Specializing in the valuation of fixed assets, I am an Accredited Senior Appraiser with the American Society of Appraisers and serve on the MTS discipline Committee. 

I started RK Valuation Advisory to offer valuation services to the mid-Atlantic region and beyond. After stints with a major international valuation firm and a family owned Australian appraisal company, I have teamed up with a global network of independent appraisers that offer big-4 experience without the price tag. To learn more about valuation services we provide, please visit our website or email me at:

My experience includes valuations for: purchase price allocations, tax, financing, dispute and litigation, M&A advisory, restructuring, insurance, and impairments. I have performed valuations across 35 countries and 45 US states in a wide variety of industries.
