What Do Assessors Have to Say About Pictometry® Imagery?

December 20, 2017

At the 2017 International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) Conference in Las Vegas, we had the chance to sit down with assessors and appraisers from all over the United States. They told us how they incorporate Pictometry® imagery in their daily workflow and how they experience a better workflow with imagery and data at their fingertips.

Watch the videos below to hear their stories and find out how Pictometry imagery has made a difference in their work.

Greater Efficiency and Safety in Santa Fe County

You might remember Special Projects Administrator Daniel Fresquez from the Santa Fe County Assessor’s Office video “The Appraiser Hunter.” (A+ parody, guys!) He and Chief Commercial Appraiser Isaiah Romero explained the changes that Pictometry imagery from EagleView helps them find in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. They also have an interesting anecdote about how the ability to perform remote assessment helps keep their fellow appraisers safe.

Gus Martinez, County Assessor, and Matthew Montoya, Senior Commercial Appraiser, both from Santa Fe County, told us about how Pictometry imagery and EagleView solutions help them perform their jobs with greater efficiency.
