In Memoriam

With sadness, we share the news of Don Machholz passing on Tuesday, August 9 in Wikieup, AZ due to complications with  Covid-19.  Don was a real estate appraiser from 2003-2018 and was well known within the appraisal industry. He was active in the Real Estate Appraisers Organization (REAA) and the Nevada County and Placer County Association of Realtors throughout his career. Don was known for his market updates and sense of humor at the weekly marketing meetings. Don significantly helped the appraisal industry by providing free analytical spreadsheets to appraisers nationwide when the 1004MC was first released.
Don’s wife, Michele, continues to battle her own struggles with Covid and really needs all the help she can get.  A GoFundMe has been started with all of the proceeds going to Michele and the family.
