee Stock Ownership Plans, Buy/Sell Agreements, Financial Reporting, Property Tax Audits & Appeals, Casualty Losses and Eminent Domain.

TEDESCO makes every effort to devote the highest degree of personal attention to every assignment and keep our client informed of our progress from start to finish.  All of our work is performed in compliance with Business Valuation Standards issued by the A.I.C.P.A. and/or in compliance with U.S.P.A.P issued by the Appraisal Foundation.
