The company was founded by Casey Lyon, MAI, who has thirteen plus years of experience as a commercial real estate appraiser. Casey grew up in Marietta, GA where he attended Sprayberry High School and has spent a majority of his life living in metro Atlanta with stops in Athens, GA, Memphis, TN and Oxford, MS.

Additionally, he is actively involved in his local church and volunteers his time in mentoring programs.
Casey attended college at the University of Mississippi where he obtained a Masters Degree in Accountancy from the University of Mississippi and a love for Ole Miss sports. After college, his professional career began at a national accounting firm which laid a foundation for an in depth understanding of income-producing properties and gained a skill set that would be used in his commercial real estate valuation career.
