The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is one of our clients.  We’re proud to secure work from such a large agency on a consistent basis.  It speaks to our quality, value and ability to execute to their standards.

 

The point we really want to drive home is that TxDOT is a “public service driven” agency, not a “profit driven” agency.  They rely on appraisal firms like ours to build and maintain public relations on their behalf.  They also rely on timely and consistent delivery of “just compensation” to keep their projects on schedule, and to ensure that Texas property owners affected by their projects have a good experience in their dealing with us, as an extension of the agency.
