. D. Jordan & Company was founded in 1980 and incorporated in 1983 as a full service real estate firm. Our mission is to provide reliable solutions to real estate questions. This has resulted in the preparation of more than 10,000 real estate valuations including many categories of properties.

The foundation of our company was based in residential assignments. However, as our clients became aware of our ability to provide accurate appraisals in a timely manner, our assignments migrated to commercial properties. We now experience a strong practice in the appraisal of both residential and commercial properties with each division having specialized professional personnel.

A recent merger with the Rhett Corporation, a leading commercial brokerage company, has allowed our company to grow into the retail area of commercial brokerage and leasing. This activity compliments our existing property management section. We view this as a major step in providing comprehensive commercial services to our clients.
