Melvin D. Estrade, Bay St. Louis,MS
"My wife and I decided to move back to Bay St. Louis after living post-Hurricane Katrina for over eight years in Diamondhead, MS. As we met with our real estate agent to discuss our Diamondhead home sale, we decided to have an independent, professional home appraisal before meeting with him again. We met Camille by accident, a wonderful accident, while eating at Pirates Cove Restaurant. We were so impressed by her enthusiasm and professionalism that we decided to contact her to do our pre-listing home appraisal. Camille came to our home on a wednesday afternoon the following week. She was most thorough and professional in her performance of tasks relating to home appraisal. WOW! Measurements, pictures, etc. were made of everything. As committed, she contacted us with our written appraisal on that friday afternoon, as well as suggestions to improve sale opportunities. Armed with that independent, professional appraisal, I met with our real estate agent. His appraisal was far below what Camille presented for our home. Against his better judgment, he agreed to list our home for what Camille suggested. The following wednesday, after some negotiating with the potential buyers, we had a contract in hand for $5,000 less than what Camille suggested. Her knowledge of real estate and marketplace was outstanding. Had we listed the amount the real estate agent suggested, we would have lost almost $20,000. Thank you, Camille McDonald, for your professionalism, counsel, and attention to detail beneficial to us and our family. We also gained a friend!!"

"Professional, responsive and timely. I don't know all the appraisal laws and regulations which seem to change daily, but our experience with Camille has been exceptional. The reports have great data and she seems to clearly understand the market. Very important when you are looking for a professional opinion on the value of something."
Candice Pavolini, Long Beach, MS
"I am a Realtor and in the past, have had the pleasure of working with Camille McDonald on several properties. She is not only extremely knowledgeable, professional and efficient- but also very personable! I recently decided to list my Long Beach home. The Harrison County tax records, an old MLS data sheet and my measurements were completely different in terms of square footage so I called Camille McDonald to get an accurate measurement. Camille, once again, was amazing! She went to the property and texted the dimensions - along with the floor plan - to me! I’ve referred Camille to other clients and told the USDA Department in Jackson MS about her - hoping they will see the benefit of having Camille as one of their preferred appraisers ! Camille McDonald is one of the Best appraisers on the MS Gulf Coast!"
Jourdan Nicaud, Owner Bacchus on the Beach, Hotel Pass Christian Pass Christian, MS
"Camille has done multiple appraisals on high end property for me. She continually impresses with her market knowledge and attention to details. Absolutely perfect when dealing with unique properties that have details other appraisers may miss or not understand the value of especially on historic homes. She is also an unbelievable resource when building new homes on finishes that sell / appraise higher than others"
Bonnie Lambert, Biloxi
"Camille was hired to do an inspection for a lender on my refinance. I am a Real Estate Broker in Texas now living in Biloxi.

She was very knowledgeable and professional, and even more so, she was extremely personable! She went above and beyond to make sure we got the best professional opinion of the value of our home. She was excellent! I would highly recommend Camille!! "

"If you want a expert veteran appraiser....look no further Camille has delivered accurate data on all of her work done for us. She specializes in residential and understands high value properties like no other. Camille came highly recommended by some of the top brokers and developers here in Mississippi. I’m glad we did our homework in finding someone that values their work and strives to getting it done right the first time."
