ABOUT US

Dana Adams Blake

 

I’ve been appraising since 1985 when my mom, Sue Ellen Adams, talked me into becoming an appraiser for her business, Adams Appraisals. I remember hand writing my first appraisal and attaching a few Polaroid photos. My mom gave me great training and ethics and I was hooked from the beginning! What other career would allow one to observe properties, drive the area to look at other properties, perform an analysis comparing them, and then determine what properties are worth? My favorite properties are country and coastal! I really enjoy driving the comparables on those appraisals. My mom passed away in 1993 but Adams Appraisals lives on. More than 30 years later I’m still enjoying the job and the freedoms.  I am involved in the North Bay chapter of the Real Estate Appraisers Association, where I was the Founding Secretary from 2007 to 2010.  I also served as the Corporate Secretary for the Real Estate Appraisers Association from 2009 to 2011.  In my spare time, I was an outdoor education docent with the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation for more than 10 years and I also enjoy skating, hiking, bicycling and kayaking with my husband Pete.  We have two grown children.  Our son Brendan is a high school biology teacher and our daughter Alanya has worked with me at Adams Appraisals since 2011 and is now a certified residential appraiser.

I have been working in the appraisal industry since 2010 and I love working with my mom.  Before becoming an appraiser I lived in Puerto Rico for 3 years and then worked for a wine tour company for a few years before deciding to go into business with my mom as a third generation appraiser.  I feel lucky to have had a wonderful teacher and I continue to learn through classes given by the Real Estate Appraisers Association (where I served as a Board Member from 2014 to 2016) and the Appraisal Institute.  I also became licensed as a Real Estate Broker in 2016 and I am a Realtor.  I enjoy using my Spanish language skills both as an appraiser with clients, as well as when I travel or go salsa dancing with my husband.  In my free time, I like to go on walks with my young sons Diego and Niko, or go wine tasting locally with girlfriends.  I look forward to a long career continuing the business that my grandmother Sue Ellen Adams started more than 40 years ago!
